THE PROPERTY
Garden Cottage and The Walled Garden form part of the historic Lanwades Park Estate. Lanwades Hall, formerly owned by the Animal Health Trust and sold by Jackson-Stops and Merrifields in 2016 was built in 1907, two impressive Gate Lodges form the main entrance to the Hall. Garden Cottage and The Walled Garden is located adjacent to what is now the main entrance to Lanwades Park, home of The Animal Health Trust.

There is now an exciting and unique opportunity to purchase the property as a whole with potential for further enhancing an attractive residential property and alternative uses for The Walled Garden (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents).

GARDEN COTTAGE & PADDOCK
Garden Cottage is built of solid red brick construction under a predominantly pitched peg tiled roof.

The accommodation includes an entrance porch, hall, two reception rooms, kitchen, shower room, cloakroom and three bedrooms to the first floor. There is vehicular access to the rear, gardens to the front and side.

To the front of Garden Cottage is a fenced paddock of about 0.45 acre adjoining the prestigious main entrance to Lanwades Park.

THE WALLED GARDEN
Adjoining to the west is The Walled Garden. Built of ornate red brick construction with a number of former garden outbuildings built into the wall, this once comprised the formal kitchen gardens to Lanwades Hall and enjoys the backdrop of the magnificent wider setting of Lanwades Park.

In more recent times, the Animal Health Trust have converted the existing buildings and further developed part of site creating around 4,300 sq ft (GIA) of operational buildings comprising kenneling, catteries, storage and ancillary service areas.

The site is ideally suited to a continuation and expansion of the recent or similar use, but also exciting potential for alternative uses subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

The approximate Gross Internal Floor Areas (GIA) and site area are as follows:

Buildings (GIA) 398.05 sq m (4,285 sq ft)
Walled Garden 4,067 sq m (1 acre)
Site area 6,541 sq m (1.76 acres)

USES AND PLANNING
Garden Cottage was originally constructed as the gardener’s cottage for residential use but more recently has been used for staff accommodation. It is most likely that the property will be used in the future as a private residence with gardens and an attractive amenity paddock.

The Walled Garden was originally constructed for the production of plants and vegetables for the Hall. It has most recently been used as kennels and catteries, with associated exercise and training areas. The Walled Garden has exciting potential for a number of alternative uses, subject to obtaining planning permission. The key issues influencing a change of use are: the Listed status of the adjacent Lanwades Hall and how an alternative use may impact on adjoining uses. The Walled Garden has however been used for commercial use but in conjunction with the Trust’s use of the ‘Park’. The site and buildings are located in the ‘Countryside’ so Town Centre uses are unlikely to be considered as appropriate. We believe the local planning authority would be supportive of uses within Class B1 or other small scale uses perhaps within Class D1 of the Use Classes Order, all reviewed on their merits. The buildings are not Listed by English Heritage, but may be considered to be within the curtilage the Hall which is Listed Grade II.
