An "L" shaped range of barns measuring approx. 4,000 square feet and consisting of an 18th century two storey threshing barn with an adjoining range of single storey farm buildings, all set in a enclosed farmyard which is surround by a brick wall with stone copings.
The threshing barn was built of brick in the 18th century and was thatched originally but was replaced with tin at a later date. The original stone floor is still present. The single storey buildings are a mixture of 18th and 19th century brick and slate construction.
These barns were part of the Brockhall Estate. They were upgraded and made more decorative in the 19th century and boast features such as the blue brick arches (these are seen in the nearby range of model farm buildings which were part of the same estate).
They are generally in reasonable condition and structurally sound and are still as they were when the animals left.
The barns have the advantage of varied versatile planning permissions.
i) They are now available for conversion into two residential units
ii) They also have a mixed consent as a "live work" unit so that you can run your business from them subject to certain criteria.
iii) They also have planning permissions to convert into three holiday lets which again is business use.
The buildings and land consist of 12 acres. The barns are offered for sale with two acres with additional land open to further negotiation. At present the land is accessed from the A5 via two original entrances but these are for agricultural use. Permission has been granted to create a new safer entrance and the initial works to create this have been started.
If you have horses this land also has the added benefit of accessing a nearby bridleway across adjoining fields without having to negotiate any main roads.This is still registered as a smallholding and receives a small revenue which can be transferred as the land will still have permission for agricultural use.
The barns are connected to mains water and also have a fresh water spring in the farmyard which is constant, accessible and freely available.
