Former farm offers prime opportunity for new homes through Mather Jamie

The 1.15 acre site, on Hall Lane in Packington, near Ashby-de-la-Zouch, ceased functioning as a farm some years ago and is currently redundant. Planning permission has been granted by North West Leicestershire District Council for nine homes to be built which will offer more than 15,500ft² of accommodation.

The Planning Approval permits the retention and conversion of the existing principle farmhouse, believed to have been built in the 1850s, and frontage barn to form four new dwellings. The remaining agricultural buildings are to be demolished to make way for five single storey and two storey homes.

Gary Kirk, Associate Director for Mather Jamie, said, “We are excited to be bringing this promising development site to the market. The main farm house has plenty of history, and would make an ideal renovation and conversion project, while the rest of the site presents a rare opportunity as a location for much needed new homes for the area.”

Benefitting from a range of local amenities including a well-regarded primary school, plus a convenience store, pub and village hall, Packington is a village with a rich history, and is also part of the National Forest. The location also boasts transport links with convenient access to the A42, M1 Junction 24 and East Midlands Airport, and the area is well served for both private and local authority schooling, with Repton, Foremarke and Loughborough schools all nearby.

This site is being offered for sale by informal tender, with an offer deadline of 12 noon on Friday 14th July. For more information, including viewing arrangements, please contact Gary Kirk on 01509 233433.
