Salcombe is an extremely affluent and popular coastal town in the South Hams district of Devon, south west England. The town lies on the banks of the Salcombe Estuary and it widely regarded as one of the prettiest towns in South Devon and one of the UK’s most desirable waterside destinations.
The town is accessed via the A381, which in turn links with the A38, providing connectivity to Plymouth and Cornwall in the west and the M5 at Junction 31 at Exeter in the east.
Island Place is a unique high end development benefiting from a prime and prominent position in relation to the town centre and waterfront.
Situated on Gould Road on the north west side of the town centre, the property benefits from heavy pedestrian flow by virtue of immediate proximity to the town’s only short stay and long stay parking provisions; Shadycombe Car Park directly opposite and The Creek Car Park immediately adjacent.
The town has a distinct lack of national multiple food retailers and as a consequence the newly provided store will prove popular to tourists and residents alike, benefitting from a monopoly on the current provision.
