Full description

SOLD BY AUCTION FOR £86,000 - Former plant nursery with potential for alternative uses (STP). Road frontage, edge of popular village, former workshop/store building, polytunnels and attractive views. 0.80 acres.

Situation - Braggs Wood Nursery is located on the eastern edge of the popular village of Boyton, which has a primary school rated "good" by OFSTED and two places of worship. The well respected Countryman Inn is approximately 2.5 miles away, and a comprehensive range of shopping, health, education and leisure facilities are available in Launceston. The A30 dual-carriageway can be joined at Launceston, which provides access between the cathedral cities of Exeter and Truro.

Description - Situated approximately half a mile from the centre of Boyton, is a former plant nursery of approximately 0.8 acres (0.32 hectares) which offers an opportunity to operate as a Nursery again. FORMER WORKSHOP/STORE BUILDING (of approximately 270 sq metres), constructed of rendered concrete block under a steel profile roof. This building is predominantly single storey with a small two storey element. Internally the building is sub-divided into a number of rooms including a kitchen and WC. The building is set well back from the road with fine views of the unspoilt countryside along the Tamar Valley with a substantial growing area and three polytunnels to the rear.

Agent's Note - The internal photographs of the outbuilding were taken in 2016.

Services - Mains water and electricity. Private drainage.

Development Potential - In the past there has been a succession of temporary consents for the siting of a mobile home to serve Boyton Nurseries, the last one being February 1998. Whilst there is an opportunity to re-open the nursery, the site may have potential for alternative uses, such as a rural office, a builder's yard or perhaps since the introduction of a "presumption in favour of sustainable development", in the National planning policy framework, there may be potential to create a dwelling, all subject to obtaining any necessary planning consent. Purchasers must make their own enquiries and satisfy themselves on this point.

Development Claw Back - Perhaps slightly unusually, there is no development claw back clause requiring a purchaser to pay the vendor for any share of an uplift in value.

Sporting And Mineral Rights - The Sporting and Mineral Rights such as are owned are included within the sale.

Wayleaves, Covenants And Rights Of Way - The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of any Wayleave Agreements in respect of electricity or telephone equipment and the property is sold subject to and with the benefit of any public or private rights of way. There are no footpaths or public rights of way shown on the Ordnance Survey Plan that affect the property.

Plans And Boundary Fences - A plan which is not to be relied upon is attached to the reverse of these sale particulars. Purchasers must satisfy themselves from inspection or otherwise as to its accuracy. For the avoidance of doubt, the neighbours have planted a second hedge on their side of the eastern boundary, which is totally within their property.

Local Authority - Cornwall Council, County Hall, Treyew Road, Truro, Cornwall, TR1 3AY. T: 0300 1234100.
