FOR SALE BY PRIVATE TREATY Freehold with vacant possession on completion 

Situation/Location The property is centrally located within the hamlet of Stoney Stratton. The nearby village of Evercreech has a good array of amenities including a co-op, bakery, pharmacy, garage, doctors surgery and primary school. Bruton has further amenities with a good range of restaurants.

The cathedral city of Bath is 23 miles to the north. Castle Cary has a mainline railway station with direct trains to London Paddington (100 minutes).

Communications by road are excellent with the A303 providing a link to the M3, M25 and London, or the West Country. 

Description A development opportunity to convert an existing brick and block built part rendered barn to a dwelling within a site extending in total to approximately 0.4hectare (1 acre).

The good sized plot offers scope to create a unique dwelling with land ideally suited to a range of uses (subject to planning consent) that would rarely become available in such a location.

The existing barn on site benefits from planning consent for the change of use into a dwelling.

The area outlined in red on the site plan is the area benefiting from the change of use to residential. The area outlined in blue, the land, remains classed as agricultural.  

Planning Details The permission is by way of permitted development under Class Q of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) England Order 2015.

This means the development has to be complete by 30th August 2019.

Confirmation was obtained from Mendip District Council by way of a Certificate of Lawfulness of a Proposed Use or Development, reference 2016/1710/CLP, that the development could proceed. The certificate was issued as the application for the proposed development was determined after the 56 day time limit under permitted development regulations.

Further details are available from Acorus. 

Access The site benefits from its own established access via a short driveway.  

Note Please note the property is 'Sold as Seen'. The vendor accepts no responsibility for any items existing at the property at the time of completion. 

Services At present no services are connected to the property. However with other properties in the vicinity and services in the road at the end of the driveway, connections should not be an issue.  

Local Authority Mendip District Council, Cannards Grave Road, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, BA4 5BT.
