With its many picturesque thatched cottages and colourful gardens which result from its own "micro-climate", Thurlestone is the epitome of a South Devon village. The village is renowned for its 4-star hotel and it also has an Inn, post office/general stores, church and highly-regarded primary school. There is a large, sandy beach whilst other, more secluded coves are reached by walking one of the many footpaths across its prestigious 18 hole golf course.DESCRIPTION
We understand that this property was built to an individual architect design in the early 1990s, and has been much improved and extended by the current owners. Located in an elevated position on the sought-after Mead development, the property also enjoys wonderful views to the golf course and the sea.
