For sale by online auction starting on Monday 17th August 2020, please contact the auction team for details on how to bid. Large extended detached castle style building with over 2500 Sq Ft of accommodation in extensive grounds (approx 0.75 acres) 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 consents, and with it sitting on a generous plot there is the scope to apply for planning for multiple units. 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.
