About this property

  • A rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a property with planning permission for redevelopment. Currently a small bungalow with outbuildings, Whinridge, was for many years, a family smallholding growing flowers and vegetables. The bungalow is now in poor condition and many of the outbuildings have collapsed. The property is approached off a private unmade lane leading off Holt Road, with a long frontage onto Holt Road on one side, and to the Holt Heath Nature Reserve on the opposite side. Whinridge enjoys a delightful secluded setting, and the planned new house has been orientated to benefit from glorious views south across the heath if desired.

    Planning consent has been granted for the demolition of the bungalow and outbuildings, and the erection of a substantial new family house of approximately 2550 ft2, to include four reception areas, four bedrooms, three bath/ shower rooms. In addition there is permission for a detached garage and workshop block of approx. 785 ft2. Full details of the permission can be obtained on the Dorset Council website using the following link;

    2. Interested parties should make their own enquiries as to the availability and suitability of services to the property
    3. The bungalow and the outbuildings are in a poor condition, and the grounds are extremely overgrown. Visitors should take great care when walking around the site.

    We are advised that water and electricity were connected to the bungalow. Interested parties must make their own enquiries and satisfy themselves as to the availability and suitability of services for the new development.
