£350,000 Sold STC
We are delighted to offer the opportunity to acquire a unique development site in a private setting less than half a mile from Fairford's historic town centre, where there are good local retail, leisure and community facilities and educational establishments.
The land was formerly the tennis courts for the nearby property Wick House and is surrounded by a high garden wall of historic interest which gives it privacy and an attractive sense of enclosure.
Access into the development site will be gained via a new entrance to be formed by the purchaser within this stone boundary wall.
The site includes an additional piece of land adjoining the tennis courts and is approached via a private lane from the A417 London Road.
The total plot area amounts to approximately 0.35 acres as shown on our OS plan within these sales particulars strictly for identification purposes only.
There is a detailed consent for two four bedroom detached dwellings each of 1700 sq.ft. both with rear gardens, garages and parking.
All viewings must be by prior appointment only and no informal visits are permitted.
Suggested parking for viewing purposes is in East End or near the Railway Inn Public House opposite.
The plot is situated on the edge of the popular town of Fairford surrounded by residential properties. Fairford has facilities for everyday use including shops and offices, a highly regarded primary and secondary school and other community facilities. The town sits upon the river Coln and does attract many tourists to both the river and the parish church which has a noted stained-glass window.
Fairford is some seven miles east of Cirencester and about ten miles from Swindon where the M4 motorway can be joined. Mainline trains are also available at Swindon, as well as from Kemble about eight miles from the town.
It is very rare that development sites such as this become available in this location and attractive setting.
