A rare opportunity to acquire a development site which currently has two existing character cottages, which are in need of refurbishment, and the site overall has a Certificate of Lawfulness for development, subject to obtaining additional planning permission. The likely development could include three newly built detached houses, which would be in addition to the existing cottages, whilst occupying a very pleasant position, with rural views over open countryside, and situated towards the outskirts of the village.


The property occupies a generous size corner plot which is 0.545 of an acre. Currently, there are a pair of character cottages, which are at the front of the development, and require refurbishment. Once completed, this would offer two character semi-detached cottages with generous size front gardens, parking and a courtyard with outbuildings to the rear, whilst the remaining site offers scope to construct three additional detached houses with gardens and parking, subject to obtaining planning permission and other consents.


Handpost Cottages occupy a delightful setting on the edge of this attractive village and enjoy far reaching rural views. The village of Ivinghoe is situated just three and a half miles from the market town of Tring, which offers a comprehensive range of shopping facilities, together with a mainline station, which is just a short drive away, offering services to London (Euston approximately 39 minutes).


If travelling from Berkhamsted along the Tring Road turn right after Cow Roast into New Ground Road, then immediately left into Beggars Lane, upon reaching the t-junction turn right and continue along past the station, then take the first turning on the left for approximately one mile. Upon reaching the roundabout turn right onto the B488 and upon reaching Ivinghoe the properties will be found immediately on the right hand side, just after the B489, which is a turning also on the right.
