The Lanterns is situated in a peaceful location at the end of a quiet, private road in one of the most elevated residential areas of Salcombe, benefitting from sea, coastal and rural views and within a minute's walk to the natural beauty spot, The Berry.

This property was built five years ago to provide over 4,000 sq ft, including garage, of flexible accommodation with a white rendered, semi timber-clad exterior complementing slate tiled roofing and aluminium pipework.

Internally, The Lanterns includes four double bedrooms and two other rooms that could be used as double bedrooms but are currently being utilised as a study and garden room. Solar-powered hot water, under-floor gas central heating, CAT5 cabling, mood lighting and a remote control alarm provide the hi-tech infrastructure of this property while engineered oak flooring and solid oak doors, granite worktops, glass balustrades, stainless steel handrails and quality fitted furniture supplies its luxurious comfort.

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.
