Holset House (HOLSET)
About the home
As featured in the Mail on Sunday (October 2011).
LOCATION Set in and above the tiny hamlet of Holset just half a mile or so from East Portlemouth - the sailing waters of Salcombe can be reached quickly and easily via the small passenger ferry that runs all year round (or water taxi after 5.30pm during High Season). Gara Rock is a delightful 20-30 minute walk whilst the famous naval town of Dartmouth is a scenic 15 mile drive away.
VIEWS Stunning views across acres of countryside and farmland as far as the Dartmouth water tower in the distance from the first floor bedrooms in particular. Very pleasant views also from the sitting room, dining room and garden/terrace.
ENTRANCE From the gravelled driveway, a short walk leads to the side entrance door with level access into a sunny atrium. This in turn leads into the hallway which extends through to all other rooms on the ground floor. The atrium entrance lobby is an ideal place for coats, boots and shoes and leads in turn to a CHILDRENS' DEN area with table football and (at mezzanine level) a further room with sofa and games etc.
