Situation & Description
This rare development opportunity offers a buyer the chance to purchase a very exciting building plot in an extremely desirable location in the village of Blunsdon, just south of the Cotswolds with the benefit of full planning permission for the erection of a new, 4 bedroom detached house extending to approximately 2,054sqft (190.9sqm) all set in around 0.42 acres of land.
The house is located on the exclusive Back Lane in Blunsdon, enjoying a high degree of privacy and fronting onto open countryside as well as adjoining a paddock to the side of the property meaning the property will be attractive to those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Extensive walks are on your doorstep and the South Cotswold Water Park is a short drive north on the A419.
There are an excellent selection of local schools, to include: William Morris Primary, St Leonard's CofE Primary Academy and Great Western Academy and a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities in nearby Swindon. Due to easy access to the A419, the nearby towns of Cirencester and the Cotswolds are within easy reach with the M4 (junction 15) and A420 (Oxford) also being nearby. Swindon town centre benefits from a mainline station with London Paddington under 50 minutes away.
Planning consent has been granted by Swindon Borough Council for the erection of a single dwelling under application number: S/20/1322
Once built, the house will measure c.190.9sqm (2,054sqft) and comprise of; Entrance Hall, W.C., Kitchen / Dining Room, Study and separate Living Room on the ground floor and a Master Bedroom with and En-Suite plus 3 Double Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom on the first floor. The second floor has a galleried room and store room which could be converted into additional bedrooms (subject to gaining the necessary consents). There will be a private driveway with the gardens in total extending to c.0.42acres.
Copies of the decision notice and approved plans are available upon request.
It is believed that mains services are available but it is the responsibility of prospective purchasers to satisfy themselves as to the availability and suitability of such services by making all necessary enquiries to the relevant statutory authorities.
It is our opinion that, subject to planning approval, there is potential for an additional dwelling to be built in the grounds of the plot.

* Generally speaking Guide Prices are provided as an indication of each seller's minimum expectation, i.e. 'The Reserve'. They are not necessarily figures which a property will sell for and may change at any time prior to the auction. Virtually every property will be offered subject to a Reserve (a figure below which the Auctioneer cannot sell the property during the auction) which we expect will be set within the Guide Range or no more than 10% above a single figure Guide.
By setting a proxy bid, the system will automatically bid on your behalf to maintain your position as the highest bidder, up to your proxy bid amount. If you are outbid, you will be notified via email so you can opt to increase your bid if you so choose.
If two of more users place identical bids, the bid that was placed first takes precedence, and this includes proxy bids.
Another bidder placed an automatic proxy bid greater or equal to the bid you have just placed. You will need to bid again to stand a chance of winning.
