Barrow Road, Shippon, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX13


Guide price

A development opportunity located on the outskirts of Shippon village to the west of Abingdon with detailed planning consent to build two large c.2,750 sq.ft. 5 bedroom detached stone and brick houses with double garages.

Planning permission was granted by Vale of White Horse District Councul in 2016 under application reference: P16/V0416/Ful. The pre-planning conditions relating to materials and Sustainable Drainage Scheme have been cleared and commencement of works has started with a certificate of lawfulness issued on 1st October 2019.

The new dwellings benefit from retaining permitted development rights so there is considerable scope to increase the floor-space of the new houses. Any p.d. would need to be as part of a separate building operation to the new house builds.

A further application has been submitted under reference P19/V2274/FUL for the erection of 2 dwellings and planning permission has now been granted for this alternative scheme.


The existing detached dwelling offers flexible accommodation incorporating a self-contained annexe with a separate garage. The house is currently occupied and has recently been decorated and offers the flexibility of immediate accommodation before the new houses are built. The detached garage would also be ideal as an on-site office or to store materials if desired.


Set in larger than average gardens of over a third of an acre, it is laid mainly to lawn with conifer and beech hedges to the front and western borders. There are currently two entrance gates, with planning for one new central entrance. The gardens also benefit from some mature trees. There is one recently built stone house bordering to the east, and open (green-belt) fields to the west.
