Currently on the site, there is a detached dwelling providing 4 bedroomed accommodation, arranged over ground and first floors. To the ground floor, the accommodation comprises two single storey extensions to the side and front elevation. In
addition there is an open plan kitchen and living area with two bedrooms and a house bathroom. The upper floor provides a further two bedrooms one of which features a walk-in wardrobe facility.
Externally there is a separate detached double garage.
To the east of the dwelling are a number of outbuildings which have formerly been used for agricultural purposes however, we understand that they are no longer in use.
The site is roughly triangular in shape extending to some 2.96 acres or thereabouts and is regarded as brownfield space. In terms of topography the site has a gentle slope running from east to west.
The existing dwelling has been measured on a gross internal area basis to provide the following approximate measurements:Ground Floor - 144.79 sqm (1,558 sqft)First Floor - 46.78 sqm (503 sqft)Total - 191.57 sqm (2,061 sqft)
In response to Leeds City Council's Site Allocation Plan, we are able to provide a draft Supplementary Submission which makes the case for the site being included as an additional housing allocation in the outer south sub area.It is suggested that this particular area has a shortfall of sites when measured against the requirements of the Adopted Core Strategy. The site scores positively when considered against the Council's own sustainability assessment with logical anddefensible green belt boundaries.It is felt the site would potentially have a capacity for circa 20 dwellings. Additional information is available upon request.Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the planning position.
The subject site is available to be purchased for a figure of £600,000 on an unconditional basis.
Please note occupation of the dwelling is currently limited to a person wholly or mainly or last employed in the locality in agriculture.
