A BARN with planning permission to become a house and with more than six acres of land is up for sale in Herefordshire.

The barn, which has planning permission for a change of use from an agricultural building to a home, is on the market with agents Sunderlands

It is set within approximately 6.32 acres of land at Newton St Margarets.

The agents said the barn offers "the opportunity to create a stunning home", offering "extensive accommodation" including two large downstairs reception rooms, an open-plan kitchen and dining area, and a "generous" entrance hall.

It would also offer four bedrooms with one ensuite and a further family bathroom, the agents said.


A second attached barn would provide a large covered outside area, garaging, and a large office space with two "exceptional" storage spaces upstairs. 

A planning, design, and access statement submitted to Herefordshire Council's planning department ahead of permission being granted said the "predominantly enclosed" barn is built of a robust structural steel frame and is currently redundant. 

Its existing cladding, which the statement said is in good order, will be retained in any conversion, with insulation applied internally.

Permission was granted for the conversion by Herefordshire planners in 2023.

Sunderlands said the barn will be sold freehold with vacant possession on completion.

The property will be sold by informal tender, unless previously sold, with tenders to be received by Sunderlands in Hay-on-Wye by noon on Wednesday, May 15.
