The sale of The Gables offers the discerning purchaser a particularly rare opportunity to acquire a substantial property of local importance on a prime, 1.25 acre plot in an exclusive private estate. Designed by Sir Aston Webb, and constructed as two separate residential dwellings in the late 1890s, the buildings were joined and converted to a care home in 1952. The property operated until December 2019, but is now vacant and surplus to requirements.
The Gables occupies one of the largest unbroken plots on the prestigious Cator Estate, and boasts a frontage of more than 60m. Now loosely arranged as apartments, the accommodation is predominantly arranged over two storeys and extends to in excess of 12,000 sqft. Whilst much of the original external character remains, several extensions have been added, and the interior requires modernisation. The property will undoubtedly appeal to a wide variety of purchasers and appears suitable for continued C2 use, reversion to private residence(s) or conversion into residential apartments. Please note that covenants prevent the use of the property as a school, offices or similar, and as such only interest for C2 or C3 use will be entertained.
