Salcombe is renowned as a sailing and boating centre located beside one of the loveliest estuaries in the South West with miles of sheltered water and fine sandy beaches on either side towards its mouth. The popular town has an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Crows Nest is located in a private road in the most elevated residential area of the town therefore naturally benefitting from breath-taking seascape and countryside views. Fortescue Road is in close proximity to The Berry which features a pretty woodland area making it a popular spot for dog walkers and families. This property is just a 20 minutes' walk to the town centre, its harbour, slipways and pontoons.

Crows Nest is a detached house with flexible accommodation that is spread over 3 floors with a separate entrance that accesses the first floor. The ground floor features a kitchen, dining room, sitting room, sun room and one bedroom, with four more on the first floor and the master suite on the top floor. Previously enjoyed as a successful holiday let property, Crows Nest has a cream rendered exterior with wooden cladding that gives it a standout look among the other properties in this quiet road.
