Full description

A substantial farm building with approval for change of use to 3 dwellings. Services available. Option to acquire additional land.

Situation - Taw Mill Farm is situated outside the village of Sampford Courtenay which is a popular small village with a pub and church. The town of Okehampton is about 5 miles with a good range of shops and services. Exeter is about 24 miles which has an excellent range of facilities befitting the city whilst the property is a reasonable distance from the A30 dual carriageway which links to the M5 motorway. The Dartmoor National Park is to the south with its hundreds of square miles of unspoilt scenery.

Description - The building, which is approximately 36.8m x 13.8m, has had an imaginative scheme approved to create a row of 3 substantial, single-storey dwellings as indicated on the attached plans. However, due to the height of the existing building, there is scope for each of these dwellings to be two-storeys thereby substantially increasing the amount of space.

The drawings, prepared by Rowan Edwards, Town Planning & Architecture of 21 Plymouth Road, Tavistock, PL19 8AU, are available from the agents though in summary each has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 en suite), kitchen/living room, utility room and study:-

Dwelling 1 - 10.8m x 13.0m

Dwelling 2 - 10.7m x 13.3m

Dwelling 3 - 10.8m x 13.0m

Included with the property is its own entrance drive along with an area of agricultural land shown hatched blue. The approved site of the conversion is shown hatched red. Shown hatched green is an additional area of agricultural land available by separate negotiation.

Services - The seller will bring in a new mains water supply to the property. A 3- phase electricity supply is already connected to the building. The buyers will have to install a new private drainage system. An easement will be granted is required for a soakaway/drainage pipe.

Prior Approval Consent - Under the Town & Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2015, prior approval was given by West Devon Borough Council (www.westdevon.gov.uk) Ref: 00694/2015 on 15th September 2015. A copy of the consent is available from the agent.
