The Elms comprises a period farmhouse requiring modernisation set within a sought-after village along with an attractive range of traditional buildings. The house has accommodation over three floors and offers two large reception rooms, a kitchen with adjoining breakfast room, and five bedrooms, including the attic rooms (head height partially restricted), with two bath/shower rooms. The buildings and house are set within a large plot of about 0.92 acres. There is the opportunity to purchase about 4.56 acres of river meadows by separate negotiation which are located opposite The Elms off Church Lane – shown edged blue on the enclosed site plan. This land offers a great opportunity to acquire a property with land for use as a smallholding or simply to have an area of land to enjoy. The buildings have great potential and a single storey barn has permission to convert to residential use and would offer accommodation of about 1,175 sq ft (gross internal). A two storey barn extends to about 1,980 sq ft and has previously been used as garaging, workshop, and home office space on the first floor. There is also permission to develop two new-build houses within the grounds which broadens the scope of the property – please see paragraph below regarding access rights.
Planning permission under reference DMPA/2020/0687 was approved by South Derbyshire District Council on 10th August 2020 to develop:
• Four bedroom detached new build house extending to circa 2013 sq ft (GIA) and garaging
• Four bedroom detached new build house extending to circa 1830 sq ft (GIA) and garaging
• Three bedroom detached barn conversion extending to circa 1175 sq ft (GIA) and garaging
• Retain the farmhouse and renovate.
The Elms has rights to use an access route leading from the northern boundary onto Chapel Lane if Church Lane was to become impassable due to flood water. Potential purchasers are to take independent advice as to whether these rights could be utilised by properties developed on The Elms. Further details available from Fisher German.
