Rural countryside views to take centre stage at new development

An exclusive residential development in the picturesque South Hams village of Chillington, by independent property developer, Acorn Property Group, will see its official launch take place this Summer.

Located just off Green Park Way, the first phase will offer a contemporary collection of seventeen three- to four-bedroom houses, nestled in the serene landscape of the Devon countryside and will boast uninterrupted views of its rural rolling hills.

With construction already underway, the homes are being built to a high-quality specification, sympathetically designed to fit within the scenic rural landscape that surrounds this development.

Energy-efficiency measures planned for the houses will provide an EPC Rating of A, the most efficient level within the energy rating system. Modern green initiatives planned for every house will include air source heat pumps to generate heating and hot water, high performance triple glazed windows to prevent heating loss, integrated solar panels, underfloor heating to ground floor and all homes prewired for EV charging. 

Enhanced biodiversity is also in the plans, with the creation of special ecological corridors – these include external lighting designed to minimise light pollution to ensure that existing bat foraging routes remain dark.

In addition to rolling countryside views, the development will also provide the best in coastal living with Torcross and Salcombe just a short distance away. The bustling estuary town of Kingsbridge, known for its local schools, markets, cafés and restaurants, is just 5 miles away and attractions such as the Slapton Ley Nature Reserve and Dartmoor National Park are right on the doorstep.

Commenting on the new development, Ed Lewis, Regional Managing Director Acorn’s Exeter region, said: “We are delighted to be able to develop this new collection of bespoke houses in the idyllic village of Chillington.

“Our plan is to deliver stylish modern homes for those looking to access coastal and rural living. Every house is designed to be low-maintenance and will benefit from a number of energy-efficiency measures including modern heating systems that generate heat through renewable sources.

The development is also conveniently located to local amenities, including local shops and cafes, with beautiful coastline and the outstanding scenic views of Devon’s rural rolling hills right on the doorstep – offering the best of both worlds. “
