Self-build / Custom-build opportunity near Saffron Waldon on a site of approx. 2 acres.

Radwinter Road – Essex

The Site

The Village of Ashdon is right on the borders of Essex and Cambridgeshire. Saffron Walden is 4 miles to the South West. Radwinter Road enters the village from the area called Water End to the South East.

The site is part of a former turkey farming enterprise but has been vacant for some years now. The neighbouring properties on two sides belong to the farm on the opposite side of Radwinter Road to the site and the fourth boundary is with an established residential property. The farmyard opposite has had change of use granted for several of its older buildings giving rise to employment in the open countryside.

Radwinter Road is a much used route for vehicles and cyclists travelling between Ashdon and the B1053 linking Hempstead with Saffron Walden.
