This modest but very attractive residential development project is at Holmer House Farm on the northern outskirts of the City of Hereford and just off the A49 Hereford to Leominster Road.

It is the residual part of a larger scheme for 100 residential units following the sale to Bloor homes of 83 plots to add to their current main residential development at Holmer West.

The property now for sale comprises the original farmhouse, two barns and about 2.20 acres with consent for a mixed and individual project to provide in total 17 units.

This development also benefits from a number of special advantages, in particular regarding the provision of services, limited S106 contributions and no affordable housing requirements.

Overall a very attractive residential proposition with the availability of full planning consent.
