Property description

The property comprises an area of 0.65 acres (from plan) of unmanaged woodland which has been allowed to flourish. Unusually, the land lies alongside the origional line of the Cheltenham/Andoversford, Dowdeswell rail line which was abandoned pre 1930, however the sealed remains of the Sandywell Park rail tunnel are still visible in the woods, but are not included.

The property is bounded to one side by the main A40 and on the other by an unamed road from which there is access.

Location

Cheltenham Spa is a town of around 120,000 lying upon the edge of the Cotswolds at the junction of the A40 to Oxford at the M40, the A417 to Swindon at the M4 and with the M5, some 40 miles south of Birmingham, 35 miles north of Bristol and 85 miles from London. Cheltenham is also a rail hub offering extensive services.

As a Regency spa town, tourism is an important sector in Cheltenham's economy, but it also has some employers include food processing, aerospace and electronics businesses. The Government's GCHQ electronic surveillance centre employs around 4,000 in the town and is known for its "doughnut-shaped" building. Other employers include Vertex Data Sciences, GE-Aviation, Chelsea Building Society, Endsleigh Insurance, Archant, UCAS University Admissions Service, Kohler Mira, Zurich Finance, and Spirax-Sarco Engineering. A number of design agencies and businesses are located in the town including Weird Fish and SuperGroup PLC owners of Superdry fashions.

Cheltenham is a regional shopping centre, home to department stores including Cavendish House and a recently developed John Lewis. 

The property is located alongside with a long frontage to the A40 close to the attractive hamlet of Dowdeswell, some 4 miles to the east of Cheltenham, 2 miles to the west of Andoversford, facing across the A40 the hamlet of Whittington and to the rear of the grounds of Dowdeswell Manor. The site lies at the junction of the A40 with a turn off to Dowdeswell (Sandywell Lane|)  so providing a secondary road frontage from which access is possible.

*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 £2,400 (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 acceptance and confirmation by the Vendor. The highest bid will be presented to the Vendor, the Vendor will have to either accept, decline or make a counteroffer, within the confirmation period. Should the Vendor decide to make a counteroffer, then a private link will be sent to the Highest Bidder advising of the offer the Vendor is willing to accept. The Highest Bidder will be obliged to 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.
