The property lies on the west side of Blandy’s Lane approximately 150 metres to the north of its junction with Mead Lane in a rural location on the outskirts of the village of Upper Basildon, West Berkshire.

Junction 12 of the M4 motorway lies approximately 6.5 miles to the south-east.
We would refer you to the location plan for further information.


A copy of the 1:2500 Ordnance Survey extract plan within the particulars of sale shows the approximate boundaries of the property edged in red.

The property comprises an irregular shaped parcel of grassed agricultural land of approximately 6.30 hectares (15.57 acres) which gently slopes from north-west to south-east.

The property is contained by post and wire fencing and hedges and is bordered by Blandy’s Lane at its eastern boundary, agricultural land at its northern and southern boundaries and private detached dwellings along Emery Acres Lane and Basildon Primary School at its western boundary.

The property contains a disused chalk pit covered by foliage and two electricity pylons.

Vehicular and pedestrian access to the property can be achieved directly from Emery Acres Lane via a metal farm gate at its western boundary, with a further access from Blandy’s Lane at its eastern boundary.

We would refer you to the photographs of the property for further information.


The property will be sold freehold with full vacant possession available upon completion of the sale.


Mains water and electricity services are believed to be available in the vicinity for connection to the property. However, prospective purchasers are advised to make their own independent enquiries of the individual authorities to verify the capacity and availability of such services.


Our enquiries with the local planning authority reveal that the property has no recent material planning history.

The property is located outside but immediately adjacent to the Upper Basildon Settlement Boundary as defined in the adopted West Berkshire District Local Plan.

We would refer you to the Settlement Boundary Plan accompanying these particulars of sale which shows the subject property edged green.

Due to the property’s edge of settlement position, we believe it could hold potential for some form of development in the long term.

Any planning related queries should be directed to the Local Planning Authority: West Berkshire Council.
