Outstanding Period barn with land having consent for conversion to dwelling.


Main Description *** INFORMAL TENDER ***

This really is a wonderful opportunity to convert an outstanding and extremely spacious Period barn set in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds, to provide a spacious residential accommodation of approximately 2,350 square feet which overlooks the paddock retained by the property and the delightful Wolds countryside adjoining the plot. The barn is located along a very picturesque lane to the South West of the quaint village of Foston-on-the-Wolds in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds which itself is found between the market towns of Beverley and Driffield and also have excellent access to the East Yorkshire coast. Planning permission was granted on the 30th November 2015 and full consent and architects drawings are available at the agents office.

Location The barn is approached via a pretty single track lane with no through traffic and leading to the historic mill pond and trout stream which is a designated site of special scientific interest.

Foston-on-the-Wolds is an idyllic unspoilt village with a thriving community centred on the Parish Hall and St Andrews' Church which dates back to the 13th century and has a Norman nave and chancel.

The market town of Driffield is some six and a half miles to the West whilst the historic market town of Beverley is only approximately 16 miles away. The village itself is also ideally located for access to the East Yorkshire coast.
