Description
Overbeck's

Elegant Edwardian house with diverse collections and luxuriant coastal garden

This beautiful garden offers spectacular views over the Salcombe estuary and surrounding coast. The 2.75-hectare (7-acre) garden has an intimate and informal atmosphere and is filled with rare and exotic plants, flourishing due to the sheltered micro-climate. The inventor Otto Overbeck lived here until 1937 and the house contains his collections of curios, natural history and nautical artefacts, as well as his most peculiar invention, the 'Rejuvenator'
