An exciting and very rare development opportunity comprising of a substantial stone built school and house with out buildings gardens and paddock extending to circa 1 acre.
Offerton Coxgreen School and the adjoining headmasters house were built in 1878 to accommodate 150 children from the villages of Coxgreen and Offerton, Subsequently de-commissioned in 1968 and from then on have been used as a private dwelling and artist workshop.
The property is set within open countryside at the foot of Penshaw Monument Hill and being within 500m of the banks of the River Wear and the Riverside Golf Club. The tranquil setting offers stunning views over open countryside and there are pleasant riverside and country walks together with mountain bike trails directly on the doorstep.
In our opinion it provides one of the most exciting development opportunities to come to the City's property market in recent times.
An exciting development opportunity with a favourable reply from the City planning department to a pre-application enquiry for the conversion of the School into a seperate dwelling and the extension of the current School House.
The property has the benefit of a Biomass plant which currently produces an income of £300pcm paid quarterly.
In its existing format The Old School House comprises of a lovely home with immense character with further development for extension to create a substantial detached dwelling.
The stone built school and out buildings are ripe for development subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. We foresee either a single dwelling or sub-division in to two properties. There are extensive gardens which may offer additional possibilities once again subject to obtaining necessary planning consents.
