Property Description

A rectangular plot of c.0.18 acres located on the south eastern edge of Nether Westcote, a picturesque village located mid-way between Burford and Stow-in-the-Wold on the Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire border, with detailed planning consent for a 5 bedroom detached dwelling.

A rectangular plot of c.0.18 acres located on the south eastern edge of Nether Westcote, a picturesque village located mid-way between Burford and Stow-in-the-Wold on the Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire border.

Located just off the village lane, the plot is a largely flat and level with its boundaries being a metalled green lane/bridleway to the west, open fields to the north, a former farm building to the east beyond which are rural views and a small copse to the south beyond which is further farmland.

The views to the north/northeast are over the Evenlode Valley and the distant wooded heights of the Wychwood Forest.

The plot includes some attractive mature trees and low level walls. An old workshop building is currently on the site for which consent to demolish is included in the planning approval. The full extent of the plot includes a track to the front over which there is a right of way to the adjacent former farm building. This is shown more clearly in the accompanying site location plans.

The planning permission is for a detached 5 bedroom property to be constructed in Cotswold stone under natural slate tiles.  The chimney is to be of brickwork and the windows of heritage green wood effect UPVC.

Approached under an open porch, the front door would open into a full depth hallway off which there would the triple aspect living room with fireplace and double doors to the rear into the garden area. Also off the hall would be a small storage cupboard, downstairs cloakroom and then double doors opening into the kitchen/breakfast room with a widow over the sink to the side and a further set of glazed double doors opening out to the rear. A connecting door into the utility room to the front of the house with an external side door completes the downstairs.

Stairs down to a lower ground floor providing ancillary space with some natural light through glazed walkways above.

The stairs in the hallway would rise up to the first floor with again a full depth landing off which would be the 4 bedrooms -  one with an en-suite - and a family shower/ bathroom.

Stairs up to the second floor with a 5th bedroom, bathroom and small study.

The position of the house on the plot allows for most of the garden to be at the rear, meaning it will be very private and allowing great flexibility over how it could be landscaped. The far end of the garden enjoys the best views across the Evenlode Valley beyond.

Detailed planning consent was granted on the 21st March 2018 (Ref:  17/05031/FUL).
