Dream home with private beach and 'spellbinding' views on sale for £2million
Bar Lodge is a secluded Edwardian five-bedroom house perched on a rocky cliff face just outside Salcombe, Devon, and could appeal as a main home or a holiday house
An incredible home with its own private beach and 'spellbinding' panoramic views has gone on sale for £2million.
Bar Lodge is a secluded Edwardian five-bedroom house perched on a rocky cliff face just outside Salcombe, Devon.
The dream home's key features include a spectacular clifftop setting, small private beach, 4/5 bedrooms, a self contained annex if required, and coastal gardens and terracing.
Its current owners have lived there for 20 years but have decided to move on and have put it up for sale with Savills .
They describe it as an 'iconic, clifftop Edwardian house in the most impressive waterside location at the mouth of the Salcombe Estuary with spellbinding views and it's own private beach'.
Agent Sarah-Jane Bingham-Chick told Devon Live : "Although Bar Lodge has been the main home for the current owners for over 20 years, they describe it as their holiday home because they always feel like they are on holiday."
Built in 1902, the 'well-presented' semi-detached property has 'an entrance hall, a well presented kitchen/living area, double bedroom and a shower room' on the ground floor, as well as a first floor with three bedrooms and a large family bathroom.
The lower ground floor 'offers a second kitchen, sitting room, dining room and shower room.
Alternatively, the lower ground floor makes an ideal self-contained annex with the dining room becoming a spacious double bedroom if required'.
As for the gardens, the description continues: "The gardens are a delight at Bar Lodge and offer a lovely setting for alfresco entertaining in the sunshine whilst enjoying these glorious and hard to beat views.
"The gardens are well established and home to a large variety of coastal shrubs and flowers with steps and pathways leading to a small private beach.
"There is off street parking for 2/3 vehicles."
There is also planning permission for a new detached house within the grounds, although 'this is not included in the sale of Bar Lodge but may be available by separate negotiation'.
Savills say the property could appeal as both a main home or a holiday let and say the views are 'worth their weight in gold'.
"Bar Lodge, a wonderful family clifftop home within the conservation area of Salcombe, enjoys panoramic views across the estuary, the Salcombe Bar and out to sea," they continue.
"Arguably offering one of the most spectacular vistas along the South Coast, this Edwardian house has long been a familiar marker for many sailors navigating their way into the mouth of the estuary.
"The house borders the National Trust estate of Overbecks and has the benefit of the South Devon Coast Path running past the front door.
"For those looking for a coastal retreat as either a main home or a holiday home, Bar Lodge is hard to beat."
