HERE'S an opportunity for someone to build a detached bungalow in a tree-lined cul de sac within walking distance of Chard town centre.

Development land and planning specialists Greenslade Hunt are offering the plot to the rear of Trelawne, Crewkerne Road, Chard. It originally formed part of the property's garden.

The site has planning permission for a single storey, two-bedroom property.

The home will sit centrally within the plot, with areas of private garden to the east, south and west.

The boundary wall to the north will be retained to provide privacy from Lyddons Mead.

Most of the garden planting on the boundaries will be maintained and supplemented with additional planting.

The property will include an open plan living/dining/kitchen area with french doors leading to the rear garden.

A separate utility room leading from the kitchen will also provide access to the garden.

The existing garage will be retained and the car port entrance re-opened to provide vehicle access and off road parking for two vehicles.

A Greenslade Hunt spokesperson said: "This development could appeal to a developer or an individual seeking to create their own home.

"If the plot is bought by a developer a Community Infrastructure Levy of around £2,594.40 will apply.

"However, if it is built by a private individual, this will not apply, as there is an exemption for self-build schemes."

The agents are quoting a guide price of £165,000.

The deadline for the submission of offers is 12noon on Friday, December 17.

A series of viewings are planned for Tuesdays, November 23 and 30, between 9am and 11am - contact the agents on 01823 334466 or e-mail or for further information.
