Positioned in a semi-rural location with open fields to front and rear, this former agricultural barn/building has obtained permitted development permission for change of use to form 3 contemporary dwellings with a ground floor of approx. 100 sq m per unit. From the drawings accompanying the application full use is made of the southerly aspect with large amount of glazing allowing plenty of natural light. The drawings show each property offering large double height open plan living kitchen dining area, utility with wc, bedroom and en-suite. To the first floor the plans show two further bedrooms with wardrobes and en-suites. On assumption this first floor is approx. one-third of the ground floor this gives a total internal living space of approx. 133 sq m (1431 sq ft) plus the void. The properties will have two parking spaces for each unit.
Rutland District Council granted Class Q permitted development under ref APP/A2470/W/19/3221217 for change of use from a barn to three dwellings, subject to conditions which was granted on the 18th July 2019. The planning application was made by a highly regarded local architect, Ross Thain of Stamford on behalf of the vendor. Documents relating to the permission can be downloaded from the Rutland District Council Planning Portal including drawings and the planning statement.
