Property description

Undoubtedly one of the most exciting residential property opportunities ever to hit the East Riding of Yorkshire. A former reservoir, sitting within a plot of land measuring close to half an acre, with full planning permission for a three-bedroom underground home!

Designed by Hessle-based award-winning architect, David Ettridge, this is undoubtedly one of the most exciting residential property opportunities ever to hit the East Riding of Yorkshire. This plot of land, at the heart of Elloughton Dale and only a half-mile walk from the centre of Elloughton village, surrounds a former reservoir for which Full Planning Permission has been granted for the development of an underground home. The land area is about 0.44 acres with a 220 meter (720 feet) perimeter. The existing reservoir chamber is square with an area of about 1600 square feet, and the plan is to excavate 20 feet further into the hill to increase the internal area to about 2400 square feet. The existing bridge will be enlarged to create car parking for two vehicles. We have estimates from two local building firms for the complete conversion. For further information, please call Hudsons [use Contact Agent Button].

Transport & Local Amenities - Nearest shops/pub - 0.5 miles on foot, 0.7 miles by car (Elloughton Village)
Nearest train station - 2.3 miles (Brough Station, with direct service to London KX)
Nearest international airport - 20.3 miles (Humberside Airport)

Existing Reservoir - 12.28m x 12.28m (40'3" x 40'3") - The existing reservoir, which is disused and empty, can currently be accessed via a manhole by descending via wall-mounted rungs. The chamber is roughly square measuring about 40 ft by 40 ft with an internal height of 2.28m(7'6"), giving an internal footprint of about 1600 sqft. The diagonal distance measures approximately 17m(55'9").

The Proposed Dwelling - Planning approval has been given for a development area measuring 40 ft by 60 ft (2400 sqft), which would involve the existing reservoir being extended back, below ground, by a further 20 ft.
