Property description

The site

This is a very attractive greenfield residential development site set on the south-eastern edge of Kingskerswell and extending to some 1.35 hectares (3.34 acres). The site comprises of a field adjacent to the existing built-up area and is bounded by existing dwellings on Caroline Close and Mount Pleasant Road, but is separated from these by a mixture of mature hedges and trees. The site slopes north to south and is generally elevated above the adjacent dwellings and this will offer views to the south west over the local area and countryside beyond.

The site is allocated for residential development in the Teignbridge Local Plan under policy KK2 and outline planning consent was approved in 2018. Subsequently, a reserved matters application (ref. 20/00285/maj) was approved in 2021 for the development of 27 dwellings, 21% of which are to be affordable (6 dwellings) and 1 is to be a self-build plot. Access to the site is to be provided via the recent and adjoining Kings Field development which in turn provides access onto Charles Road, with easy links to the major road network and the A380.

A further section of land to the east of the development will be sold with the site. Interested parties may also wish to note that a further land area, to the north of the proposed development site may also be available by separate negotiation. Please contact the Agents for further information in this regard.


Set in an elevated position in the heart of the South Devon countryside on the rural edge of Kingskerswell, this site is located between the English Riviera and the market town of Newton Abbot. The views on offer from the site are outstanding, taking in the surrounding area with Dartmoor National Park in the distance.

The A380 is easily accessed from the site, providing excellent communication links to Exeter and the M5 Motorway network beyond. There is a mainline railway station at Newton Abbot providing access to London Paddington. Kingskerswell itself offers a range of amenities including primary school, health centre and pharmacy, Co-op, post office, hair salons and public houses. There are a number of excellent state and private schools within reach including Torbay's two well-regarded Grammar schools. There are also many fine golf courses in the area, and not forgetting some of the best sailing waters in the country.


Teignbridge District Council granted outline planning permission (ref. 16/01961/maj) on the 2nd August 2018. A subsequent reserved matters application (ref. 20/00285/maj) was approved on 22nd January 2021 approving details for the development of 27 dwellings.


A full pack of technical information including copies of the planning permission, S106 agreement, planning documentation, and other reports is available from the agents on request.
