Situation and Description
Extensive Grade II listed former coaching inn and hotel situated in a prominent position. Consent for conversion to 5 residential units and pub/restaurant.

Calne is positioned to the south of Chippenham, west of Marlborough and north of Devizes and represents an old market town of Wiltshire.

During the late 1990s and early 2000s Calne was considered one of the fastest expanding towns in the south-west of England, with a population at circa 16,000 in 2012 (Wikipedia). The Lansdown Park housing development has also substantially increased the population.

The area's accessibility enables Calne to be an excellent place to stay whilst visiting perhaps Marlborough, Salisbury Plain, Bath and the surrounding villages.

The White Hart Hotel is located on the A4 on the edge of the town centre but within easy walking distance of all town centre facilities.

Planning consent was granted under App No 19/09033/FUL for the conversion to mixed use residential and pub/restaurant in March 2020. The plans provide for 4 bed house, 2x3 bed house, 2 bed house, 2 bed flat and pub with accommodation over. The site has an approx GDV of about £1,450,000.

Parking and garaging plus attractive central courtyard.

The 3 small barn conversions are being retained by the seller and they will each have an allocated parking space in the area.. Copies of the plans are available from the auctioneers.
