About this property

A superb opportunity to purchase a Prime Waterside site with stunning marine views of the River Plym and the city of Plymouth. Sitting in approx 4 acres with planning permission already granted for multiple units.

Oreston, formerly a village on the southern bank of the Cattewater, is now a suburb of Plymouth and is recorded as "Horestone" on the 1591 “Spry Map of Plimmouth”. This little-known waterside area, just upstream of Turnchapel, includes a variety of attractions including a public slipway, deep water moorings, yacht club, several small local retail premises, a renowned primary school, and bus routes to the city centre together with Plymstock Broadway shopping centre, about 2 miles distant.

Plymouth City Centre offers an extensive range of amenities including the nationally renowned Theatre Royal, Drake Circus shopping complex and the historic Hoe and Barbican, with its wide range of restaurants, bars, cafes and boutique shops.

The city hosts at least five yacht marinas including Sutton Harbour, International Mayflower Marina, Plymouth Yacht Haven, Queen Anne’s Battery and King Point, providing an excellent base for exploring the South West’s many fantastic beaches and anchorages, or further afield to France and the Channel Islands.

The A38 Devon Expressway provides quick links to the M5 at Exeter or Cornwall across the River Tamar.

Plymouth mainline train station, providing direct links to London Paddington in under 4 hours.

Located on banks of Oreston Quay and Cattedown water alongside the entrance to Hooe Lake, this site occupies a fantastic waterside position with the neighbouring and most recent development, Boston Close built by Cavanna Homes in 2015, and the established waterside community within the Old Wharf overlooking the Hooe Lake. The site enjoys a superb waterside scene across the River towards Mount Batten and yacht haven marina, offering a unique opportunity for yacht or water sports enthusiasts to live in a private gated community with the use of its own private slipway and deep-water mornings.

The property is identified by the site edged red and extends to approximately 4.1318 acres (1.6721 hectares) including foreshore (excluding the foreshore the site extends to 2.9096 acres (1.775 hectares)). Also included in the site is three existing structures, one being Park House (floor plan included in technical pack) a prominent house occupying an excellent location with good views and potentially good outside space and two commercial buildings one previously used as offices and a large industrial building currently used as storage.

Whilst the current planning permission is shown on the attached plan edged blue extending to approximately to 2.18 acres (0.88 hectares), the sale includes all the site edged red including foreshore.

The property is registered as Title number DN197654, DN423152, DN358003 and DN 537886. (Copies of the register and plans are provided in the technical pack)

The site has been elected for VAT at the prevailing rate, except Park House and its surrounding garden.

The site benefits from full planning permission 17/02074/FUL for the redevelopment of the site by erection of 15 dwellings and associated roads, footways, garages, parking and landscaping (demolition of existing boatyard buildings) and works to replace slipway.

A technical pack is available on request although we would recommend that all purchasers carry out their own planning due diligence.

The seller is inviting offers on an unconditional basis.
