Multiple Building Plot

Wanborough, Swindon
Detailed planning consent has been applied for to erect two three bed homes of approximately 134sq.m and 160sq.m with gardens and off street parking. Given that the planning application has not yet been passed, the seller is expecting offers to be made subject to planning.

The plans for both plots indicate a spacious, open plan kitchen dining room, large living room, utility room, cloakroom and atrium to the ground floor. Stairs lead to the first floor which has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is ensuite.

The houses have been designed to be in keeping with and sensitive to the existing village location. Facing materials will be orange-red brickwork, chalk-coloured rough texture render), Natural Grey Slate, Plain clay tiles and flush-casement windows. Details will include simple corbels to chimneys, brick plinths, arches over windows, wooden bargeboards and stone sills.

The plots are entered from the south by private gates and each has more than sufficient parking space for two vehicles including turning space.

The Site
The site is approximately 900sq.m with good access from the road via existing vehicle access.

The existing scrub planting that characterises the site will be replaced with native-species hedgerows around the south, east and northern boundaries. The intention is to introduce hard & soft landscaping that is designed to be simple and to reflect the semi-rural location and setting of the application site .

The following reports have been requested by the planning authority and will be made available in due course:
• Topographical survey to inform a drainage strategy.
• Ecological appraisal.
• Contamination report.
