Devon Coastal Property
With two beautiful coastlines, buyers are often attracted to the county in search of the perfect Devon coastal property.
The northern coastline is well known for its surfing hotspots and foodie locations whilst the southern coast of Devon is famed for its pretty scenery and sailing hotspots. Whichever side of the county has your attention there are many beautiful coastal homes.
In the most desirable locations, coastal property rarely becomes available to buy on the open market. Homes will often change ownership descretely meaning you have to be ‘in the know’ to gain access such exclusive opportunities.
As reputable and well-connected buying agents, Garrington ensures their clients have access to the whole market including properties that are not advertised openly for sale.
