1 Island Street

Guide Price £925,000

1 Island Street

1 Island Street was originally the home of the life boat engineer as the location enabled him to access the slipway quickly. Purchased from the RNLI over twenty years ago, the beautifully presented end of terrace house has since been fully refurbished by Pebbles of Salcombe in 2018 and is the ideal lock up and leave second home or holiday let investment.

A welcoming entrance hallway with stripped floorboards flows through to the cosy sitting room with woodburning stove and white wooden painted shutters. The kitchen/dining room has been designed to create a wonderful sociable space with a fully fitted kitchen area and a dining area with built-in seating bench with storage below. There is a gas fired two oven Aga recessed into the fireplace with gorgeous tiled splashbacks, along side built-in storage and shelving either side and a stable door leading to the rear courtyard.

Stairs lead to the first floor to a light landing area. Here you can find the first double bedroom with picture rail, a further double bedroom with picture rail and glimpses of the estuary across to Snapes Point and a single bedroom, currently set up as a bunk room, with views through Thorning Street to the estuary beyond. The fully tiled family bathroom offers a bath and shower over. On the second floor are two further bedrooms, both set up as twin rooms, with part wooden panelled walls. Both rooms have built-in storage in the eaves and glimpses of the estuary across to Snapes Point.

The property benefits from an enclosed walled garden with gateway access to the rear. There are three external outbuildings, each of which individually house a utility room, a WC and a shower; perfect for washing off those sandy toes after a day at the beach. Permit parking is available nearby.

The highly sought after Salcombe lies at the heart of the South Hams region, an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. Renowned for its crystal clear turquoise waters along the estuary, a wonderful selection of local and independent shops, restaurants and public houses, boat parks, with slipways and mooring pontoons at Batson and Shadycombe Creeks. Local run events include the Salcombe Regatta, food and music festivals and the annual Crab festival. With its own microclimate, you could be anywhere in the world!
