Unique and exciting project in premier location


Westwood is one of the areas most well known houses due to its remarkable and interesting history, its imposing presence on the street and the wonderful plot that it sits on.

The current owners bought the property in 2021 and have partially renovated the house which still leaves a significant amount of works required, but this presents an incredibly exciting opportunity for the next owner to take the house to the next level and create an extraordinary home to their desired taste and standard in a prime and sought after location. The potential and possibilities are extremely unique and interesting.

The current owners have stylishly renovated one of the receptions rooms, three bedrooms and two bathrooms, all to a great standard. They have also installed a sophisticated heating system. This then leaves the rest of the internal accommodation requiring refurbishment.

The rooms which have been renovated have been chosen carefully as the house has full planning permission to completely transform the home and if done so, these rooms would not be disturbed or effected if the prosed plans were built. The full approved plans and computer generated images for this transformation are available upon request.

The current property extends to approximately 6185 square feet plus it has a detached double garage. The plot itself measures 0.485 acres.

Externally, Westwood is set behind original wrought iron railings and gates which then provide access to the extensive drive way with parking for several cars. There is also a detached double garage. To the rear there is a large garden which is a wonderful and sunny space due to its south facing orientation and could be an amazing blank canvas for someone to create a garden that suits them. There is a proposed garden design plan.
