BEAUTIFUL DETACHED FARMHOUSE FOR RENOVATION
An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a characterful detached farmhouse in need of complete renovation, occupying a substantial plot of approximately 0.6 acres. The property has been in a dilapidated state of repair for many years and now presents a fantastic opportunity to create a superb family home. Many of the stunning original features remain and could be preserved/restored during the course of the renovation.
Berwick Farmhouse has the potential to become one of the most impressive houses in the area and will appeal to builders, developers and self-builders looking to create a one-off family home.
From Hallen Road heading northwest, turn right onto Berwick Lane and proceed along the road for approximately 0.6 miles and Berwick Farm will be on your left-hand side. The property is approached via a newly installed road adjoining Berwick Lane. Upon entering the new road, Berwick Farmhouse can be found immediately on your right-hand side.
The village of Hallen is situated just north of the Bristol city boundary, just 1.5 miles from Henbury and Blaise Castle Estate.
Easy access is provided to the M4/M5 with links to London, South Wales, Birmingham and the South West. The Mall at Cribbs Causeway is also within easy reach by car.
Schools close by include Blaise Primary and Nursery School, St Bede's Catholic College and Blaise High School.
Our internal inspection of the property has been limited due to the current condition of the building. The ground floor includes two generous reception rooms either side of a central hallway, the former kitchen is inaccessible due to this section of the house having collapsed in recent years and the rear extension would have provided additional living accommodation. The first floor is likely to have provided 4-5 bedrooms and a bathroom, although only one bedroom is accessible at the current time. There are also two additional rooms in the roof space with windows to the rear.
STRUCTURAL REPORT -
A full structural report has been commissioned by the current owners, a copy of which will be included within the auction legal pack.
The property sits in a generous plot measuring approximately 0.6 acres and benefits from extensive gardens on three sides. The site is bordered by mature trees on the north-eastern boundary.
A certificate of lawful use was granted for residential use (Class C3) of the property on 7th July 2020 under Application No. P19/15653/CLE.
