Property description

SITUATION Staddon Heights is situated East of Plymouth, overlooking this historic naval city. If sailing is your scene, Mountbatten offers an incredible marina with on and offshore boat storage, not to mention fantastic beer battered fish and chips at The Bridge.

Not boatie but love the water? Hop on the Cremyll Ferry from Royal William Yard over to Mount Edgcumbe for an idyllic dog walk, or for those keen to explore more of the South West Coastal Path, take the Cawsand Ferry and walk a longer loop, stopping for a delicious crab sandwich at the Devonport Inn.

For adventurers, head to Bovisand and launch your paddle boards for a dawn SUP out to Drake's Island, or if it's a day further afield with little ones Mothecombe beach is brilliant for rock pooling fun, followed by fire pit Fridays at The Schoolhouse. Whatever you do, don't miss out on a Surfing Cow en route home. Many of the locals have grown up surfing and snorkelling at Bigbury, Bantham and Thurlestone beaches. You really are spoilt for choice with the Tamar Bridge offering a gateway to Cornwall for further exploration as well.

Enjoy a round of golf and some extremely familiar views next door at Staddon Heights Golf Club, or for a more chilled out day, take a flask up onto Dartmoor, stroll around Burrator and take in the rugged moorland views. Tavistock is a must for a decent coffee and exploring the shops, the pannier market is not to be missed! Or uncover hidden antique gems in Ashburton, then head to Totnes for lunch and local fodder at Rumour.  

SITE SPECIFICATION The Heights is a unique development in that the site itself was, until recently, a working farm on the outskirts of Plymouth, overlooking the sea. Thus, each property benefits from at least an acre of land, as well as a rural setting, contemporary agricultural architecture and incredible views in all directions. There are 6 properties in total: the first phase of 3 is already sold. The final phase of 3 properties is now advertised for sale.

The developer has designed a mile long footpath around the farm which is solely for the use of the 6 properties at The Heights. The path skirts the Napoleonic fort and runs through two banks of woodland offering panoramic views across the sound, out to Dartmoor and over Plymouth.

It is perfect for an early morning dog walk and leads to a shared outdoor dining area with fire pits and also links out to Staddon Heights Golf Course and the South West Coast Path beyond. There is certainly a feeling of being surrounded by nature and an abundance of space throughout the development. This undoubtedly comes from the countryside location, expanse of skyline and breath-taking views. As well as owning your own acres of private land, you will also feel as though you have a 30 acre farm without all the work!

In addition to the land that comes privately with each dwelling there is the opportunity to purchase further land should the purchasers desire. The access to The Heights and communal areas will be managed by a management company owned by the 6 residents of The Heights. It will be designed to be as light a touch as possible with annual fees set by the residents but estimated to be circa £800 a year to cover maintenance and insurance costs. The management company will also maintain the communal walking path.  

ACCOMMODATION 'Sea Air' Price £1,350,000

'Sea Air' has been designed for architectural excellence, making the most of the incredible sea views from both the upper south facing balcony and the master bedroom with additional floor to ceiling dormer window. Light travels through every inch of this home, with the south elevation entirely glaze faced, and double height ceiling adjoining the two open plan living areas.

Set within 3 acres, the grand glazed front entrance leads you into a spacious hallway and open plan kitchen dining area, complete with luxury fully integrated appliances and a feature island. A wonderful space to entertain when the bi-folds are flung open onto the private terrace inviting the outside in. The house hosts 5 bedrooms, including the master bedroom complete with spectacular view, en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. A double garage to the rear of the property gives secure and private space for 2 cars as well as secure external storage.

This house provides the optimal lifestyle of both rural and coastal living, taking in the incredible views at every angle. We are also able to offer additional land by separate negotiation.
