Property description

An irregular shaped greenfield site totalling approximately 0.88 hectares (2.17 acres). The site boundary to the south is defined by a mature hedgerow interspersed with trees and the northernmost boundary is defined in part by Bakers Lane. The site is situated adjacent to a residential development scheme undertaken by Bovis.


Long Buckby is a large village lying about 11 miles south east of Rugby and 10 miles north west of Northampton accessed via the B5385. The village lies just to the east of the A5 and M1 motorway, which can be accessed at junction 17 (at its junction with the M45 motorway) and junction 18. Long Buckby railway station is within 500 metres of the property and provides regional rail services as well as direct links to London Euston and Birmingham New Street with journey times of 1 hour and 20 minutes and 50 minutes respectively.

The site lies on the south side of Bakers Lane to the south west of the village centre in a mainly residential area.


Outline planning permission was granted at appeal (subject to conditions) on 13/03/2017 for a 72 bed care home, 10 extra care units and 7 extra care bungalows. 40% of the extra care dwellings are to be affordable. The appeal reference is APP/Y2810/W/16/3159236 and the orginal planning reference is DA/2015/1098. The planning consent has now lapsed.

The site may lend itself to alternaive forms of development, subject to obtainiing the necessary consents. Previous applications have been granted for commercial development and we undersand that applications for residential purposes would be looked oin favourably by the Local Planning Authority and prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries - West Northamptonshire Council (0300 126 7000) www.westnorthants.gov.uk

Please note that an overage clause relating solely to residential development exists but this does not apply to the existing care home consent (refer to the legal pack).

*Terms & Conditions

Buyers are strongly advised to read these terms and conditions, and check the Special Conditions and any applicable Addendum, prior to bidding on a Lot. Additional costs, charges and encumbrances may apply for Buyers once they have made a successful bid in relation to a property.

  1. The reserve price is the minimum price at which the property can be sold at auction.
  2. Where a guide price (or range of prices) is given, that guide is the minimum price at which, or range of prices within which, the seller may be prepared to sell on the date on which the guide price, or range of prices, is published. The sale price, whether prior to or at the auction, can be above or below the guide price depending upon market activity. BidX1 and the seller accept no responsibility for any losses, costs or damages incurred by a buyer as a result of relying on any guide price. The buyer must decide how much they should bid for any Lot. All guide prices are quoted subject to contract. Guide prices given by BidX1 or the seller cannot be accepted by the buyer as being a professional valuation for any purpose in accordance with the requirements or guidance notes of relevant professional bodies or other authorities.
  3. Both the guide price and the reserve price may be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these guides are not misleading, it is possible that the reserve price set for any Lot may exceed the previously quoted guide price (as the seller may fix the final reserve price just before bidding commences).
  4. The guide price for the Lot does not include the administration fee of £1,295 (inclusive of VAT) for all properties up to £49,999, and £1,500 (inclusive of VAT)for all properties £50,000 and above charged by BidX1. In the case of a joint agent this administration fee will be £2,400 (inclusive of VAT). In addition, the guide price does not include VAT on the sale price, or any additional costs, charges or encumbrances that might apply to some Lots and/or some buyers. The Special Conditions of Sale of the seller, and any applicable Addendum, will state if there are other costs, charges or encumbrances and whether the seller has elected to charge VAT on the sale price.
  5. To participate in the sale BidX1 must hold a minimum amount from all bidders. This participation amount and administration fee is fully refundable in the event that you are not the successful purchaser. For example, a participation fee of £4,795 comprises £3,500 relating to your bidder security (partial deposit payment) and an administration fee payable directly to BidX1. A higher participation amount may be payable depending on the reserve price of the Lot.
  6. Please note that Lots may be sold or withdrawn prior to auction.
  7. All lots sold “Subject to Vendor Confirmation” will be subject to the acceptance and confirmation by the Vendor. The highest bid will be presented to Vendor, the vendor will have to either accept, decline or make a counter offer the highest bid within the confirmation period. Should the Vendor decide to make a counteroffer, then a private link will be sent to the Highest Bidder advising the offer the Vendor is willing to accept. The Highest Bidder will have to either accept or reject the Vendor’s counteroffer. The Vendor reserves the ultimate right, apart from the auctioneer, to accept and to decline to sell to the highest or any bidder, without giving any reasons.
  8. No information, statement, description, quantity or measurement contained in any sales particulars or given orally or contained in any webpage, brochure, catalogue, email, letter, report, docket or hand out issued by or on behalf of BidX1 or the seller in respect of the property shall constitute a representation or a condition or a warranty on behalf of BidX1 or the seller. Any information, statement, description, quantity or measurement so given or contained in any such sales particulars, webpage, brochure, catalogue, email, letter, report or hand out issued by or on behalf of BidX1 or the seller are for illustration purposes only and are not to be taken as matters of fact. Any mistake, omission, inaccuracy or mis-description given orally or contained in any sales particulars, webpage, brochure, catalogue, email, letter, report or hand out issued by or on behalf of BidX1 or the seller shall not give rise to any right of action, claim, entitlement or compensation against BidX1 or the seller. All bidders must satisfy themselves by carrying out their own independent due diligence, inspections or otherwise as to the correctness of any and all of the information, statements, descriptions, quantity or measurements contained in any such sales particulars, webpage, brochure, catalogue, email, letter, report or hand out issued by or on behalf of BidX1 or the seller.
