Located within the highly desirable village of Long Bennington is this unique and potentially very charming Grade II property that presents a huge opportunity to the right buyer. The extensive and highly flexible accommodation is currently set over two floors, with further scope (and the relevant permissions) to convert the current cellar space and large attic spaces. With many features still in place, and numerous reception rooms and bedrooms, this potentially could be the home that you can only dream of, in one of the area's most prestigious villages. This home requires significant improvements, and therefore buyers who are not willing to take on a full scale project should be advised. Sold with no onward chain.
