In a spectacular position, commanding uninterrupted far reaching 180 degree views across open sea to Dodman Point, an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire a detached coastal residence set in approaching ½ an acre with development potential with generous plot size to create a dream home ‘grand design’, subject to necessary consents.

The Property
Enjoying awe-inspiring views from almost every window, a two storey three bedroomed detached coastal property with white rendered elevations under steeply pitched roof with a stunning first floor sunroom converted from the original balcony. Probably built in the 1930s, with large picture windows to three elevations the views are captivating. Ceiling heights are generally good with many rooms having picture rails. Windows and doors are uPVC double glazed and modern electric radiators provide the heating. Massive potential for remodelling or full development with the creation of one or more dwellings considering the large plot which measures about 0.414 acres subject to the necessary consents.

The accommodation comprises on the ground floor:- reception hall; triple aspect sitting room; dining room, kitchen & two bedrooms, all enjoying incredible sea views and family bathroom. On the first floor is the master bedroom leading through to a sun room with awe-inspiring views to Dodman Point in the distance.

A well maintained stone wall forms the northern boundary where there are two separately gated entrances, with the second gate leading to a contained lawn area with the appearance of a ‘separate’ plot.

The property is accessed from ‘Townsend’ road through a five bar gate to a ‘crazy paved’ vehicle parking space leading to the garage now needing renovation or replacement. ‘Crazy paved’ paths give pedestrian access down to the house and are flanked by areas of level or gently sloping lawn complimented by Escalonia and Euonymus manicured hedges, flowering shrubs and mature trees. Whilst simple, the gardens appear to be divided into a number of ‘rooms’ and are a delight to explore with an orchard area containing apple and pear trees. In all about 0.414 acres (0.17ha).

Viewings: Strictly by appointment with the sole selling agents Lodge & Thomas. Telephone Services: Mains water, drainage and electricity. Telephone connected subject to BT regulations.

Tenure: Freehold with vacant possession on completion.
