BUILD TO LET, BUILD TO SELL, SELF-BUILD? YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE.
It is the large, attached 3 story Barn, (with full P.P. for 4 new homes), approaching 60 feet in length, or some 2,600 Sq ft - that features at the heart of this superb development opportunity. The surrounding, large, walled garden/ green space, large garage/parking add to the appeal, but it is the location directly in the heart of the Town, yet just paces from the 365 acre commons which make this so interesting. The planning which has been granted offers a conversion for 3, 3 storey, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom homes (which have a very large demographic buyer pool owing to the split of bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, as well as the second floor, with the living space, elevated in the middle) - and another, newly built, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2 storey home, all of which are proven to be very popular for buyers and tenants alike. The plans allow for a beautiful green space for all to enjoy and parking for some. The vehicular access is at the back of the property and includes removal of the large garage to create more open parking. If additional parking is needed, permits can be obtained for residents for the car park which is just paces from the access. It could not be more convenient!
The Barn is attached to the museum building and there is the back edge of a commercial and residential building opposite. Otherwise, there is a lot of sky, the Pannier Market lies behind the stone wall, on one side of the garden - and the garden of a residence on the other. This is interesting as, whilst the plans offer perfect build to rent, or sell, there could be a stunning, individual home here of over 3000 sq ft, with a balanced, large, garden, garage and parking, as close to the commons as is possible, in many cases. Maybe? Definitely worth thinking about if you are looking for a development for self-build.
