Beechwood Avenue, Burbage represents a rare opportunity for a committed Self-Builder looking for TWO PLOTS in one parcel of land.

With Full Planning Permission granted on conversion of the existing detached dormer bungalow into a substantial four bed, two-storey home measuring c. 2975 sq.ft. (c. 276.4 sq.m), along with further Full Planning Permission for a new-build detached bungalow of c. 636 sq. ft (c. 59.1 sq. m.) in the garden grounds with its own access, the Self-Build opportunities are enormous.

The family lifestyle options out of this arrangement are superb: a main family home of impressive scale alongside perhaps a perfect retirement bungalow for the elder generation. Or a great leg-up for the younger generation into a lovely new-build bungalow with strongeco-credentials while the family enjoy living right next door in the larger of the two properties.

Of course, the experienced self-builder will appreciate the economies of scale that come with having two building projects proceeding either simultaneously, or sequentially, on the same site: you may be able to achieve meaningful economies given the relative ease of building two properties in this fashion.

The site is flat and readily accessed from two suburban streets, making for a comfortable development site without significant compromised access issues of the sort that afflict many infill building sites, and of course served with all current utilities and services.

And for the experienced self-builder that has faced the perennial problemof choosing to live on-site in a caravan while their dream home comes to life, or to rent nearby with all that additional expense, the option is here to occupy the already substantial current home while the new-build is constructed, then switch to living in that property while the larger home on-site is built.

Full Local Authority approvedplans for each of the projects are included within our particulars, along with a Building Regulations package for the largermain house including materials estimates upon request (this is without warranty from the vendor and provided as an information piece for any prospective buyer to use to secureindependent verification andto create their own specification to suit their taste).

Burbage is an attractive suburban location on the southerly outskirts of Hinckley. The properties lie in an established street location of varied housing of mature detached houses and bungalows. One of the singular advantages of this location is the tremendous ease of access to the M69 for travel onwards to Leicester, Coventry, and then Birmingham. The built homes would therefore offer unrivalled opportunities for commuting as well as modern homes for home-working within pleasant garden surrounds and a mature established street environment.

Northwood's experienced team would be able to consult on the potential valuations of the completed properties.

This is a rare prospect for enhanced multi-generation living in two adjacent new-builds, or perhaps for the self-builder to secure the home of their dreams while achieving an additional return by selling-on one of the properties at a profit to effectively reduce the costs of the home they retain. As we say, the possibilities seem endless, and we encourage early enquiries to proceed with these projects.

Existing House:

Beechwood Avenue, Burbage is a deceptively spacious dormer bungalow, comprising a large lounge and thru' dining room on the ground floor, with a master bedroom and a second double bedroom/separate family room. The bright modern kitchen complements the whole, and a study and bathroom complete the layout.
From the parquet-floored hall open tread stairs rise to the first floor where a main bedroom with en-suite shower room is situated, along with the fourth single bedroom.
