An exciting opportunity to acquire a Grade II Listed farmhouse and annexe with range of traditional, brick-built agricultural buildings in need of full program of renovation works, together with a general purpose outbuilding and grass paddock extending in all to approximately 0.41Ha (1.01 Ac).
The Property This Grade II Listed property comprises a substantial 3 bedroom farmhouse, with adjoining 2 bedroom cottage, thought to have been constructed in the late 18th century.
The property is of light red brick construction under a pan-tiled roof. Attached to the main dwelling are an extensive range of attractive and interesting, agricultural buildings forming an historic farmstead. The buildings on site have fallen into a dilapidated condition.
Immediately adjoining the house and cottage a single storey range of byers and stores form a fully enclosed courtyard, whilst to the rear a two storey former hay barn is now sectioned to provide a series of small workshops. Across the yard to the rear a range of redundant stables provide another detached structure which is two storey in some parts and boasts numerous curious features to the brickwork such as a dovecote.
A former garage and stable block lies to the entrance of the property which is of brick construction under a slate roof and having an attached pig house and enclosure.
A further detached general purpose barn lies adjacent to the secondary access to the site which is of steel and timber frame construction with fibre-cement corrugated sheet side and roof. Forming a triangular area of ground to the rear of the steading and flanking Redmarshall Road is a grassed paddock planted with mature trees to one end.
Services It is understood that the property is connected to mains electricity and water and that no drainage is currently connected.
Health & Safety Access to the inside of the buildings is strictly prohibited due to the dilapidated nature of the structure and the risk of harm to the general public.
Historic England The farmhouse and adjoining cottage are specifically referred to in the Historic England online listing. Whilst it is not considered that the remaining buildings form part of the listing, it would be prudent for any purchaser to seek independent advice from a heritage expert.
Tenure & Possession The freehold is offered for sale with vacant possession upon completion.
Planning Permission There is currently no planning consent in place for the conversion of the buildings on the site. Purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the extent of planning potential and the likelihood of achieving the same prior to bidding. Subject to obtaining the necessary consents the main farmhouse and cottage would be suitable for renovation to create a substantial family home.
The traditional agricultural buildings are thought to have strong potential for conversion to a number of residential units or accommodation which is ancillary to the main dwelling, for example holiday let properties.
The general purpose building is also thought to have development potential subject to obtaining the necessary consents and would provide a standalone dwelling with private grounds and separate access if required.
Rights and Easments It is understood that the mines and mineral rights are reserved to a third party.
Access Access is taken directly off the adopted highway. The main entrance is located to the West of the farm house and cottage whilst a secondary access exists approximately 50 metres west of the main entrance.
EPC Rating This property has been certified with an EPC Rating G/1.
Local Authority Stockton on Tees Borough Council.
