A wonderful opportunity to purchase an individual building plot set in generous gardens with a largely tree lined border featuring wonderful views. The plot is approximately two thirds of an acre and is situated on the Cornwall / Devon border and offers seclusion yet is only 4 miles from Launceston Town and its facilities.
The site currently features a timber chalet and therefore is likely to be purchased by a cash buyer although there are lenders that potentially look at buy to build mortgages to develop a house on the site.
The chalet is occupied and therefore has services including electric, private borehole water and drainage are connected. The site also features a second timber lodge offering further potential. The gardens are a real feature of the site and feature a wide range of mature trees and shrubbery with pathways through the gardens and wonderful views over the wooded valley and countryside surrounding.
The planning application number is PA17/04751 and is for a new 3 bedroom cottage style property to be situated on the footprint of the existing main chalet footprint and subject to conditions.
The property is situated in a semi-rural position approximately 2 miles from Launceston Town. The nearest villages are Lawhitton where there is a Cricket Club and Lezant which features a pretty Church and various community events.
