An attractive period village house with land and outbuildings offering development opportunity

About this property

  • An excellent example of a period village house, Home Garth is situated in a commanding position behind the village green. The property sits in front of a plot of around three quarters of an acre with extensive outbuildings offering an amazing opportunity for further residential development under class Q permitted development.

    The house has been well maintained and would now benefit from a degree of modernisation. Arranged over two floors, all rooms are of excellent proportions with living accommodation extending to just over1,600 square feet.

    The ground floor accommodation comprises of three reception rooms including a sitting room with an open fireplace and views across the village. The dining and family room also has an open fireplace and are linked by glass double doors making for an incredibly bright and airy space. The separate kitchen sits to the back of the property, with fitted units and a feature brick chimney breast allowing space for a range oven. The back porch provides a perfect place for muddy boots and coats and provides access to the downstairs WC.

    The first floor has three double bedrooms with built in storage cupboards, a single bedroom/study and a sizeable house bathroom with a separate bath and shower.

    To the rear of the property sits a range of pretty brick stables and outbuildings to the left and a double car port to the right. There is a large agricultural building extending to over 2,100 square feet giving way to a lawned area and fenced grass paddock.

    Pre application enquiries have been made to Hambleton Planning Department and their response to the potential conversion of these buildings into new dwellings was:
    The Council's preference would be for a reduction in scale from a 4-bed/3-bed arrangement to a 3-bed/2-bed arrangement to ensure that policy objectives can be easily met. Despite these concerns, it is considered that the proposal has the capacity to receive officer support. Whilst a number of policy considerations remain open to discussion due to the outline nature of the information provided, the principle of development within the chosen site is considered to be largely compliant with local and national policy, as discussed above. As such, a sensitively handled and well justified scheme may be considered for approval.
