Open Event At Exmouth's Hidden Gem - 1st and 2nd August 2015

Often referred to as “Exmouth’s hidden gem” our delightful development is nearing conclusion. With only 5 homes remaining, one would need to hurry to secure the last homes.  We are holding a special open house event on 1st and 2nd August, providing refreshments and the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere. If you’ve not found the time to visit yet, please don’t miss out – you will not be disappointed.

Located just off of St. Johns Road, at the centre of this stunning development is Withycombe House. Built in the early 19th Century, this grand and substantial grade 2 listed residence with it’s substantial grounds is now known as “Hillcrest”.

After our meticulous restoration of this beautiful building, Withycombe House now comprises 3 luxurious, very spacious dwellings. No 5 is a first floor 2 bedroom spacious apartment with its own large southerly facing balcony overlooking the lovely woodland area and a variety of houses, plus 2 private parking spaces. No 2 is an amazing 3 bedroom manor house situated in one of the building’s wing’s with high ceilings and amazing internal features, plus Garage and Parking and a large parkland garden.  No 9 is an end terraced cottage offering 3 bedrooms, master en-suite, large kitchen/dining room and good sized living room with 2 private parking spaces.

The restoration of Withycombe House is the type of project in which we excel. We have extensive experience in refurbishing and remodelling listed buildings of historical significance whilst creating luxurious and spacious accommodation to meet modern needs.

Skilled craftsmen were able to make moulds for the pinnacles and gable ends, and our joiners have replicated the original windows of the original era, the replacements being hand-made in the company’s joinery works in Dorset. The restoration of the roof in natural slate completes this impressive building.

The interiors feature our premier specification which includes quality bathroom and kitchen fittings and floor and wall tiling from Porcelanosa.

Alongside Withycombe House, we  have constructed a number of traditionally designed new houses, finished with the attention to detail which has established the company’s reputation as a builder of high quality homes. The new houses, set in carefully planned streetscapes are constructed in stone, brick,  render and some cedar cladding, with slate and tiled roofs.

Both remaining cottages available have a high level of internal finishes, No 23 is a link-detached 3 bedroom corner turning cottage overlooking the woodland, with its lovely curved frontage this home benefits from a beautiful gloss finished kitchen with integral fridge-freezer, dishwasher, 5 ring gas hob and a chrome extractor chimney, with Garden, Garage and parking space. No 48 the fabulous stone fronted show home, has also a fully fitted kitchen with integral appliances and as befitting a show home, many more internal upgrades. The showhome also has the advantage of a double garage located at the side. Both of these incredible homes come with fully fitted high quality flooring with ceramic floor tiles to the kitchen/dining areas.
