Beesands was once a thriving fishing village supporting a local community who existed for many years by fishing from the beach in their open boats. Today, it is mainly leisure fishing from the beach that can be seen from Beesands although the old fishermen's boats still straggle along the main village street which runs along parallel to the beach. Beesands also boasts a recently-refurbished, award-winning shellfish shop/restaurant where you can buy locally caught crab, lobster, scallops and fresh wet fish all from Start Bay and the popular Cricket Inn.

This 1950s terraced cottage has been greatly enhanced and improved by the current vendor in his 10 years of ownership, mainly between 2015/16 with some later improvements in 2020. The accommodation has a bright and airy feel with a superb open plan reception room, 3 bedrooms and a well-appointed bathroom. The property had planning permission granted in 2015 for an extension to the front and rear of the property and, whilst it has lapsed, the purchaser could re-apply to extend the reception room in an easterly direction benefitting more from the stunning sea views.

The property benefits from one off-road parking space with a pedestrian footpath leading along the rear of the cottages to the rear of No. 4. There is further parking available in the parking bays along the seafront with a path leading past a council owned area of level lawn, through a gate into the front pebbled garden. From here the front door opens into the large open-plan kitchen/breakfast room/sitting room with an engineered oak floor with stairs and a glass balustrade leading to the first floor.

The kitchen has been replaced with a range of base level units with an integrated refrigerator, 4-ring electric hob and an integrated electric oven with extractor over. There is a large window over the sink overlooking the rear courtyard and paved areas and a door to the mains gas-fired boiler and hot water tank. The sitting room area retains the chimney opening, although it is not used, and a large picture window into the east-facing conservatory. This is where the vendor had planned to extend the property with the previously lapsed plans. From the kitchen end of the rooms, a glazed door leads to a utility area with plumbing for a washing machine and door to a ground floor WC.

The flight of stairs leads to a recently fitted bathroom with a white 3-piece suite with a Mira Jump electric shower over, underfloor heating and obscured glazed window to the rear. Bedroom 1, double, with a large window to the rear and built-in double wardrobe. Bedroom 2, double, with large window to the front with a stunning sea view. Bedroom 3, with window facing the sea, currently used as a dressing area and study.

To the rear of the property is a storeroom currently used for storage and a private area of patio for kayak/bike storage etc. The area of terraced patio rises beyond the pedestrian path to a further flat seating area with access to a lane for bin storage. To the front is the fenced area of pebbled garden.

The property is sold subject to the 'Devon Rule', which states that the property must be disposed to a person who (or to persons, one of whom) has throughout the period of three years immediately preceding the disposal had his place of work or his only or principal home (or has had his place of work in part of or parts of that period and his only or principal home in the remainder of that period) within the county of Devon.
