3 1

A rare opportunity to acquire an attractive detached farmhouse together with a detached barn with detailed consent for conversion to an independent residential unit the whole being set in a plot of a little under one acre.

DESCRIPTION Birches Farm is a rare and special opportunity to acquire an individual residence set in a delightful plot of a little under one acre. The property has been in the same ownership for many years and interested parties are presented with a particularly unusual opportunity. In summary the property comprises a detached three bedroom farmhouse which is in generally sound order but has further potential, kennels/outhouse/wc. Also in addition a detached barn that has detailed consent for conversation into a separate independent residence. As one would expect of a one acre plot, the feeling of space is immediately evident and in addition to formal gardens, there is a well tended paddock of good level gradient.

The farmhouse comprises of a three storey building which at ground floor level has a kitchen and three reception rooms. At first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. At second floor level, there are three attic rooms which have potential subject to the necessary planning permissions being granted to be converted into additional space. The barn which lies adjacent to the farmhouse but is detached from it, is in itself a hugely appealing opportunity. It is a lovely looking building and in addition to being aesthetically strong also has the benefit of a recently installed roof which is of excellent quality. The barn was originally approved for separate residential use back in 1989 with an application to Vale Royal Borough Council ref 4/19192. Subsequently in January 1995, there was another application again with Vale Royal Borough Council ref 4/28961. In a letter from Vale Royal Borough Council dated 23rd December 1999 Planning and Building Control Services confirmed that works had commenced with the creation of a new access this amounted to a material commencement of the development approved. Therefore today in 2019, a buyer has the certainty that the barn can be converted into a residential unit. Full copies of all relevant documentation will be included within the legal pack. When converted the barn will make an excellent family home if converted to a high standard will combine superb original features in the barn together with a contemporary specification and layout ideal for family life. The barn has the potential to be either separated from the farmhouse and lived in separately, or potentially being kept within the same legal title and being used as accommodation for extended family.

The overall plot is a little under one acre and believed to be 0.997 acre in total. It comprises both formal gardens and a high quality paddock. There is ample off-road parking and turning space for multiple vehicles.

Wright Marshall estate agents are specialists in individual property and this superb opportunity is an exceptional example of its type. An early viewing is recommended.
