Full planning permission granted | Plot for large detached 3 bedroom dwelling | Approaching 1 acre of ground included | Stunning sea views | Rural coastal hamlet location | Potential to add value

Fleeting opportunity to purchase a single building plot for bespoke large 3 bedroom dwelling in sought-after coastal hamlet.

Full planning permission has been granted which enables the purchaser to commence with the reserved matters and begin work on the site. Outstanding sea views are afforded from the site which currently contains a useful storage barn, concrete hard standing and approaching an acre of accompanying ground.

An excellent self-build opportunity where purchasers can custom build their forever home or a developer look to add value in a prime location.

Planning permission was granted by Torridge District Council under cover of application number 1/0810/2022/FUL dated 18 April 2023. Permission has been granted for conversion of existing agricultural building to a domestic dwelling house.

A copy of the permission and associated drawing can be viewed on Torridge District Councils website at

The existing building is single storey, (4.8 metres in height, 2.6 metres to the eaves), and measures 23.7 metres in length and 7.6 metres in width.

There is a large concrete hard standing (previous silage clamp) surrounding the barn and an adjoining paddock with sea views towards Lundy Island.

A drainage mound is proposed to the west of the proposed building in the field, to the west, and approximately 30 metres from the boundary of the curtilage.
