The scenario is ideal as it presents a delightful 5 bedroom period property in which you can reside whilst the house is being built as well as a detached former 'Higgler's ' Taylors Workshop perfect for use as a secure lock up for equipment during the build. Alternatively the house could be immediately resold or rented out. When the new house is complete the period property and smaller garden with the detached barn could be updated and sold or rented out. Yorkshire's Finest estimate, when the new house is built, that the value of the current property, with the house and barn updated internally to be approx. £600,000 with the Taylor's Workshop being utilised as an annexe or holiday let accommodation subject to planning. The proposed new house has outline planning permission and therefore the buyer can determine the exact details and size, however we anticipate that based upon the footprint proposed of approx. 3500 square feet, would be worth well in excess of £1,000,000.

The current property which dates back to 1890 is perfectly liveable as it is and benefits from a modern central heating system and a south facing garden and patio. When the new house is built they will BOTH have their own private driveways and there will be no shared driveways at all.

The planning reference number for Kirklees council for the proposed property is 2020/60/90367/E
