Property description

An opportunity to purchase an historic landmark building that enjoys a quiet position in a no through lane on the fringe of Marnhull and boasting a rural but not isolated situation with some fabulous countryside views of Tess's Cottage - famous from Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles. The property is presented for sale with the advantage of no onward chain and is in need of extensive refurbishment with full planning permission granted for the ' alteration and conversion of existing flat and maisonette to form three self contained flats' (P/ful/2021/00107). Animation video tour available on request. The property was the former brewery for Marnhull, which we believe dates to around the 1820s and retains character features, which include exposed painted stone walls, part wood panelled walls, fireplaces, exposed floorboards and a delightful arch with high window on the ground floor. The accommodation is arranged over three floors with a small outside area to the back of the property. A viewing is essential to really appreciate this building and its potential.

The Old Brewery

The Property


The main entrances will be found at the back of the building. One door opens into, a studio apartment with kitchen and shower room. The other door opens into a workshop area with sliding doors to the side and stairs rising to the first floor. The first floor is currently laid out as a two double bedroom apartment with large sitting room, kitchen and cloakroom plus shower room and a study area. The second floor offers a further smaller apartment with two bedrooms (some restricted headroom in bedroom two) open plan living space, cloakroom and bathroom. From the second floor landing a staircase leads up to a further room that may be incorporated into the smaller apartment.
The current plan for the conversion of the building show a good sized ground floor apartment that incorporates the workshop to create two double bedrooms, main with en-suite shower room, spacious open plan living space and a family bathroom. The first floor would have two double bedrooms, main with en-suite shower room, large open plan living space and would be re-configured to include the existing shower room into the main apartment. On the second floor the existing layout would remain the same with the open plan space lending itself as a combined kitchen/dining room, bedroom one would become the sitting room, bedroom two as is and the attic would easily accommodate as the primary bedroom with en-suite shower room.


To the front of the building there is a grass verge and to the back there is a small gravelled area. The planning permission shows scope for part of the rear to be used as a bike and bin store. Although, the current planning P/ful/2021/00107 also allows for parking for six allocated spaces plus visitor space. The parking does not form part of these details and sale but are available by separate negotiation.
