An outstanding rare opportunity to purchase a rurally located property with planning permission to construct a unique replacement dwelling. Bencombe Lodge commands a spectacular position on the peaceful rural edge of Uley with magnificent far reaching views across the valley occupying a generous private plot of 0.50 acres backing onto fields. Extant planning permission offers the superb opportunity to construct a replacement of the existing dwelling with a unique architecturally designed 2/3 bedroom property boasting a gross internal area of about 2,400 sq.ft.
The proposed dwelling has been designed by award winning architects McLean Quinlan. Situated within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the design is thoughtfully in keeping with the landscape, harmonising with the valley setting whilst taking full advantage of the excellent views. The plans include two bedrooms, both with en-suites, a further separate WC alongside a spacious open plan kitchen/living room, an entrance hall and utility room. An additional reception room is a particular feature benefitting from the open view aspect whilst boasting a high vaulted ceiling with mezzanine floor above. This impressive room could also be used as an additional bedroom.
The existing property as it stands offers 2 bedroom accommodation of 1,047 sq.ft. and could be renovated in its current form if desired. Private off-street parking is set behind a gated driveway off the quiet leafy lane.
The property is situated within an elevated setting along a leafy country lane, positioned on the rural edge of the village of Uley. The pretty village of Uley is within 3/4 mile and is situated on the lower slopes of the Cotswold escarpment in an area designated of one of outstanding natural beauty. The village has a strong community spirit and a good number of amenities which include a post office/store, village hall, excellent primary school and village pub, playgroup, doctor's surgery, The Prema Arts Centre and Cafe. A wider range of shopping facilities can be found in the nearby town of Dursley along with the well regarded Rednock secondary school. The Cotswold towns of Stroud and Tetbury also have more extensive range of shopping facilities along with independent grammar schools. Uley is well located for travel throughout the South West including Gloucester, Bristol, Bath and Cheltenham with the M5/M4 motorway network within easy reach. Main line railway stations can be found at Stroud, Stonehouse and nearby Cam.
