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

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.


We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.


In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
