About this property

  • Enjoying an elevated position with views over the countryside, the site of the current 3 bedroom bungalow and farm buildings benefits from planning permission for demolition and replacement with a 5 bedroom farmhouse and outbuildings.

    Proposed Development

    The planning permission under planning reference 19/00157/F provides consent for the construction of a substantial family home, extending to just over 4,000 square feet (with attic storage), built to a traditional vernacular style of local Hornton ironstone under a slate roof, together with a range of outbuildings in a courtyard setting, including stables and storage. The consent allows for the house of generous proportions with spacious rooms enjoying southerly views, and set away from the road in a private position. Development has commenced for planning purposes.

    Outside, there will be gardens and grounds together with a large turning circle and access to a separate stable yard.

    Current Site

    At present the site comprises a 3 bedroom bungalow built in the 1960s of brick and rendered brick construction, under a tiled roof. The bungalow is currently let on a periodic Assured Shorthold Tenancy and was built subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition. However, a Certificate of Lawful Use of Existing Development was given under planning reference 12/00270/CLUE in 2012 “to allow non-compliance with condition 2 of permission B.947/64 relating to agricultural occupancy”.

    On the site of the proposed new dwelling, are also three farm buildings comprising:
    1. General Store: A timber framed barn with a fibre cement roof and dirt floor. Measures about 27.5m x 19.5m.
    2. Cattle Yard: A steel portal frame building with a fibre cement roof enclosed with concrete block walls and part Yorkshire timber boarding. Part fibre cement cladding. Measures about 27.5m x 18.5m.
    3. General Store: A concrete portal frame building with a corrugated iron fibre cement roof, cladding and concrete floor. Measures about 13.7m x 18m.


    The Property is offered for sale with about 20 acres (8.09 hectares).

    Please note that the Property forms part of a larger farm being Manor Farm, Hornton. Manor Farm is a productive arable farm split into three contiguous parcels and a separate arable holding at Alkerton with two modern farm buildings, extending to 482.89 acres (195.41 hectares).
