UNIQUE DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY WITH DETAILED PLANNING CONSENT to convert former United Utilities building into FANTASTIC FAMILY HOME. Superb views in UNIQUE RURAL LOCATION on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty. Plans could potentially be altered further subject to gaining the necessary Planning Consent.

This is certainly an opportunity that cannot be missed and discussions with potential purchasers are welcome.

The development opportunity known as Equilibrium House has the benefit of Full Planning Consent for conversion into an impressive private residence.

The property is currently a former United Utilities facility building constructed of the highest quality materials in 1971. This building is now surplus to requirements and Bishops Rock Properties Limited have gained Planning Consent for its conversion.

The proposed conversion will create an impressive range of accommodation in the property, including a feature double height entrance hall with a split staircase and galleried landing looking over the open plan space below. There are also 3 sets of double doors which look out to the front elevation of the property, which enjoys superb views which, on a clear day, are over Nicky Nook, the Forest of Bowland out to the sea, with Morecambe Bay and Coniston Fells in the distance.

The proposed entrance hall is then open plan into the kitchen (with larder off)/dining/sitting area, providing a fantastic family space with sliding doors opening up to the courtyard garden. Beyond there are plans for 2 further reception rooms, boot room, w.c. and utility room to the ground floor.

The proposed ground floor accommodation will total approximately some 2,200 sq. ft. and has been extremely well designed, with open plan modern living, along with a more traditional separate reception space.

On the first floor there is a fantastic galleried landing which will look out to both the front of the property, enjoying the superb views to the Fylde Coast, and also to the courtyard garden.

In total 4 bedrooms will be provided, 3 with an en-suite, and a family bathroom. There are plans for all bedrooms to have glazed doors with a glass balustrade which allow bedrooms 1 and 2 enjoyment of views out to the Fylde Coast, whilst bedrooms 2 and 3 have enjoyment of the views over the courtyard garden. The first floor accommodation is thought to be 1160 sq. ft. approximately.

Planned in the central area of the structure is a courtyard garden which will extend to approximately 2, 300 sq. ft. It is planned that the roof will be removed in this area to provide an enclosed and private space. A sun terrace is also shown and it has been propose that ‘Green Living’ walls are used. This will provide a private and enclosed walled garden which will act as a private sun terrace where you will be able to relax whilst being protected from any breeze. This fantastic open courtyard is truly unique. With the kitchen doors open, the open plan feel of the house can continue into the courtyard space. Potentially a great party house, it is easy to imagine how this area could work. The courtyard could give a great opportunity for outdoor entertaining and could provide a secure outdoor family area, ideal for letting children play. It could also be ideal for pet
owners.

Glazed doors are provided into the double garage and a further large room, which has the flexibility to be used as a gym, games room, garden room, home office or workshop/store. The garage and this additional space extend to a total of 2,300 sq.
ft. or thereabouts.

Externally the property will be entered from a private access road and there will be a driveway which leads up to a turning circle, where entry to the double garage is given.

With regard to this conversion, the existing building will provide the foundations, walls, roof, and the access road is already constructed. Mains services are already present on-site, providing electricity, water, telephone and broadband. This project represents a very high starting base for conversion and is excellent value for money.

The current Planning consent is under 15/00876/FUL. Our clients inform us that the structure is built of very high grade concrete. The borehole tests and laboratory testing has concluded that the building was in ‘as new’ condition, even after 40 years of service. The
Concrete Report is available for inspection at the sole selling agents’ offices, along with other documentation.

The plot itself extends to approximately one acre and would present an excellent serviced plot. A previous Planning Consent for an alternative scheme was granted under 11/00467/FUL which gave larger living accommodation and the information can be viewed on Wyre Borough Council website.

It is without question one of the most unique
development opportunities offered to the market in the local area at present and offers purchasers a fantastic opportunity to stamp their mark on the conversion.

Plans could potentially be altered further subject to gaining the necessary Planning Consent.

This is certainly an opportunity that cannot be
missed and we would welcome discussions with potential purchasers in relation to the property.
