Middle Street South, Driffield, East Yorkshire


Guide price



This excellent residential redevelopment site provides an increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a small Town Centre site with full planning consent for six, two and three storey dwellings together with off street parking for nine vehicles.


The site is situated in an ideal location, only a stones throw from the busy high street, with weekly markets and award-winning shops. The town itself offers an excellent range of shopping facilities including national stores such as Boots, Tesco, B&M, W H Smiths and Iceland foods. Driffield is surrounded by a large agricultural community providing both employment and prosperity to the area. Schooling is provided in the form of several primary schools and the Driffield secondary school. Excellent public schooling is also available in Pocklington, Hull and York.

Sport and entertainment are well catered for with well supported clubs offering excellent facilities for rugby, cricket, football, golf, hockey and tennis. Driffield has a modern sports hall with swimming pool, gym and floodlit all-weather sports field. The town and villages provide a host of pleasant pubs and eating houses and visitors to the area are always impressed by the friendliness and hospitality of the local residents.

Situated between York, Bridlington and Beverley, Driffield's true charm is its close proximity to both the coast and countryside. With a train station offering direct routes to cities and the coast, plus an excellent road network, the area is perfectly positioned for both commuting and exploring.
