Full description

Tenure: Freehold

In this stunning location fronting the golf course on Thurlestone’s prestigious private Yarmer Estate is Yellow Sands a charming arts and crafts detached house enjoying the most magnificent panoramic views of the beaches, beautiful unspoilt coastline and sea. The south facing three quarter acre gardens gently sloping down to the golf course bring the views to every corner and conjour up thoughts of children on carefree summer holidays happily playing before heading for the sandy beaches. Admired by generations for the style and location Yellow Sands was built by Sir Philip Edward Pilditch Baronet in 1929 as a quiet retreat and has remained in the family, this being the first time to be offered for sale in those 88 years. Largely for this reason the accommodation remains unaltered keeping the original style and character of the era and enjoyed by the generations. Walking from the property the wonderful sandy beaches of Yarmer Sands and Broad Sands are within 600 yards and the Golf Clubhouse with tennis courts is 800 yards.


Close by is the fine church, four star Thurlestone Hotel having a spa and Village Inn with other facilities including Post Office stores, Village Hall and Primary School which are all within easy reach. Adjoining Thurlestone, a village with a main street of period thatched and slated roof cottages is Bantham in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where the River Avon enters the sea at the very popular famous surfing beach. The centrally situated town of Kingsbridge within five miles offers a wide range of commercial, retail, health and educational facilities. Just eight miles will take you to the very well known harbourside town and sailing centre of Salcombe with deep water harbour, restaurants, shops and beaches.


This is a rare opportunity to purchase a property fronting the golf course in one of the most desirable areas on the south coast affording uninterrupted views with many, like Yellow Sands, remaining in family ownership.
