BOASTING more than a room with a view, new homes in Ilfracombe enjoy an idyllic location that enables residents to choose their pace of life.

Elan Homes is making good progress with its Seascape development, taking shape on land off The Shields.

As the name of the development suggests, there’s potential for stunning views of the coast with homes designed to make the most of the vista.

The combination of the location and the ease of living that a new build home offers is attracting keen interest.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball said: “The elevated position of our homes means residents can enjoy ever-changing views over the town, towards the countryside and out to the coast. Because the homes are being built within an established residential area there are all the amenities people want and need nearby including schools and a supermarket, plus the high street is less than half a mile away and is home to a range of independent retailers.

“With Ilfracombe Harbour, Tunnels Beaches, Cheyne Beach and Rapparee Cove, all of less than a mile away, there’s the chance to make the most of living by the coast.  Rapparee Cove and the more remote White Pebble Beach rank among the best wild water swimming spots in North Devon, plus there are plenty of opportunities to take up water sports or sailing. Along with coastal walks, there are lots of green open spaces to explore, plus Exmoor National Park is within easy reach. There are also lots of tearooms and fish and chip shops for when the fresh coastal area makes you feel peckish.”

Current availability at Seascape included the two-bedroom Atherington and three-bedroom Buckland, with prices from £325,000 and £379,995 respectively.

Elan’s homes achieve a minimum Energy Performance Certificate rating of B, making them cheaper to run than most older properties. This also means they’re eligible for green mortgages from selected lenders.

“The advantage of buying a new home, over an older property is that you won’t inherit the style of a previous owner or their DIY disasters,” Tracey added.

“Instead of having to budget for repairs and renovations, subject to build stage you’ll be able to select from a range of options to make your home your own before moving in. There’s also the potential to save on energy bills as our new homes are highly energy efficient, with modern heating systems and integrated appliances. With no costly repairs and renovations required you can spend time and money doing what you really love.”
