A rare development/investment opportunity comprising a substantial period residence (current use Care Home C2), three adjoining apartments with age restrictions, gardens and parking – in all over 8500 sq. ft located in one of Ripon’s most sought after neighbourhoods.
UNCONDITIONAL OFFERS CONSIDERED FOR THE FREEHOLD
Skell Lodge is one of Ripon’s finest period properties which until recently has been operated as a Care Home with the additional benefit of three self-contained apartments.
There is now the clear potential (subject to planning) for the creation of high quality apartments in one of the city’s most popular and sough after tree-lined street scenes.
The main building which has been maintained in good order throughout provides over 6800 sq. ft of accommodation excluding basement and roof void with current Planning Class Use C2.
At the rear of Skell Lodge is a converted former coach house within which three one bedroom apartments are offered as part of the freehold (age restriction 55 and over Planning Class Use C3) along with the freehold interest in one further apartment which is not part of this sales package i.e. within separate ownership.
A private driveway leads to a detached garage with ornamental gardens whilst a shared drive leads to a neighbouring property and a rear courtyard accommodating the coach house covered parking and external storage. Finally, there is a front carriage driveway and ornamental borders where additional parking could be created.
South Crescent is one of Ripon’s most sought after addresses, with a variety of substantial detached properties with a delightful wooded area to the front of the property, whilst being very convenient for the city’s varied amenities.
Ripon offers a wide variety of shops, services and leisure and recreational facilities, as well as schooling for primary and secondary ages including Ripon Grammar school.
The property is most convenient for the city which features a Racecourse and provides easy access to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and Moors countryside. The A1 is convenient for the commuter and a number of A roads also provide access to the nearby towns of Harrogate, Thirsk and further afield.
Leave Ripon’s market square on Duck Hill and turn right onto Water Skellgate then at the traffic lights turn left onto Low Skellgate. Continue over Glovers Bridge and then take the second left into South Crescent. The property can then be found on the left hand side.
