Full Details

Situated in an idyllic sheltered valley between the Avon Valley, Loddiswell and market town of Kingsbridge, Higher Leigh House stands in beautifully planted gardens extending to approximately 1.25 acres.

The house is just two miles from Kingsbridge which offers extensive shopping and facilities including a health centre, small hospital, sports centre and the highly regarded Kingsbridge Community College.

There are numerous sandy beaches within easy reach with Bantham, which is popular for surfing, being the closest. There are wonderful walks in all directions and golf courses at Bigbury, Thurlestone and Dartmouth. In addition the property is easily accessible to both the A379 and A381 which serve Plymouth and Totnes. The nearest private schools are Stover and Plymouth College and both provide a daily bus service from the area. Blundells in Tiverton is also a popular choice for many local families.

Nestled in the peaceful South Hams countryside, Higher Leigh enjoys breathtaking views over rolling Devon fields and offers excellent flexible family accommodation.

The current owner has sympathetically extended the house creating an impressive entrance with glazed roof light and a guest bedroom / study with wet room adjacent. The generous living accommodation on the ground floor has been designed to take full advantage of the gardens and wonderful countryside views with all the principal rooms opening directly to the decking or patio that wrap around the house with gently sloping lawns beyond.

On the first floor is a spacious main bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom with separate shower. There are 3 further double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite and the other two are served by a family bathroom.

The gardens are a real feature; beautifully planted with shrubs and specimen trees. There is a vegetable garden, greenhouse and pond. Within the garden is a timber garden chalet with was granted consent in February 2017 for an ancillary "MODBOX" unit. Planning has now lapsed however more information is available on request.

At the front of the property is parking for several cars and at the bottom of the garden is a driveway which provides significant parking and a large detached garage / workshop and storage shed.

Higher Leigh is a rare opportunity to acquire a special family home and viewing is highly recommended.


Mains water and electricity, private drainage. Oil fired central heating. Solar panels and a stove back burner feed into a heat bank.
