Development opportunity to convert existing 2 storey red brick stable with full planning permission into 2 storey residential dwelling and a single storey extension set in 0.23 acres.*FOR SALE BY INFORMAL TENDER 11TH JANUARY 2017*

Semi rural location, within easy access of local amenities such as primary schools, church, pubs and bus links. For sale by informal tender. Tender date 11th January 2017

Situated just off Holmeswood Road, sitting in between the sought after villages of Mere Brow and Rufford, surrounded by rural countryside, The Stable has a huge amount of potential. The towns and villages of Ormskirk, Southport and Preston are all easily accessible. Train links are nearby in Rufford, taking you to Preston and Ormskirk.
The property set in approximately 0.23 acres was believed to be a stable many years ago, for farm workers from the Mere. The property is currently of red brick construction, the east and south elevations are rendered, with a tilled roof with a timber lean – to on the south of the building and a timber shed to the east.

The Stables were granted FULL planning consent on 4th October 2014 (planning reference 2016/0262/FUL)

The external timber structures are to be demolished and replaced by a single storey extension to the South constructed in random stone and a ‘lean – to’ extension on the East of the building, constructed from brickwork to match the existing building. This elevation of the property will have 2 french doors leading into the garden, flooding the ground floor with natural light.

Entrance will be through the existing stable door to the west of the property, off road parking and front garden areas will also be situated here. Upon entry to the ground floor, there is a large lounge, kitchen diner with French doors to the rear gardens and a family bathroom.

Up the central stair case to the first floor you will find the master bedroom with dressing room. The dressing room could be utilised as a W.C. should you require an upstairs bathroom. There is also a second bedroom and store room located on this floor.

Original features of the property are to be conserved, such as the unique stable door on the first floor.

Two Velux roof windows on the first floor will allow the property to become flooded with light.

Externally the main gardens are tight to the south and east elevations. The whole plot totals 0.23 acres of agricultural land which has previously been used for keeping a pony. Please note this parcel of land cannot be used for formal gardens, it must be kept as ‘agricultural land’ ideal for keeping chickens or for extra space.

A new timber fence is to be erected between 1 Rufford Cottages and the subject property. A right of way for maintenance will exist between both parties, this will exist either side of the fence.
