Property Description

Full description



The owner will consider the sale of the barn for business, employment or community uses, subject to terms being agreed.  The property will be sold subject to the following terms:

  • Purchase of the property is subject to a covenant restricting the use to only business, employment or community uses.

  • There will be a requirement for the purchaser (or successors) to pay a further £200,000 if any residential or other change of use is achieved enabling the property to be used for any form of domestic habitation.


The landlord will consider conversion of the barn to a range of business, employment or community uses subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent.

The total floor area is approximately 4,984 sq ft and the building could be divided to provide smaller units as follows:

  • Unit 1 - Ground floor and first floor mezzanine - 1,334 sq ft approx

  • Unit 2 - Ground floor - 1,506 sq ft approx

  • Unit 3 - Ground floor - 1,184 sq ft approx

  • Unit 4 - Ground floor and first floor mezzanine - 1,001 sq ft approx

Tenants will be expected to sign an Agreement to Lease prior to any works commencing.

The conversion cost, including ground works and utility connections, is estimated to be in the order of £40,000 depending on use and specification of conversion. Conversion is anticipated to take 6-9 months depending on specification.

Rent shall be agreed dependent on use and tenants' requirements.  Indicative rents are:

  • Storage - £2.00/sq ft to £3.00/sq ft

  • Workshop - £3.50/sq ft to £5.00/sq ft

  • Office/Business - £6.00/sq ft to £8.00/sq ft

Tenants can seek to finance or undertake conversion themselves and receive a rent free period in lieu of costs, subject to signing suitable lease terms.


Planning permission for a change of use and conversion will be required.  An application will need to be submitted once proposed uses and specifications are known and agreed.  Listed Building Consent is also required.  Obtaining planning consent is likely to take 3-6 months.  Who bears the cost of obtaining planning permission will be dependent on terms.
