Building plot with full planning to build contemporary 4 bed home in highly affluent location.
Regan & Hallworth are delighted to offer a rare and unique opportunity to purchase a building plot extending to just over 1/4 acre with full planning to erect a distinctive architect designed four bed home in one of West Lancashire's most sought after locations.
Planning Permission has been granted (West Lancs Ref 2020/0514/FUL) to construct a single storey, four-bedroom dwelling within the grounds of Charlesbye Farm, accessible via a private tree-lined driveway serving both Charlesbye Farm and the neighbouring properties just off the highly affluent Greetby Hill & Dark Lane.
The property will have its own private access to the site created by way of a new opening adjacent to an existing brick wall and mature chestnut tree, which has a Tree Preservation Order.
The dwelling, as proposed, has been designed to ensure minimum impact on the character of the site and is single storey, with a combination of pitched slate roofs and a flat "green" roof over the area of the proposed lounge ensuring that its character fits well in its location and the property has minimum impact on the lives of the current owners and their close neighbours.
The interior features four bedrooms, two bathrooms plus a stylish open plan design with the kitchen, dining and living area all situated overlooking and opening into the new extensive south facing gardens with greenbelt borders to the easterly boundary. The planning also includes a spacious integral garage.
The external walls of the new building will be faced in sustainable timber shingles, again to reflect the established wooden nature of the site. The vendor and architect of the site has also incorporated the specification to be highly insulated, using SIPP or timber framed construction, which, as proposed, will minimise construction time
The vendors will happily negotiate with the new buyers over erecting a new boundary closest to Charlesbye Farm. The specification of the dwelling, as proposed is also to include a range of photovoltaic roof panels in the south facing pitch of the roof, with also the provision for a ground or air source heat pump system for underfloor heating.
We understand gas, water and electricity services are currently available to the adjacent Charlesbye Farm and can be readily extended to the new property.
Foul drainage is also by way of connection to the existing mains system located to the southern boundary of the site.
The site enjoys woodland and greenbelt aspects yet is within easy walking distance to the train station and thriving market town centre of Ormskirk. The access road is owned by Stocks Hall Care Homes, who also own the site of the former Hettinga House Hospice, and they have Planning Permission to redevelop that site, using the private driveway as an exit route. A right of way has already been approved for the proposed property.
