Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The ultimate location to call home, The Lodge at Strete lies above the crescent of Start Bay in the coastal village of Strete.

This stunning period home has been designed and finished to an incredibly high finish to include handmade Treyone Kitchen, Mandarin Stone Tiling, Duravit sanitary with Grohe fittings. For peace of mind there is a 10 year warranty and the technical spec is unrivalled and includes fast Internet wiring, solar roof, Heatmiser Smart control and Tesla battery car charger point. 

Tucked between South Devon's undulating hills and its rugged and dramatic coastline, Strete
village is within striking distance of Dartmouth and provides unparalleled panoramic views
across Start Bay that stretch to Start Point Lighthouse.

Nestled alongside Strete's charming thatched cottages and quintessential rose gardens, The
Lodge's commanding elevated position capitalises on the breathtaking panorama, boasting
sea views from within the property itself and from the garden. The house also benefits from a self-contained apartment over two floors, allowing the property to support multi-generational living. 

Starting in the spacious entrance hallway, decorated with artisan tiling, you are greeted by a grand sweeping staircase rising to the first-floor galleried landing, which echoes the generous period proportions throughout this unique property.

Nestled in the heart of the home, the bespoke contemporary kitchen and breakfast room - handmade in Devon - comes with Silestone quartz worktops and hand-finished cabinets, integrated Neff appliances and Quooker boiling tap.

On the opposite side of the hallway, you will discover a cosy and delightful club room that could also be a lovely library. This relaxing space connects via double doors into a front-facing home office/snug that frames the coastal scenery. 

Stepping back into the hallway head into the garden room with a wall of built in storage and wine fridge, Critall doors open out into the rear walled garden. There's an ever so useful utility room with cloakroom off.

Before heading upstairs sneak a peek into the lower ground floor cinema/games room a fabulous spot to chill out and watch your favourite film. 

Ascending the grand staircase, you will arrive on a wonderful galleried landing, where steps
lead to the principal bedroom with en suite benefiting from panoramic sea views through the
front and side windows. Four further good-sized bedrooms two with en suites and sea views and a fabulous family bathroom with freestanding spa bath and walk in shower complete the first floor. 

The self-contained apartment comes with its own entrance from the main parking area, The inner hall, provides access and opens to a utility room. A door then connects to the
main living area. From the living area, stairs ascend to a primary bedroom with dual aspect windows granting sea views and a door to the walled garden. The en suite with feature sliding door has luxury, designer sanitaryware. The second bedroom has equally pleasant garden views and an en suite shower room.  

A gravel and paved path draws you round from the front of the property with an ornamental, wrought-iron pedestrian gate to the road. The walled front garden, provides the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee and savour those ever-changing views over Start Bay, Slapton Sands, and the lighthouse beyond.

A second wrought-iron gate continues to the rear walled garden - a charming and private
outdoor haven with lawn and established shrub and flower borders. From here, a gate links
through into the apartment garden. Featuring sea views along with colourful flower beds and
an apple tree, you can just imagine relaxing here, listening to the crash of the waves in the near distance. Gardeners can store their essential equipment in the pitched, stone-built potting shed or it would make the perfect den or home office. 

South Devon is renowned for its green country pursuits, pristine coastline, quintessentially
English villages and small, well-regarded schools. Strete is no exception: benefiting greatly
from its idyllic position sandwiched between AONB countryside, the South West Coast Path,
and long, family-friendly beaches.

So why not grab the buckets, spades, canoes and paddle boards and walk or drive to Strete Gate Beach and Slapton Sands? After the sea air has boosted your appetite, saunter along to Torcross at the southern tip, where you can enjoy a fish and chip supper on the sea wall or visit the Start Bay Inn and other fabulous restaurants. Nature enthusiasts can also stop here to explore the Slapton Ley Nature Reserve. The blue-flag awarded Blackpool Sands, which recently hosted a musical festival, is also only a short hop away.

Within the village itself, the residents come together at The King's Arms - an 18th Century listed pub - to socialise and absorb the stunning elevated views. Shop for the daily necessities at the village store and post office, which serves up local meat and vegetables and homemade cakes and scones as well as other essentials.

Nearby Dartmouth contains a great range of shops and supermarkets too, alongside a fantastic range of historic pubs, award-winning restaurants, marinas and yachting facilities. Stretch your legs and exercise the dog at the village green and along the South West Coast Path - if you're lucky, you may occasionally spot seals and dolphins. There's also a parish hall and a friendly church. Further afield, the wild beauty of Dartmoor welcomes hikers, torclimbers, and the chance to indulge in some superb cream teas.

Notable educational institutions in the area include the Ofsted-rated 'Outstanding' Stoke
Fleming Community Primary, a scattering of brilliant independents in and around nearby
Totnes, and the 'Outstanding' Kingsbridge Community College. Two schools within Torquay
and Plymouth have also been rated in the Top 50 by The Sunday Times.
