Lot 2 - Bushes Farm, Earlswood, Chepstow, Monmouthshire
Guide Price: £390,000
Bushes Bungalow comprises a detached three-bedroom bungalow situated centrally at Bushes Farm between the Farmhouse and Bushes Barn. The bungalow was constructed in the late 1970’s with a pitched concrete tiled roof over rendered/reconstituted stone elevations. The bungalow has not been occupied in recent years and requires renovation and refurbishment.
The existing accommodation provides for an entrance hallway providing access to separate kitchen, dining, utility and sitting rooms along with three bedrooms and a bathroom. The existing accommodation is understood to extend to approximately 95.7 Sq.m (1,030 Sq.ft). There are stunning views across open countryside to Wentwood Forest.
The bungalow was subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition (AOC) upon planning originally being granted and this was amended recently under Planning Reference DM/2020/00881, to remove this planning condition and replace it with the modern Rural Enterprise (TAN 6) occupancy condition, permitting occupiers to be ‘solely, or mainly working or last working on a rural enterprise in the locality’.
An Overage Clause will be included in the sale contract which will capture 30% uplift in value, for any future planning permission granted for a replacement dwelling or any extension that increases the existing sq. ft of accommodation, or if the Rural Enterprise Occupancy is removed. The Overage will run for a period of 35 years.
Bushes Barn is an existing single storey stone structure situated to the south of the Bushes Bungalow. The barn benefits from planning permission (Planning Reference DM/2018/01222) for conversion to a two-bedroom dwelling and the construction of a new detached double garage. There is no S.106 affordable housing commuted sum payable in respect of this planning application.
The proposed accommodation comprises entrance hall with cloakroom along with kitchen & dining room, sitting room and two double bedrooms with a bathroom & shower ensuite respectively serving the bedrooms. The new detached double building is proposed to be finished with a natural slate roof & timber clad elevation, along with two external parking spaces within the overall landscaping plan.
The barn offers excellent potential to create a stunning rural barn conversion with beautiful views towards Wentwood Forest.
Bushes Bungalow & Bushes Barn are offered together as Lot 2 (see Sale Plan on rear cover) which comprises of 3.22 acres. Further land may be available by separate negotiation.
