A rare opportunity to purchase a detached unlisted barn with planning permission for conversion to create a five bedroom Stephen Langer-designed family home in a wonderful rural location.
The Barn at Shortridge Farm enjoys a superb rural location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is well set back from Sheepstreet Lane, which links the popular villages of Ticehurst and Etchingham.
The Barn is located below the main group of farm buildings to the north and is an unlisted agricultural structure, believed to have been erected around 1895 and standing on its own, with a southerly aspect and far-reaching views.
Planning permission Ref: RR/2016/3134/P, dated 3/03/2017 has been granted to convert this barn into a Stephen Langer-designed single-storey detached house with proposed accommodation of about 3,178 sq feet comprising spacious open plan reception rooms, five bedrooms, four bath/shower rooms, a south facing raised deck with access from the principal reception areas, cloakroom and parking.
The property will sit within grounds of about 2.2 acres and a landscaping scheme has been prepared to mitigate any concerns in relation to the impact that the proposal may have on the surrounding area.
Further information on the planning applications can be obtained from Rother District Council:
We would refer you to Rother District Council's Community Infrastructure Levy policy relating to new development at http://www.rother.gov.uk/CIL.
The site is currently accessed via a right of way over the entrance to Shortridge House next door. However, the planning consent allows for the creation of a new shared private drive which will be implemented at the point of sale.
Agent's Note: The site plans are provided for guidance only and are not suitable for use for Land Registry compliant purposes.
