Classy Elegance

Built in 1901 this imposing, beautifully designed, waterfront house has private terraced gardens and paths giving access to a beach house, picturesque South Sands Beach and watersports facilities. The property has recently been refurbished to an exceptional standard and cleverly designed to be used as one large family house or two self contained apartments. Each has their own extensive outside space and parking. The upper floor has excellent tree top views over the beach, mouth of the harbour and out to sea. The lower and ground floor has sea views through the trees.

South Sands is home to the South Sands Boutique Hotel and Restaurant and the long established Tides Reach Family Hotel and Restaurant.

The house is an 8 minute walk to North Sands with The Winking Prawn restaurant and a further 10 minute scenic walk along Cliff Road to the picturesque town of Salcombe. The South Sands Beach is served by a small passenger ferry during the spring/summer months, which provides access to the centre of Salcombe town.
