Guide price

Substantial detached house set within 0.67 acres of garden land. Development potential for demolition or refurbishment STPP with lapsed planning for a scheme of 8 dwellings. Viewings by appointment only.

Perry Bishop are excited to bring to this market a substantial detached house set within 0.67 acres of garden land in the popular area of Cainscross, Stroud.

This impressive property, known as The White House, has been loved and in the same family ownership for 56 years. It is a unique, architecturally designed house with magnificent views towards Selsley and Rodborough common. Every main room in the house faces south so they are all flooded with light. The house is accessed through a gated driveway along a long tarmac drive. At the back of the plot is a detached double garage and a large barn. Number 4 White House is being sold as a possible development, planning permission was obtained in August 2018 for the demolition of the existing dwelling and outbuildings, and construction of eight new dwellings (including 2 affordable units). This planning has now lapsed, a new application would need to be submitted, the recent NPPF threshold of 10 units would remove the affordable element.
