About this property

  • Savills are delighted to offer for sale this incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a substantial plot for redevelopment.

    Built circa 1920's, this gated detached house is set well back from the road. The property boasts many character features but is now in need of an extensive and complete renovation. Alternatively, subject to planning, this could make a wonderful blank canvas for a buyer to knock down the existing property and build their dream home in a sought after and convenient location.

    The accommodation is arranged over two floors, spanning 2343 square feet and sits on a plot of approximately one acre. Currently the plot is very overgrown however there is amazing potential to open the site up to create useable garden area to the front and rear.

    Offered for sale for the first time in 39 years, this plot and property must be viewed to be fully appreciated. A site plan has been added to the listing for indicative purposes only.

    Opportunities like this are becoming increasingly rare and for that reason we anticipate that this property will be popular. If you are interested, please contact the office for an accompanied viewing.

This is such a great location, I would love to be able to build my forever family home here. It is such a convenient location for the beach, dog walks through the chine and much more.
