We have all dealt with the challenges of this year in different ways.

For some, escapism has been key to keeping positive during dark hours.

With a new year on the horizon, we thought we would share some of the most beautiful, and expensive, properties currently on the market in Devon – who doesn’t love a bit of window shopping?

Think private cinemas, marble staircases and extravagant gardens.

Perhaps 2021 will be the year you hit the jackpot.

Aveton Gifford, Kingsbridge – £1,000,000



Aveton Gifford, Kingsbridge

How have you been getting on with your DIY projects this year? Well if you are sick of wallpapering the living room, why not give yourself a break and take a look at this incredible property on the market for exactly £1m.

This exquisite Georgian home has been stylishly restored and renovated – and if you are a fan of Mrs Hinch then this is the home for you.

The current owners have extensively updated this former farmhouse, restoring period detailing and created a stylish and impressive home so all you need to do is move your stuff in.

Of course, this four-bedroom house also boasts beautiful outdoor spaces, parking for several cars and comes with planning permission for a timber-framed garage with studio above.

Higher Bowcombe Farm, Ugborough – £1,750,000



Higher Bowcombe Farm, Ugborough

Have you started working from home this year and noticed that your office (spare room/living room/child’s bedroom) could do with an update? Well, I think I have found the place for you.

This Grade II Listed six-bedroom country house is set within 22 acres of private land and is arranged across three floors.

The property benefits from five stone barns that could be developed further as well as a large detached workshop with business offices – so you can work from home in peace.

And forget queuing to use the bathroom in the mornings, this beautiful home has three stunning bathrooms.

Higher Bowcombe Farm offers 22 acres of land which includes a children’s play area with soft surround and sunny decked terrace – that should keep the kids happy.

St Marks Road, Meadfoot, Torquay – £1,775,000



St Marks Road, Meadfoot, Torquay

Remember when I mentioned that one of these properties would include a private cinema?

Situated on the fringes of the scenic South West Coastal Path with access to Meadfoot Beach this stunning home is the stuff of dreams.

The lower level of this property is what really caught my eye, boasting a large Games room with cosy new wood-burner, Cinema Room with projector screen and surround sound speaker system, Gymnasium with foam padded flooring and mirrors, Music Room, Cloakroom and Workshop/Store.

This seven-bedroom property also has gorgeous views across Torquay that is quite simply breathtaking.

And don’t worry about the post-pandemic reunion – this property offers an adjacent, detached four-bedroom coach house that will surely be enough to house your family and friends.

Bennett Road, Salcombe -£1,800,000



Bennett Road, Salcombe

Perhaps you have always dreamed of living in a modern apartment – so that you can pretend you are the ultra-stylish main character in some Hollywood film.

Well if so, this is the home for you.

The three-bed property offers incredible 180-degree views over Salcombe’s estuary.

This incredible apartment also features a large sun terrace – I can only imagine what it would be like to sit out on the terrace with a cocktail on a hot July afternoon.

This apartment also benefits from a study/snug which would be ideal for all you home workers.

Chineway Farm, Sidbury – £3,500,000



Chineway Farm, Sidbury

The most expensive property on our list today will not disappoint.

Have you ever wandered around a country estate on a bank holiday afternoon and imagined what it would be like to live there?

Chineway Farm is a luxurious 5 bedroom Country House with beautifully landscaped gardens that look like something out of a period drama – think Downton Abbey.

The 20th-century property benefits from all the advantages of a contemporary home but has the features and symmetry of classic Palladian architecture.

And imagine taking a stroll around the 40 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens which are in keeping with the style of the house.

Some of the stand out features of his home for me are the cantilevered marble staircase, large triple aspect library and the additional a two-bedroom studio and one-bedroom pavilion which are also included.
