Full description

We are instructed to market a conveniently located yard on the outskirts of Barnard Castle, County Durham. The site is a former stonemason's yard and adjoins the A688, ideal for access to other major roads A67, A66 and A1 which are within easy travelling distance. In addition to its existing use as a former yard, the land has residential or commercial development potential. The site is offered for sale or lease in its present form or with development potential as a greenfield site.

Situation And Amenities - The site is located adjacent to the A688 on the outskirts of Barnard Castle and was formerly used as a stonemason's yard.
The site has excellent access to the A66, A67 and A688 and from those to the A1and Darlington (15 miles), Bishop Auckland (15 miles), Durham (24 miles), Carlisle (58 miles). Situated in the historic market town of Barnard Castle, this property provides easy access to the amenities within the town and its surrounding area. There are a number of nurseries, primary and secondary schools in Barnard Castle including Barnard Castle School and Teesdale School.
Barnard Castle has seen recent development with new housing off the A67 east of the town centre and in Startforth. Significant investment by GSK in their facilities in the town have been announced recently.

Description - The site is located adjacent to the A688 on the outskirts of Barnard Castle and was formerly used as a stonemason's yard.

Site Area - The site extends to approximately 1.63 acres or thereabouts as shown edged red on the attached plan.

Planning - The site to the south of the property has been developed by Taylor Wimpey. This site is marketed as Castle Vale, a development for 100 dwellings. Given the proximity of this development, it is envisaged that the site has the potential for residential or commercial development. On a strategic level, the site lies to the west of land that will be safeguarded for a potential Barnard Castle bypass, linking the A688 and A67. Consequently, the site is well placed in terms of the current road network but also that which is being planned for by the County Council.

Services - The site benefits from three phase electricity and a water supply.

Basis Of Offer - We are inviting offers for the purchase of the property or the letting of the site as a commercial site as a whole or in parts.

Purchase
The site is offered for sale in its existing use, subject to a development clawback.
Alternatively, offers are invited on a green field basis with a realistic estimate of planning costs and deductible costs. We anticipate a buyer undertaking site investigation works in order to satisfy themselves of any remediation costs (if any) before both parties commit to sale on an agreed price.

Lease
The site is also available for lease of the whole or part. Terms for a lease are to be agreed upon application.













The property will be sold freehold with vacant possession upon completion.

Local Authority - Durham County Council: 0300 260000

Wayleaves , Easements And Rights Of Way - The site is subject to and with the benefit of all existing rights including rights of way whether public or private, light, drainage, water and electricity supplies and all rights, obligations, easements, quasi easements and all wayleaves or covenants whether disclosed or not, areas, measurements and other information have been taken from various records and are believed to be correct but any intending purchaser(s) should not rely on them as statements of fact and should satisfy themselves as to their accuracy.
