*A STUNNING RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT SITE WITHIN AN EDWARDIAN PARKLAND SETTING OFFERING RENOVATION, CONVERSION AND FIVE NEW BUILD PLOTS* The launch of Wood Burcote Court Development Site offers developers the opportunity to acquire a unique and individual piece of real estate with the prospect of creating both a lasting legacy and generating profit. The site occupies an unrivalled setting within the mature grounds of Wood Burcote Court, which is a classical Arts and Crafts House bordering Edwardian Parkland with grounds totalling 3.01 acres. The Parkland surrounding is being developed sympathetically by Redrow who have created a highly desirable residential location in a Parkland setting. The main house and conversion will be accessed from Redrow's service road on the north western boundary with the five building plots accessed off Besses Lane via a private gated drive. WOOD BURCOTE COURT - HOUSE WEST AND EAST This period country house enjoys a wonderful setting protected by mature landscaped grounds that surround it on all sides. In its heyday it would have sat within the heart of the Parkland and fortunately the Parkland feel still remains. The house, extending to just short of 5,700 square feet of accommodation over two floors retains all of its period charm and with renovation and modernisation could be restored to its former glory. The formal grounds which would extend to approximately 1.40 acres include a croquet lawn and tennis court set amongst a magnificent collection of specimen trees and topiary. From a development perspective there is planning permission to divide the Wood Burcote Court into two detached properties. The west side of the house would remain intact and sit within just over an acre of grounds. The east side has permission to be demolished and replaced with an individual three storey dwelling in a matching Arts and Crafts style and providing a 4-5 bedroom layout with courtyard garden, rose garden and garaging. The division of the two properties is shown on the plot plan. STABLE CONVERSION - PLOT 1 The traditional outbuildings lie to the north east of Wood Burcote Court and benefit from planning permission to be converted into a single storey three bedroom barn conversion. The permission allows for a single storey extension taking the finished conversion up to 2,080 square feet of accommodation and would benefit from its own grounds totalling ¼ of an acre. An architect's floor plan showing the layout of the conversion is provided on the next page. BUILDING PLOTS - PLOTS 2 - 6 The outline planning permission allows for the establishment of five building plots accessed off a private gated drive with the extent of these delineated on the sale plan attached to these particulars. The plots vary in shape and size to allow for the construction of five individual homes. Each plot has its own Constraints Plan. Plot Number Plot Size (Sq. M) Plot Size (Sq. Ft) Max GEC Sq.
