This historic Victorian villa has “exciting potential” and goes to auction next week. 

Horwell Villas, in Launceston, is made up of three period homes that were originally built in the late 1800s. 

The property comes with full planning permission to create an additional detached house, or to further develop the gardens and drive.

The villas span 556 square metres, with each of the houses retaining classic Victorian features. 

Inside the first house, there is a south-facing sitting room, an open-plan kitchen and dining room and a cellar, as well as four bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor.

There is also a “sizable” private garden to the rear, plus an outhouse. 

The second house is similarly arranged, with the added benefit of two bathrooms and a store room, while the garden offers “breathtaking” countryside views.

The final house is the smallest of the three, with three bedrooms, a conservatory entrance, and a small enclosed courtyard and garden. 

Throughout the homes, there are historic features such as Victorian bay windows and character fireplaces. 

The property is being sold by estate agents Auction House South Yorkshire for a guide price of £300,000, and goes up for sale by online auction on Monday 31st July. 

The agent described the property as: “Three Victorian villas with full vacant possession, with gardens and parking. 

“The site offers development opportunity with planning permission in place for an additional detached house or further improvement, with re-landscaping of the rear gardens to maximise the garden, drive and parking potential.”
