Full description

EXCITING OPPORTUNITY for a level DEVELOPMENT SITE on the fringe of this POPULAR VILLAGE location, situated within the towns of Hatherleigh and Okehampton which offer a comprehensive range of shopping, banking and schooling facilities as well as a wide range of leisure facilities and employment opportunities. The A30 corridor is easily accessible by car and gives easy access to the nearby city of Exeter and numerous other towns such as Launceston, Holsworthy and Torrington as well as the north and south coast being easily accessible.

The site itself offers an exciting opportunity for the development of fourteen new homes on this level site with excellent main road access. The current owners are also prepared to offer a range of further options should additional land be required for further development subject to the necessary planning consents and options could be put in place for the successful buyer.

Planning permission was originally granted under application number Planning No. 02440/2012 by West Devon Borough Council and the current scheme was authorised on the 13th of June 2014 and is currently subject to a 106 agreement which was also undertaken on the 13th of June 2014.

The current design allows for a mixture of terraced, semi-detached and detached houses, and will ideally suit those seeking a family home within the general area and who wish to enjoy the convenience of the location, combined with village life and the villages public house is situated within a few minute walk from the site.

The local schools are highly regarded within the town of Okehampton and offer both primary and secondary schooling and there are a number of public schools within easy striking distance.

The nearby open space of Dartmoor National Park offers a superb opportunity for those who enjoy hill walking, tracking, mountain biking and the nearby Meldon reservoir offers a beautiful gateway to the National Park and is only a few minutes drive away.

There are also positive opportunities for the rail line between Okehampton and Exeter to be reopened in the future, and this will have a substantial positive impact on the whole area should this proceed. The track, bed and line already exist and was regularly used by Meldon quarry until its closure a few years ago and a passenger service does periodically run already on a Sunday.
