FOR SALE BY PUBLIC AUCTION!!(unless previously sold) A single building plot in a cul de sac.

Planning permission for a detached house. 4 Bedrooms, 4 bathrooms/shower rooms (3 en suite), landing, reception hall, cloakroom, principal reception room, study, large open plan kitchen with dining area and family room, utility room, side lobby. Detached 2 car garage. Frontage about 42m x 32m average depth, about 0.095 hectares (0.23 acres)

Plot 2 Cutbush, Cutbush Lane East, Shinfield, Reading RG2 9AL*

DESCRIPTION/LOCATION: A single building plot with planning permission for a good sized and well proportioned family house, the accommodation of which is detailed below. Shinfield is at the heart of the thriving Thames Valley, close to the new Science Park of the University of Reading and well placed for access to the M4 (Junction 11) and to the south the M3 at Hook or Basingstoke.

Cutbush Lane East is a short cul de sac. The recently constructed Phase 1 of the Science Park referred to above, coincided with the building of the new eastern relief road for Shinfield. The building plot is in the cul de sac section of the long established road of Cutbush Lane.

This is an area of generally individual property and so good price comparisons are not always readily available. Nearby sales of estate houses have achieved prices of up to £850,000 - £900,000. Accordingly we believe an individual house in a generous plot and non-estate location, would be expected to achieve a higher price – buyers to make their own enquiries and of course the value will be affected by the specification and quality of construction.

*Land does not attract a postcode. The postcode given is for the neighbouring property. 

Well positioned on the southern outskirts of Reading, convenient for the University of Reading, Reading Town Centre, M4 access (Junction 11).
