For Sale Residential $2,800,000.0 USD or cyptocurrency equivalent - House
A fantastic opportunity to purchase a Grade II listed iconic property near Kenilworth Castle which sits in a plot of around 2/3 of an acre.
The Wantage is a renowned property nestled in what is probably one of the best locations in the old part of the historic town of Kenilworth. The Wantage boasts some wonderful original features and intricate architectural characteristics, notably the stone corbel etched with The ‘Wantage’ monogram and the stone window mullions.
Sadly most of The Wantage has been subject to vacant possession for many years, as such the house is in need of renovation and refurbishment to restore it to its former glory. Planning permission has been obtained to convert the house into four luxury apartments which make The Wantage an even better proposition.
The plans show the existing layout. Planning permission has been approved to convert the first floor of the house into two separate luxury apartments with each apartment extended directly above into the second floor which originally were the servants’ quarters.
The ground floor also has planning permission for one extra large luxury apartment. It is possible (subject to permission) to split into two separate apartments.
The basement which has its own private access and courtyard has permission for conversion into a separate luxury apartment.
Location, location, location just yards from Kenilworth Castle. We are of the opinion that it is arguably one of the finest residences in Kenilworth/surrounding area.
