Land for sale | Acres | GUIDE PRICE £400,000


Situated close to the heart of the dispersed riverside village of Hoarwithy, and standing within the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the site now being offered for sale stands alongside an existing bungalow known as Green Banks, Hoarwithy. The recently granted Outline Planning
Permission is for four dwellings, two of which are on virgin land, the other two to be built upon the site of the existing large, single storey workshop, the workshop needing to be demolished by the purchaser prior to the construction of two of the dwellings. The existing bungalow, Green Banks, will be retained by the current owners, but the whole of the remainder of the site is to be offered for sale as a single entity. Services nearby include mains water and electricity.

Such drainage arrangements will also need to cater for drainage from the retained bungalow, Green Banks.
