Property Details

A rare opportunity to purchase a substantial and attractive Grade II listed former residential care home, situated in the heart of Berkeley in Gloucestershire. This impressive detached building measures approximately 4,773 sq ft and comprises a detached three storey house to the front with single storey rear addition, former stable and hayloft and a more recent single storey extension to the rear of the site. The property has been used as a care home up until August this year and now offers potential for a variety of different uses including residential development, subject to obtaining the necessary planning and listed building consents. The property benefits from gardens and a private car park to the rear. 6 WEEK COMPLETION AVAILABLE.

By appointment




An attractive Grade II listed period building that has previously been operating as a residential care home. The spacious accommodation measures approximately 4,773 sq ft (including the cellar) and is arranged to provide 13 bedrooms with additional communal rooms, kitchen and staff accommodation/offices. Externally, the property benefits from a vehicular access lane to the side, wrap around gardens and a private car park accessed through an archway under the former hayloft. The property offers potential for a variety of different uses including residential conversion/development and a scheme of mews cottages and self-contained flats may be suitable, subject to consents.


We understand that the property currently benefits from a C2 (Residential Institutions) use class. The current owners have carried out a Pre-application enquiry with Stroud District Council in relation to a potential redevelopment of the property to provide 4 new, one and a half storey mews cottages at the rear of the site and 5 or 6 flats in the main building at the front. The Council's response to the Pre-application enquiry was very positive and a copy of the response along with the proposed plans will be available in the auction legal pack.


On the basis that planning and listed building consent can be obtained for a scheme similar to the one outlined in the Pre-application enquiry (4 x mews houses and 6 x flats), we would anticipate a GDV in the region of £1,500,000 - £1,600,000.


The property is situated on Canonbury Street in the heart of the market town of Berkeley in Gloucestershire. A range of local amenities are easily accessible and the property sits less than 500m from the historic Berkeley Castle. Berkeley lies midway between Bristol and Gloucester and excellent transport links are provided via the M5 motorway.
