• 2 existing detached bungalows
• Planning permission for demolition and construction of 3 dwellings
• Mature wooded site
• Desirable East Devon location
A site of 1.42 acres on the edge of a sought after village with OPP for 3 detached dwellings. 2 existing detached bungalows with PP for demolition. Mature wooded site. Desirable East Devon location.
The property is on the edge of the sought after village of West Hill, adjoining farmland, which lies in a favoured part of East Devon.
West Hill is one of the most highly regarded villages in the area due to the substantial, mainly 20th Century properties, generally set in mature gardens in sylvan settings. The village has a mini-supermarket, butchers, bakery and a highly regarded primary school.
The property is ideally situated with easy access to the A30 dual carriageway which links to the A303 / M3 to the east and the M5 to the west at Exeter. Exeter International Airport is 6 miles to the west. London Waterloo line is 4 miles at Whimple. The university and cathedral city of Exeter with its extensive range of facilities befitting a city of its importance is 10 miles whilst the coastal resort of Sidmouth is 8 miles.
The property is being sold on behalf of Executors and comprises two detached bungalows, each of 3 bedrooms. Both are in need of improvement and therefore the property could appeal to buyers wishing to refurbish the existing properties.
However Outline Planning Permission has been granted by East Devon District Council (EDDC) on 7th October 2016 for the demolition of the existing bungalows with construction of 3 dwellings (outline application with all matters reserved) under Ref: 16/0622/OUT. The planning consent and supporting documentation which accompanied the application are available from EDDC on eastdevon.gov.uk/planning. Copies of the documents are also available from the agents.
Overall a very rare opportunity to acquire a fantastic building site for 3 dwellings in this highly regarded location or equally will appeal to buyers looking to have two detached bungalows for refurbishment / extension, subject to the necessary consents.
1. Though the driveway is owned, the adjoining property (Needlewood) has a right of way over the first few yards.
2. Japanese knotweed exists on the site. A report is being commissioned by the sellers over the situation.
3. A public sewer crosses the site.
4. There is a “provisional area TPO” and developers are encouraged to discuss with the EDDC arboricultural officer.
The bungalows currently have all mains services connected. Purchasers must make the necessary enquiries to statutory authorities for new services to serve the site.
