A Grade II Listed historically and unique property in the heart of Salcombe with stunning estuary views over the main Salcombe anchorage, The Bag and towards East Portlemouth. No EPC required.
Salcombe is renowned as a sailing and boating centre, located beside one of the loveliest estuaries in the South West with miles of sheltered water and fine sandy beaches on either side towards its mouth. The popular town has an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants.
The Custom House is a true Salcombe landmark, sitting adjacent to the Lifeboat Station in the very heart of the town. Constructed in the mid 19th Century this 3 storey property enjoys fabulous uninterrupted water views.
Owned by the same family for 20 years and boasts a fine history as the former customs and excise house for the town, it has some lovely features such as the bespoke period staircase. It has been refurbished over recent years to a good standard throughout including a newly overhauled roof and new dormer windows.
The main rooms take advantage of the exceptional position and have southerly aspects, including the kitchen / breakfast room, master bedroom and first floor sitting room.
The kitchen / breakfast room looks straight out to the estuary, with large windows letting in plenty of light. It has a fitted dresser, base and wall mounted units, a recessed area houses an Aga together with plenty of food preparation areas.
The master bedroom is also on the ground floor with an en-suite bathroom, whilst a back door leads in from a rear courtyard to a utility room. A cloakroom lies off the hallway, with a bespoke, handmade handrail on the stairs leading to the upper floors.
The sitting room on the first floor is a splendid room, with stripped pine floor boards and a feature fireplace housing a large log burner. French windows lead out onto a wide balcony stretching the width of the room, overlooking the estuary. The views are unparalleled.
There are two further bedrooms on this floor, one with a balcony, and a separate wet room. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor.
The house is currently let out for much of the year and would make an excellent investment property, generating up to £4,000 per week during peak season. Many of the clients are repeat customers. From a rental perspective, the house is ideally set up for one or two families but is also the perfect retreat for smaller groups looking to enjoy the spectacular location at quieter times of the year.
The ownership of the property extends to the edge of the quay, where there is private parking for two vehicles or boat trailers, with access just off Union Street.
