Set over 1.56 acres overlooking the Salcombe Estuary, the property is surrounded by lush rolling hills and mature trees. The home sits around a courtyard, which is approached through electronically operated gates, offering total privacy and ample parking. Originally built in 1836, the conversion of ‘Rectory Barn’ was developed by the Harrison Sutton Partnership and completed in 2009. The modernisation included high specification interiors and meticulous attention to detail. 

The home was impressively designed to bring the indoors outside, maximising light and showcasing the beauty of the surrounding nature. Both the kitchen and living room on the first floor open onto the sun terrace and gardens. Built for entertaining, the impressive kitchen includes an adjoining pantry-kitchen with a pair of Gaggenau refrigerator and freezer, ice machine, wine fridge, ample storage space, and the ability to be closed off by pocket doors. The family living room features vaulted ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and library. 

Upon entry, the industrial inspired entry hall features a unique spiral wine cellar and is flooded by natural light from the skylights above. The main accommodations span the ground floor. A spacious principal suite includes two dressing rooms and en-suite bathroom. There are three additional bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom and built-in wardrobes. The impressive media room includes wall to wall library shelving with bespoke units featuring a built-in TV and surround sound. An internal lift provides access to both floors of the house. Above the triple garage is a spacious air conditioned studio/office/5th bedroom suite that includes a kitchenette and en-suite shower room. 

The garden and grounds are immaculately presented and bordered by a wild meadow and lavender bed. Adjacent to the main house on the patio, the hydro pool and gym sit within a covered and insulated structure, meaning they can be enjoyed year round. The terrace is planted with herb and strawberry beds, and within the garden is a raspberry and strawberry fruit cage. An orchard sits at the top of the garden that flows into woodland area with meandering pathways. Intelligently constructed, a service void wraps around the main house, encasing the boiler, pool equipment, heating pipes, the central VAC system, and more. It is easily accessible and provides extensive storage. 

East Portlemouth is a small coastal village on the east bank of the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary. It is home to long sandy beaches, hidden coves, rock pools, and backed by woodland areas with coastal paths. Just a short walk to the beach, this popular summer retreat destination offers boating, paddle boarding, swimming, relaxation, fine dining, and casual nightlife. As its closest neighbour, Salcombe features wonderful independent shops, galleries, cafes, eateries, and is only a short passenger ferry ride away, which operates 365 days of the year.
