You know I love unusual auction lots – but this latest offering which is going to auction is the perfect summer lot – like drinking Pimms at a summer BBQ – there is nothing like the idea of a private beach. Of owning your own beach.
And that is what we have up for offer – yes a private beach. And we’re not talking in the middle of nowhere, we’re not talking about some remote Outer Hebrides island or down some dirt track in the wilderness of Scotland – no we’re talking South Coast and we’re talking Weymouth. Host location of the 2012 Olympics sailing events and benefactor of public funds. And the guide is just £75k!
And I agree with the auctioneers that “This is a truly exciting opportunity”.
So what’s up for sale? It’s a sandy beach just over a mile from Weymouth Town centre. With stunning panoramic views over Portland Harbour. The beach has a timber refreshment kiosk on site which has been successfully run in the past and has permission to continue to do so until November 2015. The beach has the benefit of three planning permissions which allow for the erection of an eco toilet and wooden store, retrospective consent for the erection of a refreshment kiosk and the erection of 8 beach chalets. The beach which forms part of the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline is also close to the Sandsfoot Castle remains and the Castle Cove Sailing Club, providing excellent tourist and recreational facilities.
So if you’re thinking of a place by the sea – or getting started in holiday lettings – you can’t get closer than this…and with your very own beach you’ll be the star of your summer BBQs!
