Full description

Location
Whinney Royd Barn enjoys a quiet backwater position on the eastern edge of the Shibden Valley close to Northowram, conveniently located between the conurbations of Halifax, Bradford and Brighouse. Northowram offers a useful range of services including a post office, two primary schools, shops,pubs and restaurants with the larger town of Halifax just 3 miles to the south providing a wider range of services and access to the M62 motorway.

Description
Enjoying a delightful courtyard setting bordering open countryside this substantial stone barn represents an increasingly rare development opportunity, being one of the last remaining unconverted barns in the locality. The current planning permission approves conversion to a total of three separate dwellings, two three bedroom and a four bedroom unit. Alternatively, the scheme could be reduced in density to provide two larger dwellings or perhaps even a single substantial residence, subject to planning permission and Listed Building consent.

The development has commenced with a number of significant works having already been implemented and completed. These include structural underpinning, the installation of a Package Treatment Plant drainage system of a capacity to serve the three approved dwellings and the provision of three separate mains water supplies and three separate mains electricity supplies.

Planning
A sympathetic scheme prepared by John Roche Architectural Services proposing the conversion of the barn to three separate dwellings was granted full planning permission and Listed Building Consent by Calderdale Council. Planning Reference 04/02281/CON dated 03 June 2005. Listed Building Reference 04/02282/LBC dated 03 June 2005. NOTE: The barn itself is not a listed building but it is within the setting of Whinney Royd Farm, which is Grade II Listed.
