Highclere Slapton Kingsbridge

Magnificent views over the unspoilt countryside to the sea in Start Bay is just one attraction to this detached property which is very nicely situated on the southern edge of this unspoilt picturesque village just one mile from Slapton Sand and has been, until recently, successfully let as a holiday home. In addition to the large garden are two paddocks totalling two acres on part of which outline planning permission was granted on 28th January 2018 for the construction of two detached dwellings, application number 1736/17/OPA from the South Hams District Council. With the elevated position of the property the development will not restrict the far reaching views or deter from the enjoyment of the southerly facing garden and remaining paddock which provides a wonderful space for family hobbies and activities.

Highclere of traditional cavity wall construction under a slate roof certainly benefits from this commanding location but also provides a marvellous opportunity to remodel, extend or redevelop, subject to planning permission, to create a large dwelling. The oil fired centrally heated well presented accommodation comprises:
