Highclere Slapton Kingsbridge

Highclere offers a well presented four/five bedroom detached house in the sought after location of Slapton. Generous family accommodation, plus large private gardens, a paddock. Option to purchase a further two plots in a separate negotiation with planning permission granted.

Magnificent views over the unspoilt countryside to the sea in Start Bay is just one attraction. Highclere is a detached property which is nicely situated on the southern edge of this unspoilt picturesque village, just one mile from Slapton Sands. In addition to the garden of the main house is the one acre paddock situated to the side. The land to the lower side of the property has been granted full planning permission for two detached dwellings which can be purchased in a separate negotiation. Application number 2799/20/ARM from the South Hams District Council.

With the elevated position of the property the development will not restrict the far reaching views or detract from the enjoyment of the south facing garden and remaining paddock which provides a wonderful space for family hobbies and activities. .

The centre of the village is only a short walk away where two Public Houses, Village Hall and the Church can be found. Less than a mile away the beautiful pebble beach of Slapton Sands can be found along with the freshwater nature reserve of Slapton Ley. The spectacular South West Coastal path is joined here on the stretch between Dartmouth and Start Point. For a wide variety of shops, commercial, health, educational and leisure facilities the market towns of Kingsbridge and Dartmouth are both within eight miles on a main bus route. Highclere, of traditional cavity wall construction under a tiled 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:

On the ground floor the hallway leads through to the open plan kitchen / living room affording views over beautiful countryside to the sea in the distance with patio door opening to the front terrace. The kitchen provides plenty of work surfaces, a range of fitted appliances including a Diplomat electric oven, plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher, as well as space for a fridge freezer and tumble dryer. Off the side of the kitchen leads to a light and airy sun room achieving country and sea views with access to the private garden.

What is currently used as a dining room has the option to become a fifth bedroom providing spectacular sea and countryside views. A further bedroom and separate bathroom can be found on this floor. This is the perfect lay out for the ever changing family lifestyle with general flexible accommodation.

The first floor accommodates three bedrooms and a bathroom, with bedroom three benefiting from sea views and a lookout over the countryside.

The rear of the property provides ample parking, large detached garage and side garden. The pathway brings you to the front of the property with a large private south facing garden mainly laid to lawn surrounded by hedging, small trees and flowering shrubs . Adjacent to the house is a south-facing one acre paddock providing the perfect space for all the family to enjoy or to keep small holding animals.

Within the garden are block built sheds, two providing storage and a third housing the oil fired boiler supplying the central heating and hot water systems. To the rear is a screened oil storage tank.

PLOTS – Purchased in a separate negotiation. 

Lying to the east and gently sloping away from the property is a field laid to grass of approximately 1 acre accessed over the grass track to the side of the garden. It is this field that has the benefit of the planning permission. The plots will have an area in the region of one third of an acre, each nestling very nicely into the gently sloping hillside and having a southerly aspect. The plans show two storey dwellings: Plot 1 – Ground floor – 78m2, First Floor – 69m2             Plot 2 – Ground Floor – 86m2, First Floor – 62m. Please contact the office for more information about the plots.
