A contemporary detached home with south facing decked terrace and direct water access set on the banks of the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary
A scheme designed by award-winning architect Stan Bolt with separate interior design, The Studio is a unique, detached property occupying one of the most beautiful, south facing locations at the mouth of Bowcombe Creek. The property benefits from spectacular water views as well as direct water access with a running mooring.
This contemporary home has been constructed to make the most of waterside living whilst being sympathetic to its surroundings. Centered around a tropical inner courtyard garden and arranged on one level, the accommodation has been designed to make the most of its position and while well-placed glazing maximises the views to the south, glazed roof panels create a light and spacious feel which is clear as soon as you step through the front door.
Designed for modern living, the open plan kitchen and sitting / dining room with large, feature fireplace is the perfect space for entertaining and takes centre stage. There is a cosy living room / snug with wood burner off the sitting room and a convenient boot room off the kitchen. There are two double bedrooms, each with walk-in dressing areas, en suite bathrooms and doors to the inner courtyard garden. There is also a cloakroom and utility / laundry room.
Outside, and accessed from the sitting / dining room, there is a fabulous, south facing decked terrace complete with an outside fire place and sunken hot tub to really make the most of the riverside setting. Stairs down lead to the garden which extends to around 0.35 acres. Situated under the decked area is a convenient store and to the side of The Studio is a car port and additional parking.
There is a private running mooring accessible directly from the garden (as with all moored vessels, a Salcombe Harbour Authority license will have to be purchased).
I love the individuality of this house! There just isn't another like it and what a spot!Amy Hart
