Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Planning Permission was granted on 7 August 2018 for the construction of a fine 4 bedroom Detached House (indicative plans included later in this brochure) the purchaser of the plot also having to provide parking spaces for Nos. 94 & 95 School House Cottages, which lie to the north of the Building Plot. As is usual, there are a number of conditions attached to the Planning Permission, together with following ‘informatives’, issued by Simon Withers, Development Manager, and it is essential that these conditions be read in conjunction with the brochure in order to gain a thorough understanding of the responsibilities of the purchaser. The Plot is Freehold, and mains water and electricity are both available, but all arrangements for access thereto will be the responsibility of the purchaser. It should be noted that the village of Peterstow has neither mains gas nor mains drainage.


Location & Description
The site now being offered for sale occupies a beautifully secluded, slightly elevated site just beyond the north western extent of glorious Peterstow Common, the south western boundary of the building plot lying directly adjacent to part of the Common. The whole area stands within the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Vehicular access to the plot is from the ancient, single width, Lowcop Lane to the west of the site, and the car parking area currently utilised by Nos. 94 & 95 School House Cottages will in fact form part of the building plot, as will the tree planted area immediately adjacent to the south west boundary. The principal facades of the proposed house are to the south east and south west, and the site is gently sloping. This wonderful location thus has the merit of being within walking distance of all village facilities, yet being screened by the nearby mature trees and hedging.

The village of Peterstow is one of the consistently sought after villages in south Herefordshire, and the reasons for this are many. There is an excellent, central, post office, shop & off licence, two outstanding pubs, The Yew Tree & The Red Lion, and a beautifully set little church which was recently part converted to provide many of the facilities of a village hall. There is also a regular bus service to Ross, Hereford & Gloucester and an infectious village spirit. The central village common is also a much loved village feature, and used over the years for a wide variety of leisure and other purposes. For those who enjoy walking, there are many scenic walks in the immediate vicinity. Both golf and shooting are available locally, as is canoeing on the River Wye. Educationally, there are first class schools in both Hereford and Ross-on-Wye, with many nearby villages offering good primary schools.

For those concerned with strategic location and accessibility, the M50 motorway, accessed some 5 minutes away on the outskirts of Ross-on-Wye, enables first class communication into the National Motorway Network.

History & Context
With the adjacent cottage being numbered 94, one might well think that the plot is adjacent to a large housing estate. This is absolutely not the case! School House Cottages were once part of a historic rural estate in Herefordshire. The numbering of the various holdings covered a large part of the county of Herefordshire, hence No. 94 being the adjacent cottage, of which there are only two in this location!

Planning Permission
A Planning Application No. 182173 Grid Reference 356288:224594, was made on 11 June 2018 on ‘Land South of 94 School House Cottages, Lowcop Lane, Peterstow, Herefordshire, description of the Application being ‘Proposed 4 Bed Dwelling plus Parking for 94 & 95 School House Cottages’. Permission was granted for same on 7 August 2018 with, as usual, a list of conditions. A restrictive covenant will be placed on the property restricting the use to a single private dwelling house as detailed on Planning Permission 182173. A further restrictive covenant will require the development to be carried out strictly in accordance with the approved plans and Planning Permission.

The Planning Permission, conditions, and notes issued by Simon Withers, Development Manager, form an integral part of this brochure, and it is essential that they be read in conjunction with the brochure in order to gain a further understanding of the responsibilities of the purchaser. A PDF of the Planning Permission and plans are available on line, as are the Auction Conditions.

Furthermore, it should be noted that one of the conditions of sale imposed by the Vendor will be that the purchaser will be required to construct parking spaces for Nos. 94 & 95 School House Cottages on the Vendor’s retained land and such works will need to be completed within 6 months from the date of completion of the purchase of the building plot, and prior to the commencement of the construction of the new dwelling. A temporary right to park will be granted over the Property for the benefit of 94 & 95 School House Cottages until the new parking area has been completed.
