DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY - A substantial 5 Bedroom stone built house along with a part-derelict stone Cottage in the popular village of North Leigh. The imposing Grade II listed detached village house dates originally from 1735 with later Victorian modifications and requires complete renovation throughout. The property has planning permission for internal and external refurbishment (Ref: 21/00485/LBC). The sale also includes an old stone Cottage in very poor condition with a previous planning permission (Ref: 16/02142/FUL - expired May 2022) to re-instate as a single 1 Bedroom end terrace dwelling on Chapel Lane. The main house has a later rear extension and currently comprises 5 Bedrooms over three floors, a combination of inter-connecting reception rooms, annex/studio potential in a side wing of stone outbuildings, ample gated driveway parking at the rear and walled gardens lying mainly to the front elevation. Internal period features include floorboards, window seats, fireplaces, flagstones, deep skirting boards and picture rails. The Cottage is accessed from the front garden and requires extensive work with no first floor, having not been occupied, we understand, since the 1950's. The previous planning application for this allowed for a single storey extension, car parking along with vehicle and pedestrian access from Chapel Lane.
This is without doubt a fantastic opportunity for imaginative re-development of both the main house and cottage (subject to the relevant consents), prominently positioned in the centre of this West Oxfordshire village. Please note that due to the condition of the property, children will not be permitted on site at viewing appointments.
