Flat 24 The Moorings, Embankment Road

Coming to the market for the first time in over 28 years, Number 24 The Moorings is a penthouse maisonette located within the premium waterside development of high quality apartments affording a good deal of privacy by the secure gated entrance. Set within well maintained landscaped gardens of just over an acre overlooking the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary, providing uninterrupted views over the tidal waters and embankment to surrounding countryside. The situation and facilities offered by The Moorings are outstanding for anyone seeking secure and comfortable living close to the water’s edge.

The apartment is entered via an entrance hall which leads through to a spacious inner hallway with storage under the stairs for coats and shoes. A lovely inviting living/dining room with feature arched window, part vaulted ceiling and a triple aspect offering beautiful views across the estuary to the countryside beyond. Feature fireplace with electric fire and a door leading out onto the balcony. Kitchen/breakfast room with a fully fitted kitchen including oven with plate warmer beneath, ceramic hob and extractor fan, integrated dishwasher, space and plumbing for washer/dryer, space for tall fridge freezer and ample under counter and wall cupboards. The main bedroom has beautiful estuary and countryside views, built-in wardrobes, door to balcony and an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower cubicle and built-in storage, a second bedroom with built-in wardrobe and a cupboard housing the hot water tank and a family bathroom with bath and shower over. The current owners had converted the upstairs area creating two further bedrooms, currently being used as further reception rooms, each with built-in storage in the eaves and a Jack & Jill shower room between.

The property benefits from an undercover allocated parking space and a dinghy space.

There is also the additional provision of visitors’ parking and on-site electric car charging facilities along with the opportunity of a mooring for a boat of up to 14’ 6” long, subject to Harbour Master’s consent.

The communal gardens surrounding the apartments of The Moorings are a real delight being fully landscaped and communally maintained. Laid mostly to lawn they meet the water’s edge lending a backdrop of bobbing boats and rolling countryside. A path leads to the seating area from which to enjoy the expansive estuary views and visiting wildlife of this tidal waterway.

The sought after market town of Kingsbridge is located at the head of the estuary in the beautiful South Hams, an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, and provides a fantastic range of local and independent shops, restaurants, pubs, two supermarkets, a cinema, a leisure centre with swimming pool, medical centre, community hospital, schooling and churches all whilst retaining a small town feel with a strong community. Kingsbridge Academy is one of the highest rated in the UK. There are regular sporting activities as well as markets and social events. With boat moorings along the estuary and quay, regular public transport and road links to nearby Dartmouth, Salcombe and surrounding villages. The area has an abundance of beaches, coves and country and coastal walks.
