Salcombe is an extremely affluent and popular coastal town in the South Hams district of Devon, south west England. The town lies on the banks of the Salcombe Estuary and it widely regarded as one of the prettiest towns in South Devon and one of the UK’s most desirable waterside destinations, known for its exceptional coastal views and position within an Area of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB).

The town’s extensive waterfront and naturally sheltered harbour formed by the estuary have made the location hugely successful as a maritime haven, with a thriving economy centred around pleasure sailing and yachting. The town is a major tourism destination, with a peak season population extending to nearly 25,000 and approximately 39% of all households being classified as second or holiday homes.

The local economy caters for affluent clientele, with a range of boutique retailers, art galleries, nautical associated businesses and an abundance of places to eat and drink. The town is accessed via the A381, which in turn links with the A38, providing connectivity to Plymouth and Cornwall in the west and the M5 at Junction 31 at Exeter in the east.




Each of the 6 residential units and the commercial unit have been granted a 999 year interest from 1 January 2018, each paying an initial ground rent of £250 per annum and providing a total initial ground rent of £1,750 per annum. The rent is to be reviewed on 1 January 2028 and every 10 years thereafter, in line with RPI.

The Freehold interest has granted an Overriding Lease (999 years) of the property in its entirety to the long leasehold tenants' Management Company.

The Overriding Lease imposes an obligation on the Management Company to carry out all of the Landlord’s obligations contained in the individual long leasehold interests e.g. with regard to building insurance, repair and maintenance.

Under the Overriding Lease the Management Company is required to pay an annual rent to the Freeholder. This is expressed to be the aggregate of the yearly sums reserved in the residential and commercial leases.
