Experienced property developers are being invited to table offers for what is arguably the most ambitious multi-million-pound housing development site currently available in Lincoln.

PPH Commercial is marketing 11.63 acres of prime canal side land on the prestigious Burton Waters development, which already has planning permission granted for 100 residential units

Located in one of Lincoln’s most desirable postcodes, Burton Waters is an outstanding mixed use residential and leisure development – centred around a purpose-built inland marina for over 200 boats.

Originally commenced in 1999, it saw more than 140 acres of farmland transformed by building a modern lock system to link the marina to the nearby Fossdyke canal.

Now the development is home to a huge range of amenities – including:

Over 300 prestigious houses and apartments to date
Outstanding restaurant and eating facilities
Newly-completed residential care facility by Barchester
Lake Shore – a 20-acre residential park home by Arbor Living
David Lloyd indoor leisure and tennis centre
Woodcocks public house
On-site retail outlets
Fishing lodges

Nestling in unspoilt beautiful countryside just two miles south of the historic city of Lincoln, Burton Waters has superb road access with the A1 a 30-minute drive away and London can be reached within 2 hours via frequent daily train services.

Planning permission was previously granted for a hotel to be built on part of the site and subsequently planning permission has been granted for one hundred residential units.

Chartered surveyor Tom Penrose, the PPH director who is handling the sale, believes the development site offers a rare opportunity to acquire residential development land in an outstanding location.

He said: “In my opinion, Burton Waters is probably one of the best locations for a new housing development in the whole of Lincolnshire.

“Since the man-made marina was completed, it has proven to be a very popular residential community with occupiers benefitting from its 24-hour security and exclusive environment.

The beautiful vibrant marina, combined with a countryside setting and leisure facilities will definitely appeal to owners who want privacy and an exclusive semi-rural feel.”
