Perfect for most would be my answer to the question of the homes location, so too would it be of the question of what the home offers with
its size, outbuildings and land, not to mention the views.
If asked if the home is ready to move in to? My answer would be - it is habitable, but there is a good deal of work needed to modernise it and
make it comfortable by today?s standards. If asked if the barns have potential to convert - The fast and simple answer is yes (subject to planning permission). In droves. This is, assuming you want it for a residential or holiday conversion. If you want the barns simply for livestock, they are dry and in ready to use condition requiring little or no
immediate expenditure - in my opinion.
This then leaves the question of the house itself. I would not like to guess what the cost of renovation would be, as it depends on how much one
wants to do. I would anticipate the buyer would want a budget a good deal more than the agreed price to purchase in order to adapt the home and the Barns (if required). We have rough drawings for a holiday conversion to create a four bedroom and a three bedroom cottage which could yield (if built) an income of upto £40,000 per annum.
The lifestyle offered here would range from small holding to perhaps two substantial dwellings, each with large gardens and amazing views, with everything (equestrian, classic car storage/sales, DIY livery, horse hotel, holiday complex with multiple lets and income) in-between. What is
probable is that the opportunity to purchase it again will not come around for another 50 years. This is a forever home offering 9 out 10 boxes
ticked in most clients search criteria. Whatever you want it for, it has it, or the potential to make it.
The only way to know if you want to buy it, is to view it.
