About this property

LOT 06
GUIDE PRICE £45,000+

Level paddock in a rural position not far from Melksham. To be sold in 2 Lots of about 4.5 acres each. Access drive from the road. Potential for stables or barns (subject to consents).

Situation and Description
This parcel of land is situated in a semi-rural position close to the outskirts of Melksham. Shaw is a popular residential village with a mix of period and modern houses. Melksham is an expanding town with a wide range of amenities and a mainline railway station. Other nearby towns include Corsham, Chippenham and Trowbridge.

The level paddock is set away from the road and accessed via a shared entrance track. There is potential to erect stables and there is a substantial hard standing area which could suit a barn (all subject to planning). The land is to be sold in two lots with the potential to purchase both lots.
