A fantastically located farmhouse and buildings in need of renovation
Caldecote Farm and courtyard of traditional buildings is located at the end of a long private drive in a secluded location. First time on the market in over 60 years, this farmhouse and outbuildings are in need of extensive renovation with development potential. EPC Rating: G
Built in the 17th century and constructed of local Hornton stone and brick, the main house sits in a fantastic position within its land. The courtyard provides a mixture of traditional stone and agricultural buildings which are located to the rear of the property.
A lake has been recently landscaped to the rear which enhances the amenity value of the property and will provide a haven for wildlife.
The house has not been lived in for a number of years and will be subject to restoration works providing a fantastic development opportunity for conversion into a country house or a new build using salvage materials. Alternatively, the buildings could be developed to create a hamlet of five or so country properties each with their own access and paddock, subject to planning permission/permitted development rights.
The property is not listed and will not be at risk of being so, as English Heritage have reviewed the property and decided not to list it.
The house currently provides 3,660 sq ft of living space with cart barn and outbuildings close by and a range of traditional farm buildings and storage to the west of house providing 8,429 sq ft, giving a total of 12,089 sq ft, and nissen hut.
Plans have been drawn up the extension and re-order of the house and courtyard but no planning permission has been sought.
The land and small wood surround the house and outbuildings, including the lake to the rear. Further land includes 4 paddocks.
