Arguably one of the most sought after waterfront locations in the UK with an uncommonly temperate climate and golden beaches, Salcombe is the perfect setting for this perfectly positioned home with unimpeded views of the dramatic coastline and out to sea.
The Salcombe Estuary has numerous sandy beaches, coves and sheltered anchorages, all of which make it an excellent base for dinghy sailing, watersports, boating and long walks along the beautiful coastline.
Salcombe is also a famous yachting centre and provides a perfect cruising base from which to explore France, The Channel Islands and the beautiful harbours and creeks of the West Country.
The vibrant town of Salcombe, once a thriving fishing village, retains much of its original charm and character. The town's many restaurants, local pubs and shops are all within walking distance of the property.
Castle Keep is a spectacular home that has been designed and built around one of the most glorious views in the South Hams. The house occupies a south east facing position and has uninterrupted views over the Salcombe Estuary, across the harbour mouth and out to sea.
The overriding focus throughout the house is of generosity and space. The living accommodation on the ground floor is extensive with the drawing room and kitchen breakfast dining room opening into the conservatory which leads onto a large decked balcony that enjoys splendid beach, estuary and sea views.
The spacious main bedroom suite on the top floor enjoys 180 degree views and in addition there are 4 further double bedrooms and 3 bath / shower rooms. There is the ability, if desired, to create a self-contained apartment on the ground floor.
The plot extends to around 3/4 of an acre with the professionally landscaped gardens perfectly complimenting the house and the breathtakingly beautiful setting. The grounds are well established, immaculately kept and full of colour. Within the Mediterranean gardens are a vast array of unusual plants more associated with warmer climes and paved terraces have been positioned to take full advantage of the sun at different times of the day.
The impressive driveway winds through beautifully planted borders to the front of the house where there is a large double garage with remote-controlled up and over door plus additional parking for a number of vehicles and space to turn.
Mains drainage, gas, water and electricity. Underfloor heating to part of the ground floor.
