Unique development opportunity in Upton Park
Monday, November 20, 2017
Upton Park was designated a conservation area in 1970, comprising two distinct areas either side of the Datchet Road; one with a medieval core, the other a Victorian development which resulted from Slough’s growth following the arrival of the Great Western Railway in 1838. Together the areas constitute an area of significant historic interest and architectural heritage.
In 1843, land was bought in the area by James Bedborough who built 29 terraced houses and large villas overlooking a park. The estate was made up of three separate blocks - Victoria Terrace, East and West Villas - with communal grounds, billiard room and library and the big attraction was its easy access to Windsor and London by train for commuters. The grounds were sold in 1949 to Slough Borough Council and renamed Herschel Park.
A unique opportunity has now arisen to acquire 27 Upton Park, one of the original West Villas, a four storey detached townhouse with extensive grounds and three garages, totaling approximately 0.23 acres. The property is situated in a sought after location within walking distance of Slough town centre and train station (Crossrail due in 2018) and opposite Herschel Park’s landscaped parkland and lake.
Planning permission was previously obtained to provide four apartments and two, three storey townhouses but this has now lapsed. All interested parties should make their own enquiries prior to making a commitment to purchase. Our clients are looking for cash offers for the freehold interest with a guide price of £675,000. An electronic legal pack is available upon request from our Slough office on 01753 820000. Alternatively, a paper version is available at a cost.
