THE SITE We are delighted to offer the opportunity to acquire an outstanding building plot in a rural setting within the Cotswold AONB with various facilities in the village nearby.

The land is currently occupied by the original detached cottage, a temporary chalet and a large storage shed/barn. The site is flanked on two sides by the Buckholt and Witcombe Woods, a designated wildlife site dating back to 1086 and to the north is an open field of gently sloping light cultivated grazing land giving attractive views across the landscape and hills beyond.

The total plot amounts to 3.4 acres and the extent of the land is shown edged in red on the OS plan within these sales particulars strictly for identification purposes only.

There is a detailed consent for a five bedroom detached Cotswold stone house of some 2,519 sq.ft.
Additionally, the property will retain the original detached barn east of the proposed dwelling.
The accommodation can be summarised as follows:

Ground Floor

An entrance lobby gives access to a central hallway leading to sitting room, kitchen/dining area, pantry, utility room, boot room, family shower room, cloakroom, and 4 bedrooms (2 of which are en-suite).

First Floor

Landing, Master bedroom suite with en-suite


The proposed dwelling has its own driveway and parking for two vehicles. Extensive grounds beyond the proposed dwelling include a large barn/shed requiring refurbishment.

LOCATION The site is located in Cranham, a 2.3 mile drive to the start of village facilities and accessed from the Buckholt Road. A public right of way runs north to south nearby to the western boundary. Cranham has various facilities to include a primary school, church, public house, village hall, scouts centre and cricket pitch and is served by regular bus services towards Cheltenham and Painswick/Stroud.

It is very rare that building plots such as this especially with the sizable grounds become available in this location and attractive setting.
