    About this property

    • 5 & 6 Bard Hill are a pair of charming 17th century brick and flint barns, enjoying a wonderfully sheltered position with spectacular coastal views from the top of the terraced gardens.

      The two barns, one of which is already converted, the other unconverted but with the benefit of full planning consent, are attached but currently separated as two dwellings. If joined together the barns would collectively create an amazing home of about 4000 sq ft, or alternatively would suit multi-generational living or indeed to potential of living in one barn whilst utilising the other as a holiday cottage to generate an income, there is plenty of scope.

      Barn 6
      Providing modern living space over one seamless level, barn 6 has been recently converted to a high standard, to create spacious and light filled accommodation. An initial open plan area provides immediate impact with vaulted ceilings, and bi-fold doors linking the house with the York stone patio garden nestled within the idyllic gardens. This area hosts a calming living space, with wood burner, a hand made oak kitchen with Miele appliances, and dining area. A long hall with tall ceilings, leads to the principal bedroom with stylish en suite bathroom, with a second bedroom served by a further shower room.

      Design features include attractive, functional and large 1200mm sq ceramic concrete tiles throughout, exposed flint work, a mix of aluminium and oak windows, and hand made joinery throughout. The barn is energy efficient, well insulated and with underfloor heating, with a Swedish ‘Nibe' air source heat pump.

      Barn 5
      This is the largest of the two barns, and is a handsome brick and flint building of about 2500 sq ft. The barn requires complete renovation with full residential planning consent in place to convert the building into a wonderful family home. The accommodation with be over two floors, with a total of four bedrooms, and with views out to the courtyard and gardens.

      The original planning consent was granted in 2006 (Reference; PF 06/0736) and remains in perpetuity given the activation of converting barn 6.

      Planning Information
      The original planning permission was granted for all the Bard Hill Barns in 2006 (PF 06/0736*) – 5 & 6 Bard Hill Barns have full unexpired planning permission, and Barn No 6 was completed and signed off in June 2022 and has a full building warranty. In 2016, Barns 5 & 6 were subject to a further Non Material Amendment to change the dividing footprint between the two barns, as well as updated fenestration to include large glass windows on to the garden, which permitted a better more contemporary layout, giving more light and more garden access. (NMA1/06/0736) A more in-depth detailed construction report will be available. (*Note on the original planning documents 2006 the barns were numbered 7 & 8 but after subsequent later demolition of two dilapidated farm buildings, these barns were renumbered to 5 & 6).

      For further planning detail please refer to the selling agent.

      The barns are not listed, but are within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Full services are installed on the site and accessible to both barns, and the workshop.

      Gardens & Further buildings
      The charming gardens are a defining feature of the property, with about 0.6 acres of landscaped gardens, mostly flanked by attractive 17th century flint walls. The terraced nature of the land lent itself to creating different areas to enjoy. There is a general Italianate theme, with cyprus trees, borders of lavender, orchard and kitchen garden, divided into individual gardens by yew and beech hedging. Mown paths continue through a wild flower meadow, with olive trees, to the top of the gardens with seating areas taking in brilliant views across the famous coastline.

      A substantial steel farm barn of over 1200 sq ft is an excellent building for storage, and is currently used as a workshop with WC and kitchen area. The building could be utilised in many different ways to compliment the lifestyle of individual buyers.
