Outstanding coastal position
Approximately 20.25 acres
Thorns is a substantial detached property which is currently divided into two apartments. The two bedroom apartment on the first floor has been beautifully refurbished to take advantage of the truly spectacular views, whilst the apartment on the ground floor is in need of updating but offers enormous potential. The current configuration of the property provides an opportunity for income via letting, or could also be used as accommodation for additional family members. Subject to the purchaser obtaining the relevant planning consents, the property could be converted into one residence to create a spectacular, substantial waterside property.
The ground floor has two entrances: one into a spacious entrance hall and the other into a boot room with a staircase leading up to the first floor apartment. Each of the rooms is spacious, with the fabulous views taken advantage of from all angles. There are two reception rooms; a bright and spacious sitting room with glass sliding doors, and a dining room with a set of glass sliding doors leading to a raised terrace which looks out towards the gardens and coast. The large kitchen/breakfast room is at the heart of the ground floor, with an electric Aga, extractor fan and a kitchen island. A door from the kitchen leads to a separate utility room. Each of these rooms enjoy spectacular sea views. There are three double bedrooms on the ground floor, two with glass doors leading out to the raised terrace with superb sea views. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and a dressing room area. A family bathroom completes the ground floor.
A side door from the ground floor opens into a boot room with a staircase which leads to the first floor apartment. At the heart of the first floor is a very light and spacious open plan sitting room/dining room with large glass doors opening out to a Juliet balcony which enjoys exceptional views out towards the sea.
More incredible views can be enjoyed from the kitchen/breakfast room, accessed via double doors from the sitting room. The kitchen has an electric hob, oven and an integrated dishwasher. There are two fabulous windows within the roof which open out to create a balcony, cleverly designed to take full advantage of the vista. There are two double bedrooms on the first floor, one with a balcony window looking out to the sea. There is also a stylish Jack and Jill family bathroom with Velux windows looking out to the views. A cloakroom, laundry room and a very large workshop/storage room complete the first floor.
Thorns has a double garage with a side door to a covered entrance providing easy access to the house. Another door leads directly into the pool room where there is a swimming pool measuring 24’ x 12’, heated by solar panels.
Thorns is approached via a long private driveway, with electric gates at the entrance. The driveway sweeps down the hill towards the property, round the house to a forecourt outside the double garage which provides parking for a number of vehicles.
The gardens and grounds measure approximately 20.25 acres and extend around the property providing a high degree of privacy and seclusion. The area in front of the house is mainly laid to lawn, with a number gravel pathways and raised beds with a wide variety of flora including colourful heathers and long grasses. There is a well-placed seating area, ideally situated for enjoying the spectacular sea views. The remaining land has been left as a natural habitat with acres of mature trees and shrubs, as well as areas of woodland, providing a haven for a variety of wildlife.
The Beaches and Foreshore:
A pathway from the garden meanders through the grounds leading down to Cherryred Beach. From this pathway, outstanding views along the beautiful south Devon coastline can be enjoyed, reaching as far as Dorset. A short walk from Cherryred beach across some rocks leads to Smugglers Cove, which is a stretch of sand with references dating back to the early 17th century. Located approximately 40 yards up the lower cliffs is the footprint of the former Labrador Bay Hotel, which burned down in 1938.
