Situation - The beautiful coastal hamlet of Battisborough Cross lies in glorious green countryside in the heart of the South Hams between Holbeton and Noss Mayo in an outstandingly beautiful 'plateau' only a mile from the mouth of the beautiful River Erme estuary.
Located on the southern edge of this quintessentially English hamlet with its pretty cottages and traditional red telephone box, the property lies on the coastal ridge with views spanning the English Channel and towards the mouth of Plymouth Sound in one direction over many miles of countryside in the other. The villages in this area offer many excellent opportunities including primary schools in Holbeton, Newton Ferrers, Yealmpton and Ermington.
A short distance from the property is Mothecombe, one of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches on the South coast, located at the mouth of the River Erme. Frequently used as a filming location for many films including International Velvet, Sense & Sensibility and Rebecca. Dogs are allowed on parts of the beach and there are pretty woodland walks overlooking the sea.
The yachtsman haven of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo is only about 10 minutes' drive away. The area is away from tourist routes and provides quick access via the A379 to both Plymouth City Centre and the A38.

Description - St Clements is a fascinating and highly unusual house constructed over two levels and standing in grounds amounting to 1.361 acres (0.551 ha). It has an Agricultural Occupancy Condition. The detached house was built in 1964. It adjoins open countryside, and enjoys far reaching views towards the crystal clear waters of Bigbury Bay.
St Clements offers extensive accommodation extending to around 2093 square feet over two levels. Today it is presented in good order yet offers much potential to improve.

Accommodation - Traditionally laid out, the ground floor hosts the balance of the reception accommodation including a large sitting room, dining room, conservatory and sun room, all enjoying views over the garden and beyond. The kitchen is a good size and there is a useful utility room as well as storage room with easy access to the garage from this area.
To the first floor there are three good sized bedrooms, one of which has en suite facilities and access to a sun room and balcony to take advantage of the views.

Gardens & Grounds - The 1.361 acres (0.551 ha) is loosely arranged as house and gardens which extends to around quarter of an acre and paddock with established borders which makes up the balance. Just outside the formal gardens are a number of loosely constructed outbuildings which today are utilised as tractor shed, workshop, green house and log store. The property occupies a largely level plot which is unusual for this region and there are also extensive parking facilities.
From the paddock the views improve and the peace and tranquillity from here are deeply impressive. A five bar gate allows vehicular access to the paddock from the quiet lane.

Agricultural Occupany Condition - The wording of the original planning permission reads "permission is granted subject to the following condition, the occupation of the house shall be limited to persons whose employment or latest employment is or was employment in agriculture, as defined by section 119 of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, and including also the dependants of such persons as aforesaid".
