The North Devon new home market

The North Devon new home market

Simon Forman, associate partner and Barnstaple office manager, highlights the benefits of purchasing a new home and showcases some exciting properties that their office currently has to offer.

One of the most appealing aspects of buying a new home is the fact that it is just that, new. There is the opportunity to ‘stamp your mark’ and customise the interior to your taste whilst turning the ‘blank canvas’ garden into something which suits your needs. 

Brand new homes are often built with the latest design trends and modern amenities which can include open plan accommodation, smart home technology and eco-friendly aspects such as air/ground source heat pumps, solar panels and energy efficient windows. Not only do these amenities enhance comfort and convenience, but they can also lead to long term savings.

A new home should also offer minimal maintenance and repair work in the initial years and typically comes with a warranty covering structural elements, appliances and major systems, providing peace of mind.

At present, Stags are offering a diverse selection of new homes, whether you are looking for an individual property, a small select development, or bigger scheme. With prices in North Devon ranging from £250,000 for a 1-bedroom riverside flat in Barnstaple, to the choice of a number of completed 2-bedroom apartments at Tors Park, Lynmouth (pictured), in coastal Exmoor with stunning sea views, priced from £480,000 to £635,000.

If a new house is your preference, we could tempt you with a number of village homes, built and ready for occupation, priced between £650,000 to £795,000 [including Grenville House pictured], which is one of a pair of superb detached chalet residences, ready to inhabit, situated in the village of West Buckland, famous for the private school there.

New bungalows are a rare commodity and tend to achieve premium prices as a result. Victoria Lodge (pictured), is an exceptional 3/4-bedroom example, ready for occupation, located in a ‘village’ suburb of Barnstaple and priced to sell at £699,950.

If you are not quite ready to move, how about reserving a plot at Four Oaks Close, Landkey, near Barnstaple, where there are just three homes [two 4-bedroom bungalows, one already reserved, and one 3-bedroom chalet], due to be completed late spring/ early summer next year and ranging in price from £775,000 – £795,000.

If you are feeling more adventurous you could perhaps consider your own ‘grand design’, as we can also offer a choice of building plots and former agricultural buildings with consent to convert.

So, if you like the idea of Christmas 2023 in a new home, or are looking for a new start in the New Year, we can not only try accommodate you in North Devon but throughout the West Country.
