Property Description

Full description


An attractive traditional farmbuilding suitable for conversion to form either a single dwelling or a live/work unit (subject to the grant of Planning Permission to replace the recently expired Planning Permission granted for this use) together with a grass paddock, the whole extending to 2.12 acres or thereabouts.

The property offers great scope and potential for a tasteful barn conversion in an attractive rural setting.

Directions - Bridge Farm, Meaux is situated on the east side of the Routh-Wawne road, south of the A1035 Beverley-Leven road. The farmbuilding is situated at the end of a tree-lined private drive leading from the Routh-Wawne road, approximately 2 miles south of Routh. Beverley lies some 6 miles by road to the west and central Hull some 6 miles to the south.

Agricultural Building Conversion Scheme - The farmbuilding (Unit 1) comprises part of a previously approved scheme of development granted planning consent under East Riding of Yorkshire Council Planning Reference: DC/12/03304/PLF/EASTSE.

This was a planning consent dated 7th December 2012 for the conversion of redundant agricultural buildings to form 2 x no live/work units, including internal and external alterations and erection of a single storey extension and retention of a two-storey extension. This planning consent has now expired.

The vendor is currently preparing an application for planning permission to replace the recently expired planning permission to form 2 x no. live/work units.

Condition No 2 of the recently expired planning consent, which relates to the traditional buildings at Bridge Farm, indicates that the units may be occupied either as a single dwelling or as a mixed use as a single dwelling and for business use, being Class B1 of the Schedule to the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987.

Class B1 comprises offices (other than Class A2 - Financial Services) or for research and development of products or processes, or for light industry. Please note, however, that convenants will apply to the sale preventing use of the property for uses which might be likely to give rise to disturbance to the purchasers of the adjacent properties.

The accommodation provided by each of the two units, as converted/extended, is shown within the extract of the architect's plan at Appendix B where the layouts for each of Unit 1 and Unit 2 are shown.

Unit 1 - Barn Conversion - Edged green on the plan attached at Appendix A.

A brick/pantile farmbuilding range formerly with planning consent to form a 4/5 bedroomed house or 3 bedroomed live/work unit plus offices.

Unit 1 comprises a two-storey barn conversion comprising living area, a living dining area, kitchen and office at ground floor level, with three bedrooms and an office at first floor level. The offices on each of the floors could alternatively be used as further living accommodation under the terms of the planning consent.

The architect's drawings show an area schedule of 194 square metres (2087.44 sqft) of floor space within Unit 1.

Unit 1 - Garden Curtilage/Paddock - Unit 1 is offered with gardens and grounds extending to 0.63 acres or thereabouts, including a car parking area to the south of the building.

A grass paddock area of 1.49 acres or thereabouts is offered with this Lot and lies to the east of the garden curtilage, accessed via a gateway from the garden.

Please also refer to the general stipulations within these particulars that make reference to services and boundary fencing covenants applicable to this property.

Unit 1 is offered with or without the paddock land.

Lotting/Adjacent Barn And Farmhouse - Unit 1 as detailed in these particulars is located adjacent to other traditional buildings formerly with planning consent to form a live/work unit and also Bridge Farmhouse. The entire property including the traditional buildings, is for sale as a whole or in three separate lots. Bridge Farmhouse is Lot 1, Unit 1 is Lot 2 and Unit 2 is Lot 3. The extent of each lot is shown on the plan attached at Appendix A. The following notes under the heading 'Lots 1-3 General Comments and Stipulations' have been included in these particulars in order to indicate the rights which will need to be reserved and granted in the event that Unit 1 is sold separately from the other traditional buildings (Lot 3) and Bridge Farmhouse (Lot 1).

Lots 1-3 General Comments And Stipulations - Private Drive from the Routh-Wawne road

The private drive comprising a gravelled tree-lined access drive from the Routh to Wawne road is to be retained within the ownership of Lot 1 (Bridge Farmhouse), but would be subject to a right of way at all times and for all purposes for the purchasers of Lots 2 and 3, subject to a clause allowing the purchaser of Lot 1 to recover from the purchaser of Lots 2 and 3 respectively, one third from each of the cost of maintaining the drive.
There will be a duty to maintain the drive imposed on the purchaser of Lot 1 to ensure that the drive is maintained, albeit that two thirds of the cost can be recovered from the remaining two purchasers.

Rights to Lay Pipes, Cables and Wires

Sufficient rights will be granted to the purchasers of each of Lots 2 and 3 to allow them to lay wires, pipes and cables alongside the drive from the Routh to Wawne road to service their purchases, subject to causing as little disruption as possible to the other two owners, and reinstating the land within a reasonable timescale. It is envisaged that the purchasers will work together to help defray overall costs and to minimise disruption.

Foul Drainage

The architect's drawings for the building conversion scheme showed individual foul water private treatment plants as serving each of the two building conversions. In addition, the existing septic tank serving Lot 1 - Bridge Farmhouse, is located where the proposed parking for Unit 2 (Lot 3) of the building conversions is proposed.
The vendors propose that the parties ideally should join forces to develop a single private treatment plant capable of serving all three Lots, which will have the effect of reducing the cost to each purchaser of the provision of foul drainage. Until such time as the new treatment plant is proposed, the existing septic tank arrangements that benefit Lot 1 will be retained.

Electrical Power Supply

Lot 1 has the benefit of an existing power supply which would be separated from the farmbuildings, and each of the purchasers of Lots 2 and 3 will be required to provide their own electrical power supply. Requisite easements for pipes and cables as between the three Lots will be made available for the benefit of each Lot. The purchasers of Lots 2 and 3 should make their own enquiries as to the provision of an electrical supply to each of the conversions.

Water Supplies

The current water supply to Bridge Farm is a borehole water supply which has served the farm for many years. It is understood that an allowance of 20 cubic metres per day of fresh water can be taken from the borehole and it is considered that this is likely to be quite sufficient to serve all three dwellings.
The vendors propose that the borehole supply should be shared between the three owners. Until such time as the supply pipework has been altered to serve the additional two dwellings, the right is reserved to the purchaser of Lot 1 to maintain its water supply.

Shared Rights of Access to Service Lots 2 and 3

The purchaser of Lot 3 would be entitled to a right of access, together with an obligation to share in the cost of maintenance of an accessway over Lot 2 and over land comprising part of Lot 1. A fair and equitable maintenance obligation will be incorporated into the transfers of each of the Lots.
The plans for these proposals may be viewed at either of the offices of the selling agents.


Sufficient rights will be granted for each purchaser to route underground, telephone and ADSL lines to each of the properties.
Purchasers should make their own enquiries as to the availability of telephone and internet services with their chosen supplier.

General Covenants to Protect Purchasers - Lots 1, 2 and 3

There will be a series of covenants incorporated into the sale of each Lot that seek to ensure that no undue disturbance is caused to the occupation of each of the dwellings by an occupier of each of the others.
Reasonable constraints on the timing and duration of building works at each of the dwellings and their future uses will be incorporated into the sales transfers to seek to ensure that purchasers can rely on tranquil occupancy of their purchases.

Boundary Demarcation Arrangements

The purchasers of Lots 2 and 3 will be required to erect and thereafter maintain within 12 months of the date of completion of the purchase certain fencing or walling requirements.
The covenant will require fencing, but the purchasers may consider that walling arrangements would be more in keeping, and the vendors, in discussion with adjacent purchasers, will be open to discussion about reasonable alternatives as long as they are at least as effective as the proposed covenant.
In broad terms, the purchaser of Lot 2 will be required to fence the boundaries A-B and C-D-E-F-G, as shown on the plan at Appendix C, and the purchaser of Lot 3 will be required to fence the boundary E-H-I (gateway at positions H-I)-J-K-L-M.
The purchasers of Lots 2 and 3 will be required to equally jointly fund the erection and future maintenance of a timber post and rail fence to subdivide the grazing paddock to the east of the farm buildings between the positions N and O on the plan at Appendix C.
