Full description

A spacious and well-presented first floor apartment with fine southerly views over part of the golf course to the sea. Superb coastal location, upgraded accommodation of generous proportions, ideal holiday lock up and leave. Two private balconies. Attractive communal gardens, ample parking. EPC Band: D.

Situation - Thurlestone is the epitome of a South Devon village with its many picturesque stone and thatched cottages and colourful gardens resulting from its own "micro-climate". It is renowned for its 4-star hotel and it also has an Inn, post office/general stores, church and highly-regarded primary school. There is a large, sandy beach whilst other, more secluded coves are reached by walking one of the many footpaths across its prestigious 18 hole golf course. At nearby Bantham is the best surfing beach in South Devon. Salcombe, Devon's southernmost town, is some 6 miles distant. With its beautiful harbour and unspoilt estuary, the town is a Mecca for yachting and water sports. Salcombe also offers an excellent range of fine shops, restaurants and inns as well as lovely, sandy beaches and spectacular cliff top walking.

Description - Built in the early 1980s, 8 Avon House is in one of 4 blocks in Merchants Garden, a quiet and desirable development set in established, well-stocked and fully landscaped gardens, in the very heart of the village.
The apartment, which is uPVC double glazed throughout, affords particularly light and airy accommodation with two balconies strategically positioned to enjoy the most of the sun, and has been recently undergone a program of improvements including the kitchen, and newly fitted bathrooms with white suites. There is ample storage throughout, and we would also note that the electric board and external electric meter etc have been upgraded within the last 5 years.

It is the position, though, and the view which is likely to appeal most to the majority of buyers: the beach and coastal foot path is within just a couple minutes walking distance, as is the village pub and shop and from the front, it enjoys a delightful aspect over the nearby nature reserve and opening green of the nearby golf course, with the sea being just beyond.
It is available with IMMEDIATE VACANT POSSESSION and the updated accommodation briefly comprises:-
