You will need vision, although not too much, to imagine what this pretty plot of land in Warwickshire could be in the not-so distant future.
The 14.5 acre site at Deppers Bridge, Southam, used to hold Stapenhall Farm, a traditional brick and timber farmhouse.
However, that has now been demolished to make way for a new 6,554sq ft, five-bedroom timber framed property – which has already been given planning permission.
CGI images show what the new building should look like when it is complete.
The land is being auctioned off tonight (Thursday) at The Swan Public House, Kineton, near Warwick, at 6.30pm.
It has a guide price of £600,000.
The new house will be set down a long shared driveway with gated entrance and open pasture to both sides.
It will primarily be south facing with views over countryside. The plot stands in Warwickshire pastureland in a lovely rural location, with traditional hedges and fencing.
Inside it will have a reception hall, drawing room, study, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, snug and utility room. Up on the first floor landing there will be four bedrooms (all en suite), a nursery or dressing room and a guest suite
The lower ground level will be the fun floor, complete with entertainment room, gymnasium or swimming pool.
Outside there is ample space to create a beautiful landscaped garden.
It would suit a buyer who is not only keen to build their own home but who also has an interest in horses.
It is well positioned for access to shows, equestrian events, racecourses and studs. There is polo at Rugby and Southam and it is situated in the Warwickshire Hunt.
The location is just to the edge of the village of Deppers Bridge, in open countryside, yet only four miles from M40 (J12) giving ready access to Banbury,
Stratford upon Avon, Leamington Spa, Warwick, the motorway network and intercity rail service Southam, which is about two miles away, provides shopping facilities for day to day requirements along with a primary school, parish church and comprehensive school.
