Blackawton: A Hidden Gem
29 Apr 2019

Nestled in the South Hams is the picturesque village of Blackawton. This hidden gem is under nine miles from Totnes, Dartmouth and the stunning beaches of Blackpool Sands and Slapton Sands. It is also home to Linden Homes’ French Furze development in Blackawton.

The area has a huge amount to offer including a traditional pub, a popular primary school, a 15th century church, post office and local shop. Emma Colin, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes, said: “Blackawton has so much community spirit, you can’t help but fall in love with this pretty village as soon as you arrive – from yoga, choir and discos in the dark to the International Worm Charming Festival, which we support, it’s certainly a fun place to live.

“French Furze is perfectly situated and is worth a visit to fully appreciate the location’s charm and beauty, set within the rolling South Hams countryside and with some breath-taking beaches on your doorstep. Blackawton enables homebuyers to enjoy peaceful village life but with Totnes and Dartmouth close by.”

The development of 60 well-designed homes blends in with the surrounding area and complements the village with its use of natural stonework, textured coloured render and slate external finishes.

Emma added: “Linden Homes is giving homebuyers an opportunity to move to this special development in time for the summer – so do come along to our event on Saturday 18th May to find out more! Available on selected properties, we’re offering Part Exchange, plus Stamp Duty and legal fees paid on completions for the end of June.”

Linden Homes could buy your existing home and pay the estate agent fees, while you move to a new house at French Furze with peace of mind and no chain.

Emma said: “Whether you’d like to take advantage of our summer moving scheme, you need help a deposit, or would like to know more about our furniture packages or Help to Buy scheme, visit us and we can tailor a package that works for you.”

The show home and marketing suite are open daily from 10am to 5pm and there’s late night opening on Thursdays from 12pm to 7pm, off Main Street, Blackawton, Devon, TQ9 7BL, call 01803 701140.
