Property ref: 121_305_3770667

In General: 
Unfortunately the property has been neglected and vandalised in recent years. Some floors have been ripped up and ceiling pulled down to steal pipework and cables. Many of the fittings have been ripped out or displaced. All of the grounds and the pond in the front garden are overgrown. Whilst we have made the property safe for inspection and cut back sufficient of the overgrowth to do a walk around inspection, old clothes and caution are advised, and parents are asked to closely supervise children. This can again become a delightful family home but to get there requires a bit more than basic DIY skills.

Future Development: 
Our enquiries suggest no planning application to demolish the existing house and build a new one further back on the site or for additional residential dwellings would likely succeed at this time. Two covenants will be inserted into the sales contract requiring the then owner to pay our clients if planning permission is granted for either option over the next 40 years: (1) 10% of the then value of the exiting house in the event of demolition and rebuilding further back, and (2) 50% of the enhanced land value if planning is obtained for additional dwellings.

Viewing: 
The house is not habitable in its present state. Staff from our Biggleswade or Shefford offices will be pleased to accompany by prior appointment. Applicants are however warned that whilst we have made the property structurally safe to walk through is it is untidy and dirty with broken glass, rubble and brambles. Please wear old clothing and if children accompany applicants they must be kept under close supervision. Satchells will not accept any responsibility for damage or injury.
