Full description

An incredibly rare opportunity to acquire a single Building Plot with 'Approval of Planning Permission' to erect a Barn style dwelling & attached car port and store in this much favoured Cerne Valley village.

The Building Plot at present forms part of the garden to 4B Dorchester Road standing at the approach to Sydling St Nicholas village centre. With frontage to the village road, the plot is slightly L shaped with east aspect to the front and west aspect from the rear. Planning Permission Ref: WD/D/17/000448 was granted on the 13th April 2017 to plans drawn David Wren of Bradford Peverell to an interesting detached 'Barn style' design with brick and flint elevations under a natural slate roof. The proposed accommodation includes 3 bedrooms (1 on the ground floor) Sitting Room, Kitchen/Dining Room, double car port and store room. Representing a very rare opportunity to purchase an individual Building Plot in one of West Dorset's most favoured villages, the plot will be sold by informal tender.

Situated amongst some of Dorset's prettiest rolling countryside, this delightful rural village has a Church and public house.
The village Church of St Nicholas certainly dates back to the 17th Century with earlier origins and is described in Sir Nikolaus Pevsners' "Building of England Series: Dorset" as is much of the village. The village has indeed existed for a long time with evidence of Bronze and Iron Age settlements locally, but with its first documented record in the Winchester College archives dated 933. Sydling St Nicholas originally fell within the ownership of Milton Abbey until the dissolution of monastries after which the parish came under the control of Winchester College. The influence of The College on the village stretched over many centuries until quite recently. College House derives its name from this connection and was believed to house the collector of rents for the village.

The general character of the village is preserved in the main street with more recent architecture on the outskirts. Sydling St Nicholas has maintained its rural appeal in a modern age and remains very much unspoilt.

Despite its rural setting between Dorchester and Yeovil, the village is highly accessible with communications by road and rail. The A303, A30 and A37 are within relatively easy distance. International airports can be found at Southampton and Bournemouth. Cross channel services are available at Poole and Weymouth.

The vendor presently uses the land being be sold as garden.
