- Detached former store with planning permission for one bedroom dwelling
- Two storey rear extension to be completed
- Finished to the size of around 700 sq/ft
- Village centre location
- Westerly facing rear garden and patio
Owned by the Gloucester Diocesan Trust and positioned within ear shot of Blockley's famous choir of church bells, this former storage facility for the parish church has recently been granted planning for a substantial rear extension creating a detached cottage with a walled garden of approximately 700 sq/ft (65 sq/m) and is infact being sold to support the restoration of the Church bells. The planning permission allows for the renovation of the existing building, using reclaimed materials wherever possible which will become the property's living room and a two storey new build extension to the rear incorporating a diner kitchen, double bedroom, bathroom and ground floor cloakroom.
The walled garden will be accessed from the first floor mezzanine and incorporate a patio, planted area and have a westerly aspect taking full advantage of the afternoon and evening sunshine.
Many people will have driven past The Bier House without even noticing it was there as the property is set back from Lower Street behind land owned by the Highways Agency. There is therefore parking in front of The Bier House but only on an unallocated basis. 30 yards to the rear of the property is the entrance to the grounds of St Peter's and St Paul's Church, the Manor House and the grounds of Mill Close with its secluded ornamental pond. Only a few yards further on is the square and the centre of Blockley, close to the village green and Blockley shop and cafe. The village has two public houses and is located midway between the North Cotswold market towns of Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh, the latter having rail links to Oxford and London Paddington.
When work is completed the property would make a perfect holiday cottage or second home or indeed a permanent home for those looking for a compact village retreat.
All interested parties are advised to log on to Cotswold District Council website and under planning permission check the decision notice application reference 16-00340-FUL- file reference CD9536, decision date 14th July 2016.
