The Grange was originally used as council offices and has recently been operated by a local charity as a 18 bed care home. The main structure was built in the 1960’s and comprises of a two storey stone and tiled property which measures 6,997sqft/650m2. To the rear of the property are a range of outbuildings which have a total area of 1,776sqft/165m2. The main building has two accesses on to the A378 and any redevelopment of the site will continue to use these by having traffic entering the property using the western access and exiting via the access to the east. The property has a number of mature trees along the boundaries of the property. The frontage to the A378 measures over 100m, therefore the property is easily visible from the road. To the south and east portion of the site is where the main building and outbuildings are located which is primarily surrounded by a tarmac surface used as roads, pathways and substantial car park area. To the north and east the site is a lawned area with a further grassed area of 1.44 acres (outlined blue on the OS plan) to the north available by separate negotiation. Opposite the site is the entrance to Immacolata House, a care home specialising in dementia care.
The site is located on the western edge of Langport and the High Street is 700m from the entrance. To travel to town you can either catch a bus at the stop which is by the entrance to the site or walk along the footpath which crosses the river into town.
The Grange has mains electricity, mains water and sewer, all of which can be found on or adjacent to the site. All prospective purchasers are encouraged to make their own enquiries with the statutory undertakers.
The property is available on a freehold basis with vacant possession on completion.
VAT will not be charged on the sale of the land.
Planning was granted for a 30 bed extension in the 1980’s, although it was renewed in the 1990’s the permission was never implemented. The current primary use for the property is as an assisted living care home. A pre application was submitted to South Somerset with an indicative plan showing the comprehensive redevelopment of the site into a close care/extra care/retirement village. The illustrative plans show a 50 bed care home with 22 assisted dwellings/cottages. The Pre App response (ref: 17/04416/PREAPP) states that ‘On this basis, should the need be demonstrated, which I expect you can do, and the fact that I am content that this can be seen as a broadly sustainable location, in respect to accessibility and distance to key services, the proposed type of development is considered to be acceptable in principle’. The response goes on to say that any development would need to be sensitively designed and appropriately scaled. A full planning pack is available on request from Helmores.
The property is offered for sale by private treaty. The vendors are looking to dispose of the site conditional on planning permission being granted although unconditional offers will be considered.
