About this property
A superb opportunity to acquire one of Bigbury On Sea's finest and most interesting properties from a bygone era, in a prime position with extensive gardens surrounding the property commanding panoramic sea and coastal views.
This colonial style property dates back to 1910 and has not been on the open market for more than 50 years and occupies what is arguably one of the best waterside settings in Bigbury On Sea with wonderful panoramic views over the coastline to Bantham Beach, Hope Cove and Burgh Island.
Dominated by its expansive and panoramic views over the iconic Burgh Island and the South Devon coastline, the house is set back from the waterfront in an ideal position strategically set to take full advantage of the totally absorbing vista.
The house offers a tremendous amount of charm, in the Colonial style, which is echoed throughout the property with a fine selection of features typical of the Arts and Crafts movement.
The ground floor accommodation flows well with French doors leading out from the principal rooms onto a wonderful sea-facing veranda which runs across the full width of the house. Beautiful stained-glass doors open from the main hall. A wide hall/living area, with parquet flooring and an ornate staircase, is complemented by two reception rooms, rear entrance porch and WC, separate kitchen and side conservatory and walk in larder. There are also two double bedrooms on the ground floor which include an impressive principal suite with French doors leading out to the veranda, dressing area and en-suite. The first-floor accommodation is again generous in proportion with three further bedrooms. From the fourth bedroom there is access to a sun room which enjoys superb sea views stretching as far as the eye can see. On the first floor there is also a family bathroom and store area with further eaves storage.
Outside the gardens are nothing short of extraordinary with sea views from every aspect and wide expanses of lawn with delicate flower borders extending down to large level lawn, known by our clients as the tennis lawn. The veranda extends to a raised patio area with central steps leading down the lawns. To the side of the property there are various outbuildings including a single garage and potting sheds.
By separate negotiation there are two additional pieces of land including a potential building plot (subject to the necessary planning consent being obtained) with access onto Marine Drive.
Mains electricity, water and private drainage.
