The sale offers an excellent opportunity for a high quality development in a rural setting in the village of Nunthorpe to the south of the borough.
The first site comprises the buildings of Nunthorpe Hall Farm, while the second site is a smaller group of buildings known as Blacksmith’s Yard, on the other side of the road through the village.
Both sets of buildings are brick with slate roofing and were built in the Victorian period as part of the nearby Nunthorpe Hall estate.
The farm buildings comprise a farmhouse and a range of predominantly single storey buildings suitable for barn-style conversion to residential use around a central courtyard.
Included with the farm is the former walled garden of the hall and a number of fields that will be suitable for use as gardens, paddocks or open space for the dwellings.
The Blacksmith’s Yard is a smaller group of buildings in a similar style.
Guidance drawn up by the North of England Civic Trust indicates the existing buildings of Nunthorpe Hall Farm can be converted to seven or eight dwellings, while the more modern buildings can be replaced with between five and seven houses and seven garages.
The Blacksmith’s Yard can be converted to between two and three houses, to include a garage if only two houses are provided.
The property is to be sold by informal tender using the North East Procurement Organisation online system.
Interested parties are invited to attend a viewing day at the premises on Friday, September 11 from 1pm to 4pm. (As Nunthorpe Hall Farm remains an operational farm, it is particularly important that interested parties are requested only to visit the premises during this viewing opportunity.)
