BUILDING PLOTS IN HIGHLY DESIRABLE LOCATION! A one acre site with full planning permission for two new dwellings in a highly coveted coastal village. Location - The site is in a wonderful position on the outskirts of the highly sought after village of Georgeham, within walking distance of the superb range of amenities and within easy reach of the world renowned sandy surfing beaches at Croyde, Putsborough, Saunton and Woolacombe. The village of Georgeham has an excellent community and boasts an array of amenities including a church, highly regarded primary school, general store, village hall and two popular public houses. The spectacular North Devon coastline, which was selected in April 2022 as a ''World Surfing Reserve' (WSR) - the first in the UK and only cold-water WSR in the world, is within easy reach with the well-known sandy surfing beaches at Putsborough (2 miles) and Croyde (2.5 miles) nearby. There is also an abundance of coastal walks with spectacular vistas available on the South West Coastal Footpath. The village of Braunton is located around 2.2 miles away and offers a wider range of amenities including secondary schooling, numerous shops, restaurants, pubs and bars as well as a supermarket. The regional centre of Barnstaple is around 8 miles away, and offers all the area's main business, shopping, commercial and leisure venues. Communications - The area can be accessed from Junction 27 of the M5 Motorway, and along the A361 North Devon Link Road which leads onto the A39 Atlantic Highway. The nearest train station is at Barnstaple, which connect to Exeter, where there are regular mainline rail services to London Paddington in just over 2 hours. Alternatively, Tiverton Parkway Mainline Railway Station is around a 70-minute drive away, which connects to London and beyond. Mileages Georgeham Village - Within walking distance Putsborough - 2 miles Croyde - 2.5 miles Braunton - 2.2 miles Barnstaple - 8 miles M5 Motorway - 45 miles The Plots - This is an extremely rare chance to purchase a one acre building site on the edge of the popular coastal village of Georgeham, backing onto open fields. The site has planning permission for the erection of two four bedroom detached houses. The planning permission number is 72958 on the North Devon District Council planning portal. Application number 76641 discharges condition 4 of application 72958. Further details can be obtained on the planning portal, or can be emailed upon request from the sole selling agents. The building land lies to the east and southern boundaries of the property known as "Mandalay" (which is available to purchase separately, or as a whole together with the plot). The parcel of land benefits from a separate vehicular access, which allows for the two proposed dwellings to have a private independent access. Opportunities such as this very seldom become available to the open market, and the agents have no hesitation in strongly recommending further investigation. Agent's Note: 1) The property is available in three lots: Lot 1 - The house and gardens - Guide £1,250,000 Lot 2 - The building land - Excess £850,000 Lot 3 - The whole - Excess £2,000,000 2) The current septic tank drainage system for Mandalay is situated on the grounds of the building plots. If the house and building plots are to be sold separately, the new owners of Mandalay will be required to move the septic tank drainage system to within their own grounds. This will need to be carried out within a specified period of time, to be agreed by solicitors. The current owners have had a quote from a local contractor that would indicate the cost of this to be in the region of £20,000-£25,000. 3) The vendors will only sell the building land to a separate buyer if the purchaser of the main house does not wish to purchase as a whole. The exchange of contracts on both will need to happen simultaneously, even in the event of them being sold to separate purchasers. Property Information Services - Mains electricity and water. Oil fired central heating. Private drainage. Local Authority - North Devon District Council - 01271 327711.
