About this property

  • Stone Barn comprises three period farm buildings with planning consent to convert to a character family dwelling. The middle section is an impressive stone barn believed to date from the 18th century.

    Attached on either side are red brick stables and coach house which date from the 19th century. Situated in a generous plot, planning permission (21/01812/FUL) has been granted for the conversion of the barns to a five bedroomed dwelling. A subsequent consent (22/02211/CND) approved the replacement of the stone roof tiles with natural slate. The approved plans show over 4,200 sq ft of living space with an impressive kitchen/ living/dining space forming the hub of the house. The ground floor also has a home office, utility room, cloakroom, dining room and family room. On the first floor is a main bedroom with en suite dressing room and shower room, four further bedrooms and three bath/ shower rooms. The main barn has fine original roof timbers and the buildings have plenty of door and window openings so enabling the conversion to have plenty of natural light.

A character barn in this desirable village with consent to create an impressive home.
