This development opportunity is located centrally within the village of Bere Alston.
The village is well-served by local amenities and facilities, including a Co-op mini-supermarket (approx 350 yards away), and also benefits from a direct 25-minute rail service to Plymouth City Centre. Bere Alston forms the hub of an area known as the Bere Peninsula, created by the confluence of the rivers Tamar and Tavy, which itself falls within the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The verdant wooded banks of the Tamar Valley, along the Devon/Cornwall border, offer extensive opportunities to discover the region's rich history and heritage.
A few miles further to the east, in West Devon, is the thriving market town of Tavistock, steeped in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century, and famed for being the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake. Today, the town offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the sought-after private and independent school, Mount Kelly, whilst the largely 19th century town centre is focussed around the Pannier Market and Bedford Square, in which regular farmer's markets are held.
Tavistock straddles the river Tavy and borders with the Dartmoor National Park along its eastern edge, making it an extremely popular destination for lovers of the outdoors with walking, riding, cycling and exploring all on the doorstep.

A detached two-storey workshop (currently approx.1,047sq.ft) with planning consent to be converted into a 2-bedroom dwelling with reverse-level accommodation, comprising two bedrooms and a shower room on the ground floor, with an open-plan sitting, dining and kitchen space, plus a separate WC, on the first floor. A small courtyard is located to the side of the building. Those looking for a small-scale or self-build conversion project should take particular interest.

We are advised that all mains-supplied services are available on-site.

Planning consent was granted by West Devon Borough Council on 30th March 2017 (ref: 0060/17/FUL).
