1. OPTION A. Would be to seek planning permission to either convert or to knock down and build into a holiday letting unit complex.
2. OPTION B. Would be to seek planning for a large second luxury bespoke house to be built and split some of the land off with this new property.
3. OPTION C. Would be to try and build perhaps two prestige bungalows and also splitting off some of the land to go with the new residential units.
All these options allow for the substantial sized main house to still retain a significant amount of gardens and grounds, whilst also allowing for a private individual or developer to further enhance this beautiful setting into either a commercial home income investment opportunity or a prime residential small bespoke development.
All of the above are subject to obtaining the correct planning approval.
