The subject parcel of land is located in the historic and archaeologically rich market town of Baldock, Hertfordshire. The village of Baldock is immersed in a picturesque rural setting, encircled by green belt countryside. Immediately west of Baldock lies the admired first garden city, Letchworth, accessible in 2.5 miles.

The site extends to approximately 0.067 ha (0.17 acres) and is currently unutilised land. Planning consent has been granted for the conversion and change of use of the existing barn to create a single 3 bedroom dwelling, with double carport, parking and amenity space. The measurement of the proposed dwelling, as advised by the architect is proposed to be approximately 145m2 (1,500sqft), however we are advised that the internal area measurement would be affected by final construction details including insulation etc and design. No affordable homes would be required in this instance.
The site has the benefit of an existing gated vehicular access point which fronts directly on to Sandlers Close and Park Street which is to be retained. Please do ensure that the access provides sufficiently for your proposed development. Please ask your legal advisor to ensure the access is suitable.
