A Freehold parcel of land ( 0.05 Hectares ) accessed from Castle Street.
Sold with vacant possession.
With a population of 25,000, Frome’s popularity has grown exponentially in recent years; heralded as the best place to live in Britain by the Sunday Times in 2018. The town continues to garner high regard for its ‘flatpack democracy’, thanks to a coalition of independents who took control of all 17 seats on its council. This activity has contributed greatly to its growing community of independent shops, creative businesses and eateries, saturated in its artisan quarter on Catherine Hill. Rye Bakery and Stony Street Café rank high in popularity with residents. The Frome Independent, a monthly market showcasing local artisans and food producers, has helped put Frome on the map, attracting over 80,000 visitors annually.
Frome sits 13 miles south of Bath and 23 miles from the city of Bristol. Located at the eastern end of the Mendip hills, the surrounding countryside and popular nearby towns of Mells and Bruton are easily accessible. The town has its own station, providing regular connections directly into London Paddington in under 2 hours.
This Freehold parcel of land has development opportunity for a residential scheme subject to consents.
Please note the proposed scheme is indicative only and no planning has been sought of this nature.
NB - Mendip District Council does not warrant that any planning permission will be achievable on this scheme and any purchaser will be responsible for gaining their own planning permission and drawings etc.
Full details of the proposed scheme and drawings can be downloaded with the online legal pack.
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.
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.
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.
