    About this property

    • An opportunity to acquire a traditional Georgian farmhouse and farmyard in an attractive edge-of-village hilltop setting with unrivalled views of East Leicestershire, within 25 acres of land, with planning consent granted for the creation of six additional residential barn conversions within the farmyard.

      Halstead House is an attractive and symmetrical three-storey ironstone-under-Welsh slate grade II listed dwelling, with high ceilings to the principal rooms, large sash windows framing stunning southerly views to the front over the gardens and land, and a real sense of space. It requires modernisation. It has three reception rooms and up to seven bedrooms, as currently configured, extending to approximately 4400 square feet, on the floor plan.

      Adjoining the house to the east, a linked lower, largely single storey wing of former stables and outbuildings, offering further potential as a home office, studio or ancillary annex, subject to appropriate planning consents being sought.

      Harborough District Council have granted planning consent within the farmyard to the rear of the farmhouse, dated 21st September 2021 (ref: 19/02009/FUL) for the demolition of five agricultural buildings and the conversion and extension of five former agricultural buildings and a wedding venue to create six new dwellings, including landscaping, parking and access.

      The six new dwellings vary between two to five bedrooms, some single storey and others two storey, largely working within the existing footprints of the buildings, although there is a single storey extension proposed to plot 1. They are arranged around a listed former feed mill within the farmyard, which adjoins plot 4.

      The plans are available on the Council planning portal, or from the agent, but the plots and their gross internal areas from the architect, which do not allow for the dry lining and insulation, are summarised as:

      Plot 1 – A two bedroom, two storey house 1227 sq.ft
      Plot 2 – A five bedroom, two storey house 3799 sq.ft
      Plot 3 – A three bedroom, two storey house 2680 sq ft
      Plot 4 – A three bedroom, two storey house 1840 sq ft
      Plot 5 – A three bedroom, single storey house 1657 sq ft
      Plot 6 – A three bedroom, single storey house 1367 sq ft

      Vehicular access would be from the existing lane, with a driveway and parking for the farmhouse to the west. Vehicular access for plots 2-6 would stretch the length of the north-western elevation. Plot 1 would be accessed via the farmstead's existing archway adjacent to the farmhouse.

      There is a formal garden set out to the south of the farm house, with two fish ponds and fabulous views over the adjoining land to rolling countryside. The land stretches to the south and wraps around the farmyard to the north side, as shown on the promap plan. It extends to 25 acres, or thereabouts, in total.

    This is a fabulous and versatile property. A farmhouse and farmyard at the end of a lane, with lovely walks from along footpaths nearby, in 25 acres. A first class development opportunity with planning for six new dwellings within the farmyard. For me, this would be my dream home, with the land, and the ability to develop and run the new homes as a holiday home business enterprise.
