We are delighted to offer for sale a unique plot of recreational land extending to approximately 7 acres that backs directly onto Ashton Cross Golf Course.

The site offers fantastic future potential for outdoor recreational facilities, such as equestrian use, fishing ponds and associated holiday/overnight accommodation (subject to necessary planning approval).

The plot forms part of the former estate of New Hall, Garswood (now a golf course) and sits alongside the former Estates Office, Lodge and Head Gardener’s Cottage. These have subsequently been converted into private residences along Millfield Lane.

The plot has a private entrance on Millfield Lane, which was the entrance to the former house of the Estate Manager, which has now been largely demolished. Remnants of this previous property, including cellars, gateway and drive, washhouse and well are still present on the site. There is also a potential second entrance to the site further along Millfield Lane which has been used previously.

The plot encompasses the gardens and grounds of this former property providing possible scope for development in the future. The majority of the plot is composed of woodland covered with a TPO. St. Helens’ Council are willing to consider development of the site due to the poor condition of the trees and the benefits that development and use would bring.

All this makes this a truly remarkable and very rare investment opportunity.
