Bedrooms: 5
A large building plot on the edge of a popular village. Detailed planning permission for a detached dwelling comprising hall, cloakroom, kitchen/breakfast room, utility, open plan living/dining room, study, 5 bedrooms (master en-suite) and family bathroom. Fine views over farmland to Exmoor. Total about 0.25 Acres. Freehold.


The building plot is set just off the centre of the very sought after village of Chittlehamholt, which has a church, village hall, community shop and well-regarded public house, The Exeter Inn. Also situated on the outskirts of the village is the renowned Highbullen Hotel & Country Club with its golf course and very impressive state of the art leisure facilities.

The local towns of South Molton and Chulmleigh lie about seven miles away respectively and offer a good range of further amenities including schooling to secondary level. The larger regional centre of Barnstaple is about 13 miles and the Cathedral City of Exeter is about 28 miles to the south east.

Both Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks as well as the renowned North Devon coastline are within easy reach by car.


The site is predominantly level and currently has a gated access off the primary road that leads through the village. There is a modern, portal-framed BUILDING (43' x 28'9 ) alongside the road. The site opens out to the rear and has a wonderful outlook over farmland and woodland to the rear with Exmoor in the distance.

Prior approval was initially granted for the change of use of the existing agricultural building on the site to a dwelling house under Class Q(A+B) in December 2020 (Ref: 72416). A subsequent planning application for the DEMOLITION OF THE EXISTING AGRICULTURAL BUILDING TOGETHER WITH THE ERECTION OF A DWELLING ALONG WITH FORMATION OF A NEW ACCESS AND ASSOCIATED WORKS was approved on 11th October 2021 by North Devon Council (Ref: 73279).

The approved plans allow for the siting of a new dwelling further into the site and away from the road. Plans for the spacious new dwelling (199 sqm / 2142 sqft) provide for a HALL, CLOAKROOM, KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM, UTILITY, OPEN-PLAN LIVING/DINING ROOM and a STUDY on the ground floor with FIVE BEDROOMS (MASTER EN-SUITE) and a FAMILY BATHROOM on the first floor.

Provision has been made for the creation of a new access and parking to the front.

In total the plot amounts to ABOUT A QUARTER OF AN ACRE.
