Information

    • For Sale by PUBLIC AUCTION Thursday 14 July 2022 at 7.00 pm prompt
    • To be held at the Festival Drayton Centre, Market Drayton TF9 3AX
    • Lot One - three-bedroom dilapidated cottage requiring total modernisation
    • Huge potential for development
    • 0.54 Acres (0.22 Ha) gardens 
    • Lot Two - 1.76 Acres (0.71 Ha) rough pasture

    Location
    This fantastic and unusual development opportunity is located in a stunning rural location deep in the Staffordshire countryside. However, its location mid-way between Eccleshall and Loggerheads means that a wide range of facilities including supermarkets, independent shops, schools and doctors are available within five miles. Furthermore, Junction 14 of the M6 motorway and the mainline railway station at Stafford are within twenty minutes drive.
    This popular area is well known for its quiet network of country lanes which are ideal for walking and cycling and bridlepaths offering miles of off-road riding. In addition, nearby Bishop's Wood offers access to 1,000 Acres of mature woodland and farmland which is well used by local equestrians and dog walkers.

    The Property
    Offering a fabulous development opportunity,  this three-bedroom detached cottage is in need of complete modernisation and restoration having been neglected for a number of years. Whilst it does retain some period features most importantly it offers a blank canvas for a buyer to develop as they see fit. 
    In spite of its condition the house offers well-proportioned rooms, the two main rooms having bay windows, and it is easy to see how the house could be improved to create a stunning family home. In addition, the adjoining outhouses could be developed, subject to the necessary planning consent, to provide further accommodation.

    The Gardens
    The substantial gardens are found to the front and rear of the house and whilst difficult to inspect currently as they are overgrown they could be improved to provide a fantastic outside space ideal for children to enjoy. Contained within the gardens are a number of ex-military nissen buildings.

    For those with a requirement for further land a paddock of 1.76 Acres (0.71 Ha), which is located on the opposite side of the quiet lane, will be offered for sale as Lot Two. This paddock is currently totally overgrown but would offer the ideal space for grazing a horse or pony or other forms of stock.

    Development Clawback
    Lot 1 is sold subject to a residential and commercial development clawback stating that the vendors, or their heirs, will be entitled to 25% of the increase in value if residential or commercial planning permission is granted on the land within 30 years from the date of completion of the sale. This will not affect the development and reinstatement or extension of the original property, but any additional dwelling being built.

    Lot 2 is sold subject to a residential and commercial development clawback stating that the vendors, or their heirs, will be entitled to 25% of the increase in value if residential or commercial planning permission is granted on the land within 30 years.

    VIEWING
    To maintain and protect the privacy of the area please do not disturb the quiet enjoyment of the adjoining properties.
