Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An exciting opportunity to create a bespoke dwelling set in grounds of 31 acres within the heart of the Chew Valley.


Located just a short drive from Bishop Sutton and the Harptrees villages in the beautiful Chew Valley, located at the foothills of The Mendips and highly regarded due to its number of amenities. Within the immediate environs is a parish church, popular primary school, a village store and post office in addition to an excellent pub/restaurant. For more extensive shops, Chew Magna, which is some 5 miles distant offers a large selection of shops, banks and professional services. The Chew Valley offers a wide variety of sporting pursuits with sailing on the Chew Valley Lake, golf at nearby courses and riding on The Mendips, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The local villages are quintessentially English and a suitable rural retreat for those that enjoy a quieter pace of life. The village is accessible to Bath, Bristol and Wells and Bristol International Airport is a mere 6 miles distant, providing flights to a number of European and some long haul destinations.


The site affords spectacular views, to the west towards Chew Valley Lake, Blagdon Lake and on a clear day across the River Severn to Wales. To the south of the site there are delightful panoramic views over Coley reservoir, Chewton Mendip church and to the north and east over rolling Mendip farmland. The site has three elements, a level plateau with extensive views in all directions, a mature woodland windbreak sheltering the plateau and sloping fields over looking Chew Valley lake.

On the 9th November 2016 (planning application number 15/02932/FUL) consent was granted for change of use of this agricultural barn to a residential dwelling. The ground floor area of the barn conversion is approximately 36 ft wide x 61 ft in depth.

The application site is a parcel of agricultural land extending to 31 acres (12.571 Ha) and is situated 0.7 km to the south west of Hinton Blewett village. The land and surrounding area are situated within the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Agricultural buildings on the site consist of a cattle barn, hay barn and traditional stone barn. In addition there is a domestic caravan and Portakabin which are currently in residential use. The consent to convert the hay barn allows for continued usage of the caravan and cabins until completion of the barn conversion. The hay barn was constructed in the mid 1940's and later extended to the rear. It is discreetly sited, well back from the brow of the hill and is partly screened with mature trees and hedgerows.
