Snailbeach Farmhouse and Traditional Buildings for Conversion
The sale of Snailbeach Farmhouse and Buildings represent a fantastic residential development opportunity which seldom comes to the market within this area. The site extends to approximately 1.5 acres and comprises three detached traditional farm buildings of stone/brick construction with planning permission for conversion into five dwellings, complete with a rendered brick under slate farmhouse in need of modernisation. The existing more modern farm buildings are to be demolished to create domestic gardens and open space.
Snailbeach Farm lies on the edge of the village opposite St Luke's Church with good access to the A488 Shrewsbury to Bishops Castle road. The site has fantastic views over the surrounding Shropshire countryside and is within easy commuting distance of the county town of Shrewsbury and a short drive from Minsterley where a good range of facilities can be found including primary schooling, shops, public houses and local employment opportunities.
Full planning consent was granted on the 14th October 2016 for "the conversion of the traditional buildings into five dwellings, erection of domestic garage, demolition of modern agricultural buildings and alterations to the existing vehicular access at Snailbeach Farm". The planning permission is subject to a number of conditions and a full copy of the planning documentation can be provided upon request. The local planning authority is Shropshire Council and the planning application reference number is 16/04729/FUL. It should be noted that as the proposed development is for only five dwellings, no affordable housing contribution is due.
