INTRODUCTION G Herbert Banks are delighted to be favoured with instructions to bring to the market the former farmyard at Church Farm, Castlemorton. The site is a well-located project for those looking for a former yard and buildings to convert subject to the relevant consents being obtained from Malvern Hills District Council.
LOCATION From Welland take the B4208, South. Having passed through Castlemorton Common there is a left-hand bend in the road, passing the Plume of Feathers Public House on the left. Continue on this road, past Druggers End Lane and the Robin Hood Public House. Church Road is on the left approximately 350m after the Robin Hood Public House. Follow Church Road for just over half a mile and within Castlemorton the site can be found on your right as indicated by the agent’s board by the access gate.
A location plan is included to the rear of the particulars for reference purposes only. Please read the brochure
DESCRIPTION The site is a former farmyard comprising traditional and modern buildings. There is no opportunity to buy additional land with this site other than Lot 2 as described within these particulars. The site benefits from road frontage and access onto Church Road and is partly within the Conservation Area of Castlemorton. Castlemorton is a well-known village close to Malvern, with Castlemorton Common providing many walking and recreational opportunities, with some of the area being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
The site is available as lot 1 alone and potential purchasers have the opportunity to purchase lot 2 in addition as per the details below and the plan to the rear of these details. Lot 2 will not form a standalone sale.
Lot 1 (outlined red, extending to approximately 0.32 acres (0.12 hectares))

SERVICES It is believed that an underground cable comes from a ground mounted transformer on the verge of the Northern side of Church Road to a meter box on the property to the East but it is not believed to be a live supply – potential purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves in respect of the electric/make applications for a new supply at their own cost if required.
We believe that there is a mains water supply pipe in Church Road, however, purchasers would again have to make their own enquiries as to a new connection at their own cost. There is no water currently connected to the site.
