SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A rare opportunity to purchase a development site close to the heart of the pretty Cornish hamlet of Lower Metherell, nestling in the picturesque Tamar Valley, within easy reach of the market towns of Callington and Tavistock, and within commutable distance of Plymouth.

Callington is an attractive small town with a good range of shopping facilities, including a new Tesco supermarket, and its own primary school and comprehensive schools. Three major banks have branches in the main street and there is also a modern health centre. There is a full range of sporting facilities in the area, including the Country Club of St. Mellion, three miles away with its famous golf courses. Callington is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is a very short distance from the Tamar Valley, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor.  

Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park which offers a variety of additional facilities including a number of supermarkets, The Wharf Cultural Centre, notable boutiques, delicatessens and the Pannier Market. There is also a hospital and a full range of schools both State and Private - indeed Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival.

Plymouth has fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.

 

An exciting opportunity to purchase a development site to be sold with the benefit of two outline Planning Consents as follows:

 

SEMI-DETACHED HOMES: Cornwall Council granted outline Planning Consent under Application No: PA16/03847 for the construction of four semi-detached residential dwellings, with gardens and parking. 

DETACHED HOMES: Cornwall Council granted outline Planning Consent under Application No: PA16/03850 for the constructions of two detached dwellings with garaging, large gardens and private parking.  

The development is located in a quiet position, away from busy main roads, close to the heart of the pretty Cornish village of Lower Metherell, located in the picturesque Tamar Valley which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Within the village there is a well patronised public house and there is a well regarded country primary school in the neighbouring village of Harrowbarrow, which is approximately one mile away.

The site is to be accessed via a private road, leading from the highway, which is to be retained and maintained by the current owners. At present, the boundaries are not marked but will be clearly pegged out before completion of the sale. The current owners will erect suitable perimeter fencing, the type and style of which is to be agreed. 

PLANNING PERMISSION It should be noted that the Planning Consents granted also include the stationing of eight mobile homes for holiday purposes. This part of the site is to be retained by our clients.

Full details of the Planning Application, together with plans and drawings are available on the Cornwall Council website at www.cornwall.gov.uk.
