Development plot with planning permission for a 4/5 bedroom family home , situated in a peaceful rural setting on the fringes of Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall.

A wonderful opportunity to construct a substantial family home and paddock totalling approximately 0.42 acres in the ever popular harbour town of Fowey, on the south coast of Cornwall, orietated south and overlooking surrounding countryside.

Postioned at the head of the valley that runs down to Readymoney Cove the property benefits from access from the main road into Fowey without the need to enter the restricted town centre, the property also has easy access to the nearby beaches and South West Coast Path as well as being a short stroll to the town centre and harbour. The property is well positioned to take maximum advantage of all outdoor and cultural activities the popular and desirable town of Fowey provides, both as a place to live and work on a permanent basis as well as catering for the regular influx of high quality visitors.

Full building regulations, structural engineering and drainage drawings have been completed and will be provided at no additional charge as part of the sale, the site is ready to commence construction immediately once building regulations have been approved.

The property is located on the western periphery of the town of Fowey, one of the most desirable and popular harbour towns on the south coast of Cornwall. Fowey provides access to a vast array of wonderful coastline, both within the town and harbour, westwards past the Gribben Head and the iconic red and white Daymark around the Menabilly headland to the village of Polkerris, or across the estuary on pedestrian ferry to Polruan or vehicular ferry at Bodinnick to the wilder and quieter coastline and beaches to the east. Venturing up the estuary brings you to the tranquil creekside villages of Golant, Lerryn and St Winnow with the historic town of Lostwithiel at its head.

As well as the natural beauty of the area, Fowey has an illustrious past as an active fishing and commercial port, where the activities of the china clay industry still operate alongside the leisure and tourist activities. The town’s importance throughout the ages is indicated by the impressive historic harbour buildings and quays, the entrance to the estuary being flanked by 14th century fortifications and medieval buildings.
Fowey is also well known due to the writer Daphne du Maurier being a former resident, her legacy being the Fowey Festival of Arts & Literature (formerly The du Maurier Festival) which the town hosts alongside other regular events such as the Fowey Royal Regatta Week, Fowey Valley Music Festival, the Fowey Christmas Market and many other live events, craft fairs and planned activities taking place around the estuary throughout the year.

As expected in desirable coastal towns in Cornwall, high quality locally sourced food and drink plays an important role, with ample restaurants, bars and cafes in close proximity.
There are direct mainline rail service from Lostwithiel eastwards to Plymouth, Exeter and London Paddington and westwards to Truro and Penzance, national and international flights can be taken from Newquay International Airport.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.
