Barn
Attached to the annexe is an excellent-sized barn measuring approximately 11.7m (38'5") x 5.3m (17'5") with large timber workshop attached. Verbal consent has been given and a letter received from the local council stating there would be no reason to object should someone choose to submit for outline planning permission for a three-bedroom barn conversion. The garden areas are easily divisible to allow a separate access and outdoor space for the barn which would enhance further this fantastic investment opportunity.
