Location: This site is located a short walking distance from Wellington town centre and sits behind the superb road fronted Listed Grade II former coaching inn known as The Three Cups. The Three Cups has been converted into 3 quality cottages and they are still in the same ownership as the client selling the land. The Plot itself is roughly rectangular in shape of approximate maximum measurements 43 metres long x 19 metres wide (141 ft x 62 ft) in all about 0.227 acres or 0.092 hectares.
New access: Please note, a new access has been created to the west of the site leading from Bulford. This access will be sold with the site and is included in the guide price.
Situation: The land is just a short walk from Wellington town centre with equal ease of access to the Wellington bypass, which in turn gives access to the M5 at Junction 26. Wellington town centre offers a wide range of independently run shops and larger national stores including the recently opened Waitrose. The town itself stands between the River Tone and the Blackdown Hills. The history includes the fact that Arthur Wellesley took the town’s name as his own when he became a Duke. The well-known landmark, Wellington Monument, was built to celebrate the Duke’s victory over Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. The County Town of Taunton is approximately 7 miles distant with its mainline railway station.
Directions: From the main set of traffic lights in the centre of Wellington head in the Exeter direction, along Fore Street which becomes Mantle Street. The former ‘Three Cups’ will be found a short distance on the left hand side, where the development can be accessed via the wide archway within the three cottages.
Planning Permission has been obtained for 7 two-bedroom houses split into 2 blocks with one terrace of 4 properties situated towards the Eastern boundary with a further terrace of 3 properties to the Southern boundary. The Plans have been drawn so that the new building sits sympathetically within the immediate environment.
Given the new access the site could be further enhanced by increasing the number of units. Schematic designs have been included in this pack to demonstrate possible layouts, subject to any necessary planning consents.
