The place:
Salcombe: one of the most beautifully sited small towns in Britain, at the mouth of the Kingsbridge estuary, a yacht haven with creeks, sandy bays. Waterside pubs, nice shops. Boats to hire, fishing, superb Nat. Trust cliff walks/gardens; museum, tennis, outdoor swimming pool (in summer); pedestrian ferry to East Portlemouth (lovely beaches, The Venus Café and Takeaway). Thurlestone and Bigbury (golf), 6 and 8 miles.

The property:


... Underbecks is an exceptionally exciting detached house, brilliantly positioned on the hillside just above and overlooking South Sands’ sandy beach and with sensational views upstream to Salcombe, a mile away, from its good-sized enclosed terrace (loungers, table/chairs, sheltered barbecue area).

The South Sands Hotel (excellent restaurant and bar with terrace overlooking the beach) is within easy walking distance. The Tides Reach Hotel leisure complex (200 yards away) has a full-sized snooker table, table tennis, a good restaurant and outdoor and indoor pool and jacuzzi for adults/teenagers (hourly rates). Boats can be hired locally. Less than ½ mile to Overbecks (Nat. Trust) with its fascinating and eccentric Victorian collection and beautiful gardens.

Inside, Underbecks is exceptionally spacious, full of light streaming in from the many floor-to-ceiling windows and roof lights (you almost feel as though you are living in the view rather than looking at it), decorated and furnished cleverly (mainly in cream, beige, taupe) and comfortably, very stylish and modern - no chintz here.

Steps (54) from the road lead down to the front door and into the large hall - where light streams down from the roof windows on to two specially designed sails hanging on the side wall - and on to the large open-plan living room which draws you to the huge bay windows for the view. Off it, a double bedroom (5’ bed) with en suite bathroom (suite plus separate power-shower); and another double (5' bed) with double aspect view and en suite bathroom (suite plus separate power-shower). Both these bedrooms have excellent views. At the back - no view - are a twin bedroom and separate bathroom (suite plus bath-shower), and a fine big twin bedroom (zip-linkable to 6' double) with en suite bathroom (suite plus separate power-shower) and doors to a very spacious, private decked balcony with loungers and sea glimpses.

Stairs down from the hall to a large full-width-of-house open-plan room (49’ long) with tiled floor. This comprises a second living room with floor-to-ceiling bay window leading to the terrace, a state of the art home cinema including plasma screen, Sky High Definition, digital music library and surround sound, Wii, and dining room with atmospheric overhead mood lighting, which in turn leads to the well fitted beech kitchen with island divider (freezer, microwave, dishwasher, double oven/halogen hob) – a fine room full of sunshine and light. Sliding doors in second living room and dining room open to the terrace. Washing machine and tumble drier in separate utility cupboard.

At the back of the house on this floor is a bedroom decorated for children, with two sets of full-sized bunk beds and en suite shower-room (suite).
 
2 TVs/Sky/DVD/Blu-ray/video. PC provided. Professional catering available. A wonderful place. Damages Deposit £400.
