A rare opportunity to convert a former agricultural building into a residential dwelling with 54 acres in an AONB
Berry Wood Barn and adjoining land occupies an elevated position on the edge of Donhead St Mary with panoramic views across open countryside. A rare opportunity has arisen to convert a 2,770 sq. ft. barn into a detached residential dwelling that overlooks its own land. Originally an agricultural building, Berry Wood Barn was converted in 2004 to provide secure storage and the work included installing double glazed windows, central heating, kitchen and bathrooms and fully insulating the structure to a domestic standard. Planning consent has now been granted to convert the barn to provide a substantial family home in a highly sought after area.
Lot 1 Berry Wood Barn with Paddock Land About 2 acres (0.8 hectares)
Berry Wood Barn is a 2,770 sq. ft. barn which has been granted full planning consent to be converted into a residential dwelling. The planning reference number is 19/01108/FUL on the Wiltshire Council website where further details and drawings can be found. The accommodation is arranged on one level around a large, open-plan kitchen/dining/living room. The contemporary style will incorporate triple aspect French Windows opening in all directions making the most of the natural light as well as the far reaching countryside views. The layout has been designed to provide 4 large bedrooms but there is scope for the purchaser to change the internal arrangements to suit their own requirements.
The barn has already been installed with a kitchen, bathroom and services which include a private oil supply, private drainage and mains electricity. A long gravel drive sweeps around the existing building providing ample parking and turning space with the option to add garaging (subject to consent) if required. There is a large open Agricultural Barn but this has to be demolished in order to comply with the planning. There is a further outbuilding that can be retained to provide garden storage. Adjoining the barn is approximately two acres of permeant pasture land which has potential to be landscaped into a garden area. Further land is available with Lot 1 under separate negotiation.
Lot 2 A Parcel of Attractive Pastureland About 31.38 acres (12.7 ha)
Lot 2 is made up of about 31 acres which has been subdivided into separate paddocks by mature hedgerows and post and wire fencing. The land is attractive permanent pasture with undulating topography and far reaching views over the Cranborne Chase towards Old Wardour Castle. There is road access off Berrywood Lane which lies on the western boundary of Lot 2 and each f eld benefits from gated entrances interlinking each paddock and allowing easy movement of livestock and vehicles. The river Nadder runs adjacent to the northern border providing an additional water source and peaceful atmosphere.
Lot 3 Productive Grassland About 21.05 acres (8.5ha)
Lot 3 is situated between Berry Wood Lane and Britmore Lane and is made up of approximately 21 acres of undulating pasture land. There is gated, highway access into the land from Berry Wood Lane via the south eastern corner and also off Britmore Lane on the western boundary. Like lot 2, the land has been subdivided by hedgerows and is bordered with post and wire fencing around the perimeter. All the land is serviced with mains water and troughs have been installed in every field.
