One of the most highly acclaimed holiday homes in Britain is now up for sale at a cool £2 million pounds in Devon South West of England.  The riverside cottage which is subject to numerous positive comments from newspapers magazines and guides has been reduced in price by the present owners.
The Old Bakehouse in Tuckenhay, directly adjoining the River Dart is described by local papers as “Iconic”, “Landmark” and Historic”.  The Totnes times said “This house is considered to be one of the most spectacular in the region”.  The Western Morning News said “Nothing can prepare you for the stunning attention to interior detail”.  Owned by International Best Selling Business Author and Thought Leader, Jonathan Blain, it has been put on the market for the first time in over 30 years.
It has previously featured on the front cover of the South Devon Tourist Guide; it appears in a number of books of the area and has been the subject of countless works of art.  To say it is “special” is an understatement.   The Independent said “This one’s got it all” and Country Life and Justin King Chief Executive of Sainsbury’s have both described it as “Fantastic”.  Britain’s biggest selling weekly magazine, The Week, recently featured it as one of the eighth best properties on the country in areas of outstanding natural beauty.
So what makes it so special?  It is really a combination of different factors:
The lifestyle and quality of life that it offers is second to none
Living in it is an experience, it is a haven of peace and tranquillity, it touches your senses and lifts your spirits
Its connection to the natural world, makes you think you are living on the set of a David Attenborough wildlife programme
It is in one of the hottest parts of a holiday hotspot, described as “England’s favourite playground”
It combines, rural with nautical, old with new

With two magnificent waterside pubs in the tiny village that you can row and walk to subject to the tide, one of which was voted number 6 in the Sunday Times best days out in 2008 and the other was previously owned by celebrity chef Keith Floyd, you are spoilt for choice.  There are frequent barbecues on the quayside and life music.  There are a further two lovely pubs a comfortable stroll away too.  With stunning footpaths, there are beautiful walks in every direction and to top it off, with direct river access, you can get in a boat from your private landing stage and go to Dartmouth and out into the English Channel.
Until the credit crunch and global recession, this would have cost you in excess of £3million, now it can be yours for an amazing £2million.  Could this be the bargain of the century?
Your holiday is a chance to relax and recharge your batteries, to spend quality time with your family and friends and to rediscover how good life can be.
