Garaging at the Rear and Parking

The drive from the road leads to the rear of the property where there is a single garage with off road parking for two cars, these are currently being sold with THE LODGE. In addition there is a row of large garages currently let out on a short term basis and producing a reliable income of 400pcm. These may at some stage also offer building potential, subject to planning and an overage clause. It may also be worth noting that the property itself has recently earned an income of 1500pcm which would in total provide investors with an income of 1900.00 per calendar month.
