*DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL* *UNCONDITIONAL OFFERS ARE INVITED* A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase this superb period property, which is set into approximately 1 acres of grounds (0.967) of land. Offering the potential for development (subject to any necessary planning consents), is this stone built, 4 bed detached residence which provides extensive living accommodation extending to approximately 2,400 sqft. The property could be occupied as one single dwelling, with the potential to extend the existing property. Or alternatively we have had an indicative drawing showing the potential (subject to local authority approval) for 2 substantial detached houses to be built in the grounds, still leaving the existing dwelling with large landscaped gardens. The site has previously had outline permission for residential development on the entire site to include demolition of the existing dwelling house and outbuilding, planning app: 2005/60/92573/W2. However, purchasers must make their own enquiries with the planning department. The property displays features one would expect from a property of this era, such as deep sunk skirting boards, moulded ceilings, feature fireplaces and a magnificent central staircase. Located within walking distance of well renowned local schooling, the property is conveniently positioned within the highly sought after residential area of Fixby, which is equidistant to both J.24 and J.25 of the M62 motorway network.
