About this property

Detailed Description

The property forms part of Platts Farm and has Planning Consent for the conversion of two barns into two detached dwellings with associated gardens and a new access. One of the dwellings will benefit from a partly retained cart lodge.

The sale boundary is shown outlined red on the attached plan. This area encompasses the two barns and the immediately adjacent gardens and proposed access.

Several of the existing outbuildings included within the sale boundary must be removed as part of the conversion.

Platts Farm Barns are located on the western side of the High Street, close to the centre of the village of West Wickham.

West Wickham is located approximately 12 miles from Cambridge, 6 miles from Haverhill, 10 miles from Saffron Walden and 5.5 miles from the A11 which links Norwich to London, via Newmarket and Thetford.

Barn 1, benefits from permission to be converted into a 4/5-bedroom dwelling with accommodation as follows: -

Ground Floor: Entrance Hall, WC, Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen/Breakfast, Utility & Plant Rooms, Family Bathroom, Bedroom 3 with Ensuite Bathroom and wardrobe, Bedroom 4, and Bedroom 5/Study.

Mezzanine 1: Landing, Bedroom 1 with En-suite Bathroom, and wardrobe.

Mezzanine 2: Bedroom 2 with En-suite Bathroom.

Approximate Gross Internal Floor Area once developed - 280 m2

Barn 2, benefits from permission to be converted into a smaller 3-bedroom dwelling with accommodation as follows: -

Ground Floor: Entrance Hall, Family Bathroom, Living Room, Kitchen/Dining Room, Bedroom 1 with En-suite, and Bedroom 2.

First Floor: Bedroom 3 and Shower Room.

Approximate Gross Internal Floor Area once developed - 133 m2

The new shared entrance will run through the middle of the site, leading to the retained buildings and dwellings forming Platts Farm to
the rear.

Two parking spaces are allocated for each barn with Barn 1 also benefitting from a double cart lodge and store; partly retained from the
existing cart lodge.

Both properties are to have fenced gardens to the front and rear of the barns.

Full Planning Permission was granted by South Cambridgeshire District Council on the 9th August 2022 for the alteration and conversion
of barns to form 2 No. dwellings, erection of cart shed garage and formation of a new access on to the High Street. Reference Number 22/01039/FUL. A copy of the Planning Permission can be viewed on the Council's website link:

Further details are also available from the Vendor's Agent upon request.

A new access and track will need to be installed as part of the conversion. The Purchaser is to install the access track past the sale
boundary, as per the Planning Permission.

The Vendor will be retaining a Right of Way over the existing access, subject to a 'lift and shift' clause for when the new access is built, for all purposes at all times to allow access to their retained property to the rear of the site.

The Purchaser will need to liaise with the relevant service provider to relocate a telegraph pole to install the new access.

Prospective Purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries with the relevant service providers for separate services to be connected to the permitted development.

The Purchaser is expected to install services from A-B, shown on the attached plan, to allow for the Vendor to install services to their
retained property in replace of the services that currently run through the Barns.

The land is sold subject to and with the benefit of all existing rights, including rights of way, whether public or private, light, support,
drainage, water and electricity supplies and other rights, easements, quasi-easements and all wayleaves whether referred to or not in these particulars.

As stated above, the property will be sold subject to a right of way from the public highway to the rear of the site for all purposes at all times, over the area hatched brown. This right of way will be subject to a 'lift and shift' clause to allow the Vendor to move the right of way when the existing access and track is replaced with the permitted access and track.

The property is offered for sale by Private Treaty with vacant possession on completion.

The property is for sale as a whole but offers for each Barn may be considered.

Exchange of Contracts to take place 28 days after receipt by the Purchaser's Solicitor of the draft contract and completion will be 28
days after exchange or earlier by agreement. A 10% deposit will be payable on Exchange of Contracts.

In accordance with the most recent Anti Money Laundering Legislation, Buyers will be required to provide proof of identity and address to the Selling Agent once an offer has been submitted and accepted (subject to contract) prior to Solicitors being instructed.
