Swainshill, Hereford


Guide price

** Sold for £181,000 ** ***For sale by Online Auction on Wednesday 18th November opening at 9am and closing from 6pm*** An all too rare opportunity to purchase a valuable freehold building plot of a generous size with detailed planning permission for a detached two storey 4 bedroom dwelling and detached car port. The site is tucked away from the main road and has just 2 near neighbours. The attractive scheme is ideal for buyers wanting to self build as it has a unique internal layout but equally could be attractive to developers/builders.


Swainshill is a small rural village found just 3.5 miles from Hereford centre along the B438 Hereford to Kington road. This lovely rural setting enjoys a particularly nice outlook to the north towards Credenhill and Tillington woods and there are a range of attractive footpaths very close by.

Facilities can be found in Hereford city itself and more locally in the villages of Credenhill and along Kings Acre Road.
