NHBC Awards South West

Reaching new heights in housing

Salcombe Heights- NHBC Awards 2013

With rolling green hills and epic views over the quaint Salcombe town centre and estuary, Salcombe Heights is perhaps one of the South West’s most desirable housing destinations. 

The multimillion pound development has been under construction for just over two years and when complete it will be the perfect place from which to enjoy Devon’s natural beauty.

Valued at just over one million pounds each, the 13 properties are a mixture of four and five bedroom detached homes, all with garages and gardens.

Salcombe Heights manages to strike the perfect balance between a modern abode and a rural retreat, as John explains, “The houses are quite modern, zinc roofs, big windows and lots of glass, but there is also a lot of stonework and in keeping with the countryside there has been quite a lot of tree planting and there are a lot of native flowers and grasses.”

Internally the homes are spacious and have big kitchen dining areas and large lounges, all fitted to a high end specification.

Previously the site was untouched countryside and John described his amazement at the site’s transformation over the last few years. He said: “When we first moved onto the site it was just an old field, we have had a road cut through and all services and drains have been fitted. We have got pictures in the office of what it was and what it is becoming, it’s amazing.”

Kingsman Construction has been rewarded for their work on site with an NHBC Pride in the Job Award, the development has been recognised for its organisation, management and well disciplined approach.

Site Manager John Board was clearly very happy with the award, he said: “We have never entered anything like this before; we were told by the NHBC representative in the South West that this was one of the best sites he had seen and needed to be recognised. That was really nice and it reflects the quality of the team we have got working here.”

A subsidiary of the Acorn Property Group, developer Acorn Blue is supporting the rediscovery of some of the country’s favourite beachside resorts through outstanding new architecture and sensitive conversions.
