Building A Coville House benefits from two traditional stone barns. Building A is located close by to the Modern agricultural buildings and has some potential to convert to residential conversion, subject to gaining the necessary consents. The Vendors have in recent years, undertaken some improvement works including re-roofing and re-pointing.
Architect drawings commissioned by the Vendors are available upon request from the Selling Agent.
Planning Building A at Coville House is a sizeable 81.50m2 (Gross External Area) and well-maintained, traditional style barn building which has strong suitability for conversion into a residential unit through gaining planning consent.
The property is located within the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and use of sensitive design to reflect the rural character of the surrounding area, would be appropriate for the conversion of the barn building.
Traditional Buildings - Building B The second traditional building, named High Lathe, is constructed of stone under a sheet roof, potentially asbestos.
High Lathe is located in an isolated position. The Gross External Area of High Lathe (Building B) is 79.74 m2.
Modern Buildings - Building C and D Coville House benefits from two large steel portal framed modern buildings together with concrete flooring, water supply and internal feed barriers. These buildings are ideally suited for livestock or equestrian use.
The Gross External Area of Building C and D is 768.35m2.
Land Set within a ring fence, the land comprises gently undulating productive pasture and hill ground, capable of supporting both cattle and sheep enterprises.
The total area of the Property is approximately 37.75 Hectares (93.28 Acres).
The Land at Coville House is classified by the Agricultural Land Classification as Grade 4. The boundaries of the property predominately compromise dry stone walls with timber and stock net fencing.
Services This land is serviced by a spring fed water supply. The water supply is fed from the moor and there is a piped supply running to the modern buildings and to some field parcels.
