The Property
Slate House is a Grade II Listed house that benefits from a detached barn to the rear. Planning permission and Listed building consent has been granted for the construction of a single-storey link to connect the house to the barn, together with the change of use of the barn and land to residential use (Appeal Ref: APP/P2935/Y/15/3130844 and Appeal Ref: APP/P2935/W/15/3130845).

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire and develop a traditional house and barn to create a spacious home that blends period and contemporary features. The property sits in an enviable location in a rural setting yet with easy commuting distance from various regional centres. The completed property will feature a generous open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room with a combination of full height glazing and glazed bi-fold doors to the southerly elevation. A further sitting room will also have a wall of glazing and French doors to fully appreciate the southerly aspect. On the ground floor there will also be a contemporary glazed link, a snug, downstairs bedroom with en-suite facilities and a utility room. To the first floor there will be a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

The planning permission provides for a hardcore/gravel parking and turning area, with garden areas, paths and terraces to the front, side and rear of the property.
