Exciting opportunity to develop a period farmhouse and barn with outbuildings set in twelve acres.

This is a remarkable opportunity to acquire a period farmhouse with a full set of agricultural barns and outbuildings, including a Grade II listed barn. There is planning permission in place for development of the whole into a fine, country house set in circa twelve acres and bounded by woodland on one side. From the listed barn are open views across countryside to the iconic White Horse cut into a south facing hillside of the North York Moors. Further adjoining land can be purchased by separate negotiation.

Planning permission has been granted to develop the Grade II listed barn into the principal house totalling some 1,948 sq ft and comprising six bedrooms and six bathrooms. The detached, former farmhouse is double fronted and is believed to date from the nineteenth century. It totals just under 2000 sq ft and has planning permission to be developed into ancillary accommodation as an office and gym.
