The opportunity to build a brand new substantial 5-8 bedroom country house in Cornwall has arisen

An opportunity to build your own country house in Cornwall on the site of an existing property near the Bude on the coast has arisen. The estate is 276 acres, and the property which there is now planning permission to allow will have between five and eight bedrooms and four reception rooms.

The property will also have fishing on the River Tamar, landscaped gardens and a walled garden plus stabling and secondary accommodation.

The property will sit in an elevated, peaceful and private, position in the rolling hills just to the west of the Tamar. The approach will be along a mile-long driveway with panoramic views across the surrounding countryside.

Planning permission is for a large house in the style of a gothic castle, built of local stone from the on site quarry. The land is mostly pasture and woodland and the associated outbuildings are in need of some refurbishment.

Grimscott is just 1.5 miles while Bude on the coast is just five miles from the site.

The guide price is £1,950,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01392 848842 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
