One of the most exciting residential development opportunities to come to the auction market for some time, comprising a building plot of nearly half an acre with the benefit of Planning Permission for a quite stunning contemporary three storey home of over 400 sq.m. (4,000 sq.ft.).

The site, which enjoys a delightful south-facing wooded valley setting above Shorton Manor, provides a high degree of privacy in a readily accessible and particularly well thought of residential area located between 1-1.5 miles from the beach and the town centre.

While some will be struck by the possibility of creating the eye-catching consented home there is potential for a more modest individual scheme or, maybe even two smaller dwellings, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
