About this property

With five bedrooms, five bathrooms, glorious open-plan living, and tons of outside space, this brand new home perched in a beautiful spot overlooking the South Hams coast, proves that reconnecting with nature doesn’t mean you have to rough it. Settling in the South Devon hills that back the three-mile stretch of shingle beach known as Slapton Sands, Higher Poole offers an exceptional retreat for friends or families longing to shun their hectic schedules. Jaw-dropping architecture and beautifully styled spaces create a home that’s beyond fabulous, with every room’s layout capitalising on the most unbelievable coastal views.

This is a place where you can truly get away from it all. Play, feast, unwind, explore. Your bedroom has glass sliding doors and its own sea view, so you can unashamedly commit yourself to long morning lie-ins without feeling like you're missing out. Indoor and outdoor living areas and kitchens mean that lounging and entertaining can both be relished inside and out, with a log fire to keep you toasty in cooler weather, and loungers on the terrace for sunning yourself on warm, bright days. To the back of the house and perched above the garden, a large hot tub invites luxurious alfresco soaks overlooking the valley and sea, and with its incredible south-facing vantage you’ll be treated to stunning views and out-of-this-world sunrises.

The South West Coast Path which starts at Slapton Sands, is a scenic twenty-minute walk away (or few minutes’ drive), so for those who enjoy salt-water dips or exploring the coast on foot, it doesn’t get much better. Also within a short walk from the house is Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve which boasts the biggest natural lake in south-west England, while umpteen wonderful beaches including Beesands, Bantham and Mill Bay are within easy reach. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Devon’s South Hams is a nature lovers dream where ramblers, birdwatchers, swimmers, and dog owners have some of the prettiest spots to indulge their passions. And for parents looking to entice kids off their devices, there are lighthouses to discover, wide open space for running wild, riverside towns like Dartmouth and Kingsbridge to visit, and land and water-based adventures galore.
