Building Plot for Sale! A rare opportunity to acquire a single building plot in a very pleasant location just half a mile from the town centre. Ideal for a self-builder and with a shepherd's hut on site providing accommodation during the build. Set along a short no through lane, just off Lyme Road in Axminster. This is a lovely, quiet position set amongst a small number of individual properties that share the access lane. The town centre is just half a mile away. Outline planning permission has been granted to demolish the existing double garage and erect a single storey dwelling. The planning application can be viewed on the East Devon planning portal under application number: 20/2875/OUT. The site is enclosed with panel fencing and locked gates and parking to the front with a stone boundary wall to the rear. The shepherd's hut has been installed and will remain on the plot providing temporary accommodation on site. A refillable water tank is connected providing water for the shower room and for kitchen use (not for drinking). The shower room is connected to the septic tank drainage which will also serve the new building. There are solar panels on the roof with battery storage beneath the shepherd's hut providing power and light. At one end of the hut is a bedroom space and in the centre is a wood burning stove providing heat.
