One of the finest building plots to come to the market in recent years offering a truly rare opportunity. **for sale by informal tender**

Superb plot with river frontage extending to c.3 acres having planning consent for a redevelopment with a substantial individual five bed detached house together with four car garage.

Planning consent to erect an individual five bed detached house extending to c.4,000 sq ft with quadruple garage.

Plot extends to c.3 acres (1.25 ha) of formal gardens and grass paddock (could be ideal for equestrian use).

450 ft (140m) frontage to River Great Ouse with riparian rights.

Superb, non-estate setting.

The plot is bounded to the north and east by Harrold-Odell Country Park, to the south by the river Great Ouse and Harrold Bridge and to the west by Carlton Road in the village of Harrold. Harrold is 10 miles North West of Bedford town centre and is conveniently situated for access to Northampton and Milton Keynes. Bedford main line railway station has fast, frequent trains to London St Pancras International (fast trains approximately 36 minutes).

The area is well served with schools, having Harrold Middle School locally in the village and the well regarded Sharnbrook Upper School within easy travelling distance. In addition, the well renowned ?Harpur Trust? Private schools are located In Bedford.

Planning was granted on 22nd May 2017 under planning reference 16/02273/ful for the demolition of the existing dwelling and erection of a detached dwelling with garaging.

A copy of the planning consent notice, detailed plans and planning history can be supplied on request.
