Blockley lies in the fold of the Cotswold Hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is a highly regarded and thriving village and provides a Post Office, village store, two hotels, public house, a medieval church, school and sports club. The village is situated between the old market towns of Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh which both provide a wide range of day to day facilities. Moreton-in-Marsh has a mainline rail station serving London Paddington. The important surrounding centres of Cirencester, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham are all within reasonable distance and provide further cultural and recreational facilities, together with excellent schooling. The property lies within the catchment area for Chipping Campden school.

For those interested in country pursuits the general area provides excellent riding and walking within countryside designated as a special landscape area. There are excellent sporting opportunities in the region, including golf at nearby Broadway with further courses at Naunton Downs, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham. National Hunt Racing at Cheltenham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Worcester and Polo at Cirencester. Other sporting venues include Premiership rugby at Bath, Bristol and Gloucester, County Cricket at Bristol and the annual Cheltenham cricket festival is held in July. Stratford-upon-Avon is home to the World renowned Royal Shakespeare Company.

There are many historic houses in the immediate locality including the famous Hidcote Gardens, in the ownership of the National Trust, and the highly regarded Kiftsgate Court Gardens.

Views over village and towards countryside.

About 0.25 of an acre.

The building plot forms part of land owned by Thames Water Utilities Limited. It benefits from existing (although presently blocked off) access off Chapel Lane which was previously used to access the depot.

The north western boundary is woodland, the north eastern edge is wooded and slopes away down towards the church. The southern boundary is shared with Bell Bank whilst the south western boundary is formed by existing green space off Chapel Lane.

Detailed planning consent exists to create an attractive three storey house to be constructed of natural stone mainly under a cardinal stone roof with painted timber window frames and the garage being timber walls under a natural blue slate roof.

The plot is set behind an attractive wide verge with mature trees both within and forming boundaries to the site behind a stone wall.

The plot will appeal to owner occupiers, small builders and developers.
