Charming mid terrace house with sea views

I have a 1920`s 2 bedroom house, one double, one single with a trundle bed, and a summer house in the garden, which has a sofa bed in there. Downstairs is open plan with lots of character and french doors which open onto the beautiful, large garden. We love our home, are extremely comfortable here and are spoilt for choice with the nearby beaches. I have a paddle board and body boards you are welcome to use and there is basket ball and table tennis in the garden. There is parking for one car to the left of the house, as you look from the front of the building, although you can fit another one there if needs be. The garden has a fire pit and built in seating area, as well as a 7ft bench and table for Al Fresco dining! The garden has sunshine all day and the front garden set the sunshine for the most part also. The bathroom is well equipped with a stand in shower and bath tub, sink and toilet. The kitchen has a ceramic hob with 4 rings, dishwasher, washer dryer, microwave, oven and a large American style fridge freezer with ice and water filter dispensers. It`s a very comfortable and stylish home, light and airy and keeps warm with an exceptional log burner in the winter. It is a family home to myself and my 12 year old son and we are very happy here. I do have a dog, who would love to stay and be walked, but I can also find somewhere for her to stay whilst the exchange is taking place, equally I am happy to walk your dog or feed your cat? I would rather not house other peoples dogs, but please do feel free to discuss with me. (The house sleeps 4, but I have the summerhouse with a double bed .....)

About the location

Bigbury on Sea is a 5 minute drive away (2.5 miles), where you will find Burgh Island, most famous for Agatha Christies Poirot, and Challaborough can be walked to in under 30 mins across the fields. Bantham beach is around the corner and all 3 beaches are very popular with surfers! There are some great water sports hire facilities at Bigbury and Bantham in the summer or at South Milton, which is a short drive away, and Kingsbridge on the estuary offer SUP lessons and boards. There is the famous Bigbury On Sea Golf Course, which has beautiful views of Burgh Island, which is a 3 minute drive from the house. Plymouth is the nearest city, which is good for big shops and can be driven to in less than half an hour. Exeter is about 45 mins from here, where the nearest airport is. Kingsbridge is the nearest town and can be reached to in 15 minutes on the tidal road (if the tide is out) or 20 minutes if the tide is in! There are some lovely pubs around, the main one is the Pickwick Inn, just 1 minute walk up the road, where they do fantastic Sunday roasts and the best chunky chips in the South West!! The Pilchard Inn is on Burgh island, which you can walk to across the beach when the tide is out, or on the sea tractor if the tide is in! There is Woodlands theme park on the way to Dartmouth (about a 30 minute drive away) which is immense fun for the kids and a great family day out.
