A bricked archway opens into a spacious living area, which has previously been three reception rooms, with door leading into a sun room with incredible views across to Bolt Tail, the South West coastline and open sea beyond and sliding doors out onto a patio area. A door leads to the kitchen/dining room with fabulous far reaching views out to the open sea.

The fully fitted kitchen comprises of a breakfast bar area with storage below and an electric hob, integrated freezer, integrated electricity oven and grill, integrated microwave and an integrated full length fridge. A door leads to a rear porch with access to a side patio. Bedroom one has fitted wardrobes, dressing table and side table and offers incredible panoramic views towards the iconic Burgh Island, the breath taking South West Coastline and open sea. There is an en-suite shower room with a large walk-in shower.

The property is entered via a private road into a gated driveway with parking for three cars and a double garage. The west facing garden is gently sloping and is mainly laid to lawn with planted shrubs in borders. There is a sunny patio area, creating the perfect location to watch the sunset whilst enjoying a gin and tonic.

The picturesque and unspoiled village of Hope Cove lies in the sheltered curve of Bigbury Bay on Devon’s south coast. A choice destination for families, the two beaches offering soft sand and rock pools for sandcastle building and fishing for small crabs. The town remains a fishing village where crabs and lobsters are still landed, however it was once used by smugglers. Many ships have perished around the coast and the wrecks that lie beneath the waves make it a popular spot for divers. Above the beach, there are a number of Inns and restaurants, together with the coastal footpath which can be joined from here leading towards Bigbury-on-sea in one direction and the coastal resort of Salcombe in the other.

The friendly market town of Kingsbridge, approximately 5 miles away, provides an excellent range of amenities including; restaurants/pubs, two supermarkets, a cinema, a leisure centre with indoor swimming, numerous sports and fitness facilities, a medical centre, a community hospital, library and churches. The town boasts an excellent primary school and a community college which was judged “outstanding” by Ofsted. Close by there are boat moorings, quays and slipways at the head of the estuary. The area has an abundance of sandy beaches providing wonderful coastal and countryside walks, while the popular sailing towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe are within easy reach.
