An exciting opportunity has arisen to handcraft your own home from this handsome stone built barn. Forming part of the attractive hamlet of Fenwick, it is located near to Matfen Village and the Tyne Valley in prime Northumbrian countryside. Planning Permission (reference: CM/20090475 June 2010) has been granted for the creation of a large detached bespoke family home on an uncomplicated, level, south facing site with extensive garden and grounds.
The site has been fully prepared for immediate development and there is scope and local precedent, to create a much larger and more substantial detached property (subject to normal planning consents/amendments) if desired.
The barn is approached by a newly laid private tarmac driveway with external groundworks already undertaken including the removal of overhead electric cables and installation of a new sunken dedicated electric supply, a new water supply, rain water drainage, field drainage and connection to a shared septic tank which has already been installed. Additional works include minor landscaping and boundary fencing and the removal of a corrugated lean-to in preparation for the extension of the kitchen.
The Old Barn occupies an enviable and expansive plot outlined in blue on the location plan. The freehold is available upon completion.
The consented scheme allows for a spacious reception hall with full height ceiling to first floor which will provide an excellent sense of arrival and accessing all ground floor rooms including a dual aspect living room, study and living dining kitchen, allowing just the right mix of formal and informal space. There are also two double bedrooms and a bathroom. On the first floor there are a further two double bedrooms and a bathroom.
The planning provides for the building of a single garage. The Old Barn looks out over a large area of garden with the whole site extending to approximately one acre. Currently uncultivated, the gardens offer the opportunity to create an individual haven from which to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding countryside.
The Old Barn is absolutely the answer for someone aspiring to create their own perfect home in a first class and beautiful part of rural, yet convenient Northumberland.
