Forget the house, the 13 acres of land would be worth millions if you can get planning for some houses. looks like a perfect bit of land for infill housing.

That was my thought too. Direct "A road" access with good visibility, no obvious planning restraints, might throw up a few issues with encroachment and suburban sprawl but nothing an appeal to the Secretary of State wouldn't resolve. Someone's going to make a killing off that.

I can see the local cries of "it's a floodplan for the River Medlock!" and the resulting stitch up flooding/attenuation reports already.

I think the river us fairly low down away from the land. 

Ideal for a horrible housing estate.

They'll be really good quality wool carpets. They just look like they belong in a Holt's pub.

Maybe that big house or whatever nearby in the woods ain't going to like any development.

There's a big lump of flats in the woods nearer the main road

Thing is even if they all manage to stump up £10k for a large extra plot that's only £250k. You could flog that land with PP for easily £5M.

Yes that’s true if ,but there’s 13 acres it depends how patient you are and how much money you have .extending the gardens still leaves room for 25 built behind the extended gardens IMO actually you could probably still get 2 rows of houses in after they had extended the gardens then sell the field opposite once planning is sorted

"Edge of village location'' ah yes the quaint little picture postcard village of Ashton-under-Lyne!

Spent most of my childhood around Bardsley Vale and Daisy Nook, i'm surprised it's not already been infilled with urban sprawl between Ashton and Oldham.

Yeah they've not quite finished it. If a developer gets this bit though...

I actually watched a bit of this last night. Wasn't to my taste, but the comments and scorn from this journalist should be enough for anyone considering buying a Listed Building to re-think. You will have every man and his horse commenting and criticising.

I usually like what Geoprge Clarke does but this was awful.  I'm surprised it got planning permission.  I wanted them to re-instate the front door not build that extension on the back.  They could have knocked down all the addons at the back and turned it back to its former state when it was first built.

I think they wanted to go for the parapet roof look, which to be fair is Georgian. It is hard to get right. Something with a few more windows would have looked better, or made of proper stucco. The render and the windows didn't really work for me... something like this would have been better (brick):

The problem is that the original house (IMO) didn't appear to be really of much historical merit. There are much, much nicer houses in the Cotswolds of that period and size.
