A very rare rural development opportunity in a three-quarter acre plot with planning consent by Shropshire CC (Ref 18/01429/FUL) permitting conversion of a substantial garage/ workshop building into a dormer style two storey cottage with lounge, kitchen, utility room, bathroom and bedroom to the ground floor, plus two further bedrooms plus en-suite to the first floor.

* Bordered By Farmland to Side and Rear

* New Private Driveway

* Superb Level Lawned Gardens

* All Services To Site

This is a wonderful opportunity to create a new residential dwelling within a delightful countryside location, with full planning consent to convert a substantial and most attractive cottage-like stone built garage block standing within the grounds of Sweveneys House, an attractive stone built country cottage which presently stands in around 1.4 acre of parkland gardens adjoining farmland.

The permitted plans share the gardens fairly equally between the existing house and the new cottage with a straight line boundary running the full length of the grounds which will give approximately three quarters of an acre to the cottage.

The proposed cottage will have it's own completely separate independent driveway and will be sold with beautiful gardens bordered by farm fields to the side and rear.

The current building is situated approximately 25 yards from the house and is presently arranged as a double garage with open access through to workshop and an adjoining room (18'9 x 12'7 ) which has been used previously as an occasional guest room and which could easily be used as a home office. The building has good first floor storage enhanced by a number of gabled dormer windows.

The planning consent recently passed by Shropshire County Council (Ref 18/01429/FUL) dated 30 May 2018 gives consent for the building to be converted into an entirely separate two storey residential property with accommodation to include lounge, kitchen, utility room, bathroom and bedroom to the ground floor, plus two further bedrooms plus en-suite to the first floor.

Sweveneys House has mains water and electricity connected, with drainage to a septic tank plus oil fired central heating courtesy of a tank situated near the garage/ workshop building. The purchaser of the garage building will be responsible for the cost of connecting water and electricity to the new dwelling and shall also be responsible for the cost of installing their own oil tank (if required) and re-siting the existing tank nearer to Sweveneys House. The purchaser will also be responsible for the costs of drainage and a condition of the planning consent is that the new property will install a 'Klargester' type bio-disc sewage filtration system.
