Tom's Barn sits in a quiet location on the edge of the Dales hamlet of Appersett, near Hawes. The hamlet is pretty with an attractive village green by the riverside. There are views and lovely walks in all directions from the doorstep. Hawes offers an excellent range of shops, pubs, restaurants, primary school, Church, and medical facilities.
The town is within walking distance; a lovely walk along the riverside from Appersett brings you straight into the town centre. The local 'Little White Bus' provides regular transport into Hawes, nearby Garsdale Station, and the surrounding villages. Tom's Barn sits on a good sized, gently sloping plot, around 0.3 acres. The barn appears to be in good structural condition. Planning was originally granted in 2019 for conversion to a three-bedroom property to be used for either local occupancy or holiday use. The current owners bought the property and have since created their own plans which has been approved. The new plans would create a modern, high spec property. On the ground floor will be a contemporary kitchen at a lower level and steps up to a full height living room with multi fuel stove. There will also be a double, ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower. The stairs lead to a gallery landing with a balcony overlooking the dining space, this would make an ideal work from home area. The first floor will have a large double bedroom and a family bathroom.Externally, the property will be approached via a metal gated driveway. There will be a bin storage area, possibly space for a heat pump, and a gravel car park for at least two vehicles with turning space. To the front of the property will be a South facing flagged area enclosed with new dry-stone wall, an ideal patio and sitting space. The planning permission is subject to a section 106 agreement, meaning the property can be used for either local occupancy or holiday use only. There are currently no connected services. This an exciting opportunity to take on a self build in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
