Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Opportunities to purchase a very special individual building plot are quite rare, and as estate agents our experience is that they come onto the open market in such very small numbers. However when they do, and when they are clearly out of the top drawer, you have to usually act quite quickly to avoid disappointment.

Wallace Jones Estate Agents are delighted to be instructed to offer for sale by public auction a superb single plot situated on Wards Lane, Breaston within the Conservation Area, and very close to the heart of this truly desirable and popular Derbyshire village.

The plot has the benefit of detailed planning consent granted by Erewash Borough Council, under reference ERE 1111/0012. This was applied for as “Land West of 8 Wards Lane, Breaston” and was granted consent on 24th February 2012. There is a lot of useful information relating to the development on the councils website at We would refer you to look at this, and for those not able to directly access this information themselves online, a copy of everything relating to the recent consent is available for inspection only, at our office on Derby Road in Long Eaton.

The plot is shown on the enclosed plan with these details, which offers over 100 foot of frontage to Wards Lane, and in excess of 2000 square yards, which is a little under half an acre in total. A new access is to be created from Wards Lane serving the plot, with the current existing driveway being reserved for the sole use of the existing house situated at 8 Wards Lane. The proposed house incorporates the old building currently on site and of course the precise layout of accommodation internally could be amended to an individual’s requirement. The successful purchaser within six months from the day of completion will be responsible for the erection of either a 6 foot close boarded fence or brick wall from Wards Lane to the rear of the site, forming the boundary to number 8 Wards Lane. The owner of this next door house is prepared to make a 50% contribution towards the cost of this work if carried out in conjunction with him, for the benefit of both parties.


From our office in Long Eaton proceed west along Derby Road passing Trent College school, continuing across the roundabout and over the M1 motorway bridge into the village of Breaston. Take the right turning immediately after the Bulls Head public house into Risley Lane, followed by the third left into Wards Lane. The plot is situated on the right hand side, identified by the agents For Sale board.


Contracts and conditions of sale for the land will be available for inspection by all interested parties 7 days prior to the auction date at our office on Derby Road, Long Eaton. The legal pack will also be made available online the week before the auction. Prospective purchasers are reminded that they are deemed to buy with full knowledge of the contracts and conditions of sale whether the same have been inspected or not.


The plot of land is to be offered for sale by public auction to be held at The Village Hotel, Chilwell, Nottingham NG9 6DL on Wednesday 30th May 2012 commencing at 7pm prompt. There will also be a number of other lots to be sold on the evening. We have instructions from our clients that no offers to purchase the land will be considered prior to the auction, where it will be sold subject to a sensible reserve price in turn to the highest bidder.
