Note to buyers

The driveway at the side can be negotiated in the sale if required, it must then be maintained and the property at the rear (Bankfield) has access/right of way. There is outline planning permission for two semi detached houses in the rear garden, the application number is SL/2014/0944 with SLDC, this will expire in November 2019 unless renewed. Formerly two separate properties, the additional barn part of the property was purchased by the vendor in the late 1990’s, it was then converted and made a part Winander. Buyers are advised to make further investigations should they seek to separate the two properties or to change the use. This would however be ideal for a live in relative.
