We are delighted to offer for sale a handsome stone built barn with full planning to convert and develop into one of the areas most desirable residences encapsulated within a gorgeous rural landscape.

Enviably located in a stunning countryside setting that offers uninterrupted views over farmland to the rear yet within walking distance to local amenities including some outstanding schools for all ages, a historic country pub and public transport links and major motorway networks, Plane Tree Farm Barn has full planning permission to convert into a contemporary detached dwelling with formal gardens and agricultural land extending to 4.6 acres.

Designed by renowned local architects Peter Dickinson, full planning permission was granted on 14th October 2021 to convert and extend the associated barn of Plane Tree Farm into a contemporary four-bedroom three-bathroom detached dwelling with a proposed total floor area of over 2500 square feet of sleek and stylish living accommodation specifically designed to take advantage of the glorious setting and open views to rear. A new double garage will be added and the existing garage will also be converted into a covered outside kitchen and dining area (not included in the square footage). The planning permission also permits the buyer to create a private access off Crank Road with a big sweeping cobbled and stone set driveway leading to garaging. (Planning Application A/21/90981/FULL).

The barn will sit in a beautiful tranquil location within approximately 0.6 acres of formal gardens that will back directly onto its own adjoining agricultural farmland totalling 4 acres that is currently tenanted by the local farmer giving buyers the benefit of owning the land and protecting their boundary whilst receiving a rental income and having the tenant maintain the land to a really high standard.

The properties occupy an enviable location between the villages of Orrell and Billinge and are easily commutable to Wigan, Ormskirk, Liverpool and Manchester as well as the excellent motorway network. The area is renowned for good schools – nursery, primary and secondary schools – and there is a wide selection of restaurants, country pubs and shops to try in the surrounding villages and hamlets.
