Price reduced to guide price £215,000 FREEHOLD
The Long Barn, Newton, Brecon, Powys, LD3 8PA
The Long Barn presents a wonderful opportunity to convert an impressive Grade II Listed stone barn into a most attractive and unique family home.
The property is situated in an idyllic setting at the centre of Brecon Golf Course and within a short distance of the River Usk.
It is set within a small cluster of historic buildings, which include an impressive Grade I listed Elizabethan Manor House called Newton, which has played an important role in the history of Brecon.
The Long Barn is believed to date from at least 1691 and there is evidence of historic domestic use (possibly servant quarters) at the western end and the rest is believed to have used for agricultural purposes from the early 18th century.
The unique location in the centre of a parkland golf course and near the River Usk in the heart of The Brecon Beacons, provides many opportunities for those seeking the enjoyment of outdoor life.
PLANNING AND LISTED BUILDING CONSENT
The building is one of two on the site with permission for conversion into dwellings. Consent for conversion into a five bedroom property was granted at appeal by the Welsh Assembly Government in November 2009 ref. no. APP/P9502/A/09/2108968.
Available to download at http://www.breconbeacons.org under ref no. 08/01839/LBC.
Listed building consent for the conversion of the barn to a dwelling was granted by Brecon Beacons National Park in December 2009 ref no. 08/01839/LBC
