Situation And Description - Sherford is a quaint village, known for its excellent "community" and a c13th church. The creek-side village of Frogmore, with its inn and bakery/village shop/post office is just a mile or so away. The public slipway at the head of the creek in Frogmore gives direct access to the water with the Kingsbridge estuary and Salcombe harbour beyond and moorings on the creek are available, subject to application and availability.

Kingsbridge is an historic estuary town with a wide range of excellent everyday facilities, including supermarket, banks, Post Office, shops, restaurants, garages, recreation centre and inns. Salcombe, at the mouth of the Kingsbridge Estuary, is one of the most prestigious coastal resorts and is well-known as a yachting centre, popular with both national and international sailors. The town has an excellent yacht club, some excellent quays and slipways with a number of sandy bays.

The M5 motorway and A38 Devon Expressway to Exeter, 38 miles away, provides links to London to the North and East as well as south to Plymouth. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Totnes and Plymouth. Exeter International Airport provides an ever increasing number of domestic and international flights including two flights a day to London City Airport.

Please Refer To The Attached Floorplan And The Accommodation Comprises:- - We understand Broomfield House was built in the mid 1800s and originally served as the dower house to nearby Stancombe Manor. In recent years the property has been tastefully updated whilst at the same time retaining many of its original period features including wood floors, window shutters and high ceilings and cornicing. It now provides a spacious family home with all of the principal rooms benefitting from delightful, south facing views over the surrounding countryside.

The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a conservatory - which catches the morning sun - and a tiled and panelled entrance hall.
To the right of the hall is a cloakroom and utility room whilst to the left is the drawing room (which has a wood burning stove) and a dining room with double doors leading out onto the covered veranda.


A breakfast room leads through to the kitchen which has fitted wooden units, an oil-fired Aga and integrated appliances. A wine store and larder is found off the breakfast room. A further door (currently out of use) could lead through to the attached cottage.

First And Second Floor - There are THREE BEDROOMS on the first floor and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom has an ornamental fireplace and a large en-suite with a stand-alone bath and separate shower and bidet.
On the second floor there are TWO FURTHER BEDROOMS, one of which could be potentially used as a playroom or office, and a further bathroom.

Cyclamen Cottage - Attached at the side of the main house is Cyclamen Cottage which can be accessed either from the gardens, or a separate path from the road. A south-facing terrace and double doors lead into the sitting room with a wood burning stove. Steps lead up to the fitted kitchen with an integrated oven and a separate shower room. Further steps lead up to the bedroom with a vaulted beamed ceiling and views over the surrounding land. The cottage has been rented in the past and could be used as additional family accommodation or as a let for additional income.

Outside - Broomfield House is approached over a driveway which leads to an extensive gravelled hard standing area with ample room for at least five vehicles.
To the front and side (south and east) is a full-length veranda which receives the sun for much of the day. The gardens to the front of the house are mainly lawned and bordered by hedging and trees and enjoy expansive views over the church and village and countryside beyond.
Gravelled steps lead to the orchard with many established apple and pear trees and a seating area whilst across the gravelled parking area is a further large lawned garden to the rear of the property with an open fronted shed, vegetable patch and summerhouse.
