Tenure: Freehold

Highwood dates back to the early part of the last century and has been designed so the main living spaces and bedrooms enjoy the far reaching sea views. The house occupies one of
the best positions on Moult Hill. Until recently there was planning permission for a large extension and conversion of the top floor into a self contained apartment.

The accommodation currently comprises of an entrance hall with parquet flooring and staircase, a sitting room with a large bay window and open fireplace, a dining room with wonderful views, a kitchen/breakfast room with oak fitted units and integrated appliances, a pantry, utility room with a shower and a cloakroom. Upstairs on the first floor are four bedrooms, three of them south facing, the family bathroom and a separate WC. On the second floor is a spacious dual aspect studio/games room with great views and two cast iron fireplaces.

Highwood sits in an elevated position on Moult Hill with south facing along the coast to Prawle Point. It is close to the sandy beaches of South and North Sands where there are several hotels and restaurants, along with a passenger ferry service to Salcombe.

Salcombe is one of the most prominent coastal resorts on the south coast of England at the mouth of the Kingsbridge estuary. The town is in the heart of the South Hams and is well known as a yachting centre, popular with both national and international sailors. The town has a good yacht club, some excellent quays and slipways with a number of sandy bays. Salcombe is well placed as a centre from which to sail to other coastal resorts including Dartmouth, Plymouth, Fowey and Falmouth. The resort offers a wide range of everyday amenities including a number of unique and upmarket shops, superb restaurants, atmospheric pubs with great food and a wonderful safe family atmosphere. The property is readily accessible to Kingsbridge, a market town at the head of the estuary, which is approximately 6 miles from Salcombe.

The City and naval port of Plymouth is approximately 20 miles to the West and the Cathedral City and County town of Exeter is approximately 45 miles to the North East. There are frequent rail services from Totnes and Plymouth to London Paddington. Exeter and Newquay's International Airports offer an ever increasing number of domestic and international flights, including 2 flights a day to London City Airport.

Highwood is approached off the private lane to a detached garage and a path leading down to a large stone terrace with wrought iron railings, where stunning sea views can be enjoyed. Steps at the front of the house lead down to a level area of lawn surrounded by hedging and a castellated stone wall. The remainder of the garden is sloping and is planted with a variety of shrubs and established trees. A path winds down to the lower gardens, at the foot of which steps lead down to Cliff Road and provide a shortcut to South Sands beach. To the rear of the house are three stores and a gardeners WC.
