Freehold | 7.4 acres (3 hectares)
Site of approximately 7.40 acres with sea views within walking distance of the harbour town of Brixham. Potential lodge development site for up to 25 lodges with sea views only 1.5 miles from the town centre located at Berry Head.
The site is located on the edge of Brixham at Berry Head which is a nature reserve and there is a footpath next to the property which leads down to Berry Head Hotel and Shoalstone Beach with its outdoor pool where you can walk into Brixham town centre. Shoals Fish Restaurant which overlooks the sea is extremely popular and is known for good food within the area.
The beach of St Mary’s Bay is only 1 mile away. Brixham has a full range of amenities and facilities including primary and secondary schools plus a range of shops,
supermarkets and a fish market.
Torbay with Paignton and Torquay is 5 miles away. Paignton has a zoo plus an outdoor adventure pool, home to the Dartmouth Steam Railway where you can
get a steam train to Kingswear and then a ferry to Dartmouth which is a popular tourist attraction within the area.
Torquay further along the coastline has a theatre and is also home to Torquay Grammar School.
South Hams is also easily accessible via the Kingswear ferry which crosses the river Dart into Dartmouth which gives further access to the South Hams beaches such as Blackpool Sands, Slapton and Bigbury-on-Sea.
Harbour towns of Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe are extremely popular tourist destinations in their own right and make ideal day trips. There is golf in the area at Churston Golf Club, Dainton Park and Torbay Golf Centre. Sailing is popular in the area with moorings in Brixham harbour or at Dartmouth along with slipways.
The site is mainly level and slopes up to the rear where you can take advantage of the sea view over Torbay. The site is idea for a lodge development, yurts or a glamping site and a planning application was made in November 2015 (Planning Ref: P/2015/1092) to Torbay District Council for the erection of 15 lodges which was withdrawn in February 2016.
The majority of the surveys that were required for the planning application have been undertaken but are now out of date which led to the withdrawal of
A further scheme has been drawn up for the development of 25 lodges on the site and due to its prime location at Berry Head, we would expect good levels of demand for the units if a lodge developer was looking to sell them off individually or to run them as a holiday letting business.
All services are located in Wall Park Road and the lane to the property is included within the sale.
