Full description

House and land off Leek Road, Buxton with residential development potential comprising 2.57 acres

Location 
The land is located off the Leek Road (A53) in Buxton. When travelling along the Leek Road (A53) towards Buxton, after passing the junction with the A54 Macclesfield Main Road, the property is situated approximately ¼ of a mile further down the A53 on the left, as indicated by our ?For Sale' board. The property includes the now derelict detached residential property, No, 54 Leek Road.

Description 
The property comprises 2.57 acres and is accessed directly off the A53 Leek Road. The site has tremendous views to the West towards Burbage Edge and is located only a short distance from Buxton Country Park. The property comprises an attractive detached residential property (No. 54, Leek Road) that is in a state of disrepair, together with two grass fields and outbuildings. The majority of the property is detailed within the Strategic Housing and Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) of the High Peak Borough Council, with an estimated housing capacity of 12 units. The reference number for the site is HP031. Currently it is classified as ?Not Currently Developable'. Reasons cited are that this is due to ?topographical and access constraints.? The Vendors have carried out topographical and other surveys that can be made available by CD to interested parties. In the Vendors opinion the land would be suitable for development that could perhaps be inspired by recent development...
