Surrounded by the stunning scenery of South Devon's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and set in the region of 3 acres of its own beautifully landscaped grounds, the detached family home in East Portlemouth promises its buyer incredible views and a location within touching distance of the beach.

Bay House sits in what is arguably one of the most sought-after waterfront locations in the UK. Surrounded by the stunning scenery of South Devon's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and set in the region of three acres of its own beautifully landscaped grounds, the detached family home in East Portlemouth promises its buyer incredible views and a location within touching distance of the beach.

Bay House was built in the 1930s, its design focused around large windows that create almost panoramic views over the golden sands of Mill Bay and out to sea. A winding driveway leads through the gardens to the property, which sits in the centre of its land in a commanding yet private position. The breathtaking views and truly special location of the property, just a stone's throw from the beach below, make an immediate impression.
Inside, the practical layout of Bay House lends itself perfectly for use as a family home or holiday home and is ideal for entertaining. All reception rooms are light and spacious, each having its own access to the sun terraces. Of particular note is the games room and snug, a large space which links through to the kitchen and which could create a wonderful open-plan living area (subject to the necessary permissions.) On the first and second floor are six good-sized bedrooms with ample bathroom and en-suite facilities.
Nestled into an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bay House is surrounded by stunning scenery. The gardens, extending to approximately three acres, have been landscaped to ensure minimal maintenance with maximum enjoyment. The South west facing dining terrace is a wonderful outside area to enjoy the stunning beach and sea views. Hidden from view is a sheltered area currently used for growing vegetables with raised beds etc. Overall the gardens provide a wonderful setting to complement the design of the house. The large attached garage is a useful area to store vehicles and or boat storage with the benefit of a shower room for cleaning one's sandy toes. Plenty of additional storage space for wetsuits and paddleboards.

Bay House occupies a magnificent position in the incredibly desirable and beautiful estuary village of East Portlemouth, at the heart of the much sought-after South Hams region of South Devon.
With its naturally mild climate, East Portlemouth, the Salcombe Estuary and the surrounding South Hams coastline is the perfect setting for this family home. East Portlemouth itself has a loyal following for those seeking proximity to sandy beaches, all day and evening sunshine, and effortless access to dramatic and idyllic coastlines. The region is known for having a particularly kind climate and its scenery is a patchwork of lush, unspoilt countryside, hidden coombes and golden sands.

Nearby is the vibrant town of Salcombe; once a prosperous fishing village, it retains much of its original charm and character. The town's many restaurants, local pubs and lively shops are all within an easy boat trip of Bay House. The Salcombe Estuary has numerous sandy beaches, coves and sheltered anchorages, all of which help make it an outstanding spot for dinghy sailing, water sports and boating. Salcombe is also a famous yachting centre and provides a perfect cruising base from which to explore France, the Channel Islands, and the harbours and creeks of the West Country. The Georgian market town of Kingsbridge is about 8 miles away, providing additional primary and secondary schools, as well as a more extensive range of interesting local shops, two national supermarkets and many other amenities.
