About this property

An exciting opportunity to own a substantial detached property in a tranquil and private position close to South Sands beach with land extending to approx. one acre and scope for refurbishment / re-development, subject to necessary consents.


Country Life is a detached property with approx. 2898 sq ft of light, airy and versatile accommodation spanning over 3 floors including an attached 2 bedroomed annexe. All rooms feature large window openings, with main rooms enjoying Southerly aspects and taking advantage of the surrounding landscaped gardens and the countryside beyond.

Outside, the property is approached via a drive with ample space for parking with 2 large double garages, workshop and store room ideal for boat storage. The house is set within a plot of about one acre with various sun terraces, lawns and wooded areas featuring a pond and bridge over. To the side of the property is an established vineyard and patio surrounded with mature trees and shrubs.

In need of updating with the potential for redevelopment, subject to the necessary planning consents, this detached property has plenty of scope to be transformed into a stunning Salcombe home.


The vibrant town of Salcombe, once a thriving fishing village, retains much of its original charm and character. The town's many restaurants, local pubs and lively shops are all within a short walk of the property. The Salcombe Estuary has numerous sandy beaches, coves and sheltered anchorages, all of which make it an excellent base for dinghy sailing, water sports, boating and long walks along the beautiful coastline. Salcombe is also a famous yachting centre and provides a perfect cruising base from which to explore France, the Channel Islands and the beautiful harbours and creeks of the West Country. South Sands with the National Trust property and grounds of Overbecks a short distance away and the coastal pathway to Bolt Head, Soar Mill Cove and Hope Cove are all close by.

Approaching Salcombe from Kingsbridge turn off the A381 off Malborough village by going straight ahead at the crossroads into Collaton Road. Follow this country lane for just over a mile, following the signs for North Sands. This road then goes down a steep hill and on arriving at a T-junction turn right. Continue to the bottom of the hill passing South Sands beach on your left and then follow the road as it turns sharply to the left and then immediately take the sharp right turn and follow this road towards Rew and the property will be found on the right hand side.
