Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Delightful rural building plot with planning permission for a contemporary house (with an alternative traditional design) in about 4 acres.


The building plot at Wickhams is located in a delightful rural situation to the northwest of the village of West Bergholt. West Bergolt has the usual village amenities including a village shop and post office, two public houses and a doctors' surgery. Colchester has a wide range of excellent educational, recreational and shopping facilities and for the commuter there is access to both Colchester station, which is on the north side of the town and provides a fast, regular rail service to London Liverpool Street, and onto the A12.


Planning permission (application no. 144681) for a "proposed replacement dwelling, associated parking, car port, and hard and soft landscaping" was granted on 24 June 2014. Plans submitted with the planning application are for a contemporary house of about 8,500 sq ft (see CGIs). The plans of this house show four/five bedrooms (four en suites), study/bedroom five and a family bathroom on the first floor, and on the ground floor a lounge/study/snug/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, entrance hall, cloakroom and games room, indoor pool, gym and cellar.

Subsequently a 'Preliminary Enquiry Application' was submitted on 13 June 2016 for "a single replacement dwelling with associated parking, triple cart lodge with store and landscaping" to a more traditional design of approximately 5,000 sq ft. The local Planning Officer has considered that the proposal is acceptable and should a formal planning application for the development be submitted, considers it likely that this would be looked upon favourably.

The site is approximately 4 acres (part of which is designated as agricultural) and adjoins open fields on three sides. (A further 20 acres of land is available.)

Mains water, electricity and private drainage.

Strictly by prior appointment with the sole agents Savills.
