THE OLD SHIPPON
Willow Tree comprises three traditional farm buildings and surrounding land (originally built as a farmhouse, a Shippon & a Barn). Both the Old Shippon and Barn now benefit from full detailed planning permission for conversion into two quite different luxury homes. The land has now been divided into three lots providing each property with their own plentiful garden areas, parking and traditional dry-stone boundary walls. The hamlet is reached by driving down a 0.3-mile private access road crossing open fields.
DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT
Stone built detached bungalow; The Old Shippon will offer three double bedrooms, all with en suite facilities. Two of which benefit from extensive glazing and outlook, and direct access to a landscaped patio and garden area. There is to be an open plan living space with views over the Yorkshire Dales countryside and adaptability built in with double pocket doors separating the kitchen/dining and lounge. The purchaser will have the option of a turfed garden, planted garden or maintenance free garden. Externally there will be a large wooden workshop fully equipped with electricity. At any point during the process, the Shippon will be available to purchase. The timing of purchase will determine the ability to tailor the finishes to the client’s specific requirements. Upon completion the property will be fitted out to a high specification with manicured spacious gardens and ample parking.
Modern, simple, efficient and reliable technology will be built in as standard giving this property excellent credentials as a low running cost, environmentally sound home. The house will be insulated to very high standards and will require very little heating. Hot water and heating will be provided by an efficient air source heat pump which will be further enhanced by solar panels generating electricity to minimise the cost of running the property.
The hamlet is reached by driving down a 0.3-mile private access road crossing open fields.
The Old Shippon will commence in January 2019 and will have an 8 month build schedule.
