Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION/LOCATION Glenside is a wonderful detached period property with elegant Georgian styling and much character and charm set in a beautiful near-waterside position with good views towards the estuary and the rolling hills above. The current owners have undertaken extensive refurbishment works in recent years and Glenside is presented in excellent condition throughout.

The house has elegant, well presented and tremendously versatile accommodation that extends to over 4000 square feet. Whilst being a fantastic family home Glenside also has the additional benefit of income potential. There is enough room for multi- generational families to live together with the rear of the property easily informally divided into a separate living space.
Glenside also offers potential owners an opportunity for very good income potential. The house has traded in the past as a very successful B&B and is currently a holiday let with Classic cottages - with 3 bedroom owners accommodation at the rear of the property. There are potentially opportunities for letting the rear of the property as a long term let whilst living in the front portion of the house. Glenside is truly a magnificent family home with income potential! Parking is at a premium in Shaldon so Glenside's car park ( which parks 5 cars) is a tremendous benefit.

The welcoming reception hall opens to the principal reception rooms with bay windows overlooking the lawns and beyond, being lovely spaces for relaxing and entertaining. The stylish kitchen has attractive Corian style work surfaces and opens to a useful utility/boot room with pantry and workshop. The house is loosely arranged in two parts with the principal house having five/six ensuite bedrooms at first floor level, along with a pleasant first floor sitting room. At first floor level in the West Wing there are two double bedrooms, office and a modern shower room, the larger of these two bedrooms has direct access to the rear courtyard and gardens.

The outside spaces complement the interior perfectly with lovely lawns, borders and estuary views in the front garden, as well as a gravelled parking area providing space for numerous cars. Outside to the rear there is a beautiful Mediterranean style paved courtyard with raised gardens beside and a further garden at an upper level giving good options for alfresco dining and to contemplate the idyllic surroundings.

Glenside is perfectly set in a near waterside position in a sought after residential area known as Ringmore, which lies to the west of the picturesque estuary side village of Shaldon. The bustling village centre and sandy beaches are less than half a mile's level waterside walk away. Shaldon has a strong sense of community and nestles beautifully between the sandy estuary beach and the pretty hills above. There are many 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, The Ness House Hotel and a bowling green. There is a well supported annual regatta and water carnival, as well as a rowing and sailing club. There is good walking on the south west coast path and Dartmoor. The wonderful Ness Beach is accessed via a "Smugglers" tunnel through the cliffs. The village even has a small zoo! The seaside town of Teignmouth is just over a mile away and has a lovely promenade with a classic Georgian crescent, a Waitrose and a range of education options including Trinity School, offering both private primary and secondary education. The renowned girls and boys grammar schools in Torquay are around 7 miles away. The cathedral city of Exeter with its international airport is around 16 miles away with fast access via the A380. In addition there is a mainline rail link to London Paddington from Teignmouth.

Glenside is also steeped in a rich sense of past grandeur and history and is shown on the 1700 maps of the Clifford Estate. The house is understood to have operated as a Dame school at the turn of the last century, before trading as a very successful small hotel for over 70 years. Glenside also offers extremely versatile accommodation and would make an ideal home with annexe or could easily revert to a home with income.
