Low Skellgate, Ripon Guide Price £295,000

NEW PRICE - DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY - An exciting and increasingly rare development opportunity, giving the chance to convert this charming listed building, subject to necessary planning consents. Previously the home of the Turks Head Public House and steeped in history, the site currently consists of a part renovated pub with spacious self contained two bedroom apartment above, attached cottage with residential potential and a generous outside area, once again lending itself to development, all subject to necessary consents. Planning permission was previously granted in 2012 (since lapsed) to convert the attached building to residential, whilst also re-erecting buildings to the rear of main house to create an annexe. Whilst the purchaser may be interested in running the pub/leasing off the pub, further potential would arise should the pub be also converted to residential, any potential buyers should first investigate whether this would be viable and whether planning permission could be granted. The pub itself was fully refurbished in recent years and although it has stood empty for some time, the main workings are still in place. There are refurbished toilets, stylish bar, kitchen and three seating areas, boasting exposed beams and some period features. The main apartment was also refurbished, now needing some attention in areas, it offers a spacious and flexible living spacious, with the advantage of also having its own separate access to the pub. There is gated access from the main road, plus further access from the rear and allocated parking. The grounds also offer potential for further off street parking/gardens. Previous plans/drawings are available for prospective purchasers to peruse, although a visit to the site is essential to see the potential on offer.
