About this property

A beautifully restored Devon Longhouse set in approximately one acre of glorious landscaped gardens with delightful countryside views. Detached 3 bedroom coach house available by separate negotiation. EPC Rating F.

This is a place where one can enjoy tranquil seclusion without being isolated. The village amenities of Malborough are just 3/4 of a mile to the north west, including filling station/shop, pubs, restaurant, church, primary school and the village hall. 10 minutes drive away is the bustling market town of Kingsbridge with excellent shopping facilities, sports centre and a highly rated school.

Salcombe itself lies beside one of the most beautiful estuaries in the world, with miles of sheltered water, perfect for sailing and boating. There are golden beaches on either side of the estuary and spectacular cliff walks over National Trust headlands leading to scattered coves. Within the town there is a good range of pubs, restaurants and select shops, together with waterfront quays and mooring pontoons.

Lower Collaton Farmhouse is a fine example of a Devon Longhouse, the oldest part of which is thought to date back at least 450 years. From its wonderful south facing position it enjoys splendid views over surrounding countryside.

The house has in recent years been skillfully restored and refurbished to an exceptionally high standard and the accommodation includes three well proportioned reception rooms, a splendid farmhouse kitchen and four bedrooms.

A path of slate leads from the gravelled parking area at the side of the house to a traditional wooden front door to:-
