About this property

  • The gently rolling countryside of East Devon provides a breathtaking setting for this superb opportunity. With planning permission in place Saxons offers a chance to create a wonderful home nestled in the sought-after Blackdown Hills. The permission allows for a five bedroom family home with spacious reception room, study, playroom and open plan kitchen/breakfast room with family room. The existing bungalow comprises 1/2 reception rooms and 2/3 bedrooms. This will be demolished following the completion of the new property and will allow comfortable living accommodation whilst construction is ongoing.

    The gardens and grounds are beautifully secluded with lawns and areas of woodland. The new property will sit centrally to its gardens, surrounded by lawns and allowing beautiful views of the valley. There is an existing detached double garage with large log store and the new development also includes a detached double garage with office and shower room above. A new access driveway has been approved allowing a more convenient access in and out of the site.

You don't often find an opportunity for a self-build project that offers such seclusion and far reaching views.
