Full description

A unique opportunity to purchase a Grade II Listed farmhouse and adjoining outbuildings in a beautiful rural setting in the unspoilt hamlet of Hilton, overlooking countryside to the south. The farmhouse is an attractive stone built two storey dwelling in need of renovation with combined living/dining room, separate sitting room, kitchen and WC with three bedrooms and a bathroom to the first floor. An adjoining single storey stone outbuilding offers potential to convert and create additional living space to the main farmhouse. The outbuilding adjoining the south of the house (Unit 1) had permission to convert into a three bedroomed dwelling.

Planning Permission - Planning consent was granted under the provisions of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservations Areas) Act 1990 for conversion of outbuildings to create two dwellings, raise rear eaves level of Unit 3 and raise rear window level over lean-to Unit 3, granted 8 March 2012, subject to conditions. NB although the permission lapsed in March 2015, we understand the Council has confirmed that it would not object to a renewed submission. Application No. 6/2011/0356/DM/LB.
A further application was submitted and granted in June 2012 in relation to Unit 1, where permission was granted to amend the original application yet still retaining three bedrooms with a different layout. Application No. 6/2012/0176/DM/LB

Central Heating - An oil fired central heating system was installed in February 2017. We understand that Listed Building consent and planning permission for the siting of the oil tank and external boiler was not sought and was outstanding as at 23rd May 2017.

Services - Mains water, drainage and electricity are available nearby.
