A Fine Freehold Development Opportunity Enjoying A Wonderful Rural Setting In A Sought After Location On The Herefordshire/Worcestershire Border Benefitting From An Extant Planning Consent For The Conversion Of A Detached Timber Dutch Barn.


The Threshing Barn is situated in the small rural parish community of Mathon, which is located on the lower Western slopes of the Malvern Hills on the Herefordshire/Worcestershire border. Mathon is within striking distance of the very popular and sought after village of Colwall, which offers a good range of local facilities including shops, post office and pharmacy, schools, a doctor's surgery, churches, hotel and public houses. Colwall also has the benefit of a mainline railway with direct services to Birmingham New Street, Oxford and London Paddington. The centre of Great Malvern is approximately 4 miles distant, which offers a further range of amenities including Waitrose Supermarket and the famous Malvern Theatre and Cinema Complex. The thriving and expanding town of Ledbury is approximately 7 miles distant and has a range of local facilities and amenities and offers good transport links to the cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Cheltenham.


The Threshing Barn is an L-shaped timber Dutch barn extending to approximately 3,800 sq ft and forms part of a small courtyard development comprising three barns, two of which have already been converted into residential dwellings. The Threshing Barn offers an exciting opportunity to create a contemporary home and benefits from an extant planning consent for conversion into two residential dwellings. However, due to a covenant restriction, a revised planning application will need to be submitted for conversion into one single dwelling.

A shared driveway, which also serves the neighbouring property Moat Farm, provides access to the development and leads to a designated parking area for The Threshing Barn. A prospective purchaser will be responsible for contributing towards the repair and maintenance of the driveway and any other common parts. Outside, the barn enjoys a large area of garden extending to approximately 0.4 OF AN ACRE.
