Occupying a level plot of about one acre this interesting detached property, offers a number of alternatives including development potential for an apartment complex of potentially 18- 26 flats, comprising one and two bedroom. This was considered by the previous owner, and the current occupiers have offered to contact the council to investigate if it is possible to reinstate the planning! Alternatively with two large work shop areas as well as reception space and ample storage this substantial building would prove ideal for a home business with a self contained 4/5 bedroom first floor flat with two bathrooms and a further one bed ground floor flat. There is extensive parking, potentially for 30 cars, plus an extra large detached double garage and a heated out door swimming pool. A sizeable roof garden overlooks the surrounding plot, and the elevated views plus the easy access location would prove beneficial for business contacts and opportunities.

The original property dates back to the 1820's, formally built as the local Pit Manager's House for Penallta Colliery. After which change of use was allowed as Penallta Rugby Social Club, and then later around 1980 the property was greatly extended and now proved perfect for the current owners who reside on the first and second floors using the ground floor as a very successful and unique vehicle upholstery business.
