Reached along a private driveway, this superb, ultra modern, exceptionally stylish and spacious property, fronts onto the water. Attached on one side, The Retreat enjoys glorious views of the Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary. From the comfort of the large leather sofas in the living room to the simple elegance of the bedrooms, the sparkling limestone flooring and the outstanding designer bathrooms, this retreat is beautifully furnished in a contemporary, very comfortable style and really is something very special. The house is set in a slightly elevated position a few yards from the water’s edge (double kayak provided), overlooks the estuary and is situated in the attractive grounds of the owners’ home off a peaceful, quiet private road on the outskirts of Kingsbridge. An outstanding feature of the property is the sun terrace, accessed from the beautiful master bedroom suite on the top floor, enclosed with steel and glass balustrades, and sheltered by an unusual and most attractive floodlit roof garden. A stunning spot to savour the views, delight in the wildlife of the estuary and ideal for al fresco meals. If you can bear to tear yourself away from this incomparable property, the area is spoilt for choice of places to visit, little hamlets and villages scattered across the surrounding countryside, the sailing havens of Dartmouth and Salcombe nearby, and the fantastic cliffs and golden beaches that make this part of the South Hams such a perfect holiday destination.
