This unusual waterside property is a converted semi-detached boathouse in an unrivalled position on the shore of the Salcombe estuary. Although just a short walk from Kingsbridge, its secluded and peaceful location makes it seem that you are far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Superb views from the balcony and most windows extend across the water to unspoiled countryside on the opposite side of the estuary. At high tide the water often laps the footings of the house, where small craft can be moored or beached and with a slipway nearby this is a great place to enjoy a watersport based holiday. At low tide the shoreline offers wonderful opportunities for bird watching, glorious walking along the estuary, crabbing for the young, or just to watch the passing yachts and river craft and enjoy the natural beauty of these stunning surroundings.
A long, shallow flight of steps (53) and pathway lead from the parking bay to front door. Spacious, comfortable living room with sofas, chairs, cane table and 4 chairs, open fireplace, TV/DVD, video, radio/CD player, extensive windows and terrace door to sun deck balcony overlooking the estuary. Side door leads to conservatory dining room with table to seat 8, also accessed by a walkway from the entrance door, a good area for wet gear, wellies etc. An attractive marble top bar in the sitting room extends into the kitchen with gas cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and walk-in larder with shelving. A washer/dryer is located in the utility area at the end of the entrance corridor. Narrow steep stairs lead up to two bedrooms. Double room (4ft 6in bed) with fitted wardrobes and lovely views. Twin room with 3ft pine beds. Small bathroom with bath, shower over, hand shower attachment, basin and WC. From the living room a wrought iron spiral staircase leads down to the lower tiled level.
