Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Keep is enviably situated close to the estuary beach, just a short riverside walk away from the centre of the village. Shaldon has a strong sense of community and nestles beautifully between the sandy estuary beach and the pretty hills above.

The property itself occupies a superb position, with the plot extending to around one third of an acre. The setting affords commanding views across the estuary, the coast line and rolling countryside, with plenty of outdoor space and sun terrace/patio areas to benefit from the early morning through to late evening sun. Currently the property is a 1960's-built detached dormer bungalow with family-sized accommodation comprising of a large sitting room with a walk-in bay, taking full advantage of the outstanding estuary views. There is a dining room, a kitchen, three ground floor bedrooms and the master bedroom suite is set on the first floor. Outside the gardens take full advantage of the wonderful elevated position with landscaped grounds comprising of a sweeping lawn, terraces and a lower terrace with a heated 16 X 32 foot swimming pool with air source heat pump. The property offers tremendous potential with the plot being expansive enough to replace or extend the existing dwelling (subject to the necessary consents.) Current planning permission is in place to provide an additional driveway with level side by side off road parking. The existing garage site would be excavated and the two storey garage building being set at a lower level, thus further opening up the view from the house. Additionally, planning has been granted for a Pool House/Studio, set adjacent to the existing swimming pool. Planning details are available to be seen in our Teignmouth office and as follows: Shaldon has independent shops and cafes, a good selection of public houses and restaurants and a charming foot passenger ferry across to the seaside town of Teignmouth. Additional amenities include an Ofsted 'Outstanding' rated primary school, several award winning gastronomic venues, and the village green surrounded by pretty cottages. There is a well-supported annual regatta and water carnival, as well as rowing and sailing clubs. There is good walking on the south west coast path and the wonderful Ness Beach is accessed via a tunnel. Teignmouth, facing Shaldon over the Teign Estuary, has a lovely promenade with a classic Georgian crescent, a Waitrose, and newly built performance space including cinema, theatre and live music venue, and a range of education options. In addition there is a mainline rail link to Bristol and London Paddington.
