The recreation of this barn offers a truly unique opportunity within the village, with the planning approval sought ensuring that once built, it will blend seamlessly into its immediate environment, where it sits in the courtyard of the attractive Grade II listed Myrtle Farm and barn conversion The Linhay. Using natural materials of stone, slate and timber, the resulting build will be an attractive addition to the village and because of its position, would be extremely well met in the holiday rental market should a buyer wish to take advantage of the excellent income that can be achieved.
There is shared access to the property across the existing courtyard.
Although little remains of the original building, the planning provides for kitchen, dining/sitting room, bathroom and ground floor bedroom and to the first floor, 2 further bedrooms both en-suite. Adjacent to the barn are two parking spaces and accessed from the west of the barn, there is a small secluded courtyard garden. Pathway leads to the front of the property and at the northern end of the barn there is a lovely garden area measuring 2.8m x 2.5m divided into a small lower courtyard with two steps up to a lawned garden.
NB: The planning application is subject to a 106 Agreement, Affordable Housing Contribution of £99,000 of which 50% is payable upon completion of the sale and 50% when the new purchasers move into the property.
Rarely do such opportunities present themselves in this extremely popular coastal village and once built this property would provide a lovely family home/second home and most certainly an excellent holiday let.
