Situated in a unique position with stunning coastal and sea views, between Churston Golf Course and the South Devon coast, this property is located in one of the most sought after residential areas in South Devon. The picturesque beaches of Elberry Cove and Broadsands are a short walk from the property along a footpath, which adjoins the South West Coast Path. If you fancy a longer walk the lively fishing port of Brixham is approximately 2.5 miles away along the coast path. If golf is your thing then Churston Golf Club, one of Devon's most picturesque courses, is literally on your doorstep. Tor Bay and the Dart Estuary offer all the water sports opportunities you could wish for, from paddle boarding to kite surfing, as well as having several of Devon's best deep water marinas.
The sought after Churston Grammar School and Galmpton C of E School are also close to hand, together with comprehensive and private schools a short drive away. Communications further afield are excellent with the A380 dual carriageway leading to Exeter and the M5 motorway. A main line railway station at Paignton provides easy access to London Paddington together with a regional airport at Exeter.DESCRIPTION
On the open market for the first time in 42 years this property offers a wealth of possibilities. The house is situated on a sizeable and broadly level plot measuring approximately 0.75 of an acre, and benefits from stunning sea views taking in the coastline towards Torquay and Hopes Nose and the channel beyond, as well as a high degree of privacy and seclusion. The property is located off an exclusive and quiet lane that cuts across Churston golf course from Bascombe Road, there are only a handful of other properties on the lane, which rarely come on to the market.

Generous private gardens extend to the front and rear, there are double and single garages plus parking. Although well maintained and presented in good order the property would benefit from modernisation throughout.ACCOMMODATION

The sizeable gardens surround the property so there is always a sunny spot throughout the day, and have been well maintained. Surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and hedging the gardens benefit from a high degree of privacy and seclusion. The main areas are broadly level and laid to lawn with the garden to the North of the property benefiting from the extensive sea views. There is parking off the lane to the side of the property and access to an attached single garage and detached double garage.THE GARDEN PLOT
Planning was passed in 2007 and extended in 2011 (Ref: P/2011/0653) to build a 2 bedroom bungalow on a plot at the bottom of the garden. The current owners are in the process of re-applying for planning. The plot, which is registered on a separate title, measures approximately 0.25 of an acres and also benefits from the tremendous sea views. Due to the plot being at a lower level the proposed dwelling would not obstruct the views. Please contact us for further details.SERVICES
