Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated at the end of a no-through lane on the very edge of this desirable village, a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial building plot extending to approximately 0.61 acres with delightful elevated views over a brook and paddocks beyond. A 1960's small detached house on the plot is severely fire damaged and requires demolition to make way for a new house. The sloping nature of the site lends itself to a substantial split level family home, possibly three storey with lower ground floor rooms opening onto the garden. With mains water, electricity and drainage connected to the property and gas available in School Lane, the property offers an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a substantial and delightfully situated plot within a stunning semi-rural location.


The sought after village of South Croxton is located within east Leicestershire and is well known for its popularity in terms of convenience for ease of access to the centres of Leicester, Loughborough, Melton Mowbray, Oakham, Uppingham and Market Harborough, as well as some of the areas most attractive rolling countryside with many scenic country walks and golf courses. Rutland Water with its fishing, sailing and cycling pursuits is only approximately half an hour's drive away. South Croxton also offers typical local village amenities including a Public House, a village Church and a riding school, with more comprehensive facilities available at nearby Queniborough and Syston.


The Property 
Situated amongst a handful of delightful thatched and period cottages at the very end of School Lane in a stunning landscaped plot extending to approximately 0.6 acres, this small detached 1960's home was subject to a devastating fire in February 2016 which has now rendered it uninhabitable and therefore ripe for demolition and redevelopment. The plot therefore provides a discerning purchaser the opportunity to acquire a substantial building plot with obvious potential for a substantial detached family home which with the added benefit of the sloping nature of the land affords an opportunity to build a contemporary split-level property, the height of the existing roof ridge suggesting perhaps three storeys could be possible (subject to any necessary consents/approvals). Purchasers are advised to make enquires of the local planning authority (Charnwood Borough Council) as to the development possibilities as offers are not invited on a 'subject to planning' basis at the pr (truncated)

The Tender Process 
All offers are invited in writing in an envelope clearly marked 'Tender - 39 School Lane, South Croxton' to be received at the agents offices in a sealed envelope by 12 noon on Thursday, 15 September 2016. The tenders will be opened by the executor acting for the estate. Purchasers should indicate whether the purchase is subject to the sale of any other property or assets and whether any mortgage would be required. A specialist 'Design and Build' mortgage product would be required as the existing property is clearly unmortgageable in its current state.
