THE PROPERTY

An exceptional opportunity to build an eco-friendly house on a green field site within a stone's throw of the River Severn but within easy commuting distance of Cheltenham, Bristol and Worcester; junction 13 of the M5 is less than 10 minutes' drive away. The remaining plot measure approximately 1.7 acres and is sold with full building regulation approval; a purchaser would be in a position to start building immediately on completion and the plot is priced accordingly. Outline building costs have been drawn up and are available for inspection but are subject to each buyer's specification. The plot allows for a build of a single storey property of approximately 3,600 sq. ft. designed with sustainability in mind. There are substantial insulation levels obtained from the timber frame construction and a heat recovery system, regulating comfort levels and constant hot water. The plans allow for a back-up system of underfloor heating generated by an air or ground source heat pump. Electricity requirements will, primarily, be via a roof photovoltaic system. It is also planned, via the green energy produced, to allow for a charging point for a small electrical car. Proposed materials include: part stone part rendered exterior walls, aluminium triple glazed windows and matching extruded aluminium rainwater goods, all of a simple design and detailing synonymous with modern design and eco credentials. The dwelling has been designed to be landscaped so as to be partially hidden from the road and to benefit from the most beautiful views towards the River Severn. The plans are available for inspection. Note alternative designs have been approved by Stroud District Council at the pre-application stage. These are also available for inspection; however it would be for the purchaser to take these through to formal planning approval should they wish to opt for one of these alternative plans. Note: a) The vendor will reserve a twelve foot wide access route on the western boundary to facilitate maintenance of her retained land. The vendor is happy to discuss joint venture proposals with prospective purchasers. (Please note: the images of the house are CGIs.)
