BEST AND FINAL OFFERS TO BE MADE BY 17:00 ON 27TH MAY 2021. A unique residential conversion opportunity (Class Q) with approximately 1.36 hectares / 3.36 acres of agricultural land at Great Whittington.

We are pleased to offer a unique residential conversion opportunity (Class Q) with approximately 1.36 hectares / 3.36 acres of agricultural land located at High Baulk Farm, Great Whittington, Northumberland.

The granted planning permission is for the conversion of an existing barn to a residential dwelling. The proposed dwelling comprises of a detached four bedroom (two with en-suite facilities) property with open plan living and kitchen area, utility room, and integral garage amounting to approximately 2,400ft² / 222m².

For schooling, there are first, middle and high schools available in Corbridge and Hexham. There is a private primary school at Mowden Hall with a number of private primary and secondary schools in Newcastle.

The Property
The conversion opportunity consists of a steel portal frame finished with metal cladding (as pictured).

The land included with the barn is currently in use as private grazing land (as pictured).

Located to the south of the Property is the main farm house along with traditional agricultural outbuildings. These outbuildings are subject to a further planning application for residential development.

The Property will be sold subject to a restrictive covenant whereby no more than one residential dwelling will be permitted on the site included within the sale.

Prior approval (under Class Q) for proposed change of use of agricultural building to one dwelling house only was granted by Northumberland County Council (application reference 19/00709/AGTRES) on 23rd April 2019.

It is understood that an electricity and water supply are located within the owner’s retained land. The development is not currently connected to drainage and it is anticipated that drainage would be accommodated by the installation of a septic tank.

Purchasers are recommended to seek independent advice as to the availability, suitability and cost of connection of services to meet their requirements.

A right of access at any time and for all purposes will be granted over the shared private driveway from the public highway. It is anticipated that part of the shared drive will be upgraded in line with the wider farm steading development.
