Salcombe gets green light!

North Sands Developments are delighted to announce that they have received planning permission on their latest project, two stunning contemporary detached homes situated in the beautiful and sought-after Devon town of Salcombe.

The two striking buildings, each providing 2500 sq ft of accommodation, will be fitted with all the usual North Sands refinements and have been designed to the company’s normal exacting architectural standards. The homes will be built in the desirable south west area of the town, which means they will have breathtaking views of the Salcombe estuary along with large secluded terraces to enjoy Salcombe life to the full. And with all the restaurants, bars, leisure and, of course, sailing, that the town is famous for, these two new additions have plenty to offer.

Building is due to get underway in early 2016 and once they are completed they will be a striking new addition the town’s architecture. The design for the homes has been masterminded by Michael Stopher of Stopher Design in Kingsbridge, whose homes are already a defining feature of the Salcombe coastline. “North Sands presented us with a tricky brief for this job, and having worked closely with them before, we knew that we would have to come up with something special,” said Michael. “The solution not only looks stunning but will provide exceptional accommodation not just from the amazing views but the internal flow of the rooms and the exciting finishes we have specified. We’re all really excited about seeing the project come to fruition.”

Harriet Cundy, Director of Marchand Petit Estate Agents, has been closely involved with the concept of the project, and sees them as a natural fit to the Salcombe market. "We are delighted to be working once again with North Sands Developments; it is always rewarding to be involved from the inception of a scheme through to finding the end user,” she commented. “Our areas of expertise work well together and, from previous developments, we know the high specification and attention to detail along with the views and accommodation will not disappoint the discerning buyer".

The two homes are the latest work of North Sands, who now have an impressive portfolio of projects in Salcombe, and have a proven track record of producing truly eye-catching homes built and fitted out to the very highest possible standards. “We listen very carefully to what people want, and in the Salcombe market what comes back to us is quality, quality, quality, which is why everything we do there is produced to an A1 specification,” said Richard Maling, Director of North Sands. “The feedback we have had for all of our projects in Salcombe is that customers really appreciate the fact that we always go that extra mile to make sure we produce homes that are stunning, flowing living spaces.”
