All subject to gaining the necessary consents.
We understand no residential planning has previously been sought.



“The site offers a number of potential development options to explore, given the residential character of the private cul-de-sac and the site’s connectivity to nearby settlements, including Long Ashton, Nailsea and Bristol.

Like the other four properties adjacent to the private road, permission could be sought for the conversion of Gilbert Scott House into a substantial single dwelling house, incorporating appearance upgrades and/or proportionate additions and alterations. Given the size of the existing building, permission could be alternatively sought for the conversion of the property into multiple dwellings, such as two houses or even apartments, although the relationship to the setting of the adjacent listed building (Coroner’s Court) will need careful consideration.

The site is categorised as previously developed “brownfield” land, and as such, there is a possibility of redevelopment as opposed to conversion. The existing building offers a significant building volume, which can be re-provided in the form of either a single large replacement building or carefully arranged as two separate smaller buildings.
