A Derelict House & Former Breakers Yard, Offering Further Potential (STP), Situated In An Accessible Rural Location - 1.6 Acres

SITUATION

Mainline Trains: Tisbury to London/Waterloo 110 minutes.

Long Landsley is situated approximately 1.5 miles east of the desirable

Saxon market town of Shaftesbury and enjoys an attractive rural setting,

set back off the A30. The property benefits from good communication

links with the A303 to the north providing access to the M3 and M5

motorway network. The Cathedral City of Salisbury lies within easy

reach to the east with Blandford Forum, Poole and Weymouth to the

south (via A350).

LOCAL, SPORTING & RECREATIONAL

The market town of Shaftesbury

provides a good range of services including two supermarkets, a post

office, public houses, restaurants, church and a school with more

comprehensive shopping, sporting, cultural and education facilities

found in Salisbury or Bath. Good walking and cycling opportunities

surround the property into the surrounding Cranborne Chase

countryside. Horseracing is at Salisbury, Wincanton and Bath. Local

hunts include The South & West Wilts, Blackmore & Sparkford Vale

and The Portman. Fishing can be enjoyed on the River Nadder nearby

on licence via private clubs and organisations.

LONG LANDSLEY

Set back off the A30, Long Landsley has been in the same family

ownership for over 80 years, and is now offered to the market, presenting

a rare opportunity with further potential (subject to planning) in an

accessible rural location.

The land which extends to some 3.6 acres is divided into two parts

with the first comprising a mobile home which we understand has a

permanent licence. The second area provides a derelict house which

was abandoned in 2010 before being subject to a fire in 2016. The

land surrounding the house was used as a breakers yard and operated

commercially with consent from Wiltshire council under application

(S/1993/0006) in February 1993.

Both the house and the mobile home have their own entrances, situated

at either end of the site.
