A rare opportunity to acquire a nine-acre site in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan

A nine-acre site in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan that offers a multitude of opportunities will go under the hammer on Thursday 14 June.

Taking place at Park Inn Hotel, Llanedeyrn, Cardiff at 5pm, the land off Sunnycroft Lane, Dinas Powys, is being marketed by Bruton Knowles and will be auctioned by Paul Fosh auctioneers.

Stuart Randall from Bruton Knowles’ Cardiff office said:

“This is rare opportunity to secure land in the heart of one of the wealthiest areas in Wales.

“The land would be suitable for a variety of potential uses such as equestrian, camping or smallholding subject to planning.

“Also, due to its location it may offer prospective purchasers a longer-term strategic opportunity, again subject to necessary planning consents.”

The site adjoins a newly proposed Barratt Homes development on the edge of Dinas Powys.

Stuart said the site might also appeal to those people looking for a ‘get-away from it all’ countryside location.

He added:

“Dinas Powys has a population of nearly 9,000 but still offers a genuine village experience. The fifth largest settlement in the Vale of Glamorgan has a post office, shops, a bank, public houses and restaurants.

“In addition, there are great transport links to surrounding areas including Cardiff and J33 of the M4 and railway stations at Eastbrook and Dinas Powys with regular services to Cardiff Central which is just 15 minutes away.

“The site has an interesting history – there is a former quarry and a demolished piggery in the north western corner.”

The village includes excellent schools including Dinas Powys Infants, Murch Junior School and St Andrews Major Church.

The land is located at the southern end of Sunnycroft Lane and is accessed off a bridleway that abuts the western boundary. The western part of the site is densely tree-lined with the eastern part open and covered with undergrowth.

It is identified in the Vale of Glamorgan Local Development Plan as a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation. It is also a former quarry with mineral rights.

Prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries of the local planning department.

Stuart concluded:

“It’s true to say Sunnycroft Lane is one of the most unusual sites we have been asked to sell. But it’s unusual to see useful parcels of land like this coming on to the market in the Vale.”
