An exceptional Freehold block of development land with Outline Planning for a low density mixed development of 10 properties comprising detached bungalows, and detached and semi-detached houses, occupying a highly sought-after location on the eastern outskirts of the village of Fownhope, just outside the Conservation Area about 1/2 mile from the River Wye and in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is no Section 106 Agreement or affordable housing allocation.
Fownhope is conveniently situated between the Cathedral City of Hereford (7 miles) and the Market Towns of Ledbury (9 miles) and Ross-on-Wye (8 miles) both of which have links to the M50 Motorway (junctions 2 and 3 respectively).
Within the village (population approximately 1000) there is a very active community and an extensive range of amenities which include a church, shop/post office, village hall, butchers, recreation field, doctors surgery, 2 public houses, exclusive health and leisure club (Wye Leisure), primary school and the village lies in the catchment area for Bishop's secondary school. The area is known for its array of footpaths and sites of specific scientific interest.
The site extends to approximately 2.3 acres and adjoins existing residential housing and the doctors surgery, with open farmland to the eastern side, and has an outlook back to St Mary's church, is reasonably level and accessed via an unclassified road known as Common Hill Lane.

A full copy of the consent and submitted drawings are available for inspection on our website. We draw the purchasers' attention to the conditions contained therein.
