Quote from the family:

" We have lived very happily at Fairfield for 38 years. During this time, we have brought up our 2 children, looked after our aged parents until they needed to go into a care home and at various times, accommodated our sons and their families in between houses. The house is ideal for multi-generational living with two kitchens and sitting/dining spaces. The garden is enclosed and ideal for children and pets. There is something very special about being able to sit up in bed in the morning with a cuppa and being able to see right down to Torcross and Slapton Ley. There are lovely views of fields and the sea and we go on the live shipping map to discover more about the boats we can see through binoculars. On still evenings, one can hear the waves breaking on the beach.

Start Point and the lighthouse are visible from two parts of the garden. The 2 large garages have workshop facilities and you can park up to 6 vehicles on the drive. Stoke Fleming, Blackawton and Stokenham all have really brilliant primary schools and Kingsbridge has an exceptional and outstanding secondary school where members of our family have achieved very successful results. The village has a shop, the amazing Stokeley Farm Shop, tap house and eatery is 10 minutes away and Dartmouth with Marks & Spencer Food, Sainsbury's and Lidl is just 12 minutes away by road. There are great pubs, restaurants, cafés and takeaways within easy reach, including the village pub. There are many different safe walks where you can breathe in the amazing clean air fresh off the sea and where you can take dogs for exercise. Slapton Beach is just a half mile walk along the coastal footpath. In the other direction the same footpath takes you to Blackpool Sands. You can get everything household delivered to the door either by supermarkets or by local artisan fine food and wine providers. The village has a lovely friendly church and chapel and it is an all round safe and delightfully relaxed place to live. All our neighbours are really nice people - everyone keeps themselves to themselves, but we are all friendly and would willingly help each other if asked. All round it's pretty much a perfect place to live with an exceptional quality of life and we find we need to move for work purposes. "

The house could be developed further, or it would be an ideal opportunity for a buyer who would want to build their own 'grand design', taking advantage of the beautiful views on the amazing and very spacious corner plot - all alterations subject to the necessary planning permission. There are very few opportunities within the locality to obtain a plot of this size and quality overlooking the sea.
