THE OPPORTUNITY

UNFINISHED PROJECT | DETACHED HOME

The property was originally granted planning permission in 2002 and works commenced in 2003, over a period of 7 years the property was developed to a first fix stage with the main structure in place and services connected - essentially as it stands today.

We understand that all works thus far have building regulation sign off and the property can be completed subject to the 2000 building regulations stipulations as per the original planning permission - please refer to legal pack

The property now requires final completion including windows, all internal finishes, landscaping and some external cladding works.

This is a unique opportunity to complete one of the first properties to be started ( and the only one to be finished + the largest Sq Ft in the development ) in this iconic Eco Community development in the heart of St Werbughs.

THE YARD - BACKSTORY

In 1999 The Yard was a disused scaffolding yard up for sale for development. A commercial developer had planned to build a typical housing estate on it. A group of neighbours formed Ashley Vale Action Group (AVAG) to protest these plans. It was a unique neighbourhood, and people didn’t want an identikit housing development built solely to profit a development company. The group successfully stopped the plans, and then decided to develop the site themselves with plots for self-build houses, and communal gardens, workshops and a community room for the neighbourhood. The Yard is the result of the passion and determination of many people; those original visionaries who believed that a community-led development could work, and the self-builders and neighbours who made it happen.

If you want to know more there is a book, The Story of the Yard; Building a Community by Carrie Hitchcock, available from the St Werburghs branch of the Better Food Company.

WHAT IS LIFE LIKE INSIDE AN ECO FRIENDLY COMMUNITY

As you travel by train through Bristol there is one area that stands out from all the city's terraces, graffitied walls and gritty flyovers. It nestles in a green bowl – a patchwork of allotments, a mini nature reserve, a city farm and, at the bottom, a collection of surreal-looking houses made of copper, wood and glass in strange shapes, glinting with solar panels. This oasis of calm is Ashley Vale, a collection of 26 eco-houses that were designed and hand-built by local residents in response to a developer attempting to take over a brownfield site in the St Werburgh's district.

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 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.
