    About this property

    • Formally agricultural buildings converted and developed in the early 2000's into offices. The current vendors have secured planning permission under permitted development rights to convert into a residential dwelling.

      Set within a gated, cob-walled courtyard, itself surrounded by rural views, sits a modern two storey, oak-framed building. Renshaw Barns comprises a large barn, with the original agricultural building to one side and a re-built smaller barn to the other; all are broadly in keeping with the original buildings on site.

      The oak framed element is a high quality build, with exposed frames having pegged mortice and tenon joints. There are full height windows in a number of places, many of which frame delightful rural views across the valley. A feature double height vaulted main entrance hall allows in plenty of light and provides the feeling of space.

      The current planning allows for the retention of the large full height entrance hall and provides for an open-plan style kitchen/dining room and snug, a utility room, study and a drawing room. In total there will be five bedrooms comprising a principal bedroom with dressing area and en suite bathroom, with two further bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor.
      In addition, the planning permission includes conversion of one of the two smaller office buildings into a separate two bedroom annexe. The other office building is currently let on a lease further details available upon request. This office could also be converted in to residential use under permitted development rights. A garden store completes the outbuildings.

      A traditional garden wall encloses much of the property which is surrounded on three sides by farmland. The garden is very private. There are two gated access/exit points to the village road, an advantage given that one of the barns will continue to be let short term. The landscaping attached to the planning permission shows a lawned area, itself bordered with planting to enhance the privacy from the proposed annexe and existing office. No doubt there would and could be further planting alongside the cob wall and a parking area to suit a buyers' style and design.

      Please note that whilst two of the three building has permission for conversion to residential use, one building is let as an office and has ongoing commercial use. The current Lease term is 3 years from 01/03/23. The annual rent is £9,800. The current tenant is actively looking for new premises. This office building could be converted in to residential use under permitted development rights.

    This is one of the most exciting opportunities I have seen in recent years. An excellent foundation to create a wonderful family house with versatile accommodation in the ever popular Woodford Valley.
