Finding the right place

Single Building Plot
Guide Price £300,000
A detailed planning consent has been granted for the conversion of an existing barn to a three bedroom detached single storey dwelling in a desirable village location. The plot will sit in a quiet position in an elevated location in approximately quarter of an acre of land, with spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. There is a further one acre of land available by separate negotiation. The new dwelling will have a hall, utility, kitchen, living and dining area, three bedrooms, one en-suite and one family bathroom. The gross external area of the barn conversion will be approximately 1230 sq.ft. The existing barn is described in the structural survey as a permanent and substantial structure. The architectural drawings indicate a contemporary designed dwelling re-clad with corrugated metal sheeting to the walls and roof and a block-work base covered with a light coloured render. The barn will have a metal fascia, windows and door-frames and roof-lights. Although not a like for like comparison, the dwelling known as the Tin House, an architectural award- winning dwelling on Scotland’s Isle of Skye, shows the potential of a building like this. The plot is to the west of the village, has its own existing access and parking for three vehicles and is screened from the road by mature trees.
The Site
The plot is situated within the Green Belt and open countryside. It is approximately quarter of an acre with a further one acre available by separate negotiation. A structural survey, bio-diversity report, tree report and tree protection plan are in place. There is some cement cladding and asbestos to remove from the existing structure
The Area
The village sits on higher ground in a landscape of small valleys, open fields and woods some 5 miles from Poole with a population exceeding 3000 residents. The village has two pubs, a cricket and football club, a Grade 1 Listed 13th century church and both the primary school and the secondary school are rated as Good by Ofsted. There are two railway stations less than 4 miles from the plot, on the London to Weymouth Line, offering a regular service to London Waterloo. Independent education is available at Poole Grammar School and Parkstone Grammar School and much of Bournemouth University is based in Poole. Poole is a large coastal town 21 miles east of Dorchester and with a population approaching 150,000 people. Poole Harbour is one of the largest centres for sailing in the U.K. and Poole Park, adjacent to the harbour, is some 109 acres offering water-sports, children’s play areas and a cricket club in its grounds. The town also has one of Britain’s busiest ports. The Lighthouse Arts Centre has a concert hall, art galleries, a theatre and many other cultural amenities. As well as being a major tourist destination, with Blue Flag beaches at Sandbanks and Bournemouth, the town also has some major employers. Barclays Bank regional H.Q. is based in Poole, Siemens are in the town and Sunseeker Yachts employ some 1800 people in the town. Merlin Entertainments and the retailers Lush and Animal are also based in Poole. There are of course many shops and a shopping centre and supermarkets include Sainsburys, Tesco, Waitrose and Asda.
The plot has access to all electricity and water but will require a septic tank or package treatment plant for sewerage. We would advise interested parties to make their own enquires to clarify this prior to purchase.
