The lot, described as being 'located in a small leafy residential close', attracted a flurry of bids as bidders aimed to buy themselves a key plot of land. The 0.20 acre plot of land eventually sold for £344,000.

The brochure explained the approved plans provide a modern property with accommodation comprising large open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, utility room, two bedrooms and two cloakrooms. There will also be space for ‘ample’ gardens and off-road parking.

There is potential to create two further bedrooms and a family bathroom in the loft space, if granted permission.
