Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Exceptional Location:
Located on sought-after Moult Road, where properties rarely become available, Murrawingi (which means ‘happy home’), has some of the finest views in South Devon.

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it offers a peaceful location, unspoilt sea and country views, access to splendid sailing grounds, sandy beaches and beautiful walking tracks.

An outstanding contemporary home could be built on this site, with its wide frontage and easy access to a private road. Alternatively, local architects and planning consultants have identified the potential for two separate dwellings on the plot. Any replacement dwelling would be subject to obtaining the relevant planning permissions.

Existing Property:
Built in the 1960’s by well-known Salcombe builder, David Murch, Murrawingi, which has been with the present owners since 1974, offers light and airy accommodation arranged over one floor. The gently curving design takes full advantage of the views and sunny south-facing aspect. There is double glazing throughout.

A utility room, play room/ cloak room, well-appointed family shower room, separate family bathroom, and a twin bedroom are at the rear of the house.

To the south, sea-facing side of the property, all rooms fully showcase the spectacular sea, cliff and country views. A spacious reception/ dining room offers an open wood burning fireplace with local stone surround. Wide sliding doors give access to the sunny balcony with its magnificent outlook.

The kitchen is fully fitted with a range of stylish base and wall-mounted units and integral appliances, and breakfast table with sea views. Two double bedrooms with fitted clothes storage have south-facing aspect.

The exceptional large master bedroom, with fitted wardrobes, and windows to the east and south, has wide sliding double-glazed doors opening onto the south-facing balcony.

Murrawingi is equidistant between the sandy beaches of South and North Sands. From Moult Road a footpath leads to South Sands beach, which offers safe swimming, sand and rock pools, a launching ramp for sailing dinghies, boat, surfboard and kayak hire, sailing tuition, and a beach snack bar. North Sands, a very sandy beach, is also close by, and is especially popular with families with young children. Across the estuary are the stunning beaches of Sunny Cove and Mill Bay.

The Winking Prawn North Sands café offers hospitality and refreshment throughout the year. The South Sands Hotel provides upmarket dining and bar facilities all year.

Overbecks, a National Trust property, with its renowned semi-tropical gardens, is nearby. Local footpaths and tracks through the lovely South Hams area are within easy walking distance. The South West Coastal Path runs past South Sands and gives access to the beauty and wildness of the Bolt Head to Hope Cove area of cliff and seascape. Dartmoor National Park, an expansive area of wild beauty is less than an hour away by car.

Salcombe is one of the most prominent coastal resorts on the south coast of England and much sought after by yachtsmen, dinghy sailors, beach lovers, walkers, artists, and those who love the countryside. The town offers a wide range of retail and leisure amenities including a number of boat builders and associated trades people, art galleries and craft workshops, a yacht club, boutique shops, and a range of atmospheric eateries and public houses.

Salcombe town centre is a pleasant 1 mile walk along Cliff Rd, with beautiful views of the Salcombe Estuary. The South Sands ferry runs every half hour from April to October into Whitestrand in Salcombe town centre, and is a
favourite with tourists and locals alike.

The area is well-served by transport links: Totnes and Plymouth offer rail services to London Paddington, Bristol, and Edinburgh via York. Exeter International Airport has an ever
increasing range of domestic and international flights, including 2 flights a day to London City Airport.

Nearby Bolt Head Airfield offers landing facilities for visiting light aircraft and helicopters.

Fine golf links are open to visiting golfers at Thurlestone and Bigbury, half an hour from Salcombe along the coast.

Leading off Moult Rd, which is a private road, Murrawingi is accessed via its own driveway, with parking for several vehicles. On the south side of the property is a large decked balcony that looks out on the panorama of estuary, sea, cliffs and fields, and provides the perfect space for al fresco dining and entertaining. The view looks over the Bar at the mouth of the Salcombe estuary, and due south towards Prawle Point and the English Channel. The terraced gardens are laid out with flower beds, shrubbery and terraced paths. There is a large woodland area with shady paths, mature scotch pines and holm oaks.
