Birchwood Frogmore Kingsbridge

A fine contemporary waterfront home in a magnificent South facing village location opening to gardens stretching down to the unspoilt waters of Frogmore Creek off the Kingsbridge/ Salcombe Estuary. Stunning views over the water to the countryside beyond are enjoyed from the property especially the balcony and terraces off the living spaces. It is clear that the views and southerly facing location was very important in the design of the accommodation. That individuality in design continues into all aspects of the property which has been built to exciting standards incorporating extremely high levels of installation resulting in a very warm home with minimal running costs.

From the far end of the garden, steps lead down to a level grassed sitting/ dinghy landing stage having a short slipway to the foreshore. A wonderful location to spend a summers evening by the waters. From your own slipway the harbour pontoons in Salcombe and beaches at East Portlemouth are easily reached by boat as is the harbour pontoon at Kingsbridge. Moorings in the creek may be available on application to the Harbour office.

Within the popular and well-placed village of Frogmore is the Globe Inn and close by a farm shop whilst for a wide variety of retail, commercial, health, sports and educational amenities the town of Kingsbridge is within four miles. The Sea at Torcross and the famous Slapton Lee Freshwater Reserve is three miles to the east and to the south lies the rugged coastline with miles of spectacular clifftop walks and sandy beaches stretching from Start Point to East Portlemouth.

Birchwood is a very soundly built detached house of traditional cavity wall construction having a high level of insulation with a rendered and featured boarded exterior under a zinc roof. Benefiting greatly from very good natural light the double glazed and underfloor electrically heated accommodation featuring bespoke oak doors to complement the oak engineered flooring comprises;
