Property Description: BAY VIEW HOUSE
Bay View House occupies two floors of a substantial Edwardian building located between Cliff Road and Bennett Road with unrivalled panoramic views of the Estuary, from the mouth of the Estuary itself through Mill Bay and East Portlemouth and towards South Pool. With its outstanding south-facing, elevated position, this duplex apartment with two glorious balconies, is in one of the best locations in Salcombe, affording privacy, extensive accommodation and generous parking. Formerly a hotel, the building now comprises four apartments (including Bay View House), each with separate entrances. The front door provides access onto the parking area and Bennett Road, whilst rear pedestrian access is found off Cliff Road.
The location of this duplex apartment is sensational: not only does it provide breathtaking 180 degree views of the Estuary, but it is also very conveniently situated within Salcombe, being a short, easy walk away from the amenities and facilities of the town. Salcombe is an iconic holiday location, steeped in a long history of leisure sailing, seafaring and fishing. Enjoying its own micro-climate, the town has narrow, winding streets lined with exclusive boutiques and independent galleries, cafes and restaurants. The broad, sheltered Estuary reaches deep into the surrounding countryside offering safe anchorage for visiting and local yachts, complimented by many sandy beaches and picturesque fisherman cottages and quays. Within reach are also a plethora of outdoor activities: kite surfing and surfing at Bantham, walks along the South West Coast Path and golf at Thurlestone and Bigbury. There is also a private airfield at Bolberry Down.
The accommodation is as follows: please note that all dimensions are approximate. Metric measurements are conversions from imperial figures which have been rounded to the nearest three inches.
