1 & 2 Highthorn Farm Cottages
The cottages are set back from Hightorn Lane and comprise of a pair of semi-detached brick built rendered properties with slate roofs, both are two bedroomed, with shared gardens and parking area in part bound by mature hedgerows and trees.

Combined the properties total about 2,380 sq ft of internal floor area. Ground floor accommodation of both properties includes a kitchen and two receptions rooms. The first floor of each property includes two bedrooms and a bathroom. Both properties have oil fired central heating and a shared septic tank.

The properties have been improved by the tenants and are attractively presented. There is potential for these to be combined into one larger dwelling (subject to the necessary consents), from which a purchaser could look to develop further farm buildings and a commercial farmstead.

Traditional building and site of former farmhouse To the immediate south of the Cottages is a traditional farmbuilding, stone built with fibre cement roof, used for stabling and storage. There are the remnants of another building to the east and to the west is the site of the former farmhouse which was demolished. The buildings have potential for redevelopment into residential, commercial or leisure uses (subject to the necessary consents).

The land was subject to a longstanding planning application for opencast mining. Ultimately this was unsuccessful and the option agreement has terminated.

The land lies in a ring fenced block north of the cottages, with road frontage to the A1068. The land gently undulates but for the most part is flat at around 10-20 metres above sea level. The land is classified as Grade 3 under the MAFF Provisional Agricultural Land Classification. The soils are from the Foggathorpe 1 series, common to the locality and described as a clay loam soil. The land has supported a typical cereal and grassland rotation.

The land includes a small shelter belt woodland as part of Lot 1.
