Roses / Still Meadow, Ilbert Road, Thurlestone

Still Meadow is situated in one of the most impressive locations in the South Hams with magnificent uninterrupted sea views. The property provides versatile accommodation with the addition of Roses – a self contained one bedroom annexe.

Being marketed for the first time since 1959, this is a truly unique opportunity to purchase one of the coveted front row properties on the prestigious Yarmer Estate. Located less than 100 yards from the golden sands of Yarmer Cove and direct access to the renowned 18 hole Thurlestone golf course, opportunities like this are rare indeed.

On entering the property, the large hallway provides generous proportions and storage space, with the added advantage of a lift from the ground to the first floor. Located to the right, is a large sitting room with an original Devon fireplace and uninterrupted sea views. The entrance hall takes you on the left to the boot room, WC, but in the centre to the Study and Dining room which both enjoy fantastic sea views and are perfect spaces for entertaining friends and family. The sun room is located directly off the study and provides the perfect elevated position to take in all the action on the Golf course or a place to simply sit back and enjoy the mesmerizing sunsets. The garden can also be accessed from here, with double glazed French doors and gentle steps leading to the large south westerly facing lawn and to terraces on either side. Adjacent to the Study, the Dining room leads you to the spacious Kitchen, Utility Room, Hall and side access door.

The Master Suite and Landing both access an inner lobby which leads to a bathroom and stair to the second floor, which the current owners have converted to create additional accommodation.

The property has been designed perfectly so that each bedroom can enjoy the panoramic views of the sea and coastline towards the Atlantic and beyond.

Roses – The Annexe

The Master Bedroom occupies the entire first floor and enjoys further sea views and southerly outlook.

Roses provides extremely versatile accommodation and is a great addition to this wonderful property. There is direct access from the main dwelling and thus offers an extension to the living Quarters, self-contained guest accommodation or the perfect investment opportunity to create revenue.
