Property description

Development plot with outline planning. Design your own home! A piece of land made up of an area of garden and light woodland in this semi-rural location. Potential to build a substantial 4-5 bedroom detached on a generous plot. Existing stone building, formerly used as an office for the former quarry, to be demolished by buyer. Excellent access to Halifax, Brighouse and the motorway network.
The site
The site is the land to the West side of Watson House. The plot is currently garden space with planted fruit trees. Behind the site, there used to be a stone quarry (Watson Quarry) which ceased trading in 1990s and was filled in to put the land back to a natural appearance. There is a stone building on the site, formerly the office for the quarry. On the site plan it is the area outlined in red. Entry belongs to Watson House - the buyer will have right of way access.

Planning permission
The planning details can be found on the Calderdale planning website with reference 17/00185/out. Planning is for the build of a single detached property on this substantial plot and so represents a unique opportunity for the buyer to design their own home. This could also come with the potential to build an annex. The buyer to submit detailed planning to suit their own needs.

Excellent location in an enviable semi-rural position with fields to the rear and can be found between Southowram and Brighouse.

This used to serve as the office for Watson Quarry - which closed in the 1990s. It has 3 phase electrics and fuse box. Built mainly in stone, the demolition of this will provide the buyer with some attractive material for walls etc.

Please contact the agent for access. No unaccompanied access please.
