A unique three/four bedroom development opportunity in a stunning rural location.

A fabulous development opportunity to create a unique three/four bedroom home just outside the town. 0.13 acre (0.05 ha).

The Old Reservoir benefits from planning consent to convert into a family home with work having been substantially started including removal of the covering soil, concrete floor and openings through the thick concrete to form the windows and door ways.

The plans show a semi-open plan kitchen/dining room and sitting room with large glazed windows on the eastern elevation and a curved barrelled ceiling. The three bedrooms are lit from above or

the western elevation, with provision of a study/4th bedroom, en suite family bathroom and a separate cloak room. This site, which

extends to approximately 0.13 acres (0.05 ha) is set elevated above the town of Colyton with direct access onto the public lane.

Planning permission was granted on the 2nd June 2014 (Ref 13/0505/FUL) subject to conditions and a section 106 agreement.

Pre development conditions were discharged and substantial works begun, thus saving the planning consent.

The Section 106 agreement requires the payment of a contribution of £1,955.64, index linked with the Retail Prices Index to East Devon District Council prior to occupation.
