Property Description

A superb opportunity to purchase a prominent, grade II listed, landmark building, including the Church and attached Sunday school, in the stunning coastal resort of Bude with granted planning permission for 9 exclusive apartments, within a short level stroll of the beach.

Flexbury Church, with its adjoining Sunday school rooms, was built in 1905 by a local builder, Mr John Pethick.

The rectangular Church has gable ends and a grandiose west front with north and south towers which were constructed in stone from a Bude quarry.

Pitch pine, allegedly washed up from a local shipwreck, were used in the construction of the pulpit, organ frame and pews. The approved sympathetic planning consent proposes retention of the pulpit and organ structures in the design of one of the internal communal staircases.

One of the principal selling points is the lifestyle the location affords. Leave the car behind as you walk along Downs View to Crooklets beach.
At low tide you can walk across the sand to Summerleaze Beach - you can bathe safely in the sea all year-round, even when the tide is out, in Bude’s free Sea Pool. Built 90 years ago it is the largest sea pool in Cornwall, and gets refreshed with every high tide. The Breakwater (built in 1843) provides a safe anchorage, hence the original name Budehaven.

From either beach you can walk along the rugged cliffs of the north Cornish coastal path and onto Widemouth Bay, the popular surfing beach. To the North to Northcott Mouth and the National Trust owned Sandymouth Beach.

The coastal town of Bude has a range of artisan shops, the town library and a weekly farmers’ market, with lovely inland walks along the towpath towards The Weir, a popular bistro, and the village of Marhamchurch. The church overlooks Bude Golf Club, which provides an unusual “in-town” links course playable all year round.

Bude has a wide range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities and lies alongside the main A39 Atlantic Highway creating good access to the south to Newquay and its airport and north, via the towns of Bideford and Barnstaple, to the north Devon link road leading to the M5, Bristol and beyond. Exeter, Plymouth with its ferry port and the capital of Cornwall Truro lie within an hour and a half drive, but much of the reason that Bude wins numerous tourism awards is that it is ‘a little bit out of the way’ and the town and beaches are relatively unchanged in this ever changing world.

Conditional planning (App PA21/10056) and listed building consent (App PA21/08578) have been granted by Cornwall Council.

The Council on-line planning portal has all the information and related documents and the QR code can be scanned, to the rear of our brochure, which will provide instant access to all the relevant legal and planning documentation.
