Property Description:

SITUATION Diptford, a pretty South Hams village with a parish church and primary school, is about five miles from Totnes and three miles from the A38 at Marley Head. The village and its surrounding countryside are in an area of outstanding natural beauty. South Brent, within about three miles, has a useful choice of shops and a post office. Totnes, known as an Elizabethan town but much older with a castle, a wonderful position on the River Dart and a main line railway station (London 3 hours), has a community college, a full range of shops, a weekly market and a wide choice of cultural facilities.

DESCRIPTION Barn A at Lower East Moore Farm is an agricultural building with Class Q planning to be converted into two residential dwellings.
Each semi detached dwelling with consist of four bedrooms on a single level. Planning approval for the residential dwellings has been granted by South Hams District Council ref 2688/21/PDM.

The site comes with 3.75 acres of land with separate rear access, enjoying far reaching views across the South Hams and towards Dartmoor.

It has also been recognised, in the Appeal decision Mansell v Tonbridge and Malling BC [2017] EWCA Civ 1314, that since a Class Q approval has been secured, this is a material planning consideration and can be used as a fall back position for a future application for a replacement dwelling on the site of the barn. This, therefore, means that there is an opportunity for prospective purchasers to submit an application for an architecturally designed dwelling to replace the barn on the site.

Further planning details available upon request.

SERVICES The prospective purchaser will need to provide a new mains connection to supply to residential dwellings.

There is currently a spring on site that provides a small amount of water. This will not be sufficient for the residential dwellings, thus the prospective purchaser will be need to provide a South West Water mains connection or add a borehole as per the neighbouring property. Private drainage will also need to be installed.
