Full description

Approximately 5.12 acres in beautiful Tamar Valley. Old building and previous (1966/1976) consent for caravan. Mains electric on site and natural water supply. Private location overlooking Tamar Valley. Variety of trees, small orchard and half acre woodland. Track access to a very private setting. Sale subject to a 25%/20 year uplift clause.

A track off a quiet lane leads to the very secluded site with views over the wooded Tamar Valley across to Devon. Whilst there are just a handful of properties in the immediate vicinity the village of Gunnislake is only roughly a mile away having post office, shops, public house, garage, etc. and on the outskirts of the village there is the Gunnislake Station with a regular train service to Plymouth also a nearby garage with mini-market and adjacent chip shop. The Tamar Valley area around Gunnislake is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which comprises some 75 square miles and contains within it Area 10 of the World Heritage Site for the Cornwall and West Devon mining landscape.

The land is approached by a track off Bakers Lane having immediately off to the left of the lane an area of woodland of approximately 0.5 acres with the track continuing to the main area which is in the main two fields, the first field having a track lying across it to an old timber and CGI Building which contains a chimney. Just beyond this building is the main field which is just over 2.25 acres and contains various small trees including Oak and some Apple trees. A stream forms the southern boundary of the main area of land and one section contains the base where a former caravan was sited and a Building which previously formed W.C. facilities.

Mr. R. Rowe lived on the site in both the outbuilding and a caravan and there were planning approvals given for a caravan between 1966 and 1976. The following information was taken from the Council Rate Records for R. Rowe, Sunny Corner, Gunnislake:- the land in the past has been used from time to time to graze sheep, horses and cattle.

Mains electricity is connected on site. Natural water from the stream on the southern boundary. The vendor believes that there used to be a septic tank on site, although the position is unknown and unconfirmed, although previous Council records showed sewage and water rates of £5.60 for this site.

The land will be sold subject to an Uplift Clause/Overage Agreement. An Overage payment equivalent of 25% of any increase in value of the land as a result of planning permission being granted for residential or commercial development and will become payable on the exercise of such planning permission or sale of land with the benefit of such planning permission. The Agreement will be for a term of 20 years from completion of the present sale.
