Description

The site itself sits in the Northern Greenbelt in Enfield, Greater London. The 1-acre site is the last piece of brownfield land on the farm which has yet to be restored. There are currently 4 dwellings on the farm, a large Grade II listed farm house, an Oast barn conversion and a pair of large cottages.

Electric gates at the farm entrance lead directly down a 200-metre gravel driveway, which then brings you directly to the site.

Currently existing on the site is a very large Grade II Listed barn dating back to 1566 which now has planning permission to be converted into 2 luxury dwellings, along with this, planning has also been granted for the erection of 2 large, detached, barn style, oak frame dwellings.

A huge amount of preparation work has been undertaken by the current seller in order to make the buyers next steps as straightforward as possible, as such please see the link below to all relevant information.

Location

Crews Hill is an elevated and green buffered former hamlet of Enfield which has grown into a small village sized community in the north outskirts of London centred 12.3 miles north of Charing Cross. It forms part of the London Borough of Enfield and economically has many garden centres and plant nurseries.

Transport

Crews Hill has one bus service (route W10). Crews Hill is served by Crews Hill railway station with trains to Hertford North, Stevenage, Hitchin and Letchworth, in the north, and Moorgate, or Kings Cross to the south.

Title

Title number AGL369146 is registered at HM Land Registry with title absolute. All rights of way have been  checked and this land benefits from access by foot and vehicles in perpetuity. There are no onerous covenants or restrictions. There are no public rights of way that cross the land. Chancel search is fully indemnified against.

Services

Since purchase the current owners have negotiated fresh, simplified easements. All new services can now be run in a straight line on the right-hand side of the main driveway. This is the opposite side to the existing services, which will serve for a simpler build with less disruption and easier access. There are 3 documents available:

  • A signed and enacted easement for temporary services. The £1,000 fee to enact it has been paid, so temporary services can be run immediately.
  • A guarantee to grant permanent easement is signed and fully paid for.
  • A complete permanent easement for all services is ready to enact (All legal fees are paid) with a price tag of £5000 to serve this notice before works can start. Ready to serve notice immediately.

Electricity Supply

The electricity supply to the Farm was upgraded about 15 years ago when the Oast Barn was converted. A services cabinet is in place and there is 60KVa of 3 phase supply ‘spare’. If this is insufficient, the mains substation is situated at the main Farm Gates so upgrade would be simple, but unlikely be needed.

Sewage

There is no mains drainage for any properties on Whitewebbs Road.

There are legal access rights to drain into the Whitewebbs Farm septic tank (in the garden of one of the cottages).

Water Supply

The development plot does have the legal right to tap into the water supply already on the farm. The connection point tee is in a mains junction manhole near the gates to the farmhouse.

Gas

There is no mains gas supply for any properties on Whitewebbs Road. In the Whitewebbs Farm courtyard to the south of this plot and just in front of the Oast Barn, there are 2 LPG tanks already buried and in use by the existing properties. There is an approved planning application for a 3rd LPG tank in this courtyard and the new buyer will  have the rights to install it.
