Tenure: Freehold

***EXCITING DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY***Set well back from Whittingham Lane, a traditional barn with PLANNING CONSENT for 3 RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES, with a further range of traditional brick outbuildings and more modern buildings providing FURTHER DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL should it be required, subject to gaining the necessary Planning Consents. Set within a total plot of 0.89 ACRES ota.The property benefits from Planning Consent by way of Preston City Council under a full Application for conversion of the 2-storey brick under pitched slate roof barn, into 3 semi-detached properties. A range of single-storey traditional buildings to the rear and side of the property will provide each of the properties with a double garage.

A further exciting element for the property is that the remaining more modern agricultural buildings have considerable potential for conversion under a General Permitted Development for the conversion of redundant agricultural buildings into up to 3 further dwelling houses, totalling not more than 450 sq.m. These more modern agricultural buildings are located to the South and West of the main barn and potentially provide the opportunity for the property to be converted into a small, exclusive hamlet of up to 6 residential properties.

The barn comprises of a substantial Victorian brick under pitched slate roof property which both internally and externally is in excellent structural condition. The property benefits from regular window and door openings to both the ground and first floors and provides sufficient roof height to easily create 3-storey dwellings.
The dwellings comprise of 2 end terraced, 4 bedroom, 2 reception room properties, with the mid-terraced property being that of a 3 bedroom, 1-reception room property.

Externally, to the front of the properties can be found attractive views over the surrounding open countryside and to the rear can be found currently a concreted yard area, however, we have been informed underneath this concrete retains the original cobbled courtyard, leading to a range of detached brick under pitched slate roof buildings originally forming single storey cattle housing, which provides potential to be converted into 2 double garages serving the properties No.2 and No.3.

To the side of the properties can be found a further detached brick under pitched slate roof cattle buildings, which will provide a double garage for the remaining barn conversion.

To the South of the barn can be found a substantial timber under box profile roof former cattle building and to the West, a block under fibre cement roof former pig building.

From discussions with the Planning Consultant previously used, these provide fantastic potential for Applications for conversion under Part-Q Prior Notification Application.

The property is located in a fantastic semi-rural location within easy access of the varied amenities of Goosnargh village and of the M6 at Junction 32.

Briefly, the plans provide for:

Unit No.1 - entrance hallway, lounge, sitting room, cloakroom and open-plan dining/kitchen, to the first floor, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and to the second floor, a master bedroom and en-suite.

Unit No.2 - open-plan living room/dining room, dining/kitchen, utility and cloakroom, to the first floor 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a study/single bedroom, and to the second floor, master bedroom with en-suite.

Unit No.3 - entrance hallway, cloakroom, sitting room, open-plan kitchen/diner/day room, dining/
kitchen and utility, to the first floor 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and to the second floor a master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite.

Externally, the properties are located within a good-sized garden plot and to the rear there is consent for the construction of a pair of semi-detached brick under pitched slate roof garages. To the side of the property and providing a garage for Barn 1, can be found a further brick under pitched slate roof building providing potential for a further double garage space.

Consent was granted by Preston City Council by way of Application No. 06/2016/0200 and copies of the Consent Notice and proposed plans are included within these particulars. In relation to the remaining modern agricultural buildings, consent has not been applied for, however, the Planning Consultant has indicated that in her opinion, this would be looked on favourably.

Should the purchaser wish to exercise this, a Clawback would be in place requesting 40% of the uplift in capital values, increasing from its existing agricultural use to that of residential housing.
