Placed on Green Belt, a collection of relatively intact agricultural buildings considered to be of notable historic interest. Placed between Hopwood and Alvechurch, with planning permission for sympathetic conversion to four dwellings. A major attraction is the none development caveat to surrounding fields, for nature conservation and to protect the open views. The properties are approached via Stone House Lane, where an arch leads you into a large courtyard next to the farm house. The conversion plans briefly comprise:
Building A: Fronts the lane (two storey dairy, pens and with storage rooms above and single storey barns attached). The planned layout comprises: Living area, kitchen/diner, utility, office, storage, bedroom four and en-suite bathroom. The first floor will contain a master bedroom with en-suite, bedrooms two and three using a Jack and Jill bathroom. It is planned that the arch way will be glazed on both sides and contain a grand staircase rising to the upper floors.
Building B: A large cow shed with bat loft above. The majority is proposed as a two storey home containing a living room, bathroom, bedroom two and stairs leading from a dressing room to a further bedroom. The single storey barns between this and building A, will give access to the kitchen/diner, utility and w.c.
Building C: Will be converted to preserve the striking wood work of this French barn, with a floor added internally to provide an open plan living space/kitchen/diner, with access to a utility and w.c. Within the small brick barn to front. The upper floor will be given over to three bedrooms, an en-suite and Jack and Jill bathroom.
Building D: The tractor shed. To provide a detached two storey building, creating space for an open plan kitchen/dining/living room with w.c. Off. Upstairs will contain two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The courtyard will be given over to parking, accessed from the rear of the development when the low-level barns between buildings C and D are demolished. Further parking will be provided behind this and gardens will be created for each dwelling. The gated entrance beyond the present structures in Stone House Lane will become the main entrance, beyond which, several large sheds will be removed.
The location will appeal to professional purchasers seeking a rural setting with nearby village facilities, as well as excellent commuter routes via the M42 motorway.
Planning permission was granted in January 2020 and has three years from this date to initiate the changes. There is a 14 page document available from our office, containing further detailed information covering all necessary guide lines for the transformation.
