Agent's Note: 1) The property is available in three lots: Lot 1 - The house and gardens - Guide £1,250,000 Lot 2 - The building land - Excess £850,000 Lot 3 - The whole - Excess £2,000,000 2) The current septic tank drainage system for Mandalay is situated on the grounds of the building plots. If the house and building plots are to be sold separately, the new owners of Mandalay will be required to move the septic tank drainage system to within their own grounds. This will need to be carried out within a specified period of time, to be agreed by solicitors. The current owners have had a quote from a local contractor that would indicate the cost of this to be in the region of £20,000-£25,000. 3) The vendors will only sell the building land to a separate buyer if the purchaser of the main house does not wish to purchase as a whole. The exchange of contracts on both will need to happen simultaneously, even in the event of them being sold to separate purchasers. Property Information Services - Mains electricity and water.
