Tenure: Freehold

A fine example of an Edwardian four bedroom detached house which is immaculately decorated and full of period features and arranged to make the most of its stunning estuary, creek and countryside views.

Anchorage is an Edwardian detached house located in an elevated position in this popular residential area, which is just a short walk from the centre of town and the boating facilities of the Salcombe Estuary. This property is full of period features with high ceilings, picture rails, fireplaces and internal pitch pine doors gracing most rooms. Two bow windows on both the ground and first floors make the most of the stunning estuary views of South Pool and Batson Creeks bordered by ever changing countryside scenes that include Snapes Point and Scoble Point.

Anchorage has been decorated to a high standard in keeping with its 1905 origins. It is laid out over three floors with a second floor master bedroom that again benefits from breathtaking rural and estuary views. The property benefits from a south facing landscaped and easy-to-maintain back garden, off-road parking for two vehicles and a cellar that has potential for development.
