THE PLOT This is an important Listed detached house originating from the early 19th Century with a substantial 2 storey additional wing dating to the early 1960s. The main property enjoys an elevated position with views to the village and retains many of its original features.
The overall net internal area of The Old Quarries and the wing is just over 16,000 Sq. Ft. The property is within a 7 acre parkland setting located on the edge of the popular Cotswold Village of Avening, which is very conveniently placed for other larger nearby centres including Cirencester and Tetbury as well as connections for both the M5 and M4 motorways.
In addition to the main house, there are other significant properties currently in residential care use known as The Lodge, The Bungalow, Chandler House and Meadow View. Details of all of these buildings are included within the information pack. There are other ancillary outbuildings within the grounds.
The entire property has until recently been operated as a Care Home and has C2 planning consent and clearly could continue in this use. In our view the property represents a very unusual opportunity to acquire an interesting potential residential development site subject to planning consents. There are also a variety of potential commercial uses for which the property is well suited, including hotel, leisure club, conference centre or offices, again, all subject to planning consent.

LOCATION Avening is a small attractive Cotswold Village with basic amenities including excellent Primary School, Parish Church and two Public Houses. It is located midway between Nailsworth and Tetbury and enjoys easy access to other nearby larger centres including Cirencester and Stroud.
The M5 Motorway can be joined at junction 13 west of Stonehouse and the M4 motorway can be joined at junction 17 South of Malmesbury. Mainline trains are available at Kemble, about 4 miles away.
VIEWINGS You should be aware that the property is fully alarmed and has on site security; therefore informal visits are not possible.
We are arranging a number of open view times as follows:
1. Tuesday 21st November 11:30am - 1:00pm
2. Tuesday 28th November 2:00pm - 3:30pm
3. Monday 4th December 2:00pm - 3:30pm
TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING The property falls within the jurisdiction of the Cotswold District Council, with whom no preliminary discussions have taken place. The property is however listed Grade II and therefore we would anticipate that external alterations to the main house itself will be resisted.
It currently falls within use class C2 as a Care Home and this use could of course continue. Alternatively, it would seem suitable for a variety of interesting and unusual residential development projects subject to planning consent. It could also suit a wide range of commercial uses including Hotel, Spa, Leisure Centre, Conference Centre or offices, again all of which would require planning permission.
METHOD OF SALE The property is offered for sale by informal tender. Offers are to be made in writing by 12 noon on Thursday 14th December 2017 at the offices of Perry Bishop & Chambers, 2 Silver Street, Cirencester, GL7 2BL.
