KLP are delighted to offer this fabulous development opportunity for 2 large detached houses to the market with the benefit of outline planning permission (Ref.13/0160/01). The site is situated at the end of an adopted, unclassified no-through road with only a footpath access on to the Alphin Brook to the north which gives access to Marsh Barton Industrial estate, the canal basin and River Exe beyond with pleasant footpaths and cycle paths to the Exeter Quayside in one direction and Double Locks, Turf Locks and the historic port of Topsham in the other direction. The site is only approximately 200m from Alphington local centre which benefits from a range of local amenities including a post office, primary school, church, garage, public house and two major food stores, and there is a regular bus service into the City centre.

The site is part of the garden of No.5 Clapper brook Lane and is relatively level, extends to approximately 0.2 hectares (0.49 acres) and has a separate existing access gate from Clapperbrook Lane. The proposed plans that have been submitted for the reserved matters planning application show two large detached houses of circa 241m2 (2,594 sqft) each (excluding garages). Both properties will be set within generously sized plots and front Clapper Brook Lane.


Consistently rated as one of the best places to live in the UK, Exeter offers a high quality of life and a low crime rate. With a population of about 120,000, Exeter combines modern facilities with a sense of the past, where cafés, restaurants, pubs and modern shops mix with historic buildings, including the Cathedral, consecrated in 1133 and rebuilt in the late medieval period, there is also the Guildhall which is claimed to be the oldest civic working building in the country. Communication links are excellent with the city being close to the M5, A30/A38 into Cornwall, mainline rail stations and Exeter International Airport.


Exeter City Council granted outline planning permission (Ref.13/0160/01) for two detached dwellings (all matters reserved for future consideration) at 5 Clapperbrook Lane, Exeter, EX2 8TE on 5th November 2013. There is an associated Section 106 legal agreement dated 17th October 2013 relating to this planning permission which requires a highways contribution in the sum of £8,050 (indexed linked) which is payable upon commencement of development. A reserved matters planning application has been submitted (Ref.16/1343/02). Copies of plans, planning permission and S106 agreement are available from the agents.


The site is being offered for sale by private treaty with offers invited in the region of £480,000.


Interested parties should make and rely upon their own enquiries of the relevant services providers.
