Areas of Outstanding Natural ‘Buildings’

GSC Grays have  successfully achieved a hat trick  with three separate applications to convert redundant farm buildings into residential units within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

All located on the same farm and in view of each other, the three combined successful applications have provided five new dwellings, garaging and a new access road.

Working closely with Durham County Planners, the Conservation Officers and Smith Marsden of Hexham, the staggered project has taken four years to complete.

With one dwelling sold, two sales due to complete shortly and two further dwellings receiving  offers on the same day that planning consent was granted, things are certainly looking promising in what can be a difficult market.  With good plans, realistic pricing and proper marketing, buildings once perceived as liabilities could offer a source of capital.

The key is to understand the process; have a good relationship with the planning officers and get the right architects on board early.
