9 West Street, WELLS, Somerset
LOOKING FOR A PROJECT??? THIS SALE INCLUDES A HOUSE AND A BUILDING PLOT IN THE HEART OF WELLS ....... Well suited to investors looking for a project, buyers looking to double the size of a family home or those looking to build a house next door for a relative. The existing property, without the value of the building plot alongside, was recently valued at 475k. As a terraced home afterwards it is likely to be valued at 425k and still has potential to build into the loft space. The new three bedroom end of terrace home will be worth the same again which makes this a viable project with a very good return. The existing three bedroom home was completely refurbished in 2014 and has a good sized garden and parking for two cars at the rear. With the assistance of well regarded local architects Della Valle, the sellers recently gained planning permission to erect a new three bedroom home on the end of the terrace which also added a further two parking spaces. Offered with the benefit of no onward chain.
