This is a rare opportunity to purchase a substantial detached property set in a generous plot of 2.9 acres OTA. This former nurseries has planning permission for demolition of the existing dwelling and the construction of a new detached house of approximately 2255sqft.

The existing dwelling house has been previously extended to the rear and side at ground floor level with flat-roof construction. Overall the property is in a poor state of repair and is suffering from rainwater ingress after a long period of lying vacant.

Upon entering the property through the Front Porch, the Hallway provides access through to the living room and upstairs accommodation. The Living Room is a large room which provides access through to the kitchen at the rear. The Kitchen is also a good size and provides doors off to a large Garage to the side and downstairs Bathroom. A rear door opens out on to a Porch providing access to the rear of the property. Moving upstairs, are two Double Bedrooms and a third Box Room. A Family Bathroom is situated to the rear and loft access can be gained via the hallway.

Externally there is a large area of hardstanding between the road and the property which offers parking for multiple vehicles. A hardcore track leads down the side of the first paddock through to a larger field/paddock area to the rear. Our vendors have advised that new drains have been recently installed in this field.

In 2018 planning permission was obtained for the 'Erection of one dwelling following the demolition of the existing property'. We understand the square footage of the proposed new dwelling to be 2255sqft. The new dwelling would also be situated further back from the road that the existing dwelling.

The planning reference for the application is 18/00702/FUL. Outline plans are detailed overleaf with further information available from the Chorley Borough council planning portal.
