Salcombe is renowned as a sailing and boating centre, located beside one of the loveliest estuaries in the South West with miles of sheltered water and fine sandy beaches on either side towards its mouth. The popular town has an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants.
Fernbank was built in the late 1800's and occupies a very convenient position within easy and comfortable walking distance of the shops, restaurants, harbour and mooring pontoons.
The house enjoys far-reaching, uninterrupted views of South Pool Creek, East Portlemouth's village and sandy beaches and the National Trust land at Snapes Point, there are very few rooftops to interrupt the glorious aspect.
Fernbank is a substantial house with superbly proportioned rooms and bright, airy accommodation arranged over two floors; the principal rooms are at the front to appreciate the views.
The entrance hall on the ground floor has an attractive staircase and there are two generous reception rooms, a breakfast room and kitchen on this level. Off the kitchen is a lobby with WC, garden store and access to outside. There are 4 bedrooms on the first floor, a light-filled landing and bathroom.
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and the private rear garden catches the sun all day. A driveway provides parking for two cars in tandem.
Opportunities to acquire a property to renovate in one of the towns most desirable locations are few and far between and viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate everything Fernbank offers.
