Why buy a house when you can buy an entire street instead?!
Who hasn’t wanted to own a property in the Cotswolds?
Well now you can own an entire street in the quintessentially English beauty spot. And for just £1.5million pounds, 24 flats, a three-bedroom maisonette, a cottage, a shop and a range of gardens including courtyards, lawns and parking can all be yours.
Barton Court is situated in Cirencester, otherwise known as the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’ and includes a terraced row of period cottages made from traditional Cotswolds stone vernacular. The terrace is built upon 16th century remains and the whole street is a conservation area making the sale a very rare opportunity. Robert Anthony, a local development expert explains: “The sale of Barton Court offers an investor a unique chance to purchase a substantial part of a very popular street, boasting a range of very appeal character and period property”.
But why is this hot piece of the Cotswolds come on the market you may ask?…The historic half acre of land and property is currently owned by Fosseway Living, a housing association that used the property to provide sheltered accommodation to older people. Now they’ve come up for sale it is likely that the street will still be used for rental properties… unless you have a better idea?
The street is being sold through estate agents Bruton Knowles who intend to sell the property by ‘informal tender’; all bids will be sealed and revealed on the same day at which time the highest offer will be accepted. The closing date for bids is July 26th so if you want to call the street your own then you better hurry.
