A truly exciting and rare opportunity to create your dream home in the country. Being sold is a standalone Dutch style barn with class Q planning permission for conversion and a four acre paddock via separate negotiation, which adjoins the barn at the side and rear. The latter is an excellent field ideal for equestrian purposes and animal husbandry, enjoying a largely flat orientation and bordered by delightful surrounding countryside. The barn itself is extensive in size and once converted will offer a huge amount of living accommodation over two floors totalling well in excess of 3,000 square feet.

Please contact the agent to discuss the potential options of purchasing the land and barn separately.


The subject property enjoys ease of access from the A456 via a shared driveway which services this and two other properties.

The proposed conversion will feature a parking and turning area conveniently located to the front of the barn, whilst at the rear of the property will be a patio area with views of the grounds and countryside beyond.

Internally, the proposed layout will feature an extensive range of versatile accommodation which will offer substantial open-plan living space complimented by 4/5 bedrooms and multiple bathrooms across the two floors. There will be a separate study/snug/family room on the ground floor, along with a separate utility room and WC. The first floor master bedroom is designed to also incorporate a dressing room.

Upton entering the property via the main front door one will be greeted by an impressive reception hall with stairs rising to the first floor and doors leading to the living space, family kitchen area, study and ground floor guest bedroom suite. The extensive living room will flow nicely on to the rear grounds and will no doubt benefit from nice views across the field to nearby countryside. The living room is designed to be open plan on to the adjoining dining kitchen which in turn will provide access to a separate utility room nicely tucked away.

Nicely tucked away from the rest of the living space will be a cosy study also ideal as a family TV room or snug, and next door to that is a ground floor fifth bedroom great for guests as it comes complete with en suite shower room facilities. A downstairs cloakroom/WC off the hallway will also feature.

On the first floor will be four bedrooms, including an expansive master bedroom which has been designed to encompass en suite facilities and also a useful dressing area. Also on this floor will be the family bathroom. This upper floor will benefit from great views of the surrounding area, taking in rolling fields and wooded valleys.

The outside space will be a hugely important part of this property, as detached barns with multiple acres suitable for horses and livestock are a rare commodity. The adjoining field will appeal to those wishing to pursue this country lifestyle, especially with the close proximity of nearby bridleways and the Wyre Forest. The extensive grounds will also be great for purchasers simply wanting space around them and the seclusion that comes with it.

Agents note
The land is available via separate negotiation to the barn, please enquire for more information.

If the land is purchased separately, there will be a right of way on the north side of the barn for access to the field.

Council tax band - TBC.

Administration Fee - refundable on exchange

An administration fee, refundable on exchange, is payable prior to the issue of the Memorandum of Sale and after which the property may be marked as Sold Subject to Contract. The fee will be reimbursed upon the successful Exchange of Contracts.

The fee will be retained by Andrew Grant in the event that you the buyer withdraws from the purchase or does not Exchange within 6 months of the fee being received other than for one or more of the following reasons:

1. Any significant material issues highlighted in a survey that were not evident or drawn to the attention of you the buyer prior to the Memorandum of Sale being issued.
2. Serious and material defect in the seller’s legal title.
3. Local search revealing a matter that has a material adverse effect on the market value of the property that was previously undeclared and not in the public domain.
4. The vendor withdrawing the property from sale.

The administration fee levels are as follows:
an agreed offer under £500,000 will be £750 inclusive of vat
an agreed offer between £500,000 and £1,000,000 will be £2,000 inclusive of vat
all agreed offers over £1,000,000 will be £3,000 inclusive of vat

The administration fee is payable upon acceptance by the vendor of an offer from a buyer and a positive completion of an assessment of the buyer’s financial status and ability to proceed.
Should a buyer’s financial position regarding the funding of the property prove to be fundamentally different from that declared by the buyer when the Memorandum of Sale was completed, then the Vendor has the right to withdraw from the sale and the administration fee retained. For example, where the buyer declares themselves as a cash buyer but are in fact relying on an unsecured sale of their property.

Once the administration fee has been paid, any renegotiation of the price stated in the memorandum of sale for any reason other than those covered in points 1 to 3 above will lead to the reservation fee being retained. A further fee will be levied on any subsequent reduced offer that is accepted by the vendor. This further fee will be subject to the same conditions that prevail for all administration fees outlined above.
