Situation - Sea Maiden is a delightful cottage benefiting from wonderful sea views and a private and secluded location, just off the coast road between Teignmouth and Torquay, near Maidencombe.
Maidencombe is a terrific little hamlet with a pub. The wonderful beach won the Quality Coast Award 2009 and the Good Beach Guide 2009. The property is about three miles south of the historic seaside town of Teignmouth at the mouth of the Teign Estuary. Within the town there are a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, and a selection of water sports available from the bay. There is an excellent primary school at the nearby village of Stokeinteignhead, a village shop, church and pub. A first-rate range of recreational, educational and cultural facilities can be found in the delightful town of Torquay, a few miles to the south, which has the highly regarded Torquay Grammar School for boys and girls and, of course, the Marina.
There are mainline rail links to London from nearby Newton Abbot, with the M5 motorway also within easy reach. The Cathedral city of Exeter is approximately 19 miles away with many big name shops, plus an airport that connects with various European destinations.

Description - Set in delightful landscaped gardens with lovely sea views towards Lyme Bay over fields which form part of the protected Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust land, Sea Maiden is a perfect hideaway. The property makes a great second home but has more than enough accommodation to be a comfortable family home. Set over three levels, the sitting and dining rooms, as well as the three bedrooms, all benefit from the sea views. There is a lower garden level with a separate access and further useful rooms which have a variety of potential uses and, if required, could be internally connected to the house above (subject to the necessary permissions).

Accommodation - Entering into the hallway where there is a cloakroom and stairs rise to the first floor. The majority of the reception rooms have smart wooden flooring. Off the hall is the sitting room, which has a large floor to ceiling window with sliding glass doors, allowing you to appreciate the stunning coastal view over the gardens. The dining room is accessed through an arch from the sitting room and also benefits from the views, there is enough space for a good size dining table as well as more informal seating, if required. Another door from the sitting room takes you into a further hall which accesses bedroom three, a shower room, and the utility room with space for a washing and drying machine, as well as storage and a sink. The kitchen has views over the garden to the front of the house. There is a comprehensive range of wall and floor mounted units under a white granite worktop with inset sink. There is a built in eye- level oven and grill plus a gas hob and a fitted dishwasher from the Neff range.
Upstairs you will find the impressive master bedroom suite which has terrific views out to the English Channel, its own dressing room with fitted wardrobes as well as an impressive en suite. Bedroom two also benefits from the elevated views and has fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom is accessed off the landing. There is useful eaves storage running the width of the property accessed from the bathroom.
Accessed from steps to the side of the property are the garden level rooms, currently two rooms used as a home office and family room, but have potential for all manner of different uses. If required they could even be connected internally to the main house above (subject to the necessary permissions) as they have been in the past. There is more useful storage to the rear of these rooms.

Garden And Grounds - The property is accessed via a drive from the main road, on the corner of the drive is a double garage with power and light. At the bottom of the drive is a gravelled parking area. From here there are meandering steps through the terraced front garden, with a variety of trees, shrubs and flower beds. The back garden is broadly level with areas of terracing and lawn with a pond with water feature. There is a decked area which provides a lovely viewing point with space for a table and chairs, and a gate that leads to the Coast & Countryside Trust Land and coast path beyond.
