The Potential Dwelling
Planning consent has recently been granted by Mid Devon District Council (ref no: 15/01918/PNCOU) under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) order 2015 for the change of use of an existing agricultural building to a new dwelling under Class Q.

The building occupies a slightly elevated position adjacent to the existing farmhouse and close to the farm buildings. It is constructed of block elevations beneath a profile steel roof and measures approximately 22.80m x 5.34m overall. The approved plans provide for the conversion of the building to a single storey dwelling comprising of the following accommodation:-

Entrance hall with enclosed airing cupboard. Utility room. Bathroom with panel bath, wash basin and WC. Large open plan living room comprising of the kitchen, dining and sitting room areas. Rear entrance lobby. Master bedroom with en-suite shower room. Bedroom 2.

The barn occupies an attractive location, with far reaching views. It affords the potential to create a separate dwelling to serve the farmstead or alternatively and if purchased as a whole, an additional dwelling for ancillary accommodation or potential investment income.

The Farm Buildings
Situated to the east of the dwelling and bisected by the entrance drive, the buildings are of modern steel portal framed construction and readily adaptable to a variety of general agricultural, small holding and equestrian purposes. All are grouped around either concreted or hardened yards and may be further described as follows:-

Five bay steel and corrugated fibre cement roofed covered yard 22.80m x 8.83m with part precast and part space boarded elevations to one side and end.

Six bay steel and corrugated fibre cement roofed general purpose building 27.36m x 7.34m with part pre cast concrete and space boarded elevations. N.B. it is a condition of the planning consent that one bay of this building is converted to a farm office and the other, to a farm workshop.

It is a condition of the planning consent that the three bay steel framed and GI roofed fodder barn should be demolished and removed from the site prior to the occupation of the dwelling.

The Land
The land is contained within an attractive and convenient ring fence. It is either level or gently undulating, consisting of a productive loam which is presently certified for organic production. Although presently sown to productive leys, permanent pastures and cereal crops the land is equally suited to a variety of alternative crops. As well as being agriculturally productive, the holding also possesses amenity and conservation appeal and occupies a glorious positon within Mid Devon. In total lot 2 extends to about 72.74 acres as shaded pink on the identification plan.
