Landmark Estates

November 2016

Home Farm was acquired on an unconditional basis in June 2015 by Senior Land Buyer Ben Olds. The twenty-two acre redundant farmstead is located circa two miles from the busy Town Centre of Tidworth and has excellent access to the A303. The site sits in a prominent and prestigious location, directly opposite the Tidworth’s picturesque Polo Course.

The complicated Brownfield site required a significant investment from the outset, from general site clearance through to the comprehensive and challenging planning application.

Landmark Estates bespoke professional team worked closely with the Paris Council in order to derive the most appropriate and well-planned scheme for the site.

Whilst the overall farmstead currently sprawls over twenty acres, the developable area is actually relatively condensed. This meant that any proposed scheme needed to be carefully considered, if it were to gain the requisite local support.

The farmstead currently consists of a derelict farmhouse and over 60,000 square feet of poor quality farm buildings. The newly consented scheme is for a total of fourteen dwellings, seven of which utilise the tradition farm buildings surrounding the existing detached farm house and the remaining seven are new build properties.

From an overview perspective the fourteen units are arranged in two ‘horse shoe’ style cul-de-sacs, with the new build element capturing design elements from the traditional farm buildings.

Managing Director James Bradley says:

“Our aim and brief was to concentrate all of the built form to one side of the site, allowing us to demolish all of the unattractive more modern farm buildings and return the ground back to paddocks for the residence. This will create an attractive rural setting and offer the residents a chance to have onsite equine facilities etc.

Our focus on the overall development was to regenerate the tired looking site and offer the local community a unique opportunity to acquire a stunning home in what is a fantastic and diverse location, something our research highlights is not currently available on the market.

As Tidworth continues to grown, it was hugely important to work with the Parish Council on all design led aspects. Their local knowledge and design influence is clearly credited to the final scheme and we are naturally delighted with the planning outcome”

Following extensive negations the newly granted consent gives back to the Parish Council.

Part of the Section 106 contribution gifts a circa 8.5 acres arable field to the Parish Council. The land is offered as protected public open space for residents for recreational purposes.

The suggestion to offer something tangible back the Parish Council was highlighted by local councilors and the Mayer of Tidworth Chris Franklin.

With Tidworth being surrounded almost completely by military owned land, the opportunity to secure open space specifically for the general public was incredibly rare.

To further this a £30,000 cash contribution has been offered to implement the landscaping program, which has been carefully designed creating a parkland style setting.

As part of Landmarks ongoing attempt to create a balanced development, we have worked with the Wiltshire’s Councils District Valuer in order to ensure the scheme is tailored to a wide range of buyers. The consented scheme therefore supports one discounted market value unit, which will help to ensure the scheme is affordable to all buyers and will help with generational growth.

The scheme is likely to come forward during the coarse of 2017 and for more information please contact Ben Olds M: 07827338521 E: ben@landmarkestates.co.uk.

Each of the proposed dwellings will have onsite off road parking and will be finished to a high standard.

The site is located in the Winchester Conservation Area, close to Winchester City Centre and with a prominent frontage onto Chesil Street, one of the main access roads into the city.

It comprises a substantial double-fronted, grade ll listed building with accommodation on four floors, including a basement level.
