    About this property

    • Cadbury Camp Lane is a premier and exclusive private residential lane on the edge of the city known for its large high quality homes set in substantial private grounds.

      The existing chalet style home offers 2350 sq ft of light and smartly presented accommodation. Set at the head of a newly laid carriage driveway, the house is approached via a good size entrance porch leading into the hallway with the spacious sitting room directly opposite. A wood burning stove is set into the chimney breast and a wide picture window frames the delightful views across the rear grounds. There is a bright modern kitchen with adjoining dining room and utility room, an 18'10 conservatory and three ground floor bedrooms with a cloakroom and family bathroom also on the ground floor and two further bedrooms with an en suite on the first floor.

      The general proposals involve the demolition of the existing 1950's dwelling and surrounding outbuildings and the construction of a new period style dwelling with garaging and associated landscaping. The planning permission is for a new two storey, five bedroom early Georgian style home appropriate to the plot size and the surrounding dwellings. The site consists of a developable area of 0.36 hectares with an additional 0.69 hectares of woodland to the north of the site. It lies within the greenbelt but is not in a conservation area. The plans allowed for the onsite parking to be increased and a new garage with accommodation over. Full details are available on the planning portal (22/P/1240/FUL dated 2nd May 2023).

      A brief summary of the consented new property from the architects design statement is as follows:

      The primary entrance will lead into a large hallway with a sweeping cantilever staircase leading up the first floor. To the front of the property are principle dining areas and a large study for 2 persons providing direct access to the side garden.

      To the rear of the property is a generous kitchen/dining/dayroom adopting a contemporary use whilst retaining period features and proportions. A formal living area is also provided all of which offers access to the rear elevated terrace.
      To the west is the utility and ancillary areas leading into a small gymnasium and double garage all of which can be accessed by a side, secondary entrance.

      At first floor level a large 4 panel skylight will provide natural light to the core of the property with a generous principal suite occupying the entire rear façade and benefitting from the principal elevated views to the North with a small balcony with clean frameless glass. To the front of the property are 3 additional bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms and small dressing areas.

      A guest suite annexe with en-suite and dressing room is also provided over the garage and gymnasium and benefits from independent access via the utility.

    Over the years, I have been involved with may sales in this exceptional private lane and it should be noted that this represents one of the very few remaining opportunities to create a truly outstanding bespoke residence.
