About the property

In total - 8 plus Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, 6 plus Reception Rooms, 3 Kitchens. LPG Central Heating. Extensive Range of Outbuildings. Parking. Gardens, Woodland and Grazing Land. In all about 15.5 Acres

High Croft is a substantial mainly single storey care home and historically was a stables/riding school. It is traditionally built with rendered colour washed elevations under a tiled roof and was substantially extended in the 1980's. It was used until very recently as a care home by Autism Wessex.

The accommodation is currently divided into 3 areas:-

2 Offices, Kitchen, Lounge, Dining Room, 2 Bedrooms and Bathroom.

Lounge, Activity Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Laundry, 3 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms.

Living Room, Kitchen, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms (One En Suite), Bathroom and Meeting Room.

The property is well set back and screened from the lane being approached through double wooden gates onto a long driveway leading to extensive parking.

There is an extensive range of outbuildings:-
DETACHED BUILDING (The Blue Room) with Classroom, Kitchen/Dining Room and Toilets.

The gardens are down to lawn and there is also woodland.

The grazing land is principally down to grass. It is not subject to any grants, tenancies or public footpaths.

The existing Planning Use Class is understood to be Class C2 - Residential Institutions (Residential care homes, hospitals, nursing homes, boarding schools, residential colleges and training centres).

There is excellent potential subject to planning for a whole range of uses or redevelopment which might:-

* For use as a single private dwelling
* Demolition for re-development of a new dwelling
* Nursery School or School
* For use of the land for Caravans and Camping
* Outdoor Pursuit Centre
* Holiday Cottage Complex

Detailed investigations should be made with the local Planning Authority.

Autism Wessex, as a charity, are legally bound to obtain the best financial consideration and to share in any future increase of value arising from a change in circumstances in relation to the property and land (eg building of additional new units) which may not be envisaged at the time of sale.

High Croft and the land will therefore both be subject to development uplift/overage provisions (exact terms and period to be confirmed).
