Idyllically located with glorious sea view – c.1.2 acres

A dilapidated cottage in need of total renovation or reconstruction, occupying a fine elevated site with maturity to the boundaries and a magnificent coastal view. The existing dwelling can be reconstructed without planning permission using the existing floor area and this can be increased, if required, by 40 sq metres as a conservatory to the rear of the property. Additionally to the rear there is a separate detached two storey outbuilding which would also have potential for recreational use. A glorious opportunity to create a magnificent home in a truly spectacular setting either for permanent occupation or as a holiday home.
