An exciting opportunity to convert a detached period farm building into a stylish home of 4,567 sq.ft (including a double car port) with gardens and paddock land of 3.5 acres situated in an attractive village setting in the Bourne Valley.

Proposed accommodation will provide; entrance hall • dining room with fireplace • sitting room with fireplace • south facing garden room • large kitchen/breakfast room with walk in pantry • utility • ground floor cloakroom/shower room • 2 ground floor bedrooms (one with an en suite) which can be used as additional reception rooms • 3 first floor bedrooms including master bedroom with south facing views with dressing room and en suite • separate annex/studio or office with self-contained entrance and bathroom/cloakroom • integral double car port • detached outbuilding for storage with adjoining log store • ample drive for private parking • area of domestic garden opening to a proposed orchard which is all south facing and private • paddock with separate access • lovely views from the paddock over the surrounding countryside.

Currently the property is a redundant period farm building, with planning permission for conversion and extension into a substantial and stylish individual dwelling. Planning permission was granted on the 22nd September 2017 by Test
Valley Borough Council for the conversion of the building for residential purposes with associated parking and garden. The permission number is 17/00649/FULLN and the full information relating to the application, can be viewed online via Test Valley Borough Council website www.testvalley.gov.uk.

This development has a 3 year consent from the date of permission and the various conditions relating to the consent can be seen online. The vendors are directors of Osmer Building (Hampshire) Ltd which is a well-respected property
company specialising in quality residential developments. The directors would be pleased to arrange the conversions works, subject to contract, providing the purchaser with a unique opportunity to create the property of their dreams.

Ibthorpe Court is positioned such that all the land, including the domestic garden area, and the paddocks are on the south side of the property. It is approached via a gravel drive, which opens into an area where there will be ample room for private off road parking and access to the double car port. The landscape plan, a copy of which is available from the agent, provides an area of formal garden, including a private and sheltered raised terrace, immediately adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room, beyond which the land rises to the south. The grounds then extend through an area where it is proposed that trees are planted, creating an
orchard, beyond which is the main paddock.
This is permanent pasture, ideal for grazing and has a separate gated access onto a side lane, any livestock or machinery can access the land without going through the domestic garden area. From the top paddock there are extensive views down over the property extending across the valley and beyond.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
