Planning Consent for Conversion
Main Dwelling and Detached Annexe
Car Port Garage
Large Garden with Pole Barn
An excellent development opportunity to convert an extensive range of redundant farm barns into residential use and create a superb new dwelling with further annexed dwelling and additional home office/studio. Planning permission was granted on 14th October 2022 by Wiltshire Council under reference PL/2022/02342/FUL (all plans and documents available on the Wiltshire Council website) to 'change of use: redundant agricultural barns to residential use with alterations'.
The redundant barns are arranged in an 'L shape' and occupy a private position at the former Little Smithcot Farm enjoying a south facing aspect onto a large yard with a further small paddock area to the east. Mainly built of brick under slate and tin roofs, the consent permits the conversion of the existing three barns and stables plus an additional new building replacing the existing timber stables.
Barn 1 as depicted in the Block Plan will form the main residence, creating a three bedroom, two bathroom single storey dwelling with living room and kitchen/family room.
Barn 2 allows for its conversion into a detached annexe with living room, kitchen, one bedroom with en suite and a second bathroom. A further detached barn has consent to convert to home office/gym with a new extension to create a garage.
There is ample parking within the existing yard which will be landscaped to create a garden area. A useful pole barn is situated to one corner. To the east is a further area of land which is included and could be used as a small paddock.
