A stunning detached stone building nestled on a glorious garden plot with planning permission for conversion/development into a range of apartments and new houses. The property, which lies within a conservation area, could also be converted back into a single substantial family residence (subject to approval). Although it has been used as a nursing home for a good number of years the current owners have been careful to retain many of the ornate and very characterful original features, which will certainly enhance the finished development. The planning permission (reference 18/0422M) grants permission to convert and extend the existing building into 6no. Apartments and to build two semi detached homes within the grounds. The current accommodation is arranged over four floors including a self-contained second floor apartment and a good sized basement. The garden is a truly glorious feature with a very private and sizable plot. The outside space comprises of an extensive tree lined lawn, a further secluded smaller lawn, a large parking area, two useful brick built outbuildings and a screened-off composting area. There is also a sweeping driveway leading to the parking area, which is accessed through two impressive stone pillars. The nursing home currently comprises of an impressive entrance hall and lobby with a tiled floor, a large living room, dining room, office and kitchen. There are seven bedrooms, three bathrooms, a store and a lift between the ground and first floor. There is also a hugely impressive turning staircase with the most stunning window on the half landing and ornate spindles and handrail. The self contained apartment on the second floor has a living room, three bedrooms, a further bathroom and kitchenette. The basement offers further potential and comprises of a large main chamber and three storage areas. Viewing strictly by appointment. Please see the property brochure or Full details at the bottom of this page for a list of all rooms.
