An exciting and unique opportunity to create your dream home on an individual building plot in this wonderful village within the highly coveted South Hams.
The site measures approximately 0.04 ha/0.10 acres and is a level plot enjoying a lovely south facing aspect and benefits from full planning permission to construct a brand new detached home.
The approved design is for a 4 bedroom detached house extending to approx 115sqm/1238 sqft with two car parking spaces. Planning has been approved for a traditional design but, subject to planning approval, there are a number of exciting options to create a more contemporary design. These could offer reverse level living with an open entertaining space and balconies to embrace the breathtaking views towards Salcombe (please see pages 3&4 for reference).
The contemporary design provides a kitchen/dining room, living room, four bedrooms and two bathrooms and wonderful far reaching views of the surrounding countryside from the first floor. The purchase of this plot would enable the purchaser to undertake a design led project with bespoke finishes, a rare opportunity in the South Hams to create your own dream Grand Designs home in this stunning location. A similar high end architect designed property located in very close proximity to the plot has just been completed and is under offer to a discerning buyer.
In addition, there is permission for two onsite parking spaces and the house design allows for private rear and side gardens which are level and afford wonderful views of the 14th century church and across the beautiful countryside. Main services are within a short distance and could be easily connected.
As experienced local agents we can guide you on the completed project value. The house would make a wonderful residential property or, with no restrictions, a second home/holiday let. As Charles Head has a holiday lettings business under its jurisdiction we would we able to supply accurate holiday let figures and income.
