Guide Price £350,000
Location & Description
The property enjoys a pleasant semi rural position on the easterly edge of Long Lee in a quiet backwater setting off Moss Carr Road with views over the Aire Valley. The vibrant town of Keighley is just 2 miles to the west offering a wide range of schools, shops, bars, restaurants and leisure facilities together with excellent communications including a railway station with services to Bradford, Leeds and Skipton and good access to the road networks with the larger local business centres of west Yorkshire being within commuting range.
Formerly part of Higher Moss Carr Farm, the site represents an exciting opportunity to acquire land with full planning permission for residential development.
Full planning permission for the extension of the existing cottage into the adjoining stone barn to form a single dwelling together with the construction of five new build houses on land to the south, was granted by Bradford Metropolitan District Council on the 21 October 2011. Application No: 11/03933/FUL
Approval for the discharge of all necessary conditions relating to the planning permission was granted on the 18 February 2014 and the development subsequently commenced.
The cottage and barn have now be sold with just the building land remaining the extent of which is shown edged red on the sale plan.
The planning decision notice and approved plans can be viewed at the agents Skipton office. Copies can be provided at a cost of £24 inc. VAT.
