The village of East Portlemouth is beside one of the loveliest estuaries in the South West, with miles of sheltered water and fine sandy beaches. There is a passenger ferry and water taxi service to Salcombe on the opposite side of the estuary where you will find a bustling town with shops, pubs and restaurants.
Port Waterhouse which offers hassle-free boating - moorings, parking and storage is a short walk from the property. There is also a bar that's open during the main summer season and other holiday times and various pop up food events. The neighbouring villages of East Prawle and South Pool both have pubs.
Church Park Cottage stands on an elevated plot extending to approximately an acre. The gardens are a delight with paths winding round gently sloping lawns with mature trees and planted flower borders. There are several level areas with well positioned seating to enjoy the spectacular views of the Salcombe estuary and surrounding countryside.
The front door opens to a spacious kitchen dining room with slate floor, Aga and inglenook fireplace. An attractive lobby with vaulted ceiling and lots of glazing incorporates a staircase that rises to the first floor and also links the main house with a one bedroom self-contained annex. The first floor has a living room with open fire and French doors to the garden along with 3 bedrooms and 2 bath / shower rooms.
Originally two cottages, the property offers spacious flexible accommodation with scope to update, modernise and extend, subject to any necessary consents. Character features such as exposed ceiling timbers, deep window seats remain.
