A Rarely occurring Opportunity to acquire a

A 1 ½ acre (or thereabouts) Site with recently granted Planning Permssion for the imaginative conversion of an existing Steel framed Building to a spacious and most unusual two storey Family Home with a nearby two bedroomed annex for ancillary accommodation.

Messrs. Nigel Ward & Co offer for sale by private treaty

An excellent project for builders/developers to help satisfy the unsatiated demand for rural properties.


The Main Building is a General Purpose portal frame Building of irregular shape, constructed of steel and is 56' in length at one side and 63'4" at the other, and 28' wide, with a lean-to to one side, 40' long x 5'8" wide.   The new elevations are to be of dark green profiled sheeting and the roof covering is to be of "Big 6" sheeting.


The plans, as prepared, will provide the following accommodation, (measurements are provided for identification only): however some internal re-arrangement may be feasible to suit the new owners provided that the external appearance is not altered. The measurements provided are approximate and the precise dimensions of the various rooms will depend to an extent on the wall finishes.


The accommodation; which it is intended will be heated by a Ground Source Heat Pump, is to comprise:


On the Ground Floor:

Full length Verandah, 63’4” x 6’, with part glazed door to Entrance Hall, 12’8” x 9’6” inclusive of stairs leading off, Capacious Lounge, 26'3" x 18' with wood-burning stove, one fully glazed side with two pairs of French windows leading out to the exterior with recessed under-balcony sitting-out area, double doors to open-plan Dining Room/Snug, 25'7" x 12'8", Kitchen 15'9" x 14'10" with peninsular base unit, door to Utility Room, 15’2” x 11'11" average, also to house the heat-pump unit, Shower Room off, 10'6" x 8'6" average.


Stairs from the hallway lead to

On the First Floor:

Landing 9’6” x 9’ including part of staircase, access off to Six Double Bedrooms each with En-Suite Facilities and comprising Bedroom (1) 15'9" x 10'2", with French windows off to balcony with glass balustrade, Bedroom (2) 18' x 10', again with French windows off to balcony with glass balustrade, Bedroom (3), 13'4" x 12'8", Bedroom (4) 13'4" x 8'10", Bedroom (5), 12'4" x 8'6" and Bedroom (6), 10'2" x 8'10".



which extend in all to about 1 ½ acres are accessed via wide double gates leading off the public highway to a very large area of hard-standing for parking and turning immediately to the front of the main Building to be converted.  There is currently a long range of Storage Sheds to one side of the yard area, which would be ideal for the storage of building materials and possibly for use as a Workshop for use during the course of the carrying out of the building works. It is proposed that

these single storey buildings would eventually be removed and replaced with a smaller New Garage Building, of timber construction under a corrugated sheet roof, to be 49'6" long x 20' deep and to be divided into an Open Garage, 18’ x 10’10”, an Enclosed Garage, 18’ x 11’6”, a Workshop/Store 18’ x 11’6” and an Office, 18’ x 10’10”.From the principal yard area, there is a wide, hard surfaced access through to level/gently sloping grounds to the furthermost end of which is a large, picturesque Amenity Pool, fed by a spring and forming a veritable haven for wildlife with Weeping Willows, other trees and Water Lilies as well as aquatic fauna.  At present there are various access/walk ways and earth banks, but with further landscaping, this area could form part of the vista from the main dwelling.


New Ancillary Accommodation.

The planning permission includes consent for a new ancillary accommodation unit to be constructed on the footprint of an existing timber building, this to be built with local stone cheek walls, standing under a “green” Sedum roof and to have a timber front elevation generously fenestrated with glazed double doors and side panels. The accommodation is to comprise a Living Room, 15'4" x 12', double doors to Kitchen / Breakfast Room, 14'10" x 12', Utility Room to house the heat-pump unit and with Cloakroom, off.  Passage with access to Bedroom (1) 12' x 10'2", Bedroom (2) 11' x 8'2" and a Bathroom.



A further pasture field of just over 1 ½ acres may be available separately, this is located just across the lane from”Penderw Pool”.
