Rare opportunity off the beaten track.
Common Farm is situated in an enviable rural position enjoying a real feeling of space and privacy, being set within open farmland and bordering Swalcliffe Common.
The current property comprises:-
Lot 1 - a mobile home with separate annexe, gardens to the front and ample parking.
Lot 2 - extensive redundant farm buildings, stores, concrete yards, a belt of woodland and former quarry to the west.
The property has previously been run as a pig farm by the current owners, but farming ceased in 2004.
Whilst the property's original use is now redundant, the footprint and setting now offers the incoming buyer tremendous scope for re-development to create a single country residence. This would certainly enable the new property to take full advantage of its enviable rural position.
The proposed replacement dwelling will be centrally set within its domestic curtilage with scope to create garaging, outbuildings and grazing, if required. The amount of land being sold with accommodation represents about 2 acres, however the domestic curtilage is currently restricted to the area immediately around the current dwelling.
Architect drawings and a pre-application report for a replacement dwelling were submitted to Cherwell District Council in June 2018. Copies available from the selling agents.
A Lawful Development Certificate for an existing use or operation or activity including those in breach of a planning condition was granted 17th January 2019.
Please note the existing shared mains water supply will cease on completion of a sale. The incoming purchaser will need to connect to mains water or sink a bore hole.
If you have a bit of vision, then this is an amazing opportunity in a spectacular rural setting.Nick Rudge
