Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An opportunity has arisen to purchase an area of amenity land of approximately 0.07 acres (301.289m2) located in the centre of the sought after coastal village of Mortehoe on the North Devon Coast. The plot measures approximately 19.8m from the front boundary to the rear and is approximately 15.2m wide with direct frontage to the public highway but is elevated above the level of the road.

Currently, the ground is used as additional garden to Greenfield House but it is considered that there is some potential to erect a single dwelling subject to necessary consent from the local authority. Our clients have already taken some pre-application advice from North Devon District Council who have visited the site and given a positive response subject to design and parking arrangements. Reference has also been made to the height of any new dwelling and maybe the need to excavate the site accordingly. Further information on the advice sought is available upon request.

Access to the site is via a shared pedestrian footpath from the public high way although any new dwelling would no doubt create a new entrance point of its own direct from the road. There are no specific services to the site at present but we understand that all mains services are in the near vicinity.

The ground is located in the heart of the popular coastal village of Mortehoe and is a short, mainly level walk from the local amenities. There is also easy access to plenty of nearby walking along the South West Coastal footpath which enjoys some of North Devon's most spectacular scenery.

Parcels of ground in the centre of the village seldom come to the market so this truly does represent a rare opportunity.
Applicants are advised to proceed from our offices in a westerly direction heading out of town on the main A361 signposted Barnstaple. At Mullacott roundabout take the right hand exit signposted Woolacombe and Mortehoe and continue along this road for approximately 2 miles. Shortly after Turnpike Cross and just before The Fortescue public house turn right signposted Mortehoe. Continue along this road for approximately 2 1/2 miles into the village of Mortehoe. Upon entering the village proceed down the hill and turn first right immediately after the post office into North Morte Road. Continue along this road passing the lifeboat building on your left hand side and as the road narrows there are a row of terraced cottages on the left hand side of the road. One of those cottages is Greenfield House and the amenity land for sale is located immediately opposite.
