Development site - Ref 7471

Accommodation Detail

  • Freehold

The houses are situated at the end of a private driveway which accesses several dwellings and over which they enjoy full rights of access. The two houses are the ‘mirror-image’ of each other with one benefitting from a larger ‘dog-leg’ plot.

The houses offer a contemporary design planned to take full advantage of the open southerly views and they feature air- source heat technology to create highly energy-efficient homes with under floor heating. A rain water harvesting system will serve the toilets, washing machine, and outside taps.

The accommodation will be arranged to a reverse-level design with spacious and bright living space including a large balcony off the living room itself. A good-sized kitchen, a study/4th bedroom, and a separate WC complete the upper floor accommodation which, owing to the gently sloping nature of the site, is accessed directly from the drive.

The lower floor will feature a master bedroom suite, two guest bedrooms, a bathroom, and a utility room.

Outside, there will be parking and the planning currently shows two attached single garages. There is potential for additional garaging (subject to an additional planning consent being granted). Both houses have large rear gardens with views and which back on to open farmland.

Rockbeare is just 7 miles from Exeter city centre. The location is convenient for the airport, M5 motorway, and there is a railway station (London Waterloo line) in nearby Cranbrook.

An open space payment of £11,025.58

Mains water, drainage, and electricity are connected to the site.


Planning permission 11/1035/FUL was granted on 8 May 2012 for the construction of 4 dwellings with garages and parking. In the event, our client has decided to build only two and retain the family bungalow which was previously scheduled for replacement.

Plans and drawings are available on request from the agents
