About this property

Presented to a high standard throughout an elegant 5 bedroomed late 19th Century Sea Captain's house conveniently positioned close to the town centre and enjoying estuary views. Annexe, garden, double garage, ample parking/boat storage.

The beautiful estuary town of Salcombe is located in the heart of the South Devon region known as the South Hams, which is known for having an uncommonly temperate climate, verdant unspoilt countryside, hidden combs and a spectacular coastline. Arguable one of the most sought after waterfront locations in the UK, Salcombe is the perfect setting for this beautiful elegant home. Once a thriving fishing village, Salcombe still retains much of its original charm and character. The property sits within a short walk of the town, with its many restaurants, local pubs and boutique shops. More extensive shopping and amenities are available in Kingsbridge. The Salcombe estuary has numerous sandy beaches, coves and sheltered anchorages, all of which make it an excellent base for dingy sailing, water sports, boating and long walks along the beautiful coastline. Salcombe is also a famous yachting centre and provides a perfect cruising base from which to explore France, The Channel Islands and the beautiful harbours and creeks of the West Country.

The A38 Devon Expressway is about 15 miles to the north, providing dual carriageway access to the M5 motorway at Exeter. There are good intercity rail services from Totnes to London Paddington and a growing number of UK and international flights from Exeter airport. Brittany ferries operate services to France, Spain and the Channel Islands from their terminal at Plymouth.

Somerset House is a most stunning property situated within the much sought after and highly regarded coastal town of Salcombe. Over recent years, this elegant Victorian residence has undergone a most comprehensive and sympathetic refurbishment, carefully combining modern day comforts with original features to create a most up to date family home of distinctive character. Somerset House provides bright, well proportioned accommodation with many rooms enjoying views either of the garden or out across the town towards the estuary. The principal accommodation is arranged over 3 floors entering through an impressive entrance porch where immediately the period features and beautiful interior design can be enjoyed.

At the front of the property a shared tarmacadam driveway leads up to a parking for up to 3 cars. The back of the property is approached off a private lane leading off Allenhayes Road. A timber gate opens into a gravelled parking area with space for cars, boats etc. Detached double garage with electric doors ideal for boat storage. The rear garden where there is a large paved terrace and timber deck with glass and stainless steel balustrading. Attractive flower beds and rockery featuring an ornamental olive tree, timber summerhouse and timber roundhouse with seating. Also a courtyard with terracotta tiling. All perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining. There is another access through a door on the lower ground floor to the side of the property which provides ample storage for paddle boards, wet suits etc.

On entering Salcombe from Kingsbridge turn left at the first crossroads into Onslow Road. Follow this road towards the bottom of the hill and as it bends towards the church, take a very sharp right hand turn into Devon Road. Follow this road around for about 150 yards and the property will be found on the right hand side.
