A unique development opportunity - a pair of attractive semi-detached cottages situated in open countryside with outstanding views to front and rear, with planning consent and plans prepared for a substantial extension to both properties with each offering four bedrooms, en-suite shower room and family bathrooms and featuring on the ground floor a large open plan living/dining/kitchen with further snug, study, cloak room and utility room. Both properties will also have off-road parking and detached garages and enlarged gardens with south facing views to the rear over paddocks and open countryside. An ideal development project for a developer/builder or for those wishing to build two properties for extended families or for investment. A copy of the plans and elevations are available upon request. Each property will offer approximately 1,450 square feet of accommodation plus garage.
The Properties This pair of semi-detached cottages are effectively a mirror image of each other and currently offer two bedrooms and two reception rooms with off-road parking and gardens. Planning consent has been granted to substantially extend the properties to provide two superb four bedroom family homes featuring open plan kitchens and four bedrooms and en-suite shower room and family bathroom. Each cottage will offer 135 sq. m. and benefit from attractive open views to front and rear. Planning consent was granted on the 3rd May 2018. Planning Application Number 17/08154/FUL.
The project offers a developer or builder an ideal opportunity to construct a home to live in whilst developing a second property to sell or let and would also suit extended families or investment purchasers.
Note Both of these properties are virtually identical in layout. The accommodation below is for number 2 Abbots Oak Cottages and there are only minor differences on the first floor in the adjacent cottage, number 1, the bathroom is served off the main bedroom and not the landing.
