Highclere Slapton 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 is a paddock extending to an acre, over which are far reaching country views to the south providing a wonderful space for family hobbies and activities. With the elevated position of the property the development of two detached houses in the field below will not restrict the far reaching views or deter from the enjoyment of the garden. 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:
- Magnificent views
- Paddock extending to an acre
- Successful Holiday Let
- Opportunity for alterations or re-development

Right of way over the entrance drive to tarmac parking area beside the property connecting with the gardens.
To the front of the property is a pathway below which heathers and flower beds lead onto a large lawn surrounded by hedging, small trees, flowering shrubs and along the bottom a grass bank. The lawn bounded by a hedge continues to the side linking with the rear level garden again laid to grass. 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. From the garden and lying to the south of the property is a near level field laid to grass and extending to approximately one acre largely bounded by earth banks and hedges.
In the field to the east and sloping away from the property planning permission was granted on the 28th of January 2018 for the construction of 2 detached dwellings, application number 1736/17/OPA from South Hams District Council.
To carry out the development of the two dwellings a new shared driveway will be constructed improving the access from the highway and a new entrance will be created for Highclere in the north eastern corner of the front garden. The works and costs will form part of the development.
