  • A one-of-a-kind World War 2 guard tower inventively redesigned
  • Romantic hideaway like no other with panoramic sea views and luxury, situated in an unrivalled location
  • Inspiring interior boasting numerous mod cons creating the perfect retreat all year round
Property code: 89376

This former guard tower once providing soldiers shelter to guard the Shaldon coastal defences, now provides a breath-taking retreat for couples during all seasons. Featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, indulge yourself with the ever-changing views of the stunning waterside location on the south bank of the River Teign. A short 50 metre stroll to the beach where you can take a ferry trip across to Teignmouth or visit the hidden Ness Cove beach accessed via an original smuggles tunnel 0.2 miles away. The heart of the village is a gentle wander away and provides a local butcher, bakery, village shop, pubs and much more, meaning everything is on hand within 1 mile.

 Although small in appearance, don’t be fooled as the inside space has been perfectly designed to ensure you’re equipped with everything you need. Take the external steps to the first floor and enter through into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner provides breath-taking sea views with large sliding windows, a dining space for two, comfy sofa, Smart TV which can be remotely hidden away, and a well-equipped kitchen including a built-in bean styled coffee machine. Other mod cons including Bluetooth speaker, iPad, mood lighting and underfloor heating ensure your stay is as luxurious as the view. Down the winding staircase you’ll enter the master king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room with blissful rainfall shower and LED mirror.

Outdoors you’re spoilt with two seating areas both with idyllic sea view settings. A grill BBQ, outdoor recliners and enclosed private garden space make it the perfect spot to unwind.

Such a well-appointed property, well equipped, comfortable and with views that are second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend The Gun House and hope to return next year.
