DIRECTIONS: Travelling south from Bath on the A367 take the right hand turning onto the B3115 signposted Tunley. Follow Tunley Road through the village continuing towards Timsbury and Tunley Farm will be found on the right hand side recognised by the for sale board. Alternatively travelling from Timsbury proceed along North Road on the B3115 to Meadgate. Proceed up the hill to Tunley and the property is on the left hand side.

The property comprises an attached stone former farm building which has planning consent to convert to a live/work unit providing residential accommodation together with an office/ studio.

The current proposal includes property not in the ownership of the vendor and the property is being offered for sale on the basis of either a straight sale of the property controlled by the seller or on a subject to planning basis to resubmit an application for an extension to the barn which would allow it to be a viable unit in its own right.

Tunley is a popular country village location easily accessible to the City of Bath and with Bristol within reasonable daily commuting distance. Further daily amenities are available at nearby towns of Keynsham and Midsomer Norton with village amenities at Timsbury and the Park and Ride at Odd Down. The village has a popular gastro pub and the site of Tunley Farm enjoys southerly facing views to the front across the Cam Valley.     

PLANNING: The existing planning consent was granted on the 2nd September 2015 Application Number 14/05871/FUL by Bath & North East Somerset Council which permitted the conversion of existing farm building to create one live/work unit and redevelopment and extension of existing derelict garage to form covered parking spaces. This was granted subject to conditions and a copy of the consent is available from the agents.

The existing consent envisages the following accommodation: 
Nash Partnership Drawing Number 13122(L)104 





IT Architects of Cardiff have also produced a draft plan which does not have planning consent but indicates two reception rooms and kitchen at ground floor level and two bedrooms on the first floor, achieved through an extension to the existing building. This has not been included with the particulars but is available for inspection if required.


1. When viewing the building from Tunley Hill our clients ownership only extends to the open part of the building not to that part with two windows on the right hand side which was included within the planning consent. For this reason the property is offered for sale either on the basis that it can be acquired as it stands excluding the part of the building on the eastern side and the buyers are free to undertake some negotiations with the adjoining owners to acquire it if required, or on the basis of a purchase subject to a further planning application to extend the barn on the western side which would allow a viable unit to be created without the need to acquire the eastern part of the building.

2. There is a rear service road leading from Priston Lane to a derelict garage which has consent to provide covered parking. There is also an area of garden to the western side of the barn and to the rear. The boundaries are not fenced and interested parties should have regard to the Plan Drawing Number 13122(L)106 from Nash Partnership on which the area of land proposed to form part of the sale has been shown edged in red.

VIEWING: At any reasonable daylight hour showing normal courtesy to adjoining owners and nearby occupiers. Extreme care should be taken if viewing the buildings inside as they are in a poor state of repair and no liability is accepted to any injury sustained while viewing the property.
