Building Plot

Ideal opportunity to purchase a building plot which has planning permission in principle (approval reference 15/00790/PPPL) for construction of one dwelling house. (Attention must be drawn to the special conditions attached to the planning permission), The site, referred to as the Walled Garden, extends to approx. 1375 square meters internal area. It is surrounded by stone wall typically 2.0m-2.6m high and all in good structural condition. Between a third and a half of the site (550 square meters) has been a tennis court and is delineated by the remains of a 2.0m high chain-link fence extending from the North-West to South-East walls. It is proposed to position the house within the tennis court area which would also provide sufficient space for car parking, turning and garaging as well as clothes drying and refuse storage. The remaining area has been a formal garden with concrete paths, pond and outbuilding, although overgrowth now dominates the whole area. The Walled Garden is accessed by two gateways on the farmhouse side but they do not provide vehicle access. Access to the site is via a tarmac road.

Viewing is highly recommended.
