The property offered for sale consists of two historic barns, which are both Grade II listed. Barn 1 comprises a large barn aligned north-south along the western boundary of the site with Water Lane, while a second large barn (Barn 2), referred to as the Great Barn' extends east from the north end of Barn 1. A small narrow granary range extends southwards from the
centre of Barn 2, where it is attached by a short section of red brick wall. Included within the site are an existing Dutch Barn and outbuilding which are to be demolished as part of the proposed development of the site. The land and property offered for sale is shown edged red on the site location plan for identification purposes only. The land outlined in blue is owned by the vendor and comprises a former farm yard. The vendor is in the process of considering a quality re-development of the
site subject to planning. Further information available upon request.
