LOCATION

Lower Failand is amongst one of North Somerset's most sought after locations due to its access into Clifton Village and Bristol City Centre with its many shops, bars, restaurants and amenities. Lower Failand itself is an active village, of largely family houses and boasts a Village Hall, local pub, post office and general store.
There is also excellent access to junction 20 of the M5, Bristol Temple railway station (London Paddington in 90 minutes), and Bristol International Airport offering an extensive range of flights.

THE OPPORTUNITY

BUILD YOUR OWN GRAND DESIGNS STYLE HOME

The stunning location and privacy afforded by the 4 acre site demands a "Grand Designs" style property is built on the site.
The property has the benefit of a lapsed planning permission to erect a 1614 Sq Ft Bungalow ( Refer to Legal Pack ) and interested parties are urged to make their own investigations with the local authority.

BUYERS PLEASE NOTE

“Planning application 11/P/1817/F was obtained but never implemented. The erection of the recent garages in or around 2012 were not believed to require planning permission. Both parts of the garage were originally going to have pitched roofs, but on the advice of the planning officer, it was agreed that only part of the garage should have a pitched roof. No further planning history is available and Buyers should make all prudent enquiries.”

The above Statement is given by the Seller in order to assist any buyer. Please note that no specific enquiries or investigations have been carried out by either the Seller nor by Porter Dodson LLP or the members of that firm and any buyer should rely entirely upon their own investigations and enquiries.

EPC

BUYER'S PREMIUM

Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £1000 + VAT (£1,200 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.

GUIDE PRICE

An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

RESERVE PRICE

The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
