With full detailed planning permission granted, this detached bungalow has exceptional residential development potential

Westwinds represents an exceptional residential development opportunity to build an architect designed contemporary new home located on the outskirts of the bustling and highly popular village of St Merryn. The existing property is a detached dormer bungalow in need of redevelopment, situated within a generous elevated plot offering distant sea views and backed by open farmland.

Full detailed planning permission has been sought and granted under planning number PA18/03875 for the demolition of Westwinds and the construction of a substantial four bedroom all en-suite detached home of intended contemporary design comprising locally sourced external materials and an individualistic design. The proposed internal layout is of a reverse living arrangement with the living/kitchen/dining room located on the first floor with glass balustrade balcony together with a study, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and glass balustrade balcony. An atrium entrance hallway will connect the first floor to the ground floor which will comprise three more en-suite double bedrooms and integral double garage. It is proposed that the replacement dwelling will incorporate sustainable and energy efficient features and services, including a high degree of insulation, PV solar panels, a Sedum green roof and ground source heat pump. The approximate size of the replacement dwelling is 2500 square feet.

The gardens of Westwinds are well established with an abundance of mature planting, dense evergreen shrubs and three substantial scots pine trees which provide a natural boundary and screening. The majority of this will be retained. As part of the planning consent, it is proposed that the detached garage and workshop will be demolished and will receive evergreen shrub planting to soften the vista and retain privacy. Services to the existing property include mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.

The bustling village of St Merryn offers a good range of amenities including several restaurants, a post office/grocery store, a bakers/delicatessen, a petrol station/garage and two Public Houses including Rick Stein's ‘The Cornish Arms’ serving great food and local ales. There is also a doctors surgery and Primary School with an excellent reputation. The village is a great base from which to explore the surrounding coastline which includes the beaches of Harlyn Bay, Trevone Bay, Constantine Bay, Treyarnon and Porthcothan which are all located within a 3 to 5 mile radius.

The historic and picturesque fishing town of Padstow is just three miles distant and offers an extensive range of cafes, public houses and restaurants, none more so than Paul Ainsworth’s Michelin starred No.6 and of course Rick Steins esteemed Seafood restaurant. Within 9 miles is the thriving market town of Wadebridge on the river Camel, which offers a fine selection of shops and amenities including a sports centre, cinema, a primary and secondary school and a selection of supermarkets. The nearest mainline station is Bodmin Parkway which is approximately 20 miles distant with the nearest airport at Newquay just 13 miles away.

To find Westwinds, leave Padstow and follow the B3276 towards Trevone and St Merryn. Follow this road for approximately 2.7 miles. Pass the Cornish Arms pub and continue into the heart of St Merryn. Head straight over the crossroads through St Merryn and continue along the road for approximately ½ a mile and Westwinds can be found along on the left hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is PL28 8JU.
