Single Building Plot
Guide Price £375,000
WATCOMBE - SOLD
A detailed planning consent has been granted for a stunning, large detached house of approximately 3875sq. ft., within the Conservation Area. The plans indicate six bedrooms plus a study with a home office and double garage. This superb plot has views over Babbacombe Bay and is situated in a quiet and secluded wooded location within large grounds and benefits from a private driveway.
The site is approximately 1.5 acres, now largely cleared by the current owners; there is still part of a derelict building on site that will need removing. The site is surrounded by trees and nature and is an idyllic spot, with views across the coast to the east and there are no near neighbours.
The site is part of an area purchased by Isambard Kingdom Brunel in 1847 to create his house and estate. It is also a Conservation Area; therefore it has both historic and intrinsic merit. Watcombe Beach is a small cove surrounded by cliffs and wooded hillsides, whilst Babbacombe Model Village and the Cliff Railway are nearby. The secondary schools of Mayfield and Combe Pafford were both rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and there is also Watcombe Primary School in the immediate area. Torquay is approximately 2.5 miles from the plot along the coastal road. Torquay is set along 22 miles of coastline, with a palm-tree lined promenade and spectacular cliffs, coves and beaches. Torquay has an international marina and is a centre for sailing and surfing. It is also a centre for art and culture and has numerous cafes, pubs and restaurants within the town.
The site has all main services including gas already on site. We would advise potential purchasers to make their own enquiries with regard to services prior to exchange of contracts.
The site can be viewed only by prior appointment with The Land Bank Partnership as the gate is locked to access the site.
