Other points

Lot 2 edged in blue

This comprises 2 potential plots with separate access to Helliers Lane. The boundaries are edged in blue. The plans propose a house on plot 1 with 159 sq.ms and 177 sq.ms on plot 2. Floorplans are available on request. NB The Lot is also ideal as one large plot for an individual house.


In recent years the owners have investigated the possibility of obtaining planning to build 3 houses in the gardens of Glendale House.


Plans have been prepared by a well regarded local architect and planning consultant. An application was submitted in November 2020. It was withdrawn as the owners were advised they should also submit a “bat survey”. This survey has been scheduled to take place between May and October 2021 by the current owners in order to enable a prospective buyer of the plot to resubmit the plans before the end of the calendar year. Because they need to relocate the owners have decided to place the property on the market at this time without a planning decision but with the belief the proposed planning consents would be granted in due course.

Costings of services

Costings for the connections of mains services have been obtained. Details on written request.


Attached are plans showing the site and the proposed plots. The red edging indicates the house and gardens inclusive of plot 3. Floorplans are available on request.
