About this property
A 3 bedroom detached property in this sought after location with wonderful South facing views overlooking Bolt Head and the sea beyond. Integral double garage, gardens and scope to create an individually designed family home.
Windsong is located in a private road in the most elevated residential area of the town therefore naturally benefiting from breathtaking seasacpe and countryside views. Fortescue Road is in close proximity to The Berry which features a pretty woodland area making it a popular spot for dog walkers and families. This property is just a 20 minutes' walk to the town centre, its harbour, slipways and pontoons.
The accommodation is arranged over 2 floors with the entrance, living areas and balcony on the first floor maximising the wonderful views towards South Sands at the mouth of the Salcombe Estuary. There are 3 double bedrooms on the ground floor, main bedrooms with en-suite, a family bathroom and access to the rear sun terrace and garden. Outside the property is approached via its own driveway leading to the integral double garage and there is scope to renovate/redevelop subject to the necessary consents.
The beautiful estuary town of Salcombe is located in the heart of the South Devon region known as the South Hams, which is known for having an uncommonly temperate climate, verdant unspoilt countryside, hidden combs and a spectacular coastline. Arguable one of the most sought after waterfront locations in the UK, Salcombe is the perfect setting for this beautiful home. Once a thriving fishing village, Salcombe still retains much of its original charm and character. The property sits within the short distance of the town, with its many restaurants, local pubs and boutique shops. More extensive shopping and amenities are available in Kingsbridge. The Salcombe Estuary has numerous sandy beaches, coves and sheltered anchorages, all of which make it an excellent base for dingy 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.
The A38 Devon Expressway is about 15 miles to the north, providing dual carriageway access to the M5 motorway at Exeter. There are good Intercity rail services from Totnes to London Paddington and a growing number of UK and international flights from Exeter airport. Brittany ferries operate services to France, Spain and the Channel Islands from their terminal at Plymouth.
On entering Salcombe, continue straight ahead at the first crossroads, following Main Road around the side of the hill. At the next junction fork left into Devon Road and immediately left again into St Dunstans Road. Towards the top of St Dunstans Road turn left into Fortescue Road which is a private road. Proceed along here for about 150 yards and the property will be found on the left-hand side.
