Location & Description
Set in the heart of the beautiful and unspoilt countryside of South Worcestershire, the quiet village of Bricklehampton enjoys a convenient location less than four miles from the well served and busy riverside market town of Pershore, which lies on the banks of the River Avon. Here there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, public houses and places to eat out. The town is well known for its main landmark, Pershore Abbey and is only a few minutes' walk from The Avon itself, generally regarded as one of England's most beautiful rivers. It is well placed for fast access to neighbouring centres including Evesham (six miles), Upton upon Severn (six miles) and Birmingham (twenty five miles). Junction 7 of the M5 motorway and Junction 1 of the M50 are within easy driving distance and there is also a mainline railway station (in Pershore) with links to London Paddington, Worcester and further afield. Also within easy reach and for those who enjoy the outdoor life, is the Vale of Evesham, the Malvern Hills, the Cotswolds, the Severn Valley and nearby Bredon Hill which is virtually on the doorstep!
Bredon View Barn is situated on the outskirts of Bricklehampton and is offered with almost four acres of pasture. It currently consists of a redundant double span steel framed agricultural building, which until recently served Bredon View Farm. In June of 2020, Wychavon District Council gave formal notification that the use of this building could be changed to residential. Consent was granted for two alternative proposals, the first for a single dwelling house and the second for a pair of semi-detached homes. Permission was obtained under permitted development rights (Class Q regulations). Detailed planning consent has at this stage not been granted and it will be for interested parties and the successful buyer to carry out their own investigations and research and to submit a formal application after the sale has completed. The current overall gross floor area of the building is generous (approximately 366 square metres - nearly 3,400 square feet). This will give buyers an opportunity to create either one very large single story dwelling or two slightly smaller but still substantial semi-detached bungalows in excess of 1,700 square feet apiece. Perhaps the main bonus of this project is its setting in unspoilt countryside and of course the attraction of almost four acres of pasture thus making the converted homes appealing to a wide audience.
Dual planning consent was granted by Wychavon District Council on 30th June 2020. The first of these consents was for prior approval for the proposed change of use of the building to one dwelling house (Planning Reference 20/00677/GPDQ). The second, granted on 29th June 2020 was for prior approval for the proposed change of use to two dwelling houses (Class C3) (Planning Reference 20/00676/GPDQ). Full details of these applications can be found at www.wychavon.gov.uk/planning/planning-conditions. The selling agents also have plans and drawings that can be emailed upon request.
