A development site with approved planning consent that comprises a period farm house, two unconverted period barns and two new build units that is located within the heart of the village.

Measuring approximately 1.2 acres with a wide frontage onto the High Street, this farm yard site consists of a period farm house that is set a little back from the road, a collection of barns and a paddock. The three bedroom farmhouse requires refurbishment, to the side is a vehicular entrance. Adjacent to the side boundary is a stone built period barn with consent for accommodation over two floors and behind the farmhouse is an “L” shaped brick built barn and stables with consent to convert into a single story residential dwelling. The driveway extends through to an area of paddock where there is approved consent for two new build houses. Please note that, prior to completion, the sellers will remove the steel portal frame building which stands behind the brick barn. The portal frame building which stands between the house and the brick building is included in the sale. At the time of application the sellers intended to grant themselves access past the two new units to retained land beyond and in order to allow for this driveway passing to the side, the houses applied for were semi detached. The site is now being sold without onward access which will allow for the new houses to be larger and detached. A positive pre-application enquiry has been obtained from the local authority which states 'There would be no objection to a pair of detached dwellings being provided in lieu of the permitted semi detached dwellings (units 4 & 5), provided that they are both sited so as to avoid encroaching onto the historic easement and the mass and design would be in keeping with the character of the area and the Earls Barton conservation area'. A full copy will be included within the legal pack.
