PLEASE NOTE: In our opinion, there may be some potential to convert the stable building into perhaps holiday letting units, a detached annex or commercial home office building.
As there is in excess of 10 acres of land under predetermination planning rights, there may also be the automatic possibility of creating up to a further 5,000 square foot agricultural building within the grounds, which our in-house planners will be able to assist with obtaining should any purchaser wish to pursue this opportunity.
