Full description

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a waterfront site on the River Itchen. The property, which extends to 0.144 acres, is level, mainly surfaced, with a steep vehicle driveway from Whitworth Crescent. We understand there is water, electricity and pumped drainage but this should be checked by interested parties. There is a portacabin on the site that is included. The property benefits from a substantial quay wall which could be used for mooring vessels and/or the ability to install pontoons.
The neighbouring properties are a mix of private boat yards, moorings, summerhouses and lifestyle plots.
There is a current mooring licence from the Crown Estate at £1,425 per annum although this would need to be renegotiated by a new purchaser and the licence fee will depend on the number/extent of moorings. Further enquiries should be made to the Crown Estate agents, Knight Frank.
Planning Permission: We have made on line enquiries of Southampton CC Planning and permission was granted in 1998 for "Construction of a replacement building to provide boatyard facilities and formation of a retaining wall to roadside bank" (Ref: 98098/11853/E) and in 1997 for "Refurbishment & repair of existing quay wall & installation of replacement pontoons" (Ref: 970438/11853/E). We do not believe that residential uses will be permitted.
