R2 Low Density Family Property: Partial Sale with Homes Retained

Located along Sixth Avenue was the long held family property and market garden of our clients. We were referred to this family by another of our clients who we assisted on Seventh Avenue. The multigenerational family was well known in the area as they had a strawberry farm and owned multiple properties.

Whilst they wanted to sell, the clients were very clear that they wanted to retain the two significant family homes that they had built on the property.

Due to our client's desire to retain two homes on the property, the selling strategy required us to obtain detailed planning advice and develop a comprehensive brief for potential purchasers to meet this requirement.

The existing family homes were located on either side of a future local road (16m wide). A three lot subdivision was required to allow retention of the two homes. The design of one home and it's proximity to the future road meant that some demolition was required.

  • decommissioning and removal of septic tank once new sewer
