An opportunity has arisen for one lucky person to purchase a prominent, grade II listed, landmark building, including the church and attached Sunday school, in the coastal resort of Bude with granted planning permission for nine 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.

A Webbers spokesperson said: “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.”
