LAND OFF FORE STREET
An incredibly rare opportunity to secure a potential development opportunity (subject to necessary planning permissions) in one of Port Isaac’s most stunning locations.

The site occupies a small promontory overlooking the historic harbour, this spectacular and elevated location enjoys breath-taking and uninterrupted views over the harbour and coast beyond. The site is situated within the developed boundaries of the village, it is currently occupied by an existing chalet and number of storage sheds in addition to parking and gardens. The chalet is of masonry construction with a white render finish, the sheds are a combination of masonry and timber, none of which are listed. The cliff has been surveyed and an Engineers report is available and concludes that stability and ground conditions.

History
The evidence suggests the site was historically a garden. Cartographic evidence indicates some small outbuildings existed on the site during the early C20, these were entirely demolished in favour of the present buildings which were in place by 1955. The Tithe Survey records the site as ‘gardens and cliff’, under ownership of the Executors of Samuel Billings and occupied by James Billings. He is recorded by the 1841 census as resident of Port Isaac, a farmer.

The 1970s OS shows the site as it appears in the present. Both the chalet structure and storage building are depicted confirming buildings of the site had achieved their present form by the early 1970s. In appearance and materials employed in construction both buildings appear post-war in date.

THE AREA
