At first glance this unassuming 1930’s semi-detached house on Brown Edge Road, Buxton looks like a typical family home. But look closer at the auction details, and this house, guided at £250,000+, comes with a welcome addition: a huge parcel of land which could be ripe for development!
The freehold site measures 3.5 acres comprising a three-bedroom semi-detached house (currently let at £550pcm) with gardens, parking, an access road and a large parcel of land with development potential, subject to planning.
The site is surrounded by residential development with the railway to the eastern boundary. In 2015 plans were submitted to erect 21 dwellings, but was refused on appeal by High Peak Borough Council in 2016, where the refusal focused on the number of properties proposed.
Toby Limbrick, auctioneer, said, ‘Buying this property represents a real opportunity for somebody. The house retails around the £250,000 mark and for that you also get the possibility of a site waiting to happen! It’s our belief that the previous scheme submitted was too dense, but a rethink of how the site could be laid out with less properties could have the potential to be considered.’
72 Brown Edge Road, Buxton, Derbyshire, SK17 7AF will be sold by Network Auctions on the 9th February. For more information: www.networkauctions.co.uk
