Salcombe Retreat is a warmly-inviting, contemporary home set in the woods, offering sleek architectural finesse and light-filled accommodation blending modern comfort with home-like appeal, on the edge of well-heeled Salcombe.
This compelling home is every inch the polished sea-side home, providing a slick and fresh space for a large family or group of up to twenty to spread out and adjust the pace within an environment hallmarked by chic interiors, designer flair and quality of raw materials and fittings.
Guests will simply exhale and relax as they enter this woodland world of flawless comfort, open-plan living and understated luxury. Executed with group living in mind, guests can enjoy both privacy and abundant potential for vivacious, sociable living.
The open-plan spaces have an ease about them, providing unpretentious yet ever-so tasteful ambience; low hanging designer lighting pops of zingy colour such as lime greens and aqua, hints at the nautical setting and fresh, Scandinavian style. Salcombe Retreat provides the ideal space for a family to reconnect within a bright, airy and luminescent environment, away from the bustle of the crowds and the strains of modern living.
The magnificent dining table is a natural timber beauty, seating twenty – nestled against the floor to ceiling glass which offers a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living. Guests can enjoy long and leisurely meals; late and indulgent breakfasts or mouth-watering barbecue dinners under the stars and aside from the mysterious woodlands.
Finished with charisma and panache, this home has playful touches, and will appeal to all ages; the pièce de resistance is the building-length huge terrace style balcony, offering a sumptuous room for dining, relaxing, enjoying a good book in peace, strolling across to the table tennis table or slipping into the bubbling hot tub whilst breathing in the night air.
Salcombe Retreat was formerly a writer’s nook, and thus provides an ideal retreat for artists, writers and creatives; there are glimpses of the sparkling ocean and the Salcombe sands through the whispering trees; this is truly a magical escape – like a very refined treehouse!
At the end of the day, guests can curl up, cosily on the sofas, with the lambswool throws in front of the log burning open fire, and in the morning the canopy of trees will rustle with the sound of birdsong; Salcombe Retreat is a home which imbibes its natural surroundings.
Modern finishes compliment the gorgeous soft fabrics and use of wonderful natural materials; exposed brick and timber are recurrent, whilst a confident design eye has selected a range of retro and contemporary furniture. The kitchen is a stylish open-plan affair, with a long breakfast bar, accents of teal and charcoal in a matte finish; a blend of industrial steely greys and soft oak with uplifting splashes of aqua to create a bright and airy space.
Blending effortlessly, the living space is low-key, offering hanging pods, comfortable sofas, edgy lighting and great entertainment potential for “downtime” or movie nights.
Salcombe Retreat accommodates twenty guests, across the main house and annexe. The bedrooms offer both simplicity and luxury: a fresh, airy, nautical air permeates these bright, spacious bedrooms, finished with crisp cotton linen. Guests are guaranteed a wonderful nights sleep, against the restful backdrop of soft taupes, whites and dreamy palette with the rustle of the leaves outside.
Over two acres of land at this home comprise mysterious paths and verdant trees, terraced gardens with beautiful gable and herringbone stonework, offering ample space to roam, explore, play or have sumptuous picnics.
Salcombe Retreat offers the final word in discreet luxury; simplicity blends with innate glamour and every little extra touch has been thought of within an ambience which is effortlessly low-key, vibrant and uplifting within flawless architectural design and light-filled interiors.
