Bradbury Barn

Bradbury Barn is a traditional stone barn under a slate roof which falls within the curtilage of the neighbouring cottages in a courtyard setting, which is a former farmhouse dating back to the 17th Century. The barn benefits from a lean-to structure which will form a car port.

The barn is currently accessed from the driveway of 2 Bradbury Cottage but there is the potential to create its own access from the access for the field subject to planning.

The barn extends to approximately 115m2 and is set within approximately 3.3 acres as highlighted as green on the enclosed barn. The barn and grounds are surrounded by farmland. The paddock will be sown to grass; the paddock benefits from a natural boundary with a small woodland copse located on the north western boundary. With splendid countryside views, the barn offers a wonderful opportunity to build a stunning home.
