Pitcairn Onslow Road Salcombe


Pitcairn Onslow Road Salcombe

Pitcairn is a traditional semi-detached house, built in 1926, which is ideally situated on Onslow Road, providing convenient access to the centre of Salcombe, with rural views towards West Charleton and the upper reaches of the Salcombe Estuary.  This property has been owned by the same family for over forty years and has been maintained to an exceptionally high standard, as a large family house.  Upstairs, currently there are three large Double Bedrooms, but the Attic Room (which is carpeted and currently has a wonderful Hornby 00 Gauge model railway train set running in a circular track) offers the potential, subject to planning permission, to be developed into fourth Bedroom, with Ensuite. 

At the front of the property there is parking for one car, whilst at the rear, the delightfully designed garden, which has a small workshop and separate Store Room, has additional parking for three cars.  This is a unique and deceptive property, which may be considered as being a quintessential Tardis, that upon purchase is ready to be walked into, without the requirement of any immediate renovation.
