Building Plot 2 - Description The plot is positioned to the rear of a substantial detached Tudor style house called The Paddocks and has, to date, been part of the well-tended grass paddocks of this property, enclosed by a variety of trees, hedges and fencing, with a number of ornamental shrubs and bushes. To the north-east, the current paddock borders open countryside stretching away towards the coast in the distance.

There is also a substantial fountain located within the area which will be occupied by plot 1 and this will be disconnected from the water supply of The Paddocks but left on site for the purchaser of Plot 1 to reposition or remove as they prefer.

Plot 2 has an approximate area of 0.48-acre (subject to survey). Part of the rear boundary of plot 2 is formed by the Swine Dyke drain and Plot 2 includes a country footpath on the far side of the fencing and hedges. The planning conditions state that the private drainage systems for the two new houses will be required to discharge into this drain, and appropriate easements will be included in the sale contract where necessary to reach this drain. Easements will also be included for any services crossing the plots to retained land/buildings and for each of the new plots where their services cross the neighbouring plot or land owned by The Paddocks.

The vendor will concrete-pave the strip driveway specified in the planning permission over the area coloured brown on the site plan shown on the preceding page and the two plots will have a right of way over this driveway with or without vehicles to the area coloured blue. The blue area is part of Plot 1 and both Plot 2 and The Paddocks will have a right of way across this area, with or without vehicles.

Wayleaves, Easements, Covenants, Services and Rights of Way

The land is sold subject to, and with the benefit of, all existing wayleaves, easements and quasi easements and rights of way, whether mentioned in these particulars or not. The vendor will install service ducting along the driveway from the edge of the highway to the area-coloured blue with mains water electricity and BT cable for each plot connected.

The shared driveways will be subject to shared liability for maintenance according to user. The plot purchasers will be responsible for any damage caused to the driveway or ducted services caused by construction or other traffic to or from their plot and required to make good any such damage at their expense.

NB. It will be a condition of sale that the new dwellings will be constructed within a specified time period to the approved design and any alterations to such design or construction of additional buildings within the grounds will be subject to the approval of the vendors or their successors in title, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld.

Tenure The Plot is offered for sale freehold with vacant possession on completion.

VAT It is not anticipated that VAT will be charged. However, should any sale of any part of the land or any rights attached to it become a chargeable supply for the purposes of VAT, such tax will also be payable by the purchaser(s) in addition to the contract price.

Viewing Viewing is strictly by prior appointment through the selling agent.
