Buyers snapping up versatile lifestyle homes

Hillfield Village nestles in a pretty sheltered valley, close to the historic naval town of Dartmouth, renowned for its scenic situation at the mouth of the River Dart.

This picturesque port, famous for its long-established seafaring connections, is the perfect year-round destination. Offering numerous festivals, events and activities.  It even has its own microclimate.

This adds to the lifestyle appeal of the area and hasn’t gone unnoticed by astute property buyers. Purchasers are inspired by Hillfield Village as it offers a great diversity of product, plus an attractive live /work life balance.

A select number of bespoke homes are now available to purchase as main residences, holiday homes or rental properties.  

Kirsty Cook, Sales Manager for selling agent Marchand Petit commented: “Sales have recently taken off, with five sales agreed in the last month, as the homes fit buyers’ short and long-term goals. Owners appreciate the dog friendly policy.”

Hillfield offers a charming range of properties. 1 The Drive is an exceptional architect designed newly built detached house, finished to an inspiring specification.  A feature being the mono string staircase with solid wood treads raising to the first floor, asking price £745,000.

5 The Manor House, is an elegant two bedroom first floor apartment recently refurbished with sweeping countryside views and parking, asking price £275,000.

Kirsty concluded: “The investment opportunities at Hillfield have also been a strong selling point.  They appeal to holiday home owners who may want to let out in the future or now, which makes them adaptable and versatile to all age groups.”

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.

We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.

In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
