SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Hallsands is a small village of only a handful of properties in the South Hams, itself an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty flanked by a Site of Special Scientific Interest, thus creating a haven for wildlife and bird lovers. Lining the Eastern coast of the South Hams, Start Bay has a magnificent coastline of high, sweeping cliffs interspersed with long beaches and characterful fishing villages with colour-washed cottages, cafes, shops and old-fashioned country pubs. Of particular interest locally is Slapton Ley and the Line, a narrow strip of land, two miles long separating the freshwater Ley and the English Channel.
It is within easy reach of both Kingsbridge and Dartmouth and there are many beaches close by including Lannacombe, Mattiscombe, Blackpool Sands and East Portlemouth, from where one can catch the ferry to Salcombe.
The property was built under architects supervision some 7 years ago and manages to combine a cottage-style with a stunning contemporary interior. It has a timber inner leaf and therefore benefits from all the inherent advantages associated with this style of building with predominantly rendered/colour washed external elevations, relieved by natural stone features to the garage, the whole beneath a slate roof.
The house is fully double glazed with wooden sealed units and oil-fired centrally heated with an underfloor system to the ground floor and radiators to the first floor.
It is, however, the position of the property which is likely to be of greatest appeal to most buyers: the property is situated in a quiet country lane which leads to the beach (just 200 yards or so away) and some of the most stunning coastal scenery to be found anywhere in the country.PLEASE REFER TO THE ATTACHED FLOOR PLAN AND THE ACCOMMODATION COMPRISES:-
