Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A superb beachside development opportunity with detailed planning consent for a sensational contemporary house of approximately 480 square metres gross internal floor area with spectacularly beautiful views over Start Bay and to Start Point light house.

Dramatic 3.5 acre site including secluded beach and cliff, 175 yards of foreshore frontage with potential slipway.

Torcross is a picturesque village over-looking Start Bay, midway between the historic town of Dartmouth and the bustling market town of Kingsbridge. It is situated in a beautiful section of the South Devon coastline and at one end of a three mile stretch of beach known as Slapton Sands. Enclosed and protected by the beach is a large freshwater lake and bird sanctuary. The village has its own village store/Post Office together with a popular inn and restaurant.

Torcross is a short distance from the River Dart and Salcombe estuaries both of which offer first class sailing and boating facilities plus miles of sheltered water. Between the two estuaries there is some spectacular cliff scenery interspersed with a variety of remote and unspoilt sandy beaches.

The Cove House site is hidden from the village itself by an out crop of rock. It is approached over a shared private driveway and lies beneath the cliff which provides shelter from the prevailing winds. Extending to about 3.5 acres, it embraces a secluded beach down to the mean high waterline and a slipway towards the southern end which could be reinstated to get access for boats.

Detailed planning consent (reference 53/2267/15/F) was granted on the 23rd of December 2015 to build a large contemporary house, illustrated within this brochure, this will replace the original Cove House which has recently been demolished.

The 6 bedroom/6 bathroom accommodation will have a superb interlocking living area opening onto broad terraces and balconies and there is also provision for a cinema and gymnasium.
