Development Opportunity for a 4/5 Bedroom Detached Property

West Midlands -

Full Description:

Unique Business Brokers are please  pleased to be working with the owner of a New Development Opportunity for a 4/5 Bedroom Detached Property.

Planning permission as has been granted for the demolition and new construction of a 4/5 Bedroom Detached property an affluent village near to Bidford-on-Avon, of Marlcliff, Warwickshire.

New Development Opportunity for a 4 5 Bedroom Detached Property in Warwickshire set in 17.32 acres.

General Plan Outline

The existing farmhouse was originally an agricultural building, believed to have been originally built approximately at the turn of the 20th century as a combination of stables, a hayloft or barn and milking parlour.

It was converted into residential accommodation in the late1980s, early 1990s and consists of a main central two storey building, a single storey to the west elevation and attached stable block to the eastern side.

The property sits at the end of a quiet country lane lined with an eclectic arrangement of 26 stone and brick cottages and houses, dating back to the 16th century through to a modern 1960s/ 1970s house, of which seven are Grade II Listed buildings.

Property and Land Description

The building sits well back from the foot of the lane at a distance of over 30m from the boundary line, defined by a farm gate, and the house has a very wide frontage, extending to 34m. Planning permission has been granted to demolish the existing building and stables to construct a replacement 4/ 5 bedroom house and separate garage. 

The design of the new dwelling considers the features of the existing house and has ‘re-created’ some of these, but also draws inspiration from its surroundings and the mixture and character of housing styles in the village. The house currently occupies a south-south-west aspect; the new building has been orientated to a south facing position to optimise solar gain.


The surrounding farmland extends to circa 17.32 acres.

An area of woodland lies to the west, extending to 2.18 acres around the back of a group of stone cottages.

The larger field, of some 8.43 acres, is the last surviving ridge and furrow field in Bidford-on-Avon. It is currently used for hay and the grazing of sheep. However, there is no conservation order in place and therefore this field offers potential for other agricultural/ pasture uses. A public footpath dissects the two main fields following the route of the land drainage ditch. This footpath has been recently secured with post and horse-safe wire fencing. A second unfenced public footpath runs diagonally across this field towards the Cleeve Road.

Further paddocks adjacent to this field extend to 1.63 acres and include a field shelter.

The building is surrounded by gardens totalling 1.14 acres and include a small paddock for occasional grazing.

A newly re-furbished agricultural steel framed barn is situated to the east of the building, measuring 11.8m x 11.3m. This barn benefits from new steel cladding and a new re-enforced elevated concrete floor. This offers opportunities for flexible storage or easy conversion to American barn-style stables.

This really is an amazing opportunity for a developer to make his mark on a top quality stand alone development opportunity in a very well sought after area.
