Property Description: DESCRIPTION
Situated in a peaceful, rural location just outside Kingston in an area of outstanding natural beauty is Tor Rock. The land comprises moderately sloping pasture and scrubland from which beautiful views can be had along the valley. The land is bounded by mature trees and hedges and offers a secluded and peaceful setting and would be suitable for recreational/amenity use subject to any necessary planning permission being obtained. The land has mostly been left untended over the years and would benefit from some clearing of scrub to allow for further pasture to be created. On the site is a large granite boulder named Tor Rock. In total the land amounts to some 1.39 acres (0.56 Ha). SITUATION
