Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An opportunity arises to purchase a significant parcel of good quality land comprising 26 acres situated at Willingcott on the very outskirts of the sought after coastal surfing village of Woolacombe. The land has been more recently used as part of the Willingcott Valley Golf Course and is now available to purchase for agricultural purposes.

The land is sandwiched between Trimstone Lane and Bradwell Road and enclosed on all sides by mature banks and hedging. There are road access points on both the northern (Trimstone Lane) and southern (Bradwell Road) boundaries.

A covenant will be made against the land to ensure the use is kept for agricultural purposes (further details to follow).

The land is considered ideal for those with horses or other small animals for grazing and it is likely that small agricultural outbuildings or stables could be erected subject to consent from the Local Planning Authority at North Devon District Council.

The grounds are to be offered for sale for the entire 26 acres (Lot 1) at £160,000. If Lot 1 isn't sold in its entirety the land can be split in to two smaller lots of approximately 13 acres (Lots 2 & 3) divided equally with a new boundary being formed through the centre of the land from east to west. The boundary will need to be accurately measured and a suitable division be erected at the shared expense of the two buyers. Each smaller plot is being offered at £80,000.

Large parcels of land such as this seldom come to the market and we anticipate plenty of interest.
Applicants are advised to proceed from our offices in a westerly direction along the High Street heading out of town on the main A361 sign posted Barnstaple. At Mullacott Cross roundabout take the right hand exit sign posted Woolacombe and Mortehoe and follow along this road for just over 1 mile. At Turnpike Cross bear off left sign posted Willingcott Valley and proceed along this road down to the sharp hairpin bend. The 26 acres of land will be found sandwiched between Trimstone Lane and Bradwell Road on the left hand side of the road as you approach the hairpin bend.
