Rakelands, London Road, Rake, Liss, Hampshire, GU33 7PH
Withdrawn After

Rakelands would have started life as an impressive single family dwelling and some of the features of this period are still visible internally.

In more recent times the property has operated as a care facility and is arranged as 14 bedrooms with supporting accommodation including communal lounges, a commercial kitchen, laundry room and numerous bath/shower rooms which are dotted around the building. Outside in a separate detached building is an indoor swimming pool.

Rakelands is set on a plot of 0.56 hectares (1.4 acres) which includes a large car parking area to the front and gardens to the front, side and rear.

Potential future uses for the property include refurbishment and continued use as a care facility or restoration of the existing building to its former use as a splendid single family dwelling. Other residential uses, such as conversion, may also have merit while, alternatively, demolition and site re-development may also be a possibility, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
