Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION
The property comprises a substantial detached former Victorian School building of brick and blue slate construction with stone embellishments including stone mullions and bell turret. The former school rooms of the building are attractive being open to the rafters and having some original roof trusses exposed. We understand the property is a Grade II Listed Building.

In essence the layout comprises a central area which is believed would have formed the original School House on two floors with a significant single storey classroom attached on the western side of the School House and similarly to the eastern side. The surface of the site is largely made up and has a number of mature trees. Vehicular access is at the south west corner with pedestrian access at two points along the frontage. The property has a frontage to Postland Road and a flank frontage to Cloot Drove.

The total site area is estimated to be about 0.5 Acres.

Internally the property is currently stripped out to a basic shell.

The Victorian School is now surplus to requirements following the remodelling and re-opening of St Guthlacs School in September 2014 as a new primary academy school.

PLANNING CONSIDERATIONS

We understand the property is a Grade II Listed Building.

It may be that the property could be suitable for alternative uses. From pre-application advice that has been received in the past in 2008 and November 2014, it would appear that consideration may be given to residential conversion, but from the correspondence it is likely the Planning Authority would be very keen to retain the overall character and plan form of the building. At the time, they particularly referred to the fact that sub-dividing the principal rooms either vertically or horizontally would not be appropriate. They make reference to the fact that the School House itself may be more suitable for residential accommodation as it was originally and they refer to the remainder of the building as perhaps being appropriate for community use.

Interested parties are advised to make any planning enquiries direct to the local Planning Department of South Holland District Council, Council Offices, Priory Road, Spalding, Lincolnshire PE11 2XE
Telephone: 01775 764703

DEVELOPMENT CLAWBACK
The property will be sold with an uplift provision in favour of the vendors whereby the vendors will retain 35% of any development uplift there may be if planning consent is granted for any additional units for any other purpose within the curtilage of the existing site outside the footprint of the existing building. Such clawback would be for a period of 25 years.
