Plas Newydd Farm dates to the 1800’s and comprises a particularly attractive stone-built farmhouse along with an attached barn. The property was formerly in the ownership of the neighbouring Soughton Estate, functioning as a working farmstead.
The property now benefits from residential planning consent for the conversion of the adjoining agricultural building into a residential dwelling. The property sits in formal gardens along with undulating agricultural land, laid to permanent pasture, in all extending to approximately 2.89 acres.
Plas Newydd Farmhouse and Attached Barn
The farmhouse itself has a particularly striking front elevation of dressed local stone under slate roofing. The accommodation briefly comprises a central reception hall, sitting room, lounge, dining room, breakfast kitchen with cast iron woodburning stove, utility room, WC and rear porch. To the first floor is a spacious landing with superb southerly views over the property’s grounds, four double bedrooms, one having an adjoining room which will form part of the neighbouring barn conversion. Also to the first floor is a large family bathroom with white three-piece suite. The farmhouse itself extends to approximately 222 sqm (2,385 sqft).
Adjoining the northern elevation of the house is an agricultural building with planning consent for conversion into a self-contained residential dwelling, extending to approximately 130 sqm (1399 sqft). The intended accommodation comprises a central reception hall, open plan dining kitchen, living room, study and WC. Internal and external steps lead to the first floor giving access to two double bedrooms, a third single bedroom and two bath/shower rooms. Both farmhouse and barn will benefit from large gardens in addition to agricultural land, in all extending to approximately 2.89 acres. The farmhouse benefits from the use of an existing outbuilding which could be converted to create a garage and an additional detached building will provide a double garage with integral storeroom for the barn conversion.
Planning approval was granted under application reference 061464 by Flintshire County Council on 30 December 2020 for the conversion of the attached barn into a residential dwelling and change of use of land to residential.
