A unique opportunity has arisen to purchase a large barn with planning permission to create a superb family home in a quiet and peaceful south facing setting with stunning views across Alverstone Valley Nature Reserve and Brading Downs, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is on the outskirts of the charming village of Newchurch and includes a separate 20ft by 70ft Pole Barn and nearly seven acres of land surrounded by woodland and fields. This additional building could always become stables, garages, offices or a self-contained dwelling as a holiday let or for family members needing independent space, subject to the necessary planning permissions. In addition, if you want to stay on site while the building works are taking place, there is also a static two bedroom caravan available.
Approached via a private track at the end of Hill Top the barn is believed to date back to the 1600s. It is set well back from the quiet country road and includes impressive stone and chalk walls together with original vaulted ceiling and cross beams. Legend has it that these come from old ships but whether that is true or not these wonderful beams will provide character and charm when integrated into the new property.
The current plans are designed to create a truly special home that includes an impressive entrance and a vast central reception area with a bridge style galleried landing above. There is a large kitchen/dining room as well as a double bedroom and en suite shower, a laundry/utility room and a separate shower room. Also on the ground floor is a further reception room with independent external access and a separate staircase to a double bedroom and en suite shower room on the first floor, so this could always become a separate annex or integrated into the main house. The rest of the first floor incorporates a family bathroom together with six bedrooms all enjoying stunning rural views including the master with its en suite shower room. The plans can always be amended subject to the necessary planning consents to create a different interior layout as required.
Outside the land is well drained and not subject to flooding. It has an existing water supply with two water troughs in the field so would be ideal as paddocks for animals including horses. Much of the countryside and woodland beyond belongs to the Nature Reserve so includes a plethora of wildlife and cannot be built on.
