The site extends to 0.73 acres (0.3 Ha) and is relatively flat. It is greenfield in nature having previously formed the garden and outdoor area of the adjacent Barchester Mount Vale Care Home. The site benefits from its relatively secluded setting due to its tree lined boundaries and is within convenient walking distance of a range of local amenities.
The surrounding area comprises a diverse range of occupiers and uses including care, educational and retail. It is assumed that future development will share the existing access from Yafforth Road with Barchester Care Home.
