Welcome to Hawthorn House, a five double bedroom family home located in a highly desirable Gloucestershire village, offered for sale with no onward chain and having the added plus point of private grounds comprising of gardens, paddocks and orchard which measures in total, circa 4.5 acres. Furthermore, one of the fields attached to the property has Planning Agreed in Principle for the construction of four – six new build homes.
Built in and around the 1960's the property has been previously extended and so today provides spacious accommodation across the two floors with the ground floor enjoying a welcome entrance hall, two formal reception rooms, being the living room which enjoys an open fireplace and finally the dining room.
To the side of these rooms and equally connecting them is a wonderful conservatory measuring just under 7.00m in length and 3.30m at the widest point. French doors from the room give access onto a paved terrace.
Further rooms on the ground floor include the entrance hall, cloakroom, utility room and finally the kitchen/breakfast room which is flooded with natural light from the double aspect windows and French doors that give access into the garden. The room enjoys a wealth of units as well as space for freestanding appliances to be inset.

All the bedrooms are a great size and all benefit from fitted wardrobes whilst two of the bedrooms enjoy en suite showers. Completing the upstairs is the three-piece family bathroom.
Externally, the home is accessed via electrically operated wrought iron gates which leads onto the driveway and in turn to the attached single garage which benefits from light and power. The remainder of the front is laid to lawn, edged by well stocked flower beds.
Of the grounds, there is a mixture of paddocks and orchard with the orchard enjoying a variety of Heritage fruit trees. The current owners have also created a vegetable and fruit garden and at present the strawberry and raspberry plants are doing exceptionally well.
The paddocks are predominantly flat and are framed by stock wire fencing. Of note is that there is an alternative access to the paddocks where any parties looking to use the ground for equestrian purposes, may wish to utilise for the access of a horse lorry/horse box.
The final parcel of land has been utilised for the growing of Christmas trees and within this area are a great selection of trees at all different heights and it is here where planning in principle has been obtained for the construction of between four - six new homes.
What is Planning in Principle
Permission in Principle is a relatively new route for obtaining planning permission that came into effect on 1st June 2018. Essentially, Permission in Principle is designed to increase the efficiency of the planning process and deliver more homes.
Current planning applications require a substantial amount of information upfront, even for outline planning permission. Permission in Principle separates the absolute basics of ‘principle of development' – land use, location and amount of development – from everything else ("technical details").
Via this route, you only need to establish the principle of development once. Then you can go on to apply for approval of the technical details, which will include the appearance of the building and its compliance with local and national policy requirements for space and amenity (outdoor spaces etc).
Ultimately, the Permission in Principle route is an alternative way of obtaining planning permission for housing-led development. This route involves two stages:
The First Stage: Establishing Whether a Site Is Suitable in Principle
So how can a site be established as ‘suitable in principle'?
The Permission in Principle route is available for any site that might accommodate minor housing-led development, provided the development is not on land that is subject to Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) or Habitats legislation.
Permission in Principle is subject to location, land use and the amount of development. The upper limits of the proposed development are up to nine homes, with less than 1,000 sqm of commercial floorspace and a site of less than one hectare.
Mixed-use sites with retail, offices or community spaces can be granted Permission in Principle, but housing must always occupy the majority of the overall scheme. Additionally, non-housing development should be compatible with the proposed residential development.
The Second Stage: Assessing Detailed Development Proposals
After Permission in Principle is granted, the proposal will then be assessed in greater detail. This is known as Technical Details Consent (TDC).
What is Technical Details Consent?
Following the grant of Permission in Principle, the site must then receive a grant of Technical Details Consent before the development can proceed. This is effectively the same as granting planning permission. A Technical Details Consent application should include plans and supporting documents such as a Design and Access Statement or any statutory requirements such as conservation or listed building assessments.
