A distinctive period stone property with a varied past and presenting a rare development opportunity, of interest to builders, speculators or private individuals to create a substantial private dwelling or a number of small homes subject to required planning consents.
This extensive stone built period residence has an interesting history through a number of uses, including previously as a hotel and more recently a residential care home. Since closure of the care home in 2010, the property has remained empty awaiting refurbishment. Now stripped out and in need of extensive renovation, the building retains an air of elegance through space and size together with some retained internal features. The ranging accommodation includes 10 ground floor rooms plus provision for bathrooms, laundry and storage whilst at first floor a further 13 bedrooms plus bathrooms.
It is believed the property would split to create a number of smaller dwellings although such changes would be subject to the necessary planning consents and approvals. Complementing the house are sizable gardens and opportunity to create hardstanding and garaging and potential to re-use a second drive. A right of way is enjoyed to one neighbouring dwelling across the first portion of the drive and a second dwelling also has the benefit of a right of way through the main drive which skirts the garden.
