Property description

A rare opportunity to acquire a site of approx. 0.25 acres with an existing commercial property with full planning granted for a change of use and to extend to form a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom single storey dwelling, located in an attractive rural setting on the southern fringes of Exeter.

Situation


Balls Farm Road is a country lane located on the south west fringe of the Cathedral City of Exeter situated between Alphington, St Thomas, and the village of Ide, within the Alphin Brook Conservation Area, and benefits from close proximity to all of the amenities the city offers and yet very much has a feel and outlook of a rural setting. There are several village and town pubs within easy reach, Sainsbury's supermarket is a short drive away, as are the wider facilities of Marsh Barton. Transport links are good with the A30 and M5 within easy reach, and Exeter St Davids railway station gives fast access to London Paddington.

The Property


The site measures approximately 0.25 acres with access from Balls Farm Road over a tarmacadam gated driveway, with attractive natural stone walling, rising to a parking area. The site is set above the lane with a hedgerow and a bank to the roadside, and borders farmland with a post and rail fence. The existing building, so called as it was originally a flower drying shed, is of single skin timber frame construction attractively clad in Western Red Cedar with a corrugated aluminium roof and galvanised rainwater goods, wooden double-glazed windows and velux roof lights, and is in use as an architect's office. Full planning has been granted for a change to residential use and extension to the rear. Current proposed drawings show a well thought out three-bedroom single storey L-shaped layout with an en suite master bedroom, family bathroom, open plan living area with French doors to a deck, and a study, extending to nearly 1,000 sq ft. The existing drive and parking area can remain, or could be made over to a larger garden area with a carport at the drive entrance (subject to pp). This is a rare opportunity to create essentially a new home to your specification in a rural setting yet close to Exeter.

Agents Note


Details of full planning permission granted in February 2019 for "Change of use from an existing office building to residential use; and single storey rear extension" can be found on the Exeter City Council Planning Portal Ref: 19/0235/FUL

Services


The existing building already has mains water, gas and electricity connections, with gas central heating, and private drainage consisting of a septic tank with drainage field.
