After successfully helping clients to realise the potential of their assets YoungsRPS bring two traditional Yorkshire Dales barns to the market.
As YoungsRPS, Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants, bring to the market two unique barn developments in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Paul McGee Rural Chartered Surveyor, shares his experience on the opportunities for re-purposing an old barn. However, as Paul explains, landowners should seek advice on what can be a complex process with many pitfalls along the way:
“There are dis-used barns and buildings across the Dales and other rural locations for which planning permission could be obtained for unique developments, with obvious financial benefits to their owners, but the right advice is crucial to assess feasibility and increase chances of success.
“Securing planning permission to develop a barn in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, is not a simple task. There will be many potential obstacles and issues to overcome, so preparation is key.”
Here Paul provides some advice on the things that need to be taken into account when considering such a project and to maximise chances of planning success.
Paul adds: “Once you have taken all of these considerations into account this will make the process simpler and the chances of success will be greater.”
YoungRPS offer an end-to-end service for the development of rural properties including assessing buildings for its suitability for change of use, designing the proposed development to replace what exists, supporting the client through the complex planning process and once approved, marketing the approved property.
YoungsRPS are currently selling two barns in the Yorkshire Dales National Park ready for conversion. These barns are on estates managed by Paul, who identified the potential opportunity to “add value” through obtaining planning consent and who has carefully seen the process through from start to finish.
The two traditional barns each have planning permission for conversion to three-bedroom local occupancy dwellings or holiday lets. Manor Farm Barn (once part of Manor Farm, located in the prestigious hamlet of Thorlby close to Skipton,) is the larger of the two at almost 200 square metres GIA and is being offered at a guide price of £190,000. Tom’s Barn at Appersett near Hawes, named after a local man Tom Dinsdale, sits in a 1,200 square metres plot and is being offered at a guide price of £100,000.
