Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in a lovely location surrounded by open countryside, Mahon House a property offering the opportunity to purchase a beautiful family home with great development potential. A former farmhouse dating back around 200 years, it principally offers a spacious, detached home of four bedrooms and two reception rooms. It is immaculately presented and can be moved straight into and enjoyed. However, for anyone seeking a business opportunity, or a property with numerous features around which to establish a new enterprise, or to develop the land for further housing, it has much to appeal. Mahon House is currently trading as a kennels and cattery and the goodwill of the business is available by separate negotiation. Securing change of use permission could see the extensive outbuildings, kennels and a barn developed for an alternative purpose. Likewise, adjoining buildings could be re-developed as a granny annexe or holiday let, or a pre-planning application to build additional homes on the property could be pursued further. In short, the potential here is limited only by imagination. Certainly, the scale of the plot is substantial with a large tarmac drive and parking area, with extensive and established gardens offering lots of outdoor roaming space for children and pets, all stretching to approximately one acre. The house itself is a strong property, attractive from the outside and with a traditional interior layout. The entrance porch leads into a hallway with the principal reception rooms on either side. Both elegant rooms have beamed ceilings, the lounge has a feature fireplace and the dining room has an alcove with shelving and storage. The breakfasting kitchen, with a utility room opposite, is at the back of the property overlooking the garden, which is accessed via a rear porch leading on to a stone patio area studded with herbs, for outdoor dining. A large picture window ensures the kitchen is lovely and bright, as well as being large enough for everyday dining. The two largest of the three double bedrooms have built in wardrobes and are at the front of the property, with a single room in between which would be ideal as a nursery. The refitted contemporary family bathroom and is light and bright. The property's elevated position maximises the pleasant views, and mature hedging adds to the privacy and security.
