This site provides a rare opportunity to convert a detached steel portal framed barn into spacious two storey residential accommodation. The barn has been granted prior approval for change of use from an agricultural building to a two storey dwelling with building operations reasonably necessary for the building to function as a dwelling.

The site extends to 1.43 acres in all (with a further 3 aces available by separate negotiation) with a purpose built stable block opposite the barn for conversion within the yard. The stable block has two loose boxes with stable door access and a separate tack room with independent stable door access.

Beside the barn and stable to the eastern side is a fenced sand based arena/manege, with a further open fronted timber built shelter with pitched slate roof to the northern edge of the arena with gated access adjacent.

To the western edge of the concrete yard and at right angles to the barn is a container unit which has a power and water supply and kitchenette and sleeping area within. This building does not benefit from planning consent but has been on site in excess of 10 years.

The land is dissected by the current access drive and is predominantly pasture ideal for mowing or grazing.
