Barn for conversion in attractive village setting. Plans for dwelling about 2,787ft (259m) with gardens, parking and paddock. In total about 1.20 acre.

Situation And Description - This Grade II listed barn for conversion is situated set back away from the village road in the village of Sutton Benger which is a popular and sought after area within easy reach of Chippenham (about 4 miles).

The village has local amenities including post office/stores, public houses, village hall and Church. Chippenham has a wide range of shopping, leisure and entertainment along with both junior and senior schools There is a mainline station and easy access to Swindon and the M4 motorway.

The barn is of stone construction with a stone tiled roof with a single storey return of former cow byres. It is situated to the rear of the former farmyard and overlooks farmland to the rear.

Access to the barn is from the village road over the driveway in front of the farmhouse and into the courtyard area with ample space for parking. There is consent for a garage to the garden area on the right hand side, however the layout leaves some flexibility as to where the parking would be.

Part of the accommodation is within the adjoining cow byre creating the flexibility whereby this could be occupied as part of the house or as a separate self contained cottage.

A feature of the proposed plans is the fantastic open plan living area with vaulted ceiling at first floor height and large window over looking the paddock and beyond.

Apart from the front courtyard there is a good sized area to the side tucked away with stone walling which could be used as garden or for parking and garaging. To the rear the proposed plans allow for a garden running all across the back. Behind this is a level paddock with a modern open barn which extends to about 0.82 acre.

Cont. - Detailed planning consent for the conversion of the barn, outbuilding and alterations to the farmhouse was granted by Wiltshire Council on the 19th January 2012. This consent has been implemented however a revised application for conversion of the barn and adjoining cow byre to a residential dwelling has been submitted to Wiltshire Council under Application No. 16/07661/FUL and was granted on 11th October 2016.

The proposed plans for the barn have an overall internal floor area of about 2,787ft (259m) and comprise on the Ground Floor Entrance Hall, large vaulted open plan Kitchen/Dining/Living, Sitting Room/Snug, Utility Room, 2 Bedrooms, Shower Room and Cloakroom.

On First Floor will be the Master Bedroom with Dressing Room and En-suite, Guest Bedroom, Bathroom, Cloakroom and Study. Copies of the decision notices and relevant plans are available from the Auctioneers.

The barn and paddock are shown coloured pink for identification purposes only on plan and extend in total to about 1.14 acre. The adjoining farmhouse (Lot 10) is shown coloured blue. It is believed all main services are available nearby but it is the responsibility of prospective purchasers to satisfy themselves as to the availability and suitability of such services by making all necessary enquiries of the relevant statutory authorities.
