A beautifully presented, light and spacious detached home with four double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a garage and driveway all within walking distance of the beautiful Torcross, Slapton Sands and Slapton Ley nature reserve.

Nearby Kingsbridge offers a range of local and independent shops, restaurants, pubs, two supermarkets, a cinema, a leisure centre with swimming pool, medical centre and community hospital, a secondary school and churches all whilst retaining a small town feel with a strong community. There are regular sporting activities as well as markets and social events. With boat moorings along the estuary and quay, regular public transport and road links to nearby Dartmouth, Salcombe and surrounding villages.
Located in a highly desirable South Hams village, the area has an abundance of beaches, coves and country and coastal walks.

Entrance Hall
A level driveway offers access to a pathway that crosses around the front of the house to the covered entranceway. A uPVC obscure double glazed door and sidelight offer entrance into the hallway. It's a spacious reception area with a double panel radiator, stairs up to the two first floor bedrooms and a bathroom, and under-stairs airing cupboard, and doors to:

A very bright room with twin double glazed picture windows and a set of double glazed patio doors. The focal point is an attractive exposed brick open fireplace with a cast iron grate within. An archway opens out into the kitchen dining room.

Kitchen / Diner
Again, lots of natural light from uPVC double glazed windows at each end, and a side aspect window and set of double glazed patio doors opening up into a conservatory. The kitchen has a full range of shaker style base and eye level units with butcher block style work surfaces. There is a stainless steel one-and-a-half bowl sink unit with a swan neck mixer tap. This sink is nicely centred under the window for good natural lighting. The four ring halogen hob is adjacent, inset, and with an electric oven beneath it. There is plumbing and space for a full size dishwasher and room for a tall freestanding fridge freezer. The oil fired boiler is discretely located in a recessed nook in one corner. The dining area is easily big enough for six to eight-seater dining set. There is a single panel radiator and the flooring is original, stripped and lightly varnished. A door leads out to a small inner lobby where there is a large cupboard plumbed for washing machine and dryer, the lobby opens out into a covered entrance porch, closest to the driveway and detached single garage.

Lovely space, very private and overlooking the south facing garden. A pair of sliding doors gives access to that outside space.

Bedroom Three
Side aspect uPVC double glazed window offering glimpses of Slapton Ley, a freshwater nature reserve, and the sea beyond. This room is a good size ground floor double room and has a built in, louvre fronted, triple wardrobe. There are twin overhead bedside reading lights, and a bed centred switch for the main light. There is also a large double panel radiator.

Bedroom Four
Side aspect uPVC double glazed window which is not overlooked. This room is also a good size ground floor double room and has a couple of overhead built in cupboards. There is a large single panel radiator.

One of two full size bathrooms, this with twin obscure double glazed windows to the side aspects. This room features a panel bath with a mixer tap, shower attachment and side screen. There is also a close- coupled W.C. and an adjacent pedestal wash hand basin with a monobloc mixer tap. There are two single panel radiators and tiled splash areas.

First Floor Landing
Galleried, with stripped banisters and painted balustrades. Lit by a Velux roof light. Doors to:

Bedroom One
A lovely sized room with a front aspect double glazed picture window that offers Ley views from bedside level. The main side aspect uPVC double glazed window offers those Ley views and far reaching sea views. This room has twin singe panel radiators and a built in double wardrobe with linen storage on one side.

Bedroom Two
Another super room, with two oversize Velux windows, offering beautiful views over that freshwater Ley and the sea views. Those Velux are low down, thus offering bed level views. There is also a front aspect uPVC double glazed window, so there's good natural light in this room. There is a built in double wardrobe, with linen storage to one side and an automatic light. There is also a large double panel radiator.

Bathroom Two
More pleasant space with a rear aspect obscure double glazed window and Velux. There is a panel bath with matching white ceramic tiled splashbacks. There is a close-coupled W.C. And a pedestal wash hand basin, and a shower cubicle wth an electric shower within. There is also a single panel radiator and a heated towel rail both wth independent thermostatic controllers. This room is spacious and offers the ability to Jack and Jill from the master bedroom.


There is a significant level driveway and turning point for several vehicles, which leads to a single detached garage with a metal up and over door. The home is set back from the roadside and the garden has an abundance of mature plantings in various beds and borders. The front garden is enclosed by larch lap fencing and is lawned, which wraps around to the side, to a secure gate offering access to the rear garden area.


The rear garden faces south and offers a high degree of privacy and seclusion. Again, lawned with flower beds and borders containing many evergreens and various foliage. There is a timber lean-to for wood storage and a courtesy door leading to the garage. There is access from the garden back into the conservatory, and through into the dining and kitchen areas. The whole plot is level, and seems to be quite low maintenance for good lock up and leave purposes.


Block built single with a metal up and over door. The roof is vaulted and tiled, which offers further storage potential. The oil tank is discretely located behind this.
