The area surrounding Rodway is known as the Weald Moors and until the 19th Century the land lay under water for the majority of the year. Drainage works on the moors in the late 1800’s allowed occupation of the area and Rodway Manor Farm is believed to date back to this period with the farmhouse and traditional buildings dating from the late 1890’s.

The farm buildings at Rodway Farm formed an integral part of the seller’s farming enterprises until their recent retirement  and the farm buildings are now offered for sale being superfluous to requirements. 

Residential planning permission was granted in April 2019 (Ref TWC/2018/0850) for conversion of the traditional farm buildings into four dwellings.

The buildings are single-storey and of brick construction beneath a part-slate and part-tile roof and are particularly attractive due to the number of interesting architectural features.  A large proportion of the buildings are of timber construction and have timber boarding which has been reflected in the architects proposals. Immense care has been taken in the plans to preserve the integrity of the buildings whilst allowing for the requirements of modern day living. Each unit has a large number of window and door openings along with rooflights and this will ensure that the completed properties are flooded with light and will allow stunning views over the attractive surrounding countryside. Furthermore the conversions are all single storey with vaulted ceilings thereby allowing a more spacious feel to the properties.

The permission provides for four three-bedroom properties ranging from 798 sq ft internally to 1300 sq ft. Unit 1 is a detached unit formed in the oldest of the farm buildings at the western side of the site with the three other units formed in a ‘U’ shaped building which was originally utilised as cattle sheds.

Each property will have the benefit of a private garden and individual parking spaces with unit 1 having a garage.

The site as a whole extends to approximately one acre and includes a number of more modern farm buildings which the buyer will be required to remove in order to abide by the planning permission.
