Full description

A rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a superbly situated barn to the south of the Lincolnshire Wolds village of Benniworth that offers open rural views to the south and west elevations right across this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The barn has been granted with 'Approval of Change of Use' with the intention of converting the existing building into a three bedroom residence.

The result, we feel, will be a fine property with enviable outlook and positioning to also include just over 7 acres of land, recently sown to a grass ley.

Location - The property is situated within the village of Benniworth which lies on the western edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The market towns of Louth, Horncastle, Market Rasen, the Historic City of Lincoln and the A1 road link at Newark are within commuting distance.

Directions - From Market Rasen take the A631 road east towards Louth and before entering the village of Ludford, turn right onto the B1225 road towards Horncastle, at the next junction continue straight ahead taking the second right turn signposted Benniworth.
Proceed into the village, turn left at the crossroads and continue along this road until reaching a right hand turning onto Silver Street. Continue nearly to the end of Silver Street, turning left just before 'Top Farm' where the barns gravelled access track will be apparent.

Introduction - The proposed dwelling would see conversion of the existing building to provide a two storey property that has been suggested could comprise Lounge, Hall, Cloaks WC, Dining Kitchen to the ground floor and Three Bedrooms to the upper floor, each with their own en-suites.
Planning Permission for Application for the Prior Approval of Proposed Change of Use of Agricultural Building to a Dwellinghouse has been granted 18/04/2016 by East Lindsey District Council Planning Office

The current barn has three individual store areas, the middle store a noteworthy feature of former double cart bay, with lofts above however it is worth noting that the loft above is not a complete floor in the smallest store area. The existing lean to is to be removed.
The barn is accessed via its own drive and mains services for electricity and water are situated nearby on the nearby Silver Street.
