The Houses

  The Manor House - House area: 818m²  Plot area: 1473m²

The finest of architect Seeliger's Victorian and Edwardian influences have been retained in Urban Space's dramatic yet sympathetic remodelling of the expansive Hoogeind Manor House into a luxury home which takes full advantage of the generous proportions of yesteryear's building, but is, in every aspect, a contemporary interpretation.

  Ashburton - House area: 394m²  Plot area: 503m²

Ashburton lies in the heart of the South Devon countryside on the southern slopes of Dartmoor. This ancient town, which dates from Saxon times, has grown along the banks of the River Ashburn and its tributary, the Balland Stream. Ashburton's nearest tor on Dartmoor is Buckland Beacon. From this high point there is a magnificent panorama of deep and wooded valleys, with the River Dart winding away towards Dartmeet and the wild moorland hills beyond.

  Axminster - House area: 395m²  Plot area: 503m²

The town, built on a hill overlooking the River Axe, dates back to Celtic times of around 300 BC. It lies on two major Roman roads; the Fosse Way from Lincoln to Seaton, and the Dorchester-Exeter road. There was a Roman fort on the crossroads at Woodbury Farm, just south of the present town. Axminster was recorded in the late 9th century as Ascanmynster and in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Aixeministra.

  Lynton - House area: 574m²  Plot area: 1075m²

The battle of Edgehill in 1642 was the first major battle of the English Civil War. During this period Broughton Castle, seven miles away, was a Parliamentarian stronghold with Sir William Fiennes at the helm leading the activism against King Charles the First. After the battle of Edgehill, Broughton Castle was besieged and eventually overrun by the Royalists.

  Dartmouth - House area: 425m²  Plot area: 538m²

Dartmouth is built in the valley of the picturesque River Dart. The main artery of Dartmouth was always the river rather than the road. In fact there has never been a main road down into the town. This has helped to retain the historic atmosphere of the narrow streets and old buildings. Dartmouth's oldest building, the Cherub Pub, was built around 1380 in Higher Street.

  Ambleside - House area: 352m²  Plot area: 577m²

  Brixham - House area: 352m²  Plot area: 514m²

Brixham is a picturesque fishing town built upon a limestone outcrop at the southern end of the Torbay crescent of coastline. The town was built around the busy harbour and a fine array of colour-washed houses line the narrow streets leading from this area. The presence of replica of Sir Francis Drake's ship, the Gold Hind, emphases Brixham's seafaring links - Drake is known to have visited Brixham in 1588.

  Honiton - House area: 353m²  Plot area: 530m²

The South-East Devon market town of Honiton has long been famous for lace, pottery and glove making. For hundreds of years, lace making was the main industry of the town. Women would sit outside their homes to weave highly complicated and delicate pieces in the bright sunlight. Lace making was a labour intensive craft, as to make even the smallest piece required a high degree of skill and precision.

  Tavistock - House area: 352m²  Plot area: 546m²

Tavistock is an attractive town owing as much to some fine Victorian architecture as to its picturesque location on the banks of the river Tavy. It was an establishment of a Benedictine Abbey on the banks of the river Tavy that put Tavistock on the map. Ordgar, Earl of Devon began building the abbey in about 960 near the site of a Saxon settlement - this is where the town gets its name - Tavi from the river (originally Tau Vechan) and stock from stoc meaning stockade or enclosure.
