SOLD PRIOR

DESCRIPTION -

A rare opportunity to purchase an attractive and substantial pair of semi-detached houses, previously arranged as a 21-bedroom hostel/House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) occupying a generous plot of approximately 0.3 acres. The property benefits from extensive gardens to the rear, laid mostly to hardstanding providing off-street parking for several vehicles.

Full planning consent has been granted for the conversion of the existing building into two 9-bedroom HMOs and the conversion of the existing garage to the rear into a detached 1-bedroom dwelling (works to the garage have been partially completed).

The main property also offers potential for conversion into 8 flats or 2 substantial family houses plus the rear dwelling, subject to consents.

LOCATION -

The property is situated in a sought-after residential location on Overnhill Road in Downend, an attractive street comprising primarily of impressive Victorian houses. Easy access is provided to a wide range of local amenities in Downend and Staple Hill. Excellent transport links are provided to Bristol city centre, which is located approximately 5 miles to the southwest. Vehicular access is provided to the rear of the property via a lane off Wrenbert Road.

ACCOMMODATION -

Please refer to floorplan for approximate room measurements and internal layout.

POTENTIAL RENTAL VALUES -

If the approved planning consent is implemented to provide two 9-bedroom HMOs and a detached dwelling to the rear, we would anticipate a gross annual income in the region of £150,900 (£650 pcm per room for the HMOs and £875 pcm for the rear dwelling).

PLANNING -

Full planning consent was granted on 24 March 2021 for the sub-division and conversion of the existing property into two separate 9-bedroom HMOs and the conversion of the existing garage into a self-contained dwelling under Application No. P20/23890/F.

Full planning consent was also granted on appeal in July 2016 for the conversion of the main building into 8 self-contained flats and the conversion of the existing garage into an additional dwelling under Application No. PK15/2216/F although this consent has now lapsed.
