Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique and rare opportunity to acquire a working Somerset farm, situated in a rural location on the outskirts of the sought after village of Bleadon and sitting along the banks of the River Axe.

ACCOMMODATION
This fantastic set up offers huge development potential (subject to planning permission and building regulation approval) and includes a charming two bedroom barn conversion which was formerly the Dairy Barn, which retains its characterful features. The freehold property is light and bright and comprises two bedrooms both with en-suites, utility room, kitchen/breakfast room, snug, living room and cloakroom. Patio doors from the living room open out onto a lovely enclosed garden which provides just the spot for relaxing in the sunshine. An extensive collection of farm buildings, barns, livestock sheds, machinery stores, general stores and enclosed livestock yards are accessible via the central yard which have been carefully and thoughtfully positioned with handling livestock and general farm duties in mind. A large Stone Barn which is currently used as workshops and office space presents a wonderful opportunity for a possible conversion (subject to planning permission and building regulation approval). The agricultural pasture land extends to circa 73.08 Acres and surrounds the farm buildings on three sides. The land is mainly grass with a hard core track running through the farm to allow access to the fields all year round. The sale of the farm includes fishing rights along the bank of the River Axe and a further 42.54 acres of land to the South of the River Axe is available to be purchased by separate negotiation if required. Opportunities like this do not come to the market very often – viewing is highly recommended! EPC Rating C70, Council Tax Band D, Business Rates may apply.

LOCATION
Being placed within the charming country village of Bleadon is most desirable for prospective residents. Local facilities include Bleadon village country store & Post Office, a cafe, two garages, a hair and beauty therapy centre, three pubs providing food and drink and fortnightly visits from the mobile library. Doctors' and dentists' surgeries are found at nearby Weston-super-Mare. The hourly daytime bus service will take you directly to nearby Weston General Hospital in ten minutes and on to Weston town centre ten minutes later. The 700-year-old church of St Peter & St Paul stands proudly at the heart of the village and welcomes all to its regular services. The thriving Coronation Hall has a full events calendar; rarely a day goes by without some social activity in the two halls. Alongside you'll find a delightful and safe little children's play area, plenty of free parking and a popular purpose-built youth club. Within minutes of leaving the Coronation car park you can be walking one of many delightful footpaths that will lead you around the Parish. From demanding climbs to the top of the Mendips, an area of outstanding natural beauty, to easy-going riverside trails. For the commuter there is access to the M5 at Junction 21 for those travelling North, but there is also access to the M5 at Junction 22 for those who are travelling South. Railway stations at Weston-super-Mare and Weston Milton are also accessible.
