Build a Devon country house by the sea

An opportunity has arisen to build a coastal property of some note in the South Hams in Devon. The Silvercloud site occupies a

stunning waterfront, cliff top location on the edge of the village of Stoke Fleming in a secluded and private position.

The site occupies a dramatic position with uninterrupted views on three sides: to the east is the Mew Stone marking the entrance to Dartmouth Harbour; to the south is the English Channel; and to the west are Blackpool Sands, Slapton Sands and Start Bay to Start Point.

There is planning consent for a 6,025 sq ft contemporary, elliptical waterfront home on the existing site at Silvercloud where a bungalow currently sits.

This will comprise a state-of-the-art, luxury home including an indoor swimming pool and five bedrooms. The site commands unrivalled, panoramic views out to sea and is protected to a great extent from sea erosion by a disused quarry below the property.
