Property Description

Full description

Juniper House is a former school dating back to 1860 situated on a total plot estimated to be in the region of 1.5 to 2 acres in total. Great scope exists to split this into two remarkable residences { the east wing and the west wing } as currently four fifths has been renovated from the East Wing to the West End of the School Hall to a delightful family home with four bedrooms whilst the rest is mostly a blank canvas to develop and sell on, given it has already two distinct separate driveways. The buyer may prefer to combine to create one vast residence of approx. 6000 square feet or indeed devote a part of the property to running a business. The site has simply an abundance of hard standing for parking for so many vehicles and indeed has a temporary but substantial garage structure for numerous vehicles as the current owner restores classic cars. Having stunning far reaching views and enjoying high levels of privacy this is a unique property with great appeal. Subject to planning it could also be utilised for numerous commercial opportunities, such as a childcare nursery, bed and breakfast, kennels and cattery, restaurant or mixed residential and commercial usage.
