Builder / developer opportunity

This spacious three bedroom bungalow enjoys idyllic location in the peaceful village of Garyvard, Isle of Lewis and offers an exciting development opportunity to create a stunning holiday home or rental with beautiful views over the surrounding croft land. The property requires refurbishment throughout which, allied with a competitive Guide Price and strong comparable end development values, provides potential to achieve significant levels of added value and profit margin. The existing accommodation format comprises lounge, kitchen, three bedrooms and bathroom but there would also be potential to add a further two bedrooms and bathroom in the loft space subject to required permissions. The property plot extends to approximately ½ acre and there is also a field adjacent to the property (understood to be of similar size) on which the existing owner kept her horses which could perhaps provide further development potential. There is no heating system in the property but there is an electric supply. Air source heating or oil could be other heating options to explore but there is already an open fireplace in the lounge and a chimney in the kitchen for Raeburn or similar range. The added value and stunning surroundings make this an ideal project for a developer to undertake the works required and either retain for rental or achieve margin through resale.

There is little point in a condition survey being undertaken on a home that is unfit for occupation in any case and is being advertised as such.
