Mill Farm Drive






Three available - A unique opportunity to purchase an excellent building plot with detailed planning permission for a first class contemporary home



The site is accessed from Mill Farm Dive via a long drive, and is set behind Mill Meadow, a substantial detached house. The gated development consists of three proposed dwellings that work with the contours of the landscape, with the planned accommodation arranged over two floors. Unit A will comprise entrance hall, large kitchen/family room, utility room, cloakroom/w.c and sitting room on the ground floor, with a principal bedroom with en suite shower room and walk in wardrobe, family bathroom and three further bedrooms above, on the first floor. Units B and C differ in layout but are equally progressive and arguably more flexible, with three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the ground floor and a kitchen/dining room, sitting room and principal bedroom with en suite shower room above. All in all, a superb opportunity for either a self/custom builder looking to create their dream home or a builder/developer looking for their next project, as the owner is happy to sell the plots individually or to agree a price for all three.


All three units will have parking, Units A & C have integral 6x3m garage, Unit B has 6x3m carport/lean-to – all with EV charge points. All three properties have good outside space that makes the most of the location. The site is serviced, with connections bought along to the head of the shared driveway, and the current owners have undertaken some good retaining work below the plots. They have also commissioned several site surveys, and these will be available to a prospective buyer.


The plots are located in a quiet, gated enclave at Paganhill which borders Ruscombe Brook, 1.5 miles West of Stroud. There are shops and amenities close by with Archway, Marling and Stroud High School in easy reach at Cainscross. Stroud town is only a short drive away and was recently voted “Best place to live in the UK 2021″ by the Sunday Times. There is a great community here that benefits from an award winning weekly farmers market as well as a variety of local independent shops and stores, pubs serving locally supplied beers and ciders and plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to eat and socialise at. The recently opened “Five Valleys” shopping centre is of particular note and is certainly worth a visit for a range of market stalls, food stalls and stores. The wider area benefits from a leisure and sports centre, a cinema and a main line railway station, with a regular direct London (Paddington) service. Nailsworth (4 miles) Cirencester (11 miles), Cheltenham (14 miles) and Swindon (26 miles), are all within comfortable driving distance. Junction 13, M5 motorway is approximately 8 miles distant.




Mains service ducts are laid to the site entrance which include mains gas, sewerage and provision for Openreach full fibre for each unit.
