About this property

  • Viewings strictly by appointment only:

    West View Farmstead is a semi-rural farmyard and a collection of attached and detached farm buildings, situated within easy reach of a main road between the villages of Collingham and Besthorpe. The former farmstead has been divided into five separate parcels for development into new dwellings with a focus on sustainable heating and waste management.

    Adjoining the farmstead are older character properties and attractive, farmed arable land.

    Planning consent
    Planning permission has been sought/granted to create five separate self-contained dwellings, including:

    Plot 1, The Granary Barn: Conversion of the existing granary barn to create a two-storey dwelling with a single-storey east wing, with a north-facing rear garden.

    Plot 2, The Grain Store: Conversion of the existing grain store, a brick farm building, to create a two-storey detached dwelling with a detached garage and an east-facing garden.

    Plot 3, The Dairy Barn (East): A conversion of the existing dairy barn, making a single-storey semi-detached dwelling facing east with a large garden facing south and east.

    Plot 4, The Dairy Barn (West): The second half of the existing dairy barn, converted to create a semi-detached single-storey dwelling facing west with a south- and east-facing garden.

    Plot 5, The Farm Store: Conversion of an existing two-storey brick building into a single detached dwelling with a south-facing garden.

    The properties are all designed to drain into a new below-ground sewage treatment plant with land-drains below the field facilitated by sandy, free-draining subsoils. Plots 2, 3 and four will also have ground source heat pipes below the gardens. The access will be changed to create a new entrance with better visibility.

There is huge potential here to create five houses/barn conversions and all within a mile of Collingham which has to be one of the most popular villages we operate in
