The secluded development, located to the east of the Swepstone Road comprises a development site of approximately 1.1 acres on which planning permission has been obtained for two dwellings. This is complemented by approximately 12.7 acres of meadow land recently planted with approximately 5 acres of mixed native trees in five copses and enjoying a long boundary to the picturesque Gilwiskaw Brook. The planning permission is for the conversion of a former milking parlour to a three bedroom detached house and a barn and having permission for a substantial five bedroomed luxury dwelling. The site is secluded and has considerable potential for providing delightful gardens with landscaped lawns sweeping down to the Gilwiskaw Brook which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) an important environmental feature of the area. Brown Trout are believed to populate this brook together with other interesting wildlife.

This is a fantastic opportunity for either a single luxury dwelling with a granny flat/fitness suite/personal leisure complex or alternatively two beautifully located dwellings.

The 13 acres of meadow land and woodland were planted in spring 2016 and have been maintained following a grant from The National Forest and provide an ideal area for country leisure pursuits.

The approach to the property is off a private gated drive from the main Swepstone to Measham Road which contributes to the seclusion of the location and provides the discerning purchaser with  the opportunity to acquire an exceptional redevelopment site and rural area which will be the basis for either one or two highly desirable dwellings.

The development site which is shown on the plan, for illustrative purposes only, has frontage to both sides of the Gilwiskaw Brook and is approached over a private drive.

The land lies between the Leicestershire villages of Swepstone and Measham and is within the National Forest.

Planning permission for two dwellings has been granted by North West Leicestershire District Council and can be viewed on their website with the following references:

5 bedroom house 16/01397/PDNATR and

3 bedroom house 03/00969/FUL

The plans of the 5 bedroom detached dwelling are available for inspection from the selling agents.

The property is being sold freehold with vacant possession.

Mains water and electricity are available. Sewage is to a private system.

There is an electricity high voltage line crossing the meadow land.

By private treaty.
