Full description


Occupying an elevated position with extensive views towards Wells and Glastonbury Tor, the barn at Hill House Farm has permission for conversion to a three bedroom dwelling of approximately 1900 sq.ft.
The barn is approached from the lane to Hill House Farm by way of a stone driveway and is set in grounds
amounting to about 0.5 acres.

The property is situated at the entrance to Hill House Farm and a public maintained lane leads to the farm from the lane linking Launcherley and Dulcote. Launcherley comprises a small group of houses and is situated 1 mile from Wells. Whilst being situated away from main roads, the A39 and A371 are readily accessible and the property is within commuting distance of Bristol (21 miles), Bath (21 miles) and Castle Cary railway station (12 miles).
There is an abundance of country lanes, footpaths and bridleways providing ample walking and riding opportunities in the vicinity and the property is close to excellent schools in the private and state sectors.


Mendip District Council determined in February 2016 (ref 2016/0367/PAA) that prior approval for the proposed change of use of the barn was not required as the proposal was permitted by Class Q of the Town and
Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015. The submitted plans provided for
the creation of a two storey dwelling providing Hall, Kitchen, Dining Room, Sitting Room, Three Bedrooms and Two Bathrooms.
It is advised that an application for a Certificate of Lawfulness is submitted to the planning authority prior to
the completion of any sale confirming that any development proposed by any purchaser can be implemented.


Any purchaser will be responsible for fencing the boundaries of the property, where appropriate to a specification agreed by the vendors and for installing a new entrance from the lane leading to Hill House


Additional land may be available subject to separate negotiation.


From Wells, proceed on the A39 towards Glastonbury. After ½ mile turn right towards North Wootton next to Browns Garden Centre. Continue for ¼ mile and take the next left turn. Then turn right to Hill House Farm and the property will be found on the left.


Strictly by appointment only


Whilst it is for potential purchasers to make their own enquiries, it is understood that services are readily available.
