The barns and land at Grange Farm are located a little over a mile to the west of the attractive village of Netherseal, approximately two miles south east of Overseal and seven miles south west of Ashby de la Zouch. Netherseal is a sought-after village with a good range of amenities including a village shop, Netherseal St Peter's CE Primary School and two pubs. Ashby de la Zouch offers a range of shops, pubs, playing fields and schooling. Junction 11 of the M42/A42 is less than four miles away and provides an excellent road link to the M1, M6 and A50 giving access to Derby, Nottingham, Birmingham, Leicester and Stoke on Trent. East Midlands Airport is located approximately 20 miles north and Tamworth station is about eight miles to the south and provides a fast service into London.

Permission has been approved for an exciting development scheme to create two independent detached dwellings in an attractive rural setting. The barns will be accessed via a 150 metre long driveway, leading off Sandy Lane, which provides an attractive approach running through grassland. The barns will have far reaching rural views, particularly from their western elevations and will look over approximately two acres of grassland which are included within the sale.

Permission was granted via prior approval under DMPN/2020/0413 on 20th November 2020 by South Derbyshire District Council. The permission requires demolition of part of the range of buildings and then conversion of two steel framed barns to create an extensive two bedroom barn conversion of 1,947 sq ft and a three bedroom barn conversion of 1,893 sq ft (gross internal areas - GIA). It might be possible to boost the floor areas of either barn, for example that of Barn 2 to at least 2,566 sq ft if a mezzanine floor area were to be added. We understand that planning permission wouldn't be required to add this if it was carried out once the barn had been converted as per the current plans, but a new application would be required if the intention was to include this as part of the initial conversion works.

It could be that the site is developed as two independent residential units for sale to subsequent owner occupiers once they are developed, but the setting and potential would also suit a family buyer looking to create a principal home with a smaller secondary dwelling for dependant relatives. A reconfiguration of the scheme might allow a larger principal dwelling of say at least four or five bedrooms to be created along with an annexe of one or two bedrooms.

Additional land is available which would appeal to those buyers looking to create an equestrian property or small holding, or those who simply want their own space to enjoy. Up to an additional 41.69 acres or so are available and the vendors will consider the sale of a small additional area or the whole area. They would be open to discussing variations to the boundaries set out edged red on the sale plan, although reserve the right to have the final decision on this.

Potential purchasers should liaise directly with the local planning authority regarding any proposed changes to the current approved permission and use of the site including reconfiguration of the dwellings and use of the property for anything other than agriculture. Fisher German's planning team handled the application and may be able to assist with some queries but ultimately potential purchasers should rely on independent advice and their own investigations regarding any deviation from the current approved scheme under DMPN/2020/0413.

Rights of way, wayleaves and easements
Rights of way for all purposes will need to be retained over an initial portion of the driveway (approximately 15 metres is suggested) if the land edged blue is sold separately from the area edged red.

A public footpath crosses the southern section of the land. The property is sold subject to all other rights of way, wayleaves and easements whether or not they are defined in this brochure.

Overage clause
The property is sold subject to an overage clause whereby 30% of any uplift in value upon implementation or sale following the grant of planning permission and successive grants of planning permission for uses other than agriculture and equestrian use will be payable to the vendor. The clause is to run for a period of 50 years. The development of up to two residential units in total on the area edged red will not trigger overage. Development of residential units on the area edged blue will trigger overage.

Basic Payment scheme
The land is registered on the Rural Land Register and is eligible to receive entitlement payments. The payment from the current scheme year will be retained by the current tenant who owns the entitlements. These entitlements are not included within the sale - some entitlements may be available separately.

Cross Compliance
The purchasers will be responsible for cross compliance following completion for the remainder of the scheme year. The purchasers will indemnify the vendor against any non-compliance which results in any penalty or reduction.

Environmental schemes
The land is not subject to any agri-environmental stewardship schemes.

Should any sale or any other part of the farm or any right attached to it become a chargeable supplier to the purposes of VAT, such tax will be payable by the purchasers in addition to the contract price.

Sporting rights and mineral rights
Where owned, the sporting and mineral rights on the land are included.

Tenure and possession
The property is offered for sale by private treaty. It is available as a whole or the barns, yards and an area of grazing, edged red on the sale plan, may be purchased on its own. Alternatively, the purchaser of the area edged red may purchase additional land by separate negotiation. The freehold of the property is to be sold with vacant possession on completion.

Strict care and attention must be taken when viewing the property and it is advised that children do not attend site. Please close all gates on entering and vacating and be aware of stock in fields.

Plans, schedules and boundaries
The plans and schedules within these particulars are based on Ordinance Survey data and are provided for reference only. They are believed to be correct but accuracy is not guaranteed. The purchaser shall be deemed to have full knowledge of all boundaries and the extent of ownership. Neither the vendors nor the vendor's agents will be responsible for defining the boundaries or the ownership thereof.

Water and electricity run to the property. Potential purchasers are to make their own enquiries with the service providers regarding the potential connection to the proposed dwellings.
