This superb house, built in the 1920’s, is impressive but the views are truly spectacular. Longfield is a beautifully appointed villa in 4 acres of manicured gardens set above the River Avon estuary at Bantham, with yachts moored in the river below and breathtaking unbroken views out to sea, past Bantham Beach and Burgh Island. Surrounded by immaculate landscaped gardens with tennis court and lawns reaching down towards the river, this substantial house has an air of St Tropez or the Hamptons and is light and airy throughout with stunning views from almost every room. The rooms are all handsomely furnished, extremely comfortable and equipped to the very highest standards. Highlights include a massive bay window in the sitting room with glorious 180 degree river and sea views, games room with full size snooker table, sitting room with smart TV and surround sound and magnificent master suite with bedroom, dressing room, bathroom and additional shower room.
Set in the picturesque seaside village of Bantham, Longfield is perfectly placed to explore this popular holiday area with its numerous long sandy beaches,
including fantastic surfing at Bantham Beach and golden sands of nearby Thurlestone.
