Barrowden is a picturesque conservation village on the southern boundaries of Rutland having a village green, duck pond, church and public house. The village is approximately half a mile south of the A47 which gives easy access to the market towns of Uppingham, Oakham and Stamford and to Leicester in the West and Peterborough in the East. Other centres easily accessible are Kettering and Corby with good Inter City train services to London (King’s Cross) and the North.
The site forms part of the property of Pridmore Haulage, a family business which has traded from these premises for many years prior to relocating to South Luffenham. The sale offers an excellent opportunity to purchase a residential development site located in the centre of this popular and sought after Rutland village, with potential for the construction of four new dwellings to compliment the cottage.
The property is situated at the southern end of Tippings Lane a short distance from the village green and Exeter Arms Public House and within Barrowden Conservation Area. The property is identified edged red on the plan (not to scale) attached in Appendix B.
The total site area including the cottage extends to about 0.18 hectares (0.45 acres) as shown edged red on the site plan, with access off Tippings Lane. The workshop is of timber and masonry construction with an adjoining office. The majority of the yard is concrete surfaced.
The cottage 1 Tippings Lane, comprises a detached two storey stone-built cottage beneath a blue slate covered roof. On the ground floor there is a recently constructed conservatory, a kitchen, hallway with w.c and sitting room to the rear. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, and a bathroom. Gas fired central heating is installed an all of the windows have been replaced with UPVC units. Outside is a car parking space and a small south facing garden with views overlooking the Welland Valley.
The vendor has obtained Pre-Application planning advice from Rutland District Council who have indicated that the demolition of the workshop building followed by the construction of three houses along the site frontage (one detached and a pair of semis), plus a single storey dwelling to the rear may be acceptable. The planning authority has suggested that further consideration should now take place through the submission of a planning application where an extensive consultation process will take place.
