Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This unique, historic and iconic period family home is in the very heart of downtown Salcombe with incredible views over the main anchorage towards East Portlemouth. It is an ideal weekend retreat or an investment opportunity. The property has private parking for two vehicles or boat trailers.

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, the three-storey property is detached and Grade II listed, with stunning uninterrupted views over the main Salcombe
anchorage over The Bag and towards East Portlemouth.

The house has been owned by the same family for about 21 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 and would make a wonderful weekend home. 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. The sitting room is the best room in the house with exceptional views and a balcony looking straight out over the estuary.

The house is currently let out for much of the year and would make an excellent investment property.

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.
