SOLD WITH NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Introduction

Whitehall Place is a genuinely unique property and offers an opportunity to acquire not only a large detached family home set in a large plot but also an enormous former commercial/office building which has potential to be renovated and returned to either commercial use or with the relevant planning, in to a residential unit. In addition there is a further brick barn that is attached to the shop & post office and fronts on to Brampton Road, facing Madley Church. The house was originally built as single storey offices for a plastics factory that sat on the site for many years. Our vendors purchased the site in the late 1970's and converted the building in to a residential property and then in the late 1990's they extended the property by putting on the first floor. This now provides accommodation comprising: entrance hall, living room, dining room, two studies, kitchen/dining room, bathroom and plenty of storage. On the first floor is the spacious landing and five double bedrooms, en-suite bathroom and family bathroom. The large former commercial outbuilding and separate barn are in need of some renovation but their possibilities are endless. In all the property sits in a plot approaching 0.5 acres and is a mixture of formal gardens, lawn and extensive parking area that could also be developed for a further dwelling subject to planning consent.

This area is laid to lawn with various shrubs, flower beds & vegetable garden. There is a huge parking area for numerous vehicles and an area where some derelict sheds have been removed.

Planning information

The current owners successfully applied for planning permission to build a detached bungalow on the rear portion of the original site. This bungalow has now been erected and the vendors intentions are to move in to this property.

In addition in 2015 planning permission was passed for the demolition of the existing house and the erection of four detached dwellings; all the information can be found on Herefordshire Council planning portal under reference P152076/O. This planning has now lapsed.

In 2018 an application to turn the redundant commercial building/offices in to a 3 bedroom bungalow with parking was refused and the details can be found under reference P180464/F.

In 2019 a revised application for a 2 bedroom bungalow was withdrawn and the details can be found under reference P190817/F

New title & boundaries

As the whole site is owned by the same family, the current title documents will need to be amended on sale to reflect the new arrangement between the existing property and new bungalow. The vendors are open minded on how and where the boundaries are located and will agree these with the proposed purchaser prior to accepting an offer.
