About this property

  • This is a rare and exciting opportunity for a self-builder to undertake a bespoke project in a truly special, one off location, over looking Coppice lake and woodland beyond.

    There are 4 building plots available with outlined planning consent, all of which sit along the bank of Coppice Lake with pot sizes as follows;

    Plot 1 is set in 1.9 acres with 77 metres of lake frontage.
    Plot 2 is set in 0.85 acres with 34 metres of lake frontage.
    Plot 3 is set in 1 acre with 32 metres of lake frontage.
    Plot 4 is set in 1.3 acres with 45 metres of lake frontage.

    The size of plots 1 and 4 are negotiable and could have larger plots than noted above should a purchaser wish.

    We have been informed by the vendor that the outline planning consent is fairly open to the design of house and a floor area of between 3000sqft and 3500sqft could be achievable (subject to the necessary full planning consent).

    All four plots will be serviced with water and electricity prior to completion. In respect to drainage of the proposed dwellings, plot 3 is already connected to mains drainage, therefore, the other 3 plots can tap into this system or can make alternate arrangements by way of a sewage treatment tank or similar. There are to be no prior provisions for a gas supply made by the current owner, therefore should an incoming purchaser require a gas connection, these enquiries should be made directly to the utility supplier. We are of the opinion that air source or ground source heating, along with solar PV panels would be an excellent, energy efficient option for the proposed dwellings.

    PLANNING Outlined planning permission (reference AVA/2020/0782) was granted in 2021 by Amber Valley Borough Council for the construction of four detached dwellings, amendments were made to this planning application which can be found by using reference AVA/2021/0490. Details of the applications can be obtained from Amber Valley Borough Council planning portal at or from Savills upon request.

A truly unique opportunity to build your dream home in a lakeside setting.
