£90,000 Guide Price
We are delighted to offer to auction this exciting and unique development opportunity in the grounds of West Port House, on the High Street of the hugely popular and desirable town of Linlithgow in West Lothian.
West Port House is an historic Grade A listed building dating back to 1598, with the seller amazingly being only the second owner of the property in more than 400 years!
Significant investment of the fabric of the building, including key repairs to stonework and roof, has taken place during the four years of current ownership, and this Garden Annex development is the last element of a truly stunning transformation, with three apartments having already been created within the building. This final stage of development will complete the picture and offers an outstanding opportunity to create a fabulous and charming home.
The development opportunity comprises part conversion of former storerooms within this historic building and part new build to be adjoined (see plan and artist impression pictures) and is being sold with full listed building and planning consents for the creation of a stunning two bedroom ground floor dwelling, to include unique features including entrance hall with skylight, bright lounge with a vaulted ceiling, two double bedrooms, kitchen with feature stone fireplace, large bathroom and utility room. The computer-generated images and floor plans included are for illustration purposes only and will help give potential purchasers a flavour of the stunning results that could be created but, of course, there is scope for the new owner to apply their own unique stamp. An independent valuation suggests that the completed project valuation would be around £300,000 but potential purchasers should satisfy themselves of this as part of their due diligence.
West Lothian Council listed building consent - reference 0314/LBC/19 - includes approval to install double glazed sash and case timber windows, internal insulation and connection to mains gas, and the full planning consent is available under reference 0313/FUL/19. The plot has access to mains gas and electricity, mains water and sewage but the purchaser will be required to arrange all connections. The seller is also willing to arrange introduction to the key professionals who have played a role in the transformation of West Port House to date, including the specialist stonemason who has undertaken the stone repairs and renewal.
Unique opportunities like this, in such a prestige location, are rarely available and we expect strong levels of demand for this stunning and historic development from a number of different buyer types. Early expression of interest is strongly recommended.
** NOTE TO PURCHASERS – The draft outline of the plot boundaries being included with the Garden Annex site are as shown and included within the legal pack. Separate Title Plan(s) will be formally produced on completion of sale **
