Full description

TOTAL PLOT AREA TO INCLUDE MAIN PROPERTY IS 1.4 ACRES (5625m²)

WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY….. to purchase a large appealing PERIOD HOME dating from the mid 1800’s together with OUTLINE PLANNING PERMISSION (Application No. 16/0325C) to build THREE DETACHED HOMES within the grounds. In our view the development of the grounds will not adversely affect this property as it will still retain the front and large side garden. At present the plans show a shared access however a new entrance and drive could be formed.

Also, a Decision Notice from Cheshire East grants permission to undertake the following;
• Provide a new and exclusive access to the Firlands property
• Maintain the current driveway which would serve the 3 new properties to the rear of Firlands (as per the outline permission)
• Demolish the stables and end garage to accommodate for the new houses
• Permission for a new double garage with loft space above (shown on the plans)
 The gas centrally heated accommodation comprises: porch, hall, cloakroom, study, inner reception area, lounge, dining kitchen with fitted units, pantry, conservatory, rear porch, utility room, family room to the ground floor. At first floor level there are three bedrooms, the master having an en suite and separate bathroom. At second floor level there are two further bedrooms and bathroom.

Externally there are extensive outbuildings comprising: boiler house, 3 garages/workshops and stable block for 3 horses. The property is approached off the lane via an electric gate and driveway terminating at the left hand side of the house and garages. The grounds are enclosed and mainly laid to lawn area with mature trees.

Black Firs Lane is probably one of the area’s top addresses being a wide avenue flanked with mature leafy trees with individual executive homes and within a short distance of all amenities and schools in West Heath, and 10 minutes drive of the M6 motorway.
