Situation And Description - Broadwater occupies a superb position, just a few hundred yards from the National Trust owned South Milton sands and the prestigious 18-hole Thurlestone golf club. It also immediately adjoins South Milton Ley Reserve, a 40 acre wildlife refuge which was designated as a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) in 1984 and is a veritable haven for up to 200 bird species in a typical year.

The centre of Thurlestone village itself is less than half a mile away and, with its many picturesque, thatched cottages and colourful gardens, is the epitome of a South Devon village. It is well-known for its 4-star, award-winning hotel and it also has a popular Inn as well as a post office/general stores, church and highly regarded primary school.

The villages of Hope Cove and Bantham are within comfortable walking distance along the beautiful cliff top pathways which afford stunning views at every turn whilst the market town of Kingsbridge is only some 5 miles distant.

Salcombe, Devons southernmost town, is some 6 miles away and with its beautiful harbour and unspoilt estuary, the town is a Mecca for yachting and water sports. Salcombe also offers an excellent range of fine shops, restaurants and inns as well as lovely, sandy beaches and spectacular cliff top walking.

We understand that the house was built in the 1960s. It is finished with part tile hung/ part rough-cast rendered and colour-washed external elevations beneath a tiled roof and the accommodation is double glazed and oil-fired centrally heated throughout.

It occupies a particularly generous plot extending to around 4/10ths of an acre and enjoys splendid views over the Ley to South Milton Sands and the iconic Thurlestone Rock with Bolt Tail in the distance.
