** An exciting opportunity to acquire this residential redevelopment opportunity with circa 4 acres of grass paddock land, located on the fringes of the village of Little Fenton **


The Site - The Site This is shown in red on the attached plan. The development site comprises the farmstead which is a mixture of a single storey barn/stable with detailed planning consent to convert into a four bedroom single residential dwelling, Dutch barn and additional stables and barns. There are circa 3 acres of grass paddock land, menage, and additional 1 acre grass paddock included.

NB The Dutch barn and adjacent outbuilding are subject to an overage clause for 30 years whereby any planning consent granted, the sellers will be entitled to 50% of the uplift in value. The stables located to the front of the site are not subject to any overage or restricts for redevelopment. Should the Dutch barn be demolished, a condition of the sale will include the prospective purchaser(s) to create a breeze block retaining wall to divide the boundaries between the site and Grove Farm bungalow.

The stable and additional barns are of breeze block construction with an asbestos roof over and concrete flooring. There is electricity available to the stables and the barns that do not have planning consent.

Included within the sale is just under 3 acres of grass paddock land situated to the north west of the site. The land is enclosed by post and rail fencing. Located directly to the rear of the barn with planning consent is a menage and a further paddock, circa 1 acre.

We understand the neighbouring properties have vehicular rights of way access. A plan can be provided to confirm the exact boundaries.

There is an additional option to purchase a further 5 acres of grass paddock land subject to conditions. Please contact the details below for further information.

Tenure We understand the tenure to be freehold, although we have not had sight of title deeds or other legal documents.
