Bedford Lodge Farm, Lodge Lane, Manchester Road, Leigh, Greater Manchester

Guide price

Superb residential development opportunity set in 1.17 acres or thereabouts. Formerly benefitting from planning consent to provide three detached dwellings with the application currently in the process of being resubmitted to Wigan Council.

Bedford Lodge Farm is located approximately 0.25 miles along a privately owned driveway and includes a range of traditional brick constructed stables / barn, outdoor arena and paddock. In total the property extends to approximately 1.17 acres and offers great potential for development of the buildings, with the site formerly benefiting from planning consent for 3 detached dwellings.

The driveway enters the property into the central yard area, around which the buildings are set. The buildings are of red brick construction under pitched slate and sheet roofs. As detailed on the floorplan, the buildings comprise a large 'L' shaped Barn and former Shippon, with a further open sided Storage Building positioned to the East of the courtyard. The buildings are currently being used for equestrian stabling and barn accommodation, with the property including an outdoor arena with silica sand and rubber surface. The quiet locality of site and surrounding countryside offer excellent opportunities for 'hacking out' to the north on a variety of tracks and bridleways.

The site has previously benefited from planning consent from Wigan Borough Council under application Ref: A/17/84474/FULL, allowing for the 'extension, part demolition, conversion and alterations to roof height of existing stables and barn to create 3 detached dwellings with parking, landscaping and access'. This planning expired in 2021, however the vendor is re-submitting the planning application with full demolition order, with planning consent expecting approval due to the former planning approvals granted at the property. Further documentation regarding the former planning consents are available on Wigan Borough Council Planning Portal.

Development opportunities of this nature are not regularly offered to the market and this is a rare opportunity for both developers and private individuals to build fabulous properties or a substantial and private family home in a much sought after location. The vendor would be negotiable for only including part of the buildings within a sale, or including additional land, subject to separate negotiation.
