A rare and outstanding opportunity! Laywell House is a substantial detached property which was most recently used as a residential care home with three self contained 'independent living' flats. Exuding character and charm, the original building was constructed circa 1835 as a grand manor house and has received two significant extensions during the 1960s and 1970s.
In addition, there is a detached two bedroom bungalow nestled in the South Western corner of the site. Laywell Bungalow was built circa 1970 for the resident matron and offers well proportioned accommodation with double glazed windows and a gas heating system via radiators.
Situated in a favoured area of Brixham and within striking distance of the town centre and its renowned harbour, the site has two independent vehicular access points from Summer Lane and comprises substantial level areas laid to lawn with areas of hardstanding offering parking for multiple vehicles.
The potential is palpable with the lot offering multiple opportunities including conversion of Laywell House to provide multiple residential units and further development of the grounds. Any conversion or development works would be subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
Laywell House offers substantial accommodation and includes a useful basement space. There are three large receptions rooms, a commercial kitchen and a variety of ancillary rooms including offices, laundry room and staff room. A good proportion of bedrooms have en-suite facilities and there are three one bedroom flats located in the most recent extension.
Range of outbuildings including store, greenhouse and garage. Area of hardstanding to rear with garden to front.
Entrance hall, kitchen, two bedrooms, wet room (no W.C.), cloakroom with W.C. and living/dining room.
Garden to rear and hardstanding area for parking.
The site extends to approximately 0.84 hectares (2.08 acres).
A video which includes aerial footage of the site will be available to view via the Clive Emson Website.
