An elevated south facing chalet bungalow with tremendous scope for updating on 0.5 acre garden with potential plot (stp) and adjoining 2 bedroom bungalow. Available as a whole or in two lots.
LOT A Rick Stones is a detached chalet style house commanding an elevated position with glorious views across the town and to the hills beyond. It is believed to have been built in 1960 and is constructed of stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof. Internally there is a good sized sitting room with view and wood panelled walls, dining room, study and kitchen on the ground floor with two large bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. The house now requires a programme of complete updating and modernisation or potential replacement (subject to planning consents). The plot measures 0.51 acres and with the adjoining Rondel total 0.64 acres. The garden at the front of Rick Stones slopes away down to a level terrace which has potential for a building plot in its own right (subject to planning consents).
LOT B The Rondel is a detached two bedroom bungalow built in 1983 measuring 457 sq ft (42.4 sq m) with sitting room, kitchen and bathroom currently let out on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement. There is space at the front for parking a number of cars along with a car port and to the rear is a good sized garden. Currently accessed via a shared drive there is pp for its own access off Castle Hill Lane. Rick Stones and The Rondel are available together as a whole or separately but The Rondel will not be sold prior to Rick Stones. Buyers to satisfy themselves on stamp duty obligations.
The properties are approached via a private drive with The Rondel having a right of way over it. Rick Stones has a large garden to the front with a pond and behind and to the side are two good sized sheds/workshop. An external door leads to a cellar under the house. A path through the hedge leads to a further area of garden with former ‘snooker room'.
The garden to the rear of The Rondel is about 45 ft (13.7m) with space for a GARAGE/car port (subject to necessary consents).
The properties are located in the conservation area and designated countryside therefore with a presumption against further development. A pre-application to Wiltshire Council 17/0116/PREAPP indicated the demolition and replacement of Rick Stones would be acceptable.
