Baskerville House is an impressive, four storey, former Victorian vicarage dating back to the late 1800s. It has a generous floor area extending to an approximate 5,488 square feet (510sq m), which has been converted into a house of multiple occupation, comprising five small studio flats and eight bed sitting rooms, each of which has its own fully fitted kitchen and all of which have generous and more than adequate shared communal bathroom facilities. The majority are fully occupied and the building is capable of generating a significant income (approximately £69,000 per annum when fully occupied). The property still retains potential to be converted/returned to a single residential dwelling. Standing on the junction of Cowleigh Road and Cowleigh Bank, with dual access onto the main highway, the house is set in communal lawned grounds with extensive off road private parking.
