About this property
A wonderful detached stone built property, immaculately presented both inside and out, with approximately 2 acres of grounds and woodland all within walking distance of Bantham Beach.
Built of local stone Clanacombe Lodge was originally part of the beautiful Clanacombe Estate. It is now a superb spacious family home, which sits in a lovely position with breath-taking views and rolling countryside.
The property offers approximately 1400 Sq. ft of accommodation comprising spacious L-Shaped living/dining room with a stone fireplace, a large kitchen/breakfast room, WC and ample storage cupboards on the ground floor. While the upstairs houses 3 double bedrooms, all with built-in storage, a family bathroom, and an en-suite off the master bedroom. In the basement are a further 2 large fully built-out rooms, currently use for storage that would make a good home office or games room or could be converted to add extra bedrooms.
OUTSIDE A timber gate opens to steps leading to an outside sitting and dining area being bounded by a stone built wall with planted shrub and flower border. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn with shrubs.
Opposite the property is a 2.6 acre wood where you can walk through to the top of the valley and enjoy wonderful views across West Buckland to the coast and Burgh Island. There is a long forgotten and quite special 'secret garden' in a dell in the woods, apparently planted by the gardeners at Clanacombe in the 1920's.
West Buckland is an unspoilt large hamlet located just inland from the coast and enjoying peace and tranquillity, being away from main road traffic and set within a valley which is protected from the prevailing wind. Nearby are the better known
coastal villages of Thurlestone and Bantham. Bantham beach (1 mile walk) is the key attraction - ranked by Lonely Planet as the number one beach in the UK, with beautiful sand dunes and good waves for surfing. Bantham is arguably one of the prettiest villages in the South Hams, at the mouth of the River Avon, and with views across to Bigbury beach and the famous Burgh Island. Thurlestone is renowned for its 18-hole links golf course but also has some fine beaches, a village inn, a shop, church and a hotel which offers country club facilities to non-residents, including squash courts, swimming pool and a 9-hole golf course. The market town of Kingsbridge is close at hand, as is the famous sailing centre of Salcombe on another delightful South Hams estuary.
