About this property
NO ONWARD CHAIN A detached house with garage, garden and sea views, in a quiet village on the coastline of South West Devon. Over 1600 sq ft versatile floor space.
The detached house, which was built in the dormer style, is deceptive from the exterior. Usefully extended to the rear, the most significant improvement has been the creation of a recessed top floor balcony, or loggia, in 2015, which provides this area and the adjacent room, which could be living space or a bedroom, with long Southerly views to the sea.
Longlands Drive is a well-matured residential area of detached properties set high in the village sheltered from the exposure of the coastline. The property has a southerly aspect with the English Channel clearly visible over the rooftops from the inset balcony and upper sitting room. The beach, which lies about half a mile away, overlooks the constantly active water of the mouth of Plymouth Sound with the South East Cornwall coastline beyond.
Heybrook Bay is a little-known, surprisingly accessible, coastal village away from popular tourist haunts within the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, set on a peninsula in the westernmost portion of South Devon, on the South West Coast Path. Much of the coastline in this area is National Trust owned and is adjacent to the Wembury Bay Marine Conservation Area. Plymouth City Centre is only about 7 miles away, while there are local shops and other facilities at Down Thomas (1 mile), Wembury (2.5 miles) and Plymstock (3.5 miles). Many eventual buyers only discover this area having been unexpectedly introduced to a property here.
From the A379 south east of Plymouth at the Elburton Hotel take Springfield Road signposted towards Wembury. Pass through the small shopping area of Elburton Village. At the following traffic lights turn left (Reservoir Road which becomes Wembury Road). At the filling station/local food store (at the top of the hill) turn right into Staddiscombe Road. At the T junction by the Staddy sports club turn left. In about a mile turn right to Down Thomas. Continue through Down Thomas, passing the Mussel Inn on the left, and continue to Heybrook Bay. Longlands Drive will be found on the left before the road drops down towards the water.
