An exciting opportunity to acquire a Nissen barn farm building with granted permitted development rights to convert into residential use. Introduction The site sits in a picturesque position approximately 1 mile to the north east of the sought-after village of Cavendish down a quiet, rural ''no through road' country lane. The site extends to approximately 0.6 of an acre in total and is a gently sloping site. - General Permitted Development Granted 14th December 2020 - DC/19/2318/P3QPA - There is a further agricultural barn adjacent to this site that previously also benefited from permitted development to be converted into two residential dwellings. That consent has now expired and the owners have put it to appeal in an effort to get that re-established. DC/21/0070/P3QPA Prior Approval Application under Part 3 of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Amendment and Consequential Provisions) (England) Order 2015 - Change of use of agricultural building to dwellinghouse (Class C3) to create two dwellings The vendors are happy to consider the sale of the whole site. Proposed Dwellings A superb opportunity to create three spacious and eye catching 2 bedroom properties from this modern farm building under a Class Q consent, permitted development. The existing barn is corrugated asbestos clad which under the consent is believed can be replaced with alternative replacement profile corrugated sheeting and with the introduction of stunning, large glazed panel windows to the front and rear elevations, which as well as affording excellent views particularly to the front of the property, should also flood the accommodation, which will have wonderful volume due to the dimensions of the building, with light. The three converted dwellings proposed will each consist of 2 bedrooms and with open plan kitchen reception rooms and will equate to about 92.9m (1,000 sq ft) of floor space, with the parking to the side. The properties will also benefit from gardens located to the rear of the barn and the site is to include the concrete yard to the front. Attached to these sales particulars are copies of example elevations and plan drawings (not to scale). Purchasers should confirm the size of the dwelling by their own calculations prior to exchange of contracts. Cameron Mckenna, Chartered Building Surveyor, will be happy to discuss the basis of this consent, that he has gained permission for on (07920 527687) or if that is of assistance. As part of the consent granted, the recommendations (as can be found on the West Suffolk local authority planning portal as one of the documents associated with the consent granted) of the Bright Green Ecological Appraisal and Environmental Site Assessment should be studied along with the Structural report also associated with the consent.
