History & Background Stunning development site, situated in a highly desirable semi-rural location, with well screened and mature grounds extending to 1.85 acres which include an area suitable for a paddock to the rear with stable.
Plans have been passed for a substantial 6000 + sq ft Country Home which will be set well back within its grounds, behind the existing 4 bedroom house to be demolished. However, purchasers would be permitted to reside in this existing, dated, dwelling until completion of the new build, if needed.
The planning permission was granted in 2008 08/00789/FUL and commencement of works (substructure) has commenced in accordance with the associated conditions. The foundations are designed on a traditional H plan style and we are advised by the architect that this may allow versatility and scope to customise the design, subject to local authority approval.
This is an exciting and extraordinary opportunity for the incoming buyer to create their own family home with immediate effect and with the additional benefit of plans also being passed (on the same application) for a substantial garage building with studio above.
Setting & Location
The property is located on the East Hanningfield Road at Howe Green, within the parish of Sandon village and in one of the most desirable semi-rural turnings that lie on the south eastern outskirts of Chelmsford City Centre.
The immediate area comprises a number of individual and substantial country homes with open countryside to the rear, whilst also being easily accessible for the old A130 (Southend Road) for access onto the major road links of A130 (for A27) and A12 (for M25).
The area is rich in its largely rural surroundings with the numerous neighbouring villages of Great Baddow, East Hanningfield, Bicnacre and Danbury; all of which offer a wide choice of country restaurants, traditional country pubs and a network of country footpaths.
There is a park and ride scheme just over 2 miles away, offering a direct service into Chelmsford City Centre with its mainline railway station serving London Liverpool Street. Sandon has a secondary school with pre-schools available in the neighbouring villages.
