Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An exciting development opportunity to build a stunning detached waterfront house with its own mooring on the banks of the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary.


We are delighted to be offering for sale a unique development opportunity situated in a stunning setting on the banks of the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary. With an outstanding design created by award-winning architect Stan Bolt, the plot benefits from detailed planning consent for a substantial detached, contemporary home offering waterside living at its best. Occupying one of the most beautiful south facing locations at the mouth of Bowcombe Creek, the site benefits from spectacular uninterrupted water views and benefits from direct water access with a running mooring. The proposed dwelling will offer generous ground floor living accommodation with a double height, open plan dining room and living room opening onto a partly covered outdoor terrace with a fire pit area, perfect for al fresco entertaining and making the most of the exquisite south facing views. There is a spacious kitchen / breakfast room with walk in larder/pantry and utility/wet room with cloakroom. Further reception rooms include a snug, games room, cinema and bar area. Also on the ground floor are two double en suite bedrooms with private access to the outside terracing and gardens. The first floor accommodation includes a principal suite with en suite bathroom, dressing room, south facing balcony and adjoining office as well as a further two double en suite bedrooms, one with a private balcony. Gorgeous water views are enjoyed from all the principal rooms.

The proposed landscaping will include waterside gardens extending to the banks of the estuary, terracing on which to enjoy al fresco dining and balconies at first floor level from which to enjoy the far reaching water and countryside views. Outbuildings will include garaging and a car port, a log store and a wet store, as well as an external shower. There is a private running mooring accessible directly from the garden (as with all moored vessels, a Salcombe Harbour Authority license will have to be purchased).

For full details and drawings please visit where documents confirm on 20th April 2016, permission was granted for the 'Amendments and revisions to the previous planning approval 28/1630/15/F for the erection of two new dwellings and associated garage and landscaping on the site of a previously demolished dwelling'. One of the two permitted dwellings has since been developed and we are now delighted to be offering the opportunity to build your own home in a sensational waterfront setting on the remaining 'lion's share' of the site.


Situated on the edge of the thriving town centre of Kingsbridge, Widegates occupies a superb setting on the banks of the stunning Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary. The location is extremely convenient with the ability to walk to all the towns' amenities including a wide range of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. There is also a cinema, a leisure centre, a medical centre and two supermarkets. The town boasts the excellent and highly respected secondary school KCC (Kingsbridge Community College), which has been rated as outstanding by Ofsted. The South Hams offers an abundance of sandy beaches and coastal and countryside walks and the popular sailing towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe are within distance both by road and by water. The popular market town of Totnes with mainline railway link to London is approximately 12 miles and the A38 with access to the M5 is approximately 9 miles.
