The building plot has consent (20/P/2223/ful) for the demolition of the existing fire damaged dwelling and rebuilding of a new dwelling of the same size and style on the same footprint.
It is a stunning plot and rare indeed to find a plot of this size in a private mainly walled and wooded setting with a gated long approach. The site adjoins the Ashton Court Estate and on the south side it overlooks its ha-ha and over part of the city towards Dundry Hill. There is a further outbuilding, close to its gated entrance, which could provide further ancillary accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. To the right of the drive is a disused walled swimming pool complex which is in need of renovation.
