A collection of traditional farm buildings with planning permission for conversion into 1 or 2 residential dwellings, enjoying a peaceful rural setting with outstanding views across the Howardian Hills. A paddock of approx 2.5 acres is available by separate negotiation.

  • Freehold
  • Development Plot


Formerly part of the neighbouring Gower Hall, this

substantial collection of agricultural barns has clearly evolved over many years resulting in an interesting mix of stone and brick buildings which now represent an exciting opportunity to create either a substantial single dwelling or a pair of contrasting properties.

Planning permission was granted by Ryedale District Council on the 23 April 2015 (Ref: 15/00252/GPAGB) for a change of use to a pair of contrasting barn conversions, although there

is no reason why the buildings couldn’t be reconfigured to form a generous single dwelling incorporating an annexe and garaging. The existing plans provide for a generous 2 storey, 3 bedroom property with a large double height living area

and a kitchen breakfast room, as well as a 3 bedroom single storey barn with adjoining office and stores. Both barns will have a share of the internal courtyard and will enjoy sizeable gardens on 3 sides; each aspect providing contrasting views

of the neighbouring countryside.

Access is via a shared gravel driveway which splits and becomes a private driveway as a small bridge is crossed which marks the southern boundary of the proposed development. The opportunity remains to split the driveway at this point to ensure both planed properties have a separate drive but currently there is a single gravel track continuing around the eastern boundary to the north where there is a large parking area with an open sided steel framed barn and a corrugated Anderson shelter (which is to be removed as part of the planning permission). There is also an additional parcel of grazing land amounting to approximately 2.5 acres available by separate negotiation.
