Property description

Introduction A rare chance to acquire one of two superb building plots each approaching half an acre in area and positioned on the rural fringe of Grainthorpe village, with detailed planning permission for an impressive detached executive home as illustrated in the projected CGI images. The plot is presently part of a mature grass paddock backing onto open farmland and will be approached over a long shared private driveway from the lane.

This introduction and the particulars are intended to give a fair and substantially correct overall description for the guidance of the intending purchasers. No responsibility is to be assumed for the accuracy of individual items. Maps, plans and elevations are based on the approved Architect's drawings and together with aerial image demarcation are for identification purposes only and not to scale - they should be verified at the sale stage against the sale contract plan.

Directions Entering Grainthorpe along the A1031 road from the north (Wragholme Road), proceed to the first sharp right bend and bear straight ahead here along High Street - a small lane into the village centre. Continue until the Tudor style house "The Paddocks" is found on the left side. Viewing is strictly by appointment and on foot only over the right side of the Paddocks driveway and then between the outbuildings at the rear. The plots are then on the left.

Building Plot 1 - Description The plot is positioned to the rear of a substantial detached Tudor style house called The Paddocks and has, to date, been part of the well-tended grass paddocks of this property, enclosed by a variety of trees, hedges and fencing, with a number of ornamental shrubs and bushes. To the norteast, the current paddock borders open countryside stretching away towards the coast in the distance.

There is also a substantial fountain located within the area which will be occupied by plot 1 and this will be disconnected from the water supply of The Paddocks but left on site for the purchaser to reposition or remove as they prefer.

Plot 1 has an approximate area of 0.45-acre (subject to survey). Part of the rear boundary of plot 2 is formed by the Swine Dyke drain and Plot 2 includes a country footpath on the far side of the fencing and hedges. The planning conditions state that the private drainage systems for the two new houses will be required to discharge into this drain, and appropriate easements will be included in the sale contract where necessary to reach this drain. Easements will also be included for any services crossing the plots to retained land/buildings and for each of the new plots where their services cross the neighbouring plot or land owned by The Paddocks.

The vendor will concrete-pave the strip driveway specified in the planning permission over the area coloured brown on the site plan shown on the preceding page and the two plots will have a right of way over this driveway with or without vehicles to the area coloured blue. The blue area is part of Plot 1 and both Plot 2 and The Paddocks will have a right of way across this area, with or without vehicles.

Wayleaves, Easements, Covenants, Services and Rights of Way

The land is sold subject to, and with the benefit of, all existing wayleaves, easements and quasi easements and rights of way, whether mentioned in these particulars or not. The vendor will install service ducting along the driveway from the edge of the highway to the area-coloured blue with mains water electricity and BT cable for each plot connected.

The shared driveways will be subject to shared liability for maintenance according to user. The plot purchasers will be responsible for any damage caused to the driveway or ducted services caused by construction or other traffic to or from their plot and required to make good any such damage. 

NB. It will be a condition of sale that the new dwellings will be constructed within a specified time period to the approved design and any alterations to such design or construction of additional buildings within the grounds will be subject to the approval of the vendors or their successors in title, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld.  

Tenure The Plot is offered for sale freehold with vacant possession on completion. 

VAT It is not anticipated that VAT will be charged. However, should any sale of any part of the land or any rights attached to it become a chargeable supply for the purposes of VAT, such tax will also be payable by the purchaser(s) in addition to the contract price. 

Viewing Viewing is strictly by prior appointment through the selling agent.  

The Proposed Dwelling (Plot 1) (NB Approximate room sizes are shown on the floorplans below which are indicative of the room layout and not to specific scale, based upon the architect's approved drawings)

A glance at the CGI images will immediately indicate that this is an impressive, executive-style detached country home which features 2x two-storey gables projecting on the front elevation and a single storey rear wing. The house will have large windows from low level, allowing light to flood into the rooms and taking advantage of the outlook across the rural surroundings.

The accommodation will provide the following: 

Ground Floor Central main entrance with canopy porch over double doors, having double-glazed side panels into the:  

Entrance Hall A spacious reception area with a staircase and side screen or balustrade and leading up to a large gallery landing over. Double doors to the rear open into the living/dining kitchen and a side door allows access into the:  

Cloakroom/WC With ample space for a suite of low-level WC and wash hand basin.  

Living/Dining Kitchen An exceptionally spacious room with planned wall space for an extensive range of built-in base and wall units, island unit and appliances. There are bi-folding French doors to both the dining and seating areas of this room and two windows to the side elevation. Double doors open into the lounge and there is a connecting door into the: 

Utility Room With space for base/wall units and appliances and a door on the side elevation to outside.  

Lounge An extremely spacious room with two windows to the front elevation and bi-folding French doors opening onto the rear garden.  

Study/Bedroom 5 A versatile room positioned at the front of the house to the left of the entrance hall and having two windows to the front elevation.  

First Floor Spacious gallery landing with balustrade extending from the staircase around the stairwell and overlooking the entrance hall below.  

Master Bedroom A double bedroom positioned at the front of the house on the right side and having two windows to the front elevation and two doors leading to an ensuite dressing room with space for built-in furniture and an ensuite shower room. The latter can be fitted to the buyer's taste but has ample space for shower cubicle, WC and wash basin set into contemporary tiling and furniture. 

Guest Bedroom 2 A mirror image of the master bedroom with the same en suite shower room and dressing room. This bedroom also has two windows to the front elevation.  

Bedroom 3 and 4 Each of these is another spacious double bedroom, almost equal in size to the two main bedrooms and each also has two windows on the rear elevation.

First Floor  

Landing with door off to an under-eaves store cupboard at the rear and a further door to the: 

Cloakroom/WC To have a low-level WC and bracket wash hand basin.  

Games Room/Home Office Also accessed from the first-floor landing, this versatile room has three skylight windows to the front slope of the part sloping ceiling.  

Outside The spacious plot provides potential to create attractive landscape gardens of excellent size which will be mainly at the rear of the house, whilst to the front there is the scope to create a large forecourt for parking and turning whilst also giving access to the garage block. It is anticipated that the purchaser will wish to pave the area immediately around the house and create patio areas which will take advantage in particular of the afternoon and evening sun. The orientation of the plots also lends itself to the positioning of a summer house in the rear corner of the garden for the sun during earlier times of day.
