Substantial family home to make your own

The Borogoves in Galmpton near Salcombe is a deceptively spacious and impressive detached house with extensive and flexible accommodation.

With attractive stone and brick faced elevations, The Borogoves is located in a very private and well-screened garden at the end of a small cul-de-sac and enjoys most attractive views across the valley to fields and to the sea beyond Hope Cove.

This unusual property has a substantial lower ground floor, where previously the swimming pool was housed, along with two further rooms which could be put to a variety of uses. 

On the same level, there is a large integral garage which could accommodate up to four vehicles depending on size.

The main living accommodation has a degree of flexibility, since it would be very simple to add a sun room or dining room in the place of the covered terrace beside the kitchen. The dining room could then be used as a fourth bedroom.

Harriet Cundy, Director of Salcombe’s leading estate agent Marchand Petit, said: “The Borogoves represents an opportunity for some imaginative alteration to turn, what is already a substantial house, into something really special.” 

The Borogoves also benefits from a large first floor sun terrace with superb views towards the sea at Bigbury Bay, past Bolt Tail to the Eddystone lighthouse.

The Borogoves is on the market at a guide price of £750,000 through Marchand Petit’s Salcombe office. Further details may be obtained by telephoning 01548 844473
