Alder King markets former abattoir site in Porlock with development potential and stunning coastal views
Alder King in Taunton has been appointed by LPA Receivers to market a former abattoir site with development potential in Porlock, together with two associated retail/residential premises in nearby Minehead.
The 7.34 acre site in Porlock includes a range of commercial buildings and yards previously used as an abattoir and a pasture field of 5.76 acres giving spectacular views over the Bristol Channel and Exmoor National Park. The site has main access from the High Street but there is a further right of way to the rear field via a track.
The site has potential for a modest residential development, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Further information, including a guide price, is available from Alder King’s Taunton office on 01823 444879 and joint agents John Smale & Co on 01271 342000.
The associated retail/residential premises in Minehead are located on Park Street in the town’s Conservation Area and provide 3,102 sq ft of interconnected accommodation. The two retail units were previously used as a butchers and delicatessen.
The property also includes two self-contained first floor flats and an office area with separate access. The property retains a number of period features including fireplaces, original joinery and sash windows.
Alder King and joint agent Chanin & Thomas on 01643 706666 are marketing the freehold of the Minehead property with an asking price of £295,000.
Andrew Maynard, partner at Alder King, said: “Both properties offer enormous potential.
“The Porlock site will be of great interest to residential developers who are always keen to acquire well-located plots of land, especially one with such a stunning coastal view, while owner occupiers and investors will be interested in the Minehead properties because they are situated in the centre of such a popular tourist destination.”
