The Cobbles, Lower Peover

Guide price

Bedrooms: 6
A unique chance to build ones own dream home on a fantastic plot, in one of the most sought after rural locations in South Manchester. The Cobbles is a picturesque road in the middle of Lower Peover village, leading to the well known Bells of Peover Pub and the ancient St Oswalds Church, and Barn House stands superbly, boasting large surrounding gardens and a paddock, stretching over both sides of the Peover Eye River, in all extending to just under 3.7 acres.

A large modern family house constructed in the 1970's currently stands on the site, along with a pretty, small adjacent Thatched cottage/guest house. The house and cottage are in a state of disrepair, and the site today is ripe for development again.

Plans have already been approved by Cheshire West Borough Council for an extensive enlargement and remodelling scheme of the existing property under permitted development rules, which provides consent for a much larger main house of up to around 9000 square feet (gross external), and there is an opportunity for a further planning application to be submitted to the buyers exact requirements for demolition of the existing house and new replacement dwelling. The thatched cottage will need to stay as part of the application we are advised. Although not a Listed building it is considered a Heritage asset.

The site is sold Freehold.

Significant work has been undertaken by a highly respected local Planning consultant, who is available to provide advice to any interested parties as to what may, or may not be possible, which might also include new entrances and driveways, possibly from further down The Cobbles, or from Middlewich Road along side the River frontage, which would make for a stunning approach. The gardens are large, and there is a significant area of largely self seeded woodland, a good deal of which we are advised by the planning consultant can be cleared to open up the site to the river frontage, to much more of a complete garden plot.

Please see the attached link to the planning file, detailing the house as existing, the approved permitted development scheme, and finally an indicative replacement dwelling scheme (not approved) which may be possible based on the approved application, subject to verification by Cheshire West Borough Council. Of course an incoming buyer does not have to use these plans, and can design something to suit their own requirements.
