Property Summary

We are thrilled to be able to offer this very rare development opportunity which comes with full planning permission for 6 new luxury 2 bedroom apartments. With breath-taking sea views and views over the legendary Tintagel Castle, also known as Camelot Castle. Camelot Castle is famous for its links to the tales of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Built half on the mainland and half on Tintagel Island which projects into the Cornish sea. Tintagel Castle is one of the most spectacular historical sites in Great Britain.

Set within the popular village of Tintagel on the beautiful North Cornish Coastline the current permission comprises of 3 ground floor apartments and 3 first and second floor duplex apartments along with 9 parking spaces. The property also has the added benefit of not having any occupancy restrictions and can therefore be used as a main residence or utilised as a holiday home or holiday letting opportunities.

The gross internal areas are estimated to be as follows:
Unit 1 710 sqft
Unit 2 786 sqft
Unit 3 732 sqft
Units 4, 5 and 6 duplex
Measured to a sloping ceiling height of 1250mm are 1055 sqft each

The property is situated in "Castle View” which is within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Heritage Coastline. The views have to be seen to be fully appreciated.
With Castle View being a short walk from the Cornish Coastal Path it provides access to nearby Tintagel beach. Heading North-East for just over a mile you will find the turquoise waters and golden sands of Bossiney Cove, further along the path you can explore the historic harbour of Boscastle. Heading south-west for just over two miles you will find the tidal beach at Trebarwith Strand which at low tide the golden sands extend to almost a mile.

The site is currently occupied with an existing building that comprises of 4x1 bed and 2x2 bed apartments with 3No AST’s currently in place. Having the existing building is particularly useful when calculating the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) as it is only chargeable on the difference between the existing building and the new building square footage rather than the whole new development.
