STAFFORDSHIRE CARE HOME PLACED ON THE MARKET FOR RESIDENTIAL REDEVELOPMENT
Residential land agents at Harris Lamb have been instructed to sell a former care home in Staffordshire for redevelopment.
Butterhill House, a three-storey Georgian property with ancillary outbuildings, has most recently been used as a care home, having previously been converted in the 1950s into flats.
The property currently falls into C2 class planning use for residential care, but the business anticipates high demand from potential buyers keen to take steps to renovate and convert it into luxury apartments.
James Willcock, of Harris Lamb’s Residential team, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for a developer to transform this Manor House to its former glory. Butterhill House is full of character, and occupies a plot of more than an acre in the hamlet of Butterhill, known for its historically important semi-derelict red-brick Grade II listed windmill, in an idyllic setting within the Staffordshire countryside.
“A mid-19th-century brick building, the property has gabled dormers, ornamental bargeboards, and stone bay windows. The house has a large south-facing Orangery and ancillary outbuildings, and is located close to the village of Coppenhall, a mile from the market town of Stafford.
“While it currently has C2 class planning permission in place, it has previously been split into flats and used as a residential property in its entirety, so we foresee the successful buyer acquiring the appropriate planning approvals to undertake an extensive to restore this property to its former glory, creating highly desirable new homes in the countryside,” he said.
