About this property

  • An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a delightful main door lower ground floor property which has been used as an office until recently. Planning permission has been granted to convert the property into a superb three/four bedroom main door flat with a private garden, or two separate two bedroom main door flats.

    The property is accessed via the main door entrance at 46 India Street as well as through an additional door, formerly 2A Gloucester Place.

    The property is well proportioned throughout offering bright, spacious and comfortable accommodation with aspects to the north, south and east allowing for plenty of natural light.

    The proposed floor plans for a single flat include the downtaking of various walls to create a spectacular open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room with partition doors to a further sitting room or generous third double bedroom. The principal bedroom is situated at the 46 India Street end of the property as will benefit from a dressing room and en suite shower room, while a family bathroom serves the second double bedroom. A further fourth bedroom has been designed to also be a home office. The property benefits from an easily maintained private garden to the rear.

    Lot 1 comprises 46 India Street which has planning permission to be developed into a charming two bedroom main door flat. The entrance opens to the spacious open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room which is well positioned on the corner with aspects to the east and south making it particularly bright. The principal bedroom is set behind this room with a bathroom adjacent, while the second bedroom is to the other side of the sitting room and has been designed to also be used as a home office. There is a generous basement area to the front of the property with two private under pavement cellars.

    Lot 2 comprises the property formerly known as 2A Gloucester Place which has planning permission to be developed into a generously proportioned two bedroom main door flat. The entrance is accessed via stone steps from Gloucester Place to a private basement area where there are two under pavement cellars. The proposed plans show the door opening to a hallway leading to the inner hall from where both bedrooms are accessed and situated to the front of the property. The principal bedroom has a dressing area as well as an en suite shower room room, while the second double bedroom is served by the main bathroom. To the rear of the property is an exceptional open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room with a pantry off. This is a spacious room with a door opening to the private rear garden.

An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a development opportunity with planning permission in a highly sought after location. I love the design and layout of the proposed plans, either as a single flat or as two separate units.
