About this property

  • Planning use
    The property currently has C2 use restricting the occupation to women over the age of 60 and men over the age of 65. However, as the property use ceased use many years ago, it lends itself to a change of use to C3 residential, being located predominantly within an urban residential environment. Any changes are subject to planning permissions from Chelmsford City Council.

    Ashley House has been a care home for many years, now closed. With the size of the property extending to over 5,800 sq ft, it provides enormous potential. For example: a substantial house with multiple reception rooms, bedrooms, bathroom and a separate annexe or HMO (a property for multiple occupation) which is indeed a rare opportunity so close to the city centre.

    There is parking at the front for six to seven cars and the rear gardens, which are screened by mature confiders and hedging, extend to approximately 72 ft in length.

Looking for its next custodian after a period as a care home. Can't wait to see how this sale progresses.
