Full Description

A rare opportunity to purchase a rural property with planning permission for further enlarging to create a seven bedroom property on a 3.326 acre plot.

The existing property comprises a modern detached three bedroom home, located in a lovely rural position with countryside views all around. The property has a small lake and the original, now derelict, pump house with footings for a swimming pool.

The planning permission is for the erection of a single storey rear and side extension with roof space over the sitting room. The Vale of the White Horse District Council planning application number is P14/V2876/HH and the planning permission is dated 17th February 2015. Copies are available from the selling agent. The extension is planned to provide a glazed walkway connecting the current dwelling to a games room with a home office, gym, changing rooms with a shower, three double bedrooms and three bathrooms. In addition, the permission allows for a first floor extension over the sitting room to provide an additional double bedroom with en suite facilities.

The existing accommodation comprises an entrance hall with cloakroom, sitting room with fireplace and wood burning stove, an open plan dining room, a separate study and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with built-in appliances, an electric Aga and a utility room. On the first floor is a master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The property has a good deal of character, particularly on the first floor where there are attractive vaulted ceilings and exposed timbers, and there is Travertine tiling to the ground floor area.

Outside, there is plenty of driveway parking. We understand that there is a right of access over a track to reach The Pump House for which the owners pay a 50% share of maintenance.


SERVICES AND TENURE We believe the property is served by mains electricity and water, with drainage to a private septic tank. Heating is by way of the oil-fired boiler. The Tenure is understood to be Freehold. The above should be verified by your Solicitor or Surveyor.
