Gorgeous best describes the stunning location of this superb hideaway. Situated on its own on a small promontory on the eastern side of the beautiful, tree lined and very tranquil Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary, abundant in wildlife and a haven for boating enthusiasts of all kinds, is Curlew Point. A must for couples who want to escape the world. The property, a wing of the owners magnificent contemporary house, is extremely smart, and very stylish and has glorious views through the trees and grounds across the tidal reaches of the estuary. Surrounded by seven acres of grounds, the property has its own easy path down to the foreshore. The private, secluded shore side beach where you can launch your own kayak or small dinghy is ideal for barbecues, or a spot to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening sunshine and admire the really lovely views across the wide waters of the estuary.
Please Note: Because of the spiral staircase this apartment is only suitable for couples or couples with babes in arms with own Moses basket. This property allows a maximum of 2 adults.
From the shared landscaped courtyard, the front door to the wing opens directly into the sitting room, a superb room with huge windows on three sides making the most of the views. Simple elegance is the keynote here; white limestone tiles cover the floor with splashes of colour added by the two red leather sofas, rug, wide screen TV/DVD and free standing contemporary wood burner. Glazed doors open on one side to a paved private terrace overlooking the extensive lawns and the estuary. Spiral open tread stairs wind up to a mezzanine living area, with a large sofa (can convert to a double bed), dining table and four chairs. Unusual, small fitted kitchen area with a curved granite worktop, 2 ring halogen hob, built-in combination oven/microwave, larder fridge, dishwasher and magnificent estuary views. The downstairs bedroom has glazed doors opening to the grounds and private terrace, an oak floor, fine double 5ft bed, fitted cupboards and an en-suite shower room with corner shower cubicle, basin and WC.
A private lane leads to the gated driveway. 7 acres of enclosed gardens surround the house and are mainly laid to lawn with fine trees and meadows. Two paved private terraces extend from the sitting room and bedroom. Garden table and chairs. A grassy path winds down to the tidal foreshore with a small gravel beach (covered at high tide). There is appropriately placed seating at various view points where you can sit and dream! At low tide there is a cutting through the shale rocks to enable launching of boats.
