Description

An outstanding building plot of five acres, on the hilltop in Marlow with stunning views.

Location

The plot is enviably located on the hilltop with outstanding views over the surrounding countryside and over Marlow town. Building opportunities are rare in this location, it being a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The location is perfectly semi-rural, being open and with views over farmland yet just 1.5 miles up Frieth Road from Marlow’s town centre.

Marlow town offers a superb range of retailers, with an eclectic mix of local independent and national retailers. There are numerous bars, cafes and restaurants dotted around the town offering destinations for any occasion. The town itself is situated on the banks of the River Thames and the Thames Path follows the river through the town.

Just outside the town, the area opens out to glorious rolling countryside and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Outdoor pursuits are numerous, as are golf, football, cricket and rugby clubs.

For commuters, the town has a train station to Paddington (via Maidenhead) and the M40 motorway is accessed from the A404(M) which passes the town.

Description

The site has road frontage onto Frieth Road with consent for a new private access leading to a driveway. The new home is consented to sit roughly on the footprint of the current buildings (stabling and storage barns).

The consent is for a handsome new country home of about 617 sqm (6,600 sqft) arranged over two storeys, and providing enough space for five or more bedroom suites and four or more reception areas. Full plans are available as part of a sale pack.

The site totals just over five acres, is attractively tree-lined to two boundaries with a lovely mature Oak copse in the paddock. Screening to the road is good with a mix of mature trees and shrubbery.
