A detailed planning consent has been granted for a large detached house of approximately 2045sq.ft g.i.a. set in mature gardens of between a quarter and a fifth of an acre in a prime residential area. The house is traditional in style, with a garage, utility room, hallway, kitchen, living room, family room and study on the ground floor. The first floor consists of a landing, home office, or 4th bedroom, three further bedrooms, en-suite and a family bathroom. The house will have facing brick walls, plain concrete tiles, a timber front door and folding doors in the lounge. The house may be best suited to a self-builder, who should be exempt from any CIL charge, please check with the Local Authority.
The Site
The plot is approximately 910m2 which is between a quarter and a fifth of an acre, laid to lawn with mature indigenous trees set some distance from the house and well-established hedging. The plot will provide for further on-site parking in addition to the garage and a turning area. The plot will have its own access and a section of hedging will need to be removed to allow for this. The decision notice requires a scheme of landscaping and an Arboricultural method statement, whilst a large mature beech tree can remain; a sweet chestnut tree is in poor condition and may need removing. A 150mm diameter sewer pipe crossing the site will need to be diverted.
