A three-bedroom detached bungalow requiring modernisation within a garden of about 1/3 acre and adjoining paddocks of 1.88 acres including roadside paddock with development potential, subject to planning. Please note the bungalow is subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition.

Bradley is a small tranquil village of great charm set in rich farmland located in beautiful wooded, winding lanes that meander through gentle rolling countryside. A feature of the village is at Moorend, where the road appears to pass through the middle of the cottages known as The Hole in the Wall. The village is located approximately 3 miles east of the market town of Ashbourne and about 11 miles from Derby.

The property is offered for sale as a whole or in three lots.

Lot 1
The detached bungalow sits in gardens of approximately 1/3 acre, with a stunning copper beech tree, and is approached over a tarmac drive off Pinfold Lane to an elevated position. It has the considerable benefit of adjoining paddocks, lying to the side and rear, giving a total area of about 2.27 acres. The bungalow is vacant and offered to the market with no upward chain.

Part of the land abuts Pinfold lane and it is considered this may have development potential for infilling having regard to the planning policy; see General information under planning below. However prospective should make their own enquiries as necessary.

Prospective buyers should note that when planning consent was granted in 1970, occupancy of the bungalow was limited to persons employed in agriculture – please see further information below – and this is acknowledged in the asking price adopted for this lot.

Whilst the accommodation is now in need of updating it does provide convenient and well laid out space. The entrance door leads into the reception hall, with two useful storage cupboards, with the well-proportioned dual aspect living room having a stone fireplace. The kitchen has a range of base and wall mounted units with roll top work surfaces over incorporating a stainless-steel sink and drainer, electric hob, electric oven, extractor fan, an integrated fridge and a Rayburn. The three bedrooms all have wardrobes and are served by a fitted shower room having a double shower cubicle, wash basin set in a vanity unit, and WC.

Outside the property is set in lovely gardens that wrap around the bungalow and are mainly lawned with display borders with a variety of herbaceous perennials and mature shrubs. A good-sized driveway provides plentiful parking and there is space for a garage (subject to relevant permissions).

Agricultural Occupancy Condition
Planning permission was granted for the Bungalow in 1970 by Ashbourne Rural Council under reference ASR/770/17 subject to three conditions, one of which was an agricultural occupancy condition. Condition three states:
"The occupation of the house shall be limited to persons employed, or last employed, locally in agriculture as defined in Section 221(1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1962, or in forestry, and the dependents of such persons".

The council state the reason for the condition was: "Because of its location the site is not considered suitable for residential development not connected with agriculture."

Lot 2
This lot is likely to be of particular interest to developers and self-builders as it provides a range of farm buildings which are considered suitable for conversion to residential use whether using the permitted developments rights under Class Q or by a specific planning application according to the Council’s conversion of farm buildings. The buildings include an extended traditional style brick and tile building, with a loft over part, being the former dairy and parlour with cow standings. There is a further larger range of steel and timber pole barns which provided livestock housing and general fodder and machinery storage.

The land in total extends to about 6.84 acres and a particular feature is the wooded area with pond and the stream dissecting the pastureland to create a wonderful amenity for the property.

Access to the buildings and land is direct from Pinfold Lane from a gate just to the front ( west) of the brick building.

The approximate internal sizes of each building, given in metres, are as follows:

Former dairy, parlour and cow standings, brick and tile section 7.8 x 5.1 metres with loft over part.

Concrete block extensions 5.1 x 3.7, 3.7 x 3.2 and 2.4 x 2.4

The mainly steel and timber pole barns
16.4 x 4.4 with lean to on both sides
To west side 16.4 x 6.7 plus concrete block store 4.0 x 2.5
To east 8.9 x 6.2 and a further building beyond 9.2 x 3.8

Lot 3
This lot has access off Hadley Lane. The land is divided into several fields and is mostly gently sloping to the east.

Where Lot 3 is purchased separately from lot 2, the purchaser of lot 3 will be required to erect and thereafter maintain a cattle and sheep proof fence, between points A and B as marked on the plan, within one month after completion.

General information
Tenure: Freehold with the title being held in two separate registered titles(purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to the tenure via their legal representative).

Services: Mains water and electricity are believed to be connected to the Bungalow and Brick farm buildings but purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to their suitability.

Rights and other matters: The property is sold subject to any rights that may exist whether mentioned in these details or not. There is a footpath crossing Lot 2 in roughly south/north direction. Where the property is sold in lots various rights may need to be reserved and granted for the benefit of a lot.

Infill and Consolidation Villages – Fifth Tier
Bradley, Ednaston, Hognaston, Longford, Osmaston, Roston, Shirley, Yeaveley, Wyaston.
These remaining settlements have a lack of basic facilities to meet day to day requirements. However, there could be scope for very limited development within the physical confines of the settlement where this is limited to infill and consolidation of the existing built framework; or where there are opportunities for the redevelopment of brownfield sites on the edge of settlements which will result in a positive environmental improvement, or where development constitutes exception sites for affordable housing (Policy HC5).
