About this property
An EXCEPTIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY to create an ARCHITECT DESIGNED country house with MAGNIFICENT VIEWS over 26 acres of UNDULATING FARM LAND.
Planning consent is granted to replace the existing farmhouse and re-site it from the road, at the centre of this wonderful block of farmland. The accommodation which has detailed planning consent and is illustrated within these sales particulars by computer generated images, could be remodelled internally to suit individual requirements (subject to the usual consents).
The proposed accommodation would approximately extend to some 3444 Sq2 and in brief would comprise a reception hall, open plan living kitchen, two reception rooms, utility/boot room, study, master bedroom with dressing area and ensuite, bedroom two with dressing area and ensuite, bedroom four with ensuite, two further bedrooms and family bathroom. Outside provides triple garaging and an oak framed car port.
Planning permission 18/01133/FUL was granted on 17th August 2018 for the demolition of the former farmhouse and outbuildings and the erection of a new dwelling and garaging. Further details of the planning permission are available at www.harborough.go.uk. They are also included within a purchaser's pack, which is available on request.
The current site provides an impressive 190m frontage onto Station Road, with an in and out driveway and a substantial area of hard standing for horse boxes, machinery and vehicles. A barn provides an indoor school for those with an equestrian interest. The land is predominately grass, sloping gently towards the River Sence and provides both attractive views over fields and uninterrupted open countryside beyond.
The land will be subject to an overage provision; for 25 years, with a 30% uplift of any additional value being created by virtue of planning permission for additional residential dwellings. The existing overage provisions lapse in 2022.
