A rare opportunity to acquire an interesting residential development site of approx. 651 sq m (0.16 acres) with commenced planning permission for the erection of a pair of semi-detached houses with garaging and gardens enjoying a pleasant aspect to the front within the highly sought after village of Sibbertoft, some 5 miles south west of the thriving town of Market Harborough, close to the borders of Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.

The site is approached via a private driveway located to the rear of Springcroft, creating a pleasant backwater setting enjoying views to the front. The site has an approximate area of 0.16 acres (651 sq m).

The highly regarded village of Sibbertoft lies close to the borders of Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, and has a public house, parish church and numerous walks over surrounding countryside. Primary schooling exists in the nearby village of Clipston. The thriving town of Market Harborough lies some 5 miles north east of the village, and offers excellent shopping and supermarket facilities, bars, restaurants, cafes, a theatre and leisure centre. For the commuter, Market Harborough has mainline rail services to London St Pancras in about an hour, the A14 lies to the south, and the M1 is accessible at Junction 20.

Plans have been drawn up for the erection of a pair of semi-detached houses of approximately 1,400 sq ft each, net internal excluding garage, and briefly provides for two reception rooms, kitchen, downstairs cloakroom/wc, main bedroom with en-suite bathroom, three further bedrooms and family bathroom. Integral to the house is a single garage with further parking to the front.

It will be the responsibility of the purchasers to erect and forever to maintain a 1.8m high fence on the southern boundary between the new right hand dwelling and the garage belonging to Springcroft. Further details from the agents.

Planning was originally granted in 2004 (Ref DA/2004/0499), and planning consent was eventually granted on appeal in 2007 (Ref APP/Y2810/A/07/2051014/WF). Foundations were then laid, and Warwick Building Control signed the works off on 24th November 2009, further details from the selling agents.

It is recommended that prospective purchasers liaise directly with Daventry District Council regarding any planning matters.
