Finding the right place

Single Building Plot
Guide Price £250,000
A planning consent has been granted for a new end of terrace three storey house with garden and on-site parking, just a 10 minute walk from the City centre in a desirable residential location. The new end of terrace property will extend the existing western end of a long, late 19th century, terrace of houses. This planning consent covers access, layout and scale, with appearance and landscaping being reserved matters for a further application. Preliminary discussions on appearance suggest a façade to match the adjoining property and the rear elevation to have a full height bay window. The roof is likely to be natural slate with Bath Ashlar stone walls and possibly rubble stone on the side elevation, but appearance and landscaping are currently reserved matters. The new house will have a gross internal area of approximately 1600sq.ft or 175sq.ft gross external area, .which will make it a large three bedroom dwelling. The existing terrace will extend by a further 6.2m for the new dwelling x 9m on three storeys. The garden to the rear of the new property extends down to a stone wall at the foot of the plot in a straight line from the new house. There is a quiet cul-de-sac at the foot of the site and the plot enjoys south-facing extensive views over the City.
The Site
The plot is approximately 366sq.m and slopes to the south. There is a lock-up garage on the plot that will need to be removed. The plot will provide a garden and on-site parking for two cars where the garage currently stands, to be replaced by an open parking bay .There are no TPO’s on site. A stone wall needs to be built to separate the two dwellings and to demarcate the boundaries for each property and to prevent vehicle access from the foot of the plot into the new property. We are advised by the owner that this could be a block wall and render but further enquiries on this can be made to the planning authority.
The Area
Walcot is a suburb and Conservation Area to the north-east of the City, most noted for its 18th century Church of St. Swithen.

The City Centre is also home to the Theatre Royal Bath and the world famous Roman Baths. The Jane Austen Centre is another tourist attraction and the City enjoys an all year round thriving tourist industry. The 57 acre Royal Victoria Park is just one of several parks in the City.

The site has access to all main services including gas. We would advise potential purchasers to make their own enquires to clarify this prior to purchase.

The site can be viewed on an open viewing basis between the hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Friday only. Please do not walk onto the plot outside of these hours. The plot can most easily be accessed on foot from Pera Place, which is the road at the foot of the plot.
