Details

DESCRIPTION/LOCATION:  The site falls wholly within The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  The development as proposed anticipates a pair of semi-detached dwellings, each with their own parking and private amenity spaces.  It is our opinion the proposed style is such that with little if any required changes to the elevations the property could alternatively be developed to provide an imposing and individual family home.  The site area is approximately quarter of an acre. 

 

Woodcote is a popular village generally accessed from the A4074 which runs between the larger commercial centres of Reading to the south and Oxford to the north.  There is a number of nearby villages and towns including Pangbourne, Goring and Wallingford.  The M4 is accessible on the western outskirts of Reading and the M40 to the north-east by Watlington.  Train services are available perhaps most importantly from Pangbourne and Henley where there are links to commuter services to London and the proposed Crossrail service.

 

ACCOMMODATION:  The accommodation briefly comprises (all dimensions are approximate):

 

PLOT 1 (Left hand)

Master Suite:

  Bedroom, Dressing Room, Shower Room

Bedroom 2 

Bedroom 3

Bathroom

Landing

 

Entrance Hall

Cloakroom

Open-plan Lounge/Dining Room overlooking rear garden with Kitchen Area at the front

  Bedroom, Shower Room

Bedroom 2

Through Lounge/Dining Room

Outside:

The proposal anticipates each property will have 3 or 4 car parking spaces at the front and there will be a bin store.  If the property is developed in accordance with the planning permission the rear garden can be divided as required.

 

TENURE:  Freehold with vacant possession upon completion of the purchase.

 

LOCAL AUTHORITY:  South Oxfordshire District Council 135 Eastern Avenue Milton Park Abingdon OX14 4SB.

 

TOWN & COUNTRY PLANNING:  The site has the benefit of planning permission Reference P17/S3283/FUL to demolish the existing bungalow and construct two houses.  The original property, originally built as a timber hut for the adjoining general store, has been in residential occupation for some years with 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom with WC.

 

CIL:  If the existing planning permission is implemented there is a proposed Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) of £22,620.  This is based upon an increase in the floor area of 145 sq m and a CIL rate of £156 per sq m.

 

OVERAGE:  No overage provision if the property is developed in isolation to any other development (ie as proposed or varied with 1, 2, or even more properties).  However land further to the east has been allocated for residential development under the Woodcote Neighbourhood Plan (Sites 01, 02) and these schemes are currently being progressed.  If this site forms part of a larger development including neighbouring land, the current seller will be entitled to 25% of any increase in the value of this land as a result of obtaining a more valuable planning permission.  The base value will be the sale price of this contract or the sale price assuming the planning permission referred to in this contract, whichever is the higher – the valuation date being the date on which the planning permission is granted.  Further details are included in the legal pack and more particularly the draft transfer.

 

THE CONDITIONS OF SALE:  are included in the Legal and Information Pack available for inspection at the Auctioneer’s prior to the Auction Sale and online at www.martinpole.co.uk.  A copy of the Conditions of Sale will be attached to these Particulars to form part of the Contract.
