Property description

For sale by auction on Thursday, 07 December 2017 at 14.30

Venue: The Villas, 21-23 Clarendon Villas, Hove, BN3 3RE

The site currently comprises a good sized chalet bungalow set within a large plot. The bungalow has the benefit of a carriage driveway, separate garage and large rear garden. It requires internal modernisation and could be extended to create a large family home.

Alternatively, in our opinion, there is potential subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission, to demolish the existing bungalow and redevelop the site to provide 2 or more houses. There is evidence of similar sites being developed in Balsdean Road and the surrounding areas to create two detached dwellings, one behind another, or a pair of semi-detached houses at the front with a detached dwelling behind.

The site measures approximately 25m (82') wide by 65m (213') long.

EPC rating: E

nb: 5 week completion due to Christmas holidays

Redevelopment

situation
The property is situated in Woodingdean, an elevated, mainly residential suburb approximately 3 miles north east of Brighton City Centre.

Balsdean Road and the surrounding roads are predominantly made up of detached family houses. Set on the northern side of the road, the bungalow benefits from distant sea views.
