Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Farmhouse at Broad Downs, a former farmstead, has been beautifully restored by the current owners using high quality materials and local craftsmen.

Location

Salcombe about 3 miles, Kingsbridge about 4.5 miles, Hope Cove and beach about 3 miles (Distances are approximate)

Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty less than a mile from Malborough, a popular and thriving South Hams village that lies between Kingsbridge and Salcombe.

The village amenities include a primary school, two pubs, a restaurant, a post office and a filling station with small supermarket.

Within a few miles of the property there are six sandy beaches all connected by the beautiful South West Coast Path.

Despite Broad Downs’ rural location it lies in close proximity of Salcombe, renowned as a sailing and boating centre.

Description

The extensive renovation includes carpenter oak extensions creating a fantastic drawing room with airy vaulted ceilings and full-height apex windows overlooking the unspoilt rural views. The natural stone floors and spectacular oak timbers continue into the family room and dining room; open-plan yet cleverly divided by a central fireplace with double-sided wood burning stove. The bi-fold doors opening to the kitchen allow these rooms the flexibility for open plan living or can be closed-off for a contained kitchen; perfectly designed to adapt to both family life and formal entertaining.

The original part of the farmhouse, thought to date from circa 1879 and not listed, has been sympathetically updated whilst retaining many period features and traditional style. The original entrance, with classical slate canopy and flagstone hallway is flanked by the sitting room and study.

Half of the first floor is dedicated to the master bedroom suite with dressing room, walk-in wardrobe and luxurious en suite with both bath and shower. There are two more double bedrooms on the first floor, one with an en suite bathroom. The second floor has a family bathroom and two large bedrooms. These bedrooms both have generous built-in storage and, at over 22 foot in length, could be reconfigured if a further bedroom were required (subject to the necessary consents).

The Piggery
Nestled behind the farmhouse is The Piggery, a separate single storey annexe. Like the farmhouse The Piggery has been renovated to a high standard with a contemporary feel. The accommodation comprises a sitting room with log burner, open plan kitchen and dining area, double bedroom, bunk room and shower room.

Gardens And Grounds
The Farmhouse is surrounded by approximately 4.5 acres of Sussex fenced gardens and pasture. The gardens immediately surrounding the house are beautifully landscaped, with stone patios and terraces with lawns beyond. A quintessential lavender lined pathway leads to the front of the house. Behind the house there is the outdoor heated swimming pool and a secluded area with fruit trees, including a spectacular and productive fig tree. Through an enchaining arch in the privet hedge is a meadow and a natural pond, a haven for wildlife.

Square Footage: 4,375 sq ft
Acreage: 4.5 Acres
