Paradise Found! Wake To The Sound Of Gentle Waves, Savour Morning Coffee On The Patio, And Make Every Day A Beach Day In This Unique Seaside Cottage. Chain-Free, Ample Parking Nearby - Resident Permits Available

There is a reason that relaxation apps use the sound of waves gently lapping against a shale shore, as there is no other sound that instantly shifts our mood. This is the sound that we hear as we arrive at Seabreeze Cottage. However, as we approach the entrance to this glorious 400-year-old thatched cottage, such is the idyllic position on the heavenly slice of land between Slapton Ley and Torcross sands, our senses are overwhelmed by the vastness of the blue sky, sea views as far as the eye can see and smell of salty fresh air. There can truly be no greater escape from everyday life.

We tear ourselves away from the spectacular views and enter the property through the sweetest driftwood gate and into the sun-drenched patio. A handy porch for all weather and drop off point for buckets and spades. Into the hallway and we start to get a sense that this house is something special.

We are drawn into the living room by the extraordinary light from the large triple aspect windows framing glorious views over Start Bay. This stunning room, unusually spacious for it’s era is extraordinarily characterful, from the window seats maximising the views,

Real wood flooring accentuates the beautiful painted ribbed ceiling cleverly enhancing the sense of space whilst retaining the character of the room. A grand stone fireplace prepared for a Multi-fuel burner grabs our attention as we walk across the room and through to the rear of the property.

An ever-so characterful dining room with not one but two homely fireplaces - one featuring an old bread oven - greets us, flooded with light from the large bay windows and glazed rear door, this ample space has plenty of room for all of the family. The adjoining kitchen is vast for a property of this age and is fitted with modern grey units and white and oak worktops. A useful breakfast bar separates the two spaces.

Back through to the hallway now and wind up the first staircase. Vying for Master Bedroom status are bedrooms 1 & 2. Both rooms are capacious sanctuaries with ample space for a super-kingsize bed and are bursting to the seams with characterful features. Though Bedroom 2 benefits from the large en-suite complete with bath, Bedroom 1 pips it to the post with it's quirky pebble-floor shower room and fabulous partially exposed stone fireplace.

Both bedrooms share the same view from their wonderful window seats, perfectly framing views over sand, shoreline and sky, this heavenly vista can be relied on to provide the most sensational sunrises throughout the year. There can surely be no better way to start your day than watching the daybreak over the horizon of Start Bay?

Equally as pretty, bedrooms 3 and 4 are accessed via a second staircase - making this property ideal for multi-generational living. Bedroom 3 is a great size with built in storage and a cosy bay window with views out of the side towards the beach. It also has a good sized en-suite shower room. The fourth bedroom - another grand size and in keeping with the others bursting with charming features. There is also a connecting door between the two that may be useful. Drift downstairs and we find a further door leading us to a surprise utility room, with exterior access connecting to the porch, this also doubles as a great mudroom. Ideal for kicking off sandy shoes and throwing your towels after wild swimming from the beach on your doorstep. You will be the envy of green-eyed passers-by as you enjoy breakfast on the pretty patio following your dip, or kicking back with an evening apéritif after a hard day of Paddle-boarding!

With two staircases providing access to the two sets of bedrooms, Seabreeze Cottage has great potential for multi-generational living. The third and fourth bedrooms lend themselves particularly well to a living room and bedroom with own bathroom. With the utility room at the foot of these stairs, a kitchen would be an easy conversion. The layout of this house even allows for separate entrances.
