Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Synwell Farmhouse comprises a period property at the heart of Wotton-under-Edge, situated at the entrance to the popular Jays Mead development. Wotton-under-Edge is a popular Cotswold market town, with good links to the M5 motorway providing convenient access to Bristol and the South West.

The property has wide ranging appeal, with a large house and adjacent business premises. It is considered that the house could be reverted to two independent family dwellings, each with generous Gardens, or converted for a residential business use (possible Nursery or Residential Home subject to planning), alternatively part could be used for other homeworking.

There is double glazing throughout with traditional features, such as exposed beams and open fires although some modernisation is required.

Outside, the Commercial Workshop and Yard has been used as an operating centre for 2 Heavy Goods Vehicles, although is perhaps better suited to a less intensive use, providing good secure Storage.

The whole site has previously been granted consent for redevelopment, for 5 new detached family dwellings. The consent has now lapsed, although it is considered could be re-applied for either as a similar scheme or for retention of the existing dwelling and a smaller number of new plots.

The property has dual access off of Synwell Lane and Jays Mead and enjoys views over St Marys Church towards open countryside beyond.

There is an extensive lawn area adjacent to the drive, including a substantial garden pond. To the rear of the workshop is a vegetable garden.
