Former school rooms make for a charming cottage

As the name suggests the Old School House was once part of a village school in Galmpton.

Old School House has an abundance of charm and character with well-proportioned rooms. It benefits from a delightful kitchen/breakfast room, an adaptable garden room/study area and two good sized bedrooms - one with an adjoining balcony overlooking farmland.

The property enjoys open views of rolling countryside while being a short drive to the beaches of the historic fishing village of Hope Cove.

It has a well-established, low-maintenance courtyard garden with useful stone workshop plus dedicated parking.

Marchant Petit in Salcombe has been instructed to market the property and Director Harriet Cundy said: “The Old School House is lovely and is decent sized accommodation for someone who wants full-time accommodation or wants an easy-to-maintain Devon retreat that is ideally located close to Hope Cove.”

The Old School House is on the market at a guide price of £375,000 through Marchand Petit’s Salcombe office. Further details may be obtained by telephoning 01548 844473.
