Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An opportunity to purchase a freehold development site centrally located within the seaside town of Ilfracombe just off of the main high street and situated on a busy through route to the sea front and harbour.

The brownfield site is approximately 722sq m (0.18 acres) and was the location of the former Montebello Hotel which was destroyed by fire some 10 years ago. Whilst the site does not have an overly large footprint, there is considerable scope for a multi storey development of up to 7 floors giving huge potential floor area to any new building. From the upper floors of the building views can be enjoyed across the town towards the picturesque Harbour and Lantern Hill, Capstone, the Bristol Channel and distant Welsh Coast. Previously a scheme was tentatively drawn up for a new purpose built block of 40 flats to be erected on the site and it is considered that this could be one possible idea for the site pending consultation with the planning authority.

We have been consulting the Local Authority at North Devon District Council who are extremely keen to see this site developed and have agreed that they would look favourably upon any reasonable residential or commercial venture. Our clients are inviting offers for the site for an option agreement to purchase subject to planning consent being granted. The option period would initially be granted for 12 months with the possibility of a further six months depending on the planning application process.

All enquiries strictly through the Sole Selling Agents.
Applicants are advised to proceed from our offices in an easterly direction along the high street for approximately 250 yards. At the end of High Street branch off left into Fore Street and continue down the hill for approximately 100 yards where the site will be found on the right hand side.
