A very rare opportunity to purchase a superb plot in a most idyllic and timeless setting, partly intersected by the stream. The plot currently accommodates the former Lownard Youth Hostel building. Permission has been granted for the demolition of this building and the erection of an individual detached 4 bedroomed house with associated garage, landscaping and associated infrastructure. Details of the application can be found at the South Hams Planning website, application number: 3911/16/FUL. The plot is bordered by mature trees and hedges which provides a good degree of privacy and seclusion. Beyond the stream is an interesting area of light woodland and the setting is an ideal haven for wildlife and flora.
The plot is situated in the tiny hamlet of Lownard, a short distance from the historic settlement of Week, that comprises a cluster of fine period properties. Dartington is less than 1 mile and provides a village shop/post office, garage, thriving primary school and the celebrated Dartington Cider Press with exclusive shopping, cafes and restaurant. Dartington Hall is an internationally famous centre for performing arts and progressive education. Nearby Totnes is about 3 miles and offers a superb range of small shops, cafes, galleries and excellent educational provision. Leisure facilities are available on the River Dart including sailing and rowing and the town also benefits from a mainline station to London Paddington.
The property and land is subject to an Overage Clause in favour of Dartington Hall Estate. Settlement of this is the responsibility of the vendor/seller.
