Watch the video presentation tour. Boydens are pleased to bring to the market as joint sole agents this rarely available opportunity to purchase a detached Dutch style barn with planning permission granted to convert into a pair of semi detached residential homes with 3000 sq ft of living space in each property. Commutable Countryside Setting The current owners have farmed here since the early 1900’s. The barn was originally used when the family had an extensive pedigree milking herd which supplied milk to the local area. The Dutch barn was used to store straw, it was ideally situated beside the milking parlour and close to rich pasture land leading down to the River Colne. There are footpaths leading down to the river and across the valley including the Essex Way. The building to the north which housed the milking parlour is being dismantled, this will open up views both north and southwards. The surrounding land is still actively farmed with a mixture of arable for crops and pasture for grazing. The Agreed Plans The family have obtained full planning permission to convert the now un used agricultural building into two semi detached residential barn conversions. Working closely with the architects; Stanley Bragg, the family have designed modern, contemporary and eco friendly dwellings which incorporate a good sized ground floor living space with areas of double height ceilings, open plan living space incorporating modern kitchen with central island and an abundance of glass to the southern aspect enjoying farmland views down to the River Colne. The most recent plans create two bedrooms on the ground floor with access into a jack & jill style bathroom, separate WC and plant/utility room. On the first floor the plans include a large gallery landing with access to South facing balcony's, two larger bedrooms both with en suite's and each with private balcony's. Externally the agreed plans have double garages and a private south facing rear garden area. All detailed plans have now been signed off and planning conditions have been satisfied, these include ecological surveys completed by Robson Ecology, landscape scheme including car parking, drainage etc, building materials of larch cladding to the exterior, for full details on this, either make contact with ourselves or via the planning portal online planning permission number 181624.
