The adjoining property has planning consent for a new 2/3 storey building which will provide 10 new homes. Construction of the development is currently underway.

The sale is to be by way of informal tender and private treaty. There is a strong preference for unconditional offers. Bidders are encouraged to include provision for onward sales clawback and planning overage in their offers.

The building façade is of brick and stone, under a part flat and part pitched roof structure. It is arranged over ground and first floors. The property is locally listed and was previously utilised as a two appliance bay fire station on the ground floor, together with offices, dormitories, welfare facilities, washrooms, kitchen and mess area on the upper floor. There is a roof terrace at first floor level, overlooking the rear yard and the Lower Green. The appliance bays have clear height of approximately 3.3 metres.
