Plans for a previously approved project are available upon request.
The Property This substantial single storey four bedroom, three reception room detached property was originally constructed circa 1910 and is situated in outstanding open countryside between the highly desirable villages of Widmerpool and Keyworth. Planning consent was received on 23 May 2008 to double the size of the property to create a substantial family home and the property would therefore appeal to those with a significant budget seeking a project to construct a fine country residence within one of the areas most favoured residential locations. The existing property has been improved by the current owners with three rooms having been combined to create an open plan living/dining kitchen however other elements of the property are now at a recycling stage including refitment of bathrooms, windows etc. The quiet and stunning location of the property is one of its most attractive assets and the property will be of particular interest for those seeking a design & build project with budgets of between £1,5000,000 - £2,000,000 to provide the opportunity to construct a new family home to one’s own design and specification (subject to any necessary consents/approvals). In addition is a 15 acre (approx.) field and a 1,041.8 sq. ft. barn/stable block immediately opposite the property which would be of particular interest to those with equestrian interests and is available by separate negotiation.
