In the picturesque village of Greetland, near Halifax, a remarkable opportunity is about to hit the property market. A four-storey former care home is set to go under the digital gavel at the upcoming Pugh property auction on the 18th of October.
This historic stone-built structure, spanning an impressive 19,000 square feet, is being offered with a guide price of £340,000. But that’s not all; this property comes complete with full planning consent for a transformation into 13 modern apartments. The proposed redevelopment includes eight two-bedroom flats, two of which are duplexes, and five one-bedroom flats, all complemented by convenient parking spaces at the rear of the building. Nestled on Green Lane, the property is situated on a sprawling 1.25-acre plot of land, promising ample space for prospective residents.
Will Thompson, the Associate Director at the esteemed auctioneer Pugh, expressed enthusiasm for this exciting project, saying, “This handsome building is an exciting redevelopment opportunity in a really nice area of West Yorkshire, and we’ve seen a lot of interest from potential buyers. Once redeveloped, the property will provide much-needed new homes for the local area and it is really well located with schools, shops, and other facilities nearby and Halifax less than four miles away.”
Thompson went on to reveal an intriguing historical tidbit about the property, stating, “We think the property dates back to 1907 when it was originally built as two semi-detached houses. It has most recently been used as office space by Calderdale Council on the lower ground floor, with the upper ground and first floor used as a residential care home. There’s also potential for further development, as this is a large site, although that would be subject to the necessary planning consent being obtained by any potential buyer.”
The Pugh auction, scheduled for the 18th of October, is an event that sees new properties added to the lineup daily. If you’re intrigued by the prospect of owning a piece of history ripe for transformation, this former care home in Greetland could be your ticket to a unique residential venture.
