Finding the right place

Single Building Plot
Guide Price £400,000
A detailed planning consent has been granted for a split-level and fairly contemporary, large detached three- bedroom house on a generous plot in a Cotswold conservation area, within the AONB. The new house has a gross internal area of approximately 1800sq.ft. The ground floor has a porch, lobby, hall WC, utility room, kitchen / dining room, lounge and a study / third bedroom. The first floor has a landing, two further bedrooms and two En-suites. The house will have a mixture of natural stone walls, render and timber boarding. Stone roof tiles will be complemented with some zinc roofing and skylights on the single storey element and zinc roofing on the porch. The new house will have gardens and amenity space to the front and rear and will be screened by the existing boundary vegetation and mature trees. The plot will have two on-site parking spaces and its own vehicle access.
The Site
The plot is approximately one third of an acre. The existing access will need to be slightly widened to create a 3.5m width access, with the wooden gates to be removed. The driveway into the plot will be of no-dig permeable asphalt surfacing. One tree will need to be removed. An Arboricultural Impact Assessment and an Ecological Appraisal have been completed. The plot is some 8 metres west of the host property and the boundary finishes at the tree (pictured), to the rear of the plot before the shed. There is a small post in the ground on the plot to also denote the boundary, which runs south from the tree and then kinks in towards the host property by about a meter. There will be some digging out required, but the new house is designed to work within the landscape.
The Area
The plot is less than a mile from the town centre in a desirable location. The town is on the edge of the Wychwood Forest and less than 18 miles north of Oxford. Local amenities include cafes, shops, pubs, post office, banks, chemist, as well as sporting amenities including cricket, bowls and football clubs. The town also hosts a monthly market and various festivals in the summer. The Wychwood Golf Club in Chipping Norton is nearby, as is a 100- acre Country Club and a National Nature Reserve. Cycle routes include the Cotswold Line to Oxford and the 27- mile Wychwood Loop. Walks can be taken in the Forest of Wychwood and on the Oxfordshire Way, amongst others. There is an hourly train service to Oxford as well as to London Paddington. The local primary and secondary schools are rated as Good by Ofsted, independent education is offered at Park School and Kingham Hill School. Chipping Norton is a Cotswold market town, some 18 miles north-west of Oxford. The town has a theatre, pubs, shops and supermarkets. Literary and music festivals are held in the town. Local attractions include Blenheim Palace, Rousham House and Garden and the ancient Rollright Stones, Burford is also nearby.
The site has access to all main services excluding gas. We would advise interested parties to make their own enquiries with regard to services prior to exchange of contracts.
The plot can be viewed on an open-viewing basis in restricted weekday hours, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can park your car at the new entrance to the plot, on the roadside outside of the wooden gate, as shown in the pictures. You can then enter the plot on foot through this gate. Please do not drive through this gate.
