RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY
A superb late Victorian House built around 1900, which stands in 1.34 acres of landscaped grounds abutting open fields and enjoying rural views.
This handsome property has been lovingly restored and sympathetically developed over the years to create a family home with character.
The property includes a spacious self-contained leisure suite with swimming pool, gym and relaxation room overlooking the gardens. In addition, there is a cosy home cinema, ideal for family film nights.
In 2016 the current owner was granted planning permission to create nine tasteful apartments in the house itself and for two large detached family homes to be built within the grounds.
The plans can be viewed at https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/ under planning number 16/00003/FUL (Apartments) and 19/00937/FUL (Detached homes).
Additional information regarding the planning consents secured is available upon request from our office including all layout plans for both the conversion and new builds.
