Discover the wonders of Lee Bay

December 13, 2023

Two coastlines – one wild, one calm – two National Parks – one dramatic, vast and wild, one green, tranquil and soft. Granite-topped peaks, turquoise bays and soft, sandy beaches. Dolphins can be found frolicking around its shores while salmon and trout also swim in pristine rivers and butterflies float through wildflower meadows. This is Devon.

In the choppy north shores, you’ll find Lee Bay, Ilfracombe – a secluded beach regarded by many as the ‘jewel in the crown of Lee.’ The picturesque village of Lee enjoys a maritime climate offers some stunning local walks. During the flowering season many of the village hedgerows are ablaze with the scarlet flowers causing Lee to be locally referred to as ‘Fuchsia Valley.’ Surfing aficionados in the area will also enjoy being close to Saunton Sands and Croyde.

The Lee Bay development will see the creation of sixteen unique 1-3 bedroom apartments and duplexes along with four 4 bedroom new build detached two-storey and single storey houses. In addition, we have also gifted an area of the land to the National Trust who will create a new café and beach carpark.

Our team have designed the scheme around a desirable outdoor lifestyle with large, airy open plan living areas with plenty of natural light. The apartments ensure the character of the historic Arts and Crafts building is retained where possible. In contrast the new build houses are contemporary and bespoke in nature, designed to make the best use of the views to the sea down the valley and reflect the character and nature of the conservation area they sit in.
