Property Description

Full description

A substantial period farmhouse with adjoining cottages and a range of farm buildings in a derelict state with planning permission for conversion and extension to provide one large 5 bedroom detached house and one large 3 bedroom detached barn conversion.
The site is set in open green belt countryside with views of Dunstable Downs to the front and fields to the rear. It extends to about 0.69 of an acre.
(CB/13/02688/FULL) Planning was granted on 3 October 2013 and implementing works have been carried out to the knowledge of the Planning Department. Supporting reports are all available on the council website.
The plans provide for one large 5 bedroom detached house of 307m2 or 3,304 sq ft and a large 3 bedroom barn conversion of 182m2 or 1,959 sq ft
Services. Mains water, electricity and sewerage are available on site. The proposed purchaser must satisfy themselves as to suitability for the scheme.
The existing farmhouse is run down and boasts many of the characteristics of a much loved and handsome farmhouse, with charm, character and period features. It has high ceilings, fireplaces both upstairs and downstairs and large sash windows overlooking the fields to the front and rear. It has a large, private garden adjoining the fields and outbuildings that could have a multitude of uses (subject to planning permission). Next to the farmhouse are some old cottages, a large barn and stables which all have the potential for demolition and re-configuration into a modern scheme that combines old
and new.
The site provides a fantastic opportunity to create two substantial homes which can be designed to enhance the property and take full advantage of the large site and grounds that go with them. The architects have worked closely with local Planning Officers to maximise the site which, constrained by the Green Belt setting, provides an all too rare opportunity for a 'Grand Designs' style build and design to create two highly individual, yet practical, homes. A further single storey dwelling is proposed on land which is retained by the owners. It is possible that the retained grazing land may be available for rent by the prospective homeowners.

Method of Sale. The site is to be sold by sealed bid on the attached form. Proof of funds will be required. The proposed purchaser should expect to exchange contracts within 28 working days form receipt of draft contract and searches. Closing date for bids: 9 December 2016.

General: Local Authority Central Bedfordshire. Mains water, electricity and sewerage connected to site. Purchasers must establish the viability of these services.

Directions: From the A5 between Dunstable and Hockliffe, turn by Tilsworth Golf Club towards Stanbridge and the site is found on the right hand side after you have left Tilsworth.

Location: The site is situated on the road frontage between the villages of Tilsworth and Stanbridge, it backs onto fields at the rear and overlooks the road to Green Belt land and directly up to Dunstable Downs.
