An excellent building plot with planning consent for a characterful modern home with country views.

Plot at Blackwater Mill Farm The plot extends to approximately 0.25 acre on a level site within the village of Blackwater and benefits from country views. The access to the house is through the existing attractive entrance to Blackwater Mill Farm (with a Right of Way along the initial section of gravelled driveway into the plot). The proposed house will have views over the adjacent paddock that run towards the river, as well as views towards St George’s Down.

This is a highly accessible location to all parts of the Island and mainland ferry services also benefits from being close to a bus route as well as the nearby cycle path leading to Newport. The surrounding countryside has great walks whilst good shopping facilities and schools are available in Newport, (about 2 miles).

Outside The house will have a large level garden as shown in the plans. There is mature hedging along the roadside and the existing close boarded fence forming the western boundary should be extended around to the northern boundary, whilst a mature evergreen hedge to the south provides a good degree of privacy.

Access It is proposed that the access into the plot and parking area shall be by the existing five bar gate to the north east of the plot, (rather than to the west of the plot as originally indicated).

Covenants There is a covenant that nothing should be built within 30ft of the southern boundary. There is also a National Trust covenant on the land and the vendor has gained approval for the proposed plans and paid the necessary fee. Any amendment to the size, external design or position of the house would require renegotiation with the National Trust. The vendor would not be willing to a sale that was subject to such renegotiation with the National Trust. It is proposed that there shall be limitations on the parking of caravans/mobile homes on the plot to safeguard the amenity of the surroundings.

Services Mains water, electricity and gas run in the adjacent road. A private drainage system will need to be installed for the house. The water supply serving Blackwater Mill Farm and Easton run through the plot and if necessary would need to be re-routed as part of the development.
