Cann Common, Shaftesbury, Dorset, SP7

££1,050,000 Guide

3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

A fantastic opportunity to acquire a small holding in all approximately 12 acres of pasture, with a bungalow and barn offering the potential for alternative uses.

Bids are invited for an 'informal tender' to be received by 12.00pm on Tuesday 5th July 2022.

Mardi Gras is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a very neat smallholding on the outskirts of Shaftesbury. The drive gives a wonderful sense of arrival to the residence which sits centrally with land wrapping around all sides. The main field, of nearly ten acres, is to the south with an excellent general purpose agricultural barn to one edge. The barn is in very good structural order and has the potential for conversion subject to any relevant consents being sought (please read agents notes about uplifts). The bungalow is presented in very good order throughout and also offers scope for further development or re-configure the current layout. There are local examples of some fantastic single house developments on holdings that are not as wonderful as Mardi Gras. The current accommodation offers three bedrooms, a family bathroom, sitting room, kitchen and conservatory.

Agents notes:
There will be an uplift clause of 40% on the land for large scale residential development for a period of thirty years.

There will be a £50,000 fixed uplift payable should the barn be redeveloped into separate residential property/s.

Mardi Gras is located in the small village of Cann Common, nestling below the Cranborne Chase and overlooking the Blackmore Vale. The property is about 2 miles south east of the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury where there is a range of facilities to cater for most everyday requirements. There is a network of bridleways and footpaths on the Cranborne Chase that are accessible from the villages of Cann Common and nearby Melbury Abbas. There is a good local road network with the A303 and A30 providing access to London and the South West. There are also main line railway stations at Gillingham and Tisbury providing regular services to London Waterloo.

Outside, the gardens are neatly kept and wrap around the bungalow. Laid predominantly to lawn with some flower borders and a vegetable area the garden offers far reaching views that need to be seen in person to fully appreciate. There is ample space for parking and an integral garage.
