North Farm Elwick – Residential Development Opportunity it Prime Village Location, extending to 4.4 acres (1.78 ha), with additional 2 acres.

North Farm was once a thriving and busy working farm at the heart of the village, but is now largely redundant. Access to the farmsteading is directly off Elwick Road and this leads through to the adjoining farm land to the north and east of the steading.

The property comprises the farmsteading and 3 bed Georgian Farmhouse in need of modernisation, together with paddock land to rear. Formerly with benefit of detailed planning permission granted 19th March 2010 for ‘Change of Use, Alterations, Extensions and New Build to Create 14 Dwellings and Creation of New Vehicular Access’. Application Reference No. H/2008/0026. Now lapsed.

The additional land extending to circa 2 acres, is identified in the Local Plan (adopted May 2018), as a new housing allocation Reference HSG7 for approx 35 dwellings. (Potters Farm/North Farm). Within the Local Plan the farmsteading is identified as falling within a Conservation Area (Policy HE3).

The main farmsteading includes the original Georgian two storey farmhouse with views onto the Main Street, together with a range of traditional brick and stone outbuildings; barns; stores and cow byres, arranged around a central courtyard. There are a number of other more modern agricultural buildings and implement stores including a large portal steel framed building extending to approximately 9,000 sqft (850 sqm). The farmhouse itself requires complete refurbishment and modernisation.

Location & Situation

The property is situated at the north eastern edge of Village. It enjoys a generally open aspect to north and borders the end of the Village Green to the south west.

The Village of Elwick is located in County Durham, approximately 1 mile to the east of the A19 and 4 miles west of Hartlepool. The proximity of the A19 puts the village within a sensible commuting distance of either Newcastle to the North or Teesside to the South.

This attractive village has retained its aura of rural charm with a pleasant mixture of old, new and renovated properties around the Village Green helping to give the area its ‘picture postcard’ appearance much favoured by local artists. Despite its relatively small size, with a population of some 600 people, the village has a close knit community and a number of excellent facilities, including St Peter’s Primary School and two Village Pubs (The McOrville and The Spotted Cow).
