Port Cottage Is A Delightful And Distinctive Detached 400-Year-Old Beachfront Cottage. Beautifully And Sympathetically Refurbished With Unrivalled Panoramic Sea Views, Parking And Garage.
Walking along the promenade of the beautiful Torcross Beach, with it’s row of chocolate box cottages and Insta-worthy houses, there is one property that stands out. With it’s pretty shutters and quirky porthole, Port cottage is as delightful as it is distinctive. Many a passer-by has stopped to admire this characterful 400-year-old property, it’s quirky window and white rendered walls synonymous with the seaside, Port Cottage is the ultimate beach house. With the beach just yards away, you can enjoy morning coffee, listening to the tide washing on to the shore on the spacious Mediterranean-style patio, spanning the whole front of the property.
We enter the home via a side porch – perfect for kicking off sandy shoes. A wonderful fireplace with a roaring fire burning in the multi-fuel stove draws our focus as we enter the living room, but our attention is soon grabbed by the view framed by the new oak French casement window – out over the pretty patio to the sea and endless sky beyond. A lovely space to while away your evenings after an energetic day at the beach, curled up in front of the fire. The hallway leads us to a charming dining room, bursting with period features – another fabulous fireplace complete with multi-fuel burner and plenty of space for a large dining table and a sitting area under a window with views out over the pretty coastal courtyard.
The adjoining galley kitchen is an unusually bright space thanks to contemporary pale grey cabinetry and white worktop, as well as the well-positioned skylights and a little picture window giving us a peep of the sea. A pretty stained glass window to the rear adds even more light. Patterned blue tiles, wood effect vinyl flooring and blue painted furniture further enhance this lovely room.
Through the pleasant back door and handy glazed rear porch to the pretty coastal courtyard, where we find another sitting area, ready to take full advantage of the afternoon sunshine until it sets in over the Ley in the evening. There is also a versatile brick built outhouse, currently used as a workshop and storage but with the potential for a super office, playroom or teenage den/bedroom. There is a further brick built storage to the left of this. A picket-fenced walkway past a sweet succulent garden leads us to the very rear of the property where we find the garage and parking bay for three cars.
Both shower rooms in this property are as practical as they are pretty. Heritage-style sanitary ware and charming, considered design make these light and bright spaces nothing short of sanctuaries. The ground floor wet room is extraordinarily joyful. Pretty blue patterned tiles are highlighted by the well-placed skylight give a this space a luxurious vibe. The blend of wood cladding, driftwood flooring and white tiling make the first floor space a fine place to relax.
Wind up the delightfully decorated stairway and we enter the master bedroom. White washed, wood-clad walls and pale carpet showcase the gem-like colours of the intense blue sky reflected in the twinkling blue sea, accented by the pale sand. Surely there is no better vista than the panoramic, uninterrupted view over Start Bay. Sunrises are spectacular all year round from this sensational spot. Clever frosted glazing adds a stylish modern twist to this lovely room. Unusually spacious, this room used to be two, a stud wall dividing the room in half - both having spectacular views - this could easily be reinstated if a third bedroom is required.
Back down a few steps and up some more to the second bedroom, another wonderfully spacious chamber. Exposed stone walls and the characterful ceiling hint at the age of the property. A casement window this time framing views over the peaceful Slapton Ley, the perfect place to watch setting sun – the best of both worlds in this charming coastal escape.
