Description

For sale by auction on 17th February 2020, start time 6.30pm at The Village Hotel, Bury, BL9 7BQ. Large extended detached castle style building with over 2500 Sq Ft of accommodation in extensive grounds with an outdoor swimming pool and planning granted for a detached house in the grounds. The planning details can be found on Lancaster City Council website Ref: 17/00439/ful. The property dates back to 1842 and sits in an elevated location with views over Lancaster Castle and extending over Morecambe Bay. This would make an ideal investment project as once refurbishment works on the castle are completed it would make a home of distinction. The castle could be converted to a large family home, holiday lets, apartments, a hotel or a variety of uses subject to planning. This combined with the building plot gives a unique opportunity to the right buyer. The property sits in a quiet location, yet is approx half a mile to the vibrant Lancaster City centre which has a variety of shops, bars and restaurants attracting visitors from far and wide. The number of visitors to the town is going to increase with the planned Eden project also being located in the area. The current owners have had extensive works done on the grounds and border walls. Buyers are advised to check the legal pack before bidding. For viewings please contact the auction team. Auction finance and both telephone and proxy bidding available, please contact the office for further details.

Internal

The property has been extended over the years providing over 2,500 Sq Ft of accommodation. From the front the property boasts extensive open views over Lancaster Castle and beyond to Morecambe Bay.There is a scheme of refurbishment required, however once the works have been completed there is a substantial amount of value that the buyer can add to this unique home.

Externally

The property sits in good sized grounds to all sides with an outdoor swimming pool (in need of refurbishment) and has had planning passed for a separate detached residence to the front. The current owners have spent extensive monies on re building the boundary walls with the property which were in disrepair.
