Haddockstones Farm, Watergate Road, Markington, HG3 3LA - For Sale


Studio Bedroom | Building Plot / Land

A rare opportunity to purchase an excellent range of former farm buildings and stone barns with Planning Consent to provide a most interesting residential development, situated in delightful rolling countryside. The barns and buildings enjoy a lovely rural setting midway between the spa town of Harrogate and the city of Ripon.

The Planning consents are held under two separate applications; the conversion of the front building and adjacent agricultural building are held under Consent No 16/045180PBR. The consent was granted under Permitted Development Rights. The consent for the adjacent large stone barns is under Planning Consent No 17/00698/FUL. Both Planning consents and plans are available on the Harrogate Borough Council planning website,

The consents provide for the following:

Conversion of the existing building into a two-bedroomed dwelling extending to approximately 96.8 m² (1041.9 sq ft).

Conversion of the existing building into a pair of two-bedroomed semi-detached houses extending to 97.5 m² (1,049.4 sq ft)

Conversion of the existing stone barn into a large four-bedroomed dwelling extending to approximately 317.2 m² (3,418.8 sq ft).

Conversion of the existing single-storey barn into a two-bedroomed single-storey dwelling extending to 122.5 m² (1,318.5 sq ft).

Conversion of the existing stone barn into a large three-bedroomed dwelling extending to 330.7 m² (3,559.6 sq ft).

Total gross internal floor area of all the barns extends to approximately 1,062.2 m² (11,433.6 sq ft).

Any interested parties should be aware that these floor areas have been scaled from the architect's plans and are approximate only. Any interested party should check the measurements of the areas before proceeding with a purchase.

Mains electricity is available nearby.

The water supply is from an existing borehole supply, which will require upgrading to provide water for the new development. In addition to the new units, the current owners of the barns will have a right to continue drawing from this supply, so any buyer should allow for an additional eight units taking water from the borehole.

The buyers will be granted the right to construct a new sewage treatment plant; and in addition to the new units, the buyer should allow for an additional eight units to connect into the new sewage treatment plant. The STP is to be located to the south side of Watergate Road.

Any interested party should make their own enquiries as to the availability and suitability of the electricity supply.

The purchaser will be required to maintain the existing electricity supply to neighbouring properties.

The property may be viewed, strictly by appointment, with the agent. Tel: 01423 562531.
