FOR SALE R1092 - 2 Building Plots within Roecrofts Farm, Ulnes Walton Lane, Ulnes Walton, Leyland, PR26 8LT


Two Building Plots within the grounds of Roecrofts Farm

Each plot is 0.26 acres (0.11 hectares) 

Roecrofts Farm is a Grade II Listed farmhouse 

Tranquil rural setting

Potential for erection of superior quality individual residences

Exciting opportunity to be part of an exclusive development

Offers invited over: £250,000 for Plot 2
Offers invited over: £285,000 for Plot 6



The plots are within the grounds of an impressive and imposing farmhouse which dates back to the 17th Century which, alongwith the outbuildings, enjoys a tranquil setting surrounded by rolling meadows washed over as Green Belt.

Permission has been obtained to redevelop the site to create an exclusive and exciting scheme of five residential dwellings by utilising the outbuildings to the farmhouse (Plot 2), converting the existing barn into two units and erection of two new build detached houses of which Plot 6 is one.

Other than the plots offered, the remaining farmhouse, barn and plot are to be retained by members of the family who are to embark upon a programme of restoration and conversion.

Plot 2 has consent for a detached bungalow utilising the existing outbuildings to the farmhouse and provides potential for erecting a spacious, detached bungalow which could be increased in size, than shown on the illustrated plans approved and up to approximately 1,150 sq ft (107 sq m) internally utilising the volume devoted to the garage. With imaginative design, the accommodation could be orientated to take advantage of the attractive, open aspects to the south and west and incorporate provision for enlargement when construction has reached an advanced stage under the Permitted Development Rights.

At present the plot is occupied by Christmas Trees which will be cleared by the family prior to completion of the sale.

Plot 6 provides potential for erecting a substantial, superior quality detached residence possibly up to 2,160 sq ft (201 sq m) internally to provide five bedrooms again utilising the volume attributable to the garage and which could be erected at a later date under Permitted Development Rights. The plot will overlook open fields to north and west.

Both plots are on the permimeter of the scheme and will enjoy expansive open aspects.
