The Spinney is a charming period house on the Salcombe Estuary set in its own private gardens and grounds. The property was built in the early 1900s and benefits from planning permission to extend and adapt the dwelling to provide living space of around 4,000sq ft.

As the house currently stands, it offers just over 2,000sqft of interior space, with entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, snug, morning room, kitchen, study/6th bedroom and extensive attic storage. Bedroom accommodation includes the master suite and four further bedrooms, plus the family bathroom and a WC.

Outside, the terrace provides an idyllic setting for outdoor entertaining and the outbuildings, including a summerhouse, offer an incredible amount of potential.
