An extremely rare opportunity to acquire a generous single building plot overlooking the Bollin Valley, for a bespoke design and build residence up to 10,000 sq ft


An extremely rare opportunity to acquire a generous single building plot with an outline planning permission for a bespoke design and build residence up to 10,000 sq ft The development plot and outline planning permission provides one of the few remaining opportunities in this desirable area to design and build a bespoke home of both quality and scale within an edge of Green Belt setting. In addition to the development plot itself, there is an adjacent 3.5 acre plot to the rear as a paddock or privacy buffer (edged blue) and ensure increased privacy to the main development plot. Bankhall Lane offers an extremely appealing development plot to deliver a truly bespoke scheme set in landscaped grounds and open countryside. The planning permission has purposely avoided fixing any prospective purchaser to a detailed and prescribed design, and allows for the delivery of an unique scheme to cater for individual requirements and meet all planning objectives. To reflect the context of other dwellings within the neighbouring conservation area, the consent allows for a dwelling of significant scale to be delivered up to 10,000 sq ft. Massing can be explored in a number of ways, ranging up to 2.5 storeys or making ups of basement level, all of which will be appropriate in planning terms. In ''Indicative Development Plan' shows a shaded indicative ''limit of build zoon' area with minimum distances given to each of the site boundaries. The purchase of this is not to constrain the developable area but rather provide an indication of where an appropriately sized and well-designed dwelling can be located within the plot to promote the privacy of any future occupier and neighbours. The 'Indicative Development Plan' illustrates the different zones that make up the site and have informed the layout parameters. Similar to the scale and height of any future scheme, the consent allows for several layout options to be pursued in order to meet individual needs. The site is arranged to make best use of the available area to provide a well-sized plot whilst retaining the desired space between dwellings; both desirable characteristics of development in the area. Along the eastern boundary of the site access will be retained to the fields to the south and enable to functioning of this area of the site as a Wildlife Corridor. Located just outside the Green Belt boundary, which remains tightly defined around the south of the Trafford borough, an opportunity to bring the site forward for development has been secured following the approval of outline planning permission (ref: 96290/OUT/18) in May 2020 for the following: - ''Outline application with all matters reserved for the erection of 1 no. dwelling house with landscaping, access and other associated works.' On securing planning permission, the development plot on offer at Bankhall Lane represents one of the very few remaining opportunities within the Hale and Hale Barns area to deliver a dwelling of scale and truly bespoke design within a vacant greenfield site that is set within the open countryside.
