Boathouse Cottage is a cosy and quirky seaside property built into the cliff, just yards from the beach at one end of Slapton Sands (a 3-mile stretch of golden coastline). Situated in Torcross, the property is a traditional Devon village on the Start Bay coastline with an intriguing history and unspoilt shingle beach.
The village has a popular pub, post office/store and cafes (all within easy walking distance). The market town of Kingsbridge is within a 15-minute drive whilst the beautiful sandy beaches of Salcombe and East Portlemouth are approximately seven miles away.
Offering superb, dual aspect views across the beach and out to sea from the first floor living accommodation, the property has been skillfully extended into the rockface and is presented to a very good standard throughout.
On the ground floor is a double bedroom with sea views, and a family shower room, with large shower cubicle, whilst on the first floor is a light and sunny open-plan kitchen/sitting/dining room with large picture window and stunning views. Also on the first floor is a smaller twin bedroom with two small single beds (the beds can be linked on request to create a King-size double), and en suite cloakroom with W.C.
