We are delighted to introduce this exciting opportunity to purchase a plot of land with conditional planning to build a two-bedroom detached home overlooking the idyllic Grand Union Canal. The 420-square-meter plot sits in the corner of Annies Wharf, located just off Hanford Way and Meadow Lane, a popular area for investors.
