About this property

An individual 5 bedroom contemporary detached house set in a generous size plot with beautifully landscaped gardens within easy walking distance of Salcombe's town centre and harbours. Ample parking and Estuary views.

Situated on a quiet, private road close to the heart of Salcombe, Swiss Cottage is extremely well presented throughout. The property is thoughtfully laid out over 3 floors providing a particularly spacious kitchen/dining room, 3 further reception rooms, 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The rooms are large and light and offer estuary views from the upper floors.

The present owners have refurbished the property throughout to a high quality specification. They have created a house of contemporary style with particular emphasis on natural light, high ceilings and fabulously designed kitchen and bathrooms.

The entrance hall has a feature pebble floor and leads both to the open plan kitchen/dining room and the utility room with a useful shower. There are plenty of cupboards providing generous storage areas. The kitchen is well equipped with bespoke cabinetry and a breakfast bar and there is a large dining area. The mezzanine area above comprises a TV/media room, a bathroom and a bedroom. The oak staircase leads up into a spectacular glazed and vaulted room which is currently used as a games room.

On the first floor is a large triple aspect south facing sitting room with wonderful views. There are 2 further bedrooms on this level sharing a Jack & Jill en-suite bathroom.

The master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and a further guest suite with shower room are on the 2nd floor, as well as a separate WC. The front bedroom enjoys panoramic views across Salcombe town with the estuary and beaches of East Portlemouth beyond.

Swiss Cottage boasts an abundance of design features including natural wood floors, bespoke kitchen, modern bathrooms with stone flooring, vaulted ceilings, mezzanine levels, vast glazed areas and underfloor heating to ground floor.

Outside, the property is approached through double gates leading to a tarmacadam driveway which offers plenty of parking for several vehicles/boat. The landscaped gardens are south and west facing, with steps leading up and down to sun terraces, decks, established flower beds and a small orchard of fruit trees under planted with wild flowers. There is also a hot water outdoor shower and shed.

Salcombe is renowned as a sailing and boating centre, located beside one of the loveliest estuaries in the South West with miles of sheltered water and fine sandy beaches on either side towards its mouth. The popular town has an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

On entering Salcombe via the A381 Kingsbridge Road turn let into Bonfire Hill (just before reaching the filling station on the right hand side). Follow this road as it winds down the hill and then turn left into Coronation Road. Take the next turning left into Forster Road and the property will be found along on the right hand side.
