Property Description

Full description

FILM TOUR AVAILABLE. EASTCLIFF HOUSE is a large spacious Georgian period property overlooking the beach, estuary and open sea. The accommodation is set largely over 4 floors although there is also a cellar which is accessed by stone steps leading down to a cobbled area.


Shaldon is a quintessential unspoilt and highly sought South Devon village which nestles quietly on the south bank of the River Teign Estuary.

With Georgian architecture at its very heart, mixed with pretty thatched cottages, meandering donkey-wide lanes and streets, quaint shops and traditional village bowling green,it still retains the charm of its fishing village heritage.  In recent years, Shaldon has evolved into a somewhat sophisticated hot-spot for gourmet diners with its several fine restaurants, excellent cafés and coffee shops. The local chefs source an abundance of superb local produce for their menus and fine local wines may be found which are produced by a nearby vineyard.

Shaldon is served by regular bus and taxi services and Teignmouth train station connects to London Paddington. A small open passenger ferry operates from the beach and transports passengers the short, picturesque distance across the estuary to Teignmouth. This historic passenger ferry service is thought to be one of the oldest in England. 

Shaldon also boasts four Churches, GP’s surgery, post office, primary school of excellence, a variety of small independent shops including an award winning butchers, an artisan bakery, grocers, pharmacy and village pubs. The many attractions include two sandy beaches with Ness beach being accessed by an exciting smugglers tunnel, small mammal zoo, water sports, sailing, rowing, coastal walks, pitch and putt course and the Botanical gardens which provide beautiful views across the Teign Estuary and Lyme Bay. The Shaldon Water Carnival and Regatta are held annually during August. This is just some of the many things which Shaldon village has to offer residents and visitors alike.

is a large spacious Georgian period property overlooking the beach, estuary and open sea. The accommodation is set largely over 4 floors although there is also a cellar which is accessed by stone steps leading down to a cobbled area which might easily lend itself to becoming a wine cellar or storage area for water sport or boating equipment.  The panoramic views over the water are enviable with the beach being immediately opposite on the other side of a small road.

The property allows plenty of versatility with adaptable accommodation throughout making either a superb family home, spacious living for an extended family, enough space to accommodate dependent relatives or alternatively there is great business potential for home and income.

Currently, the house is split into owners accommodation on the ground floor and with the upper floors being used for holiday letting. The current level of letting generates a modest income of approximately £20,000 but with greater business focus this could be increased.  However, the property could also easily revert back to a single residence.

On the ground floor of the property is a modern kitchen with granite work surfaces and a Rayburn. The kitchen is open plan with the sitting room and is fitted with an Aga multi-fuel stove. Both rooms have impressive views over the water.  Behind the sitting room is a dining room and a double bedroom with en-suite. Off the hallway is a further W.C./cloakroom and a utility room.

The first floor has a newly fitted kitchen (for the letting unit) again with granite work surfaces.  Behind is a study area leading to a newly fitted raised decked sun terrace looking down over the rear garden and giving a delightful place for al-fresco dining. There is also a sitting and dining room on this floor.  The second and third floors are bedroom accommodation having 3 bedrooms on the second floor and 2 bedrooms on the third. There are 3 en-suite bedrooms. Behind the house is a further bedroom annex with en-suite shower room looking out over the rear garden.

The charming rear garden is well maintained and enclosed. There is a lawn with patio/barbecue area, raised flower beds, a variety of mature flowering shrubs form the borders and backdrop. Additionally, there is a garden tool store and log storage area under and to the side of the decked sun terrace above.  

An important feature of the property is that to the front of the house there is a forecourt with OFF ROAD PARKING for up to 4 cars. To the side of the property is a useful covered way which leads to the entrance door and rear garden. This secure covered area makes an ideal place for perhaps keeping cycles or surfboards etc.,

The property is approached via a spacious forecourt giving a private parking area for up to four cars. Being laid with paviors and bounded by a low brick built wall which incorporates a raised flower bed.  A timber, part glazed entrance door opens into a long and useful covered passage way with wire mesh glass roofing and pavior flooring which leads to the main entrance door, cabin/annexe and to the rear garden.
