Tenure: Freehold

Detailed planning consent has been granted for an impressive RIBA architect-designed country house with adjacent guest cottage, both of contemporary, three storey design, with 7,574ft² (704m²) of living space in the main house (South Somerset District Council Planning Reference: 15/00522/FUL).

The frames, concrete floor slabs, insulated blockwork walls and roofs have been erected for both houses and the site is now being offered for sale, so that the purchaser can complete to personal specification. Both houses have elevated positions to optimise views over the surrounding countryside. The main house has a double height atrium and roof light to maximise internal light and a central open plan design encompassing living, dining and kitchen/breakfast areas, with two further reception rooms, entrance lobby, cloakroom, storeroom and a balcony, which fringes the south-facing side of the house. On the first floor are four en-suite double bedrooms and laundry room arranged around the four-sided galleried landing. On the lower ground floor are a fifth en-suite double bedroom, gym and integral triple garage. Detailed plans for both houses have been drawn up for the installation of triple glazed windows throughout, full HVAC system, home automation systems, lighting, kitchen and bathrooms and for the three floor elevator for Bratton Lodge.
The plot measures abourt 5,000m² (100m x 50m)/1.25 acres (0.5 hectare), with the first half sloping at an average gradient of 1:13 before levelling out. The house is approached by a short drive leading to a wide parking area and continues down to the integral triple garage. The garden slopes gently down to a level area extending out from the main house and the consent includes an area of paved terracing fringing its southern elevation.
