A rare opportunity to purchase two farm buildings with planning consent for conversion into two dwellings along with the erection of two garages and located in this sought after hamlet and within delightful private gardens and grounds of approximately 0.8 acres. EPC Exempt


The barns are situated within this rural hamlet surrounded by delightful countryside. The market town of Ilminster is within two miles where an excellent range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities can be found. The A303 is readily accessible being on the outskirts of the town. For a greater selection of facilities Crewkerne is within 5 miles with its Waitrose supermarket and mainline railway station to Exeter and London Waterloo.


These two detached traditional buildings are constructed principally of local stone with brick quoins and contained beneath renewed tiled roofs. The L-shaped barn know as Two Hoots has planning to be converted to provide the following accommodation; entrance hall, cloakroom, kitchen, sitting room/dining room, three bedrooms and a bathroom. Adjacent is a further barn with proposed accommodation of hallway, cloakroom, kitchen, sitting room/dining room, two bedrooms and a bathroom.


The barns are approached off the lane through a pair of timber gates. The professionally landscaped grounds are well hedged and fenced together with post and rail fencing and are laid mainly to lawn with a fine selection of shrubs, bushes and trees. They adjoin open farmland to the south from which wonderful distant views can be enjoyed. In total the grounds extend to approximately 0.8 acres.


Planning permission was granted under application number IH/89/3356/FUL for the conversion of two farm buildings, into two dwellings and erection of two double garages and is dated 28th February 1990. Works were carried out by the vendors and a letter dated 4th September 2000 from the chief planning officer confirms that works have been carried out since the scheme was approved, which keeps the permission valid. There is also a certificate of completion of work from Somerset District Council date the 16th April 1997 relating to drainage for the two barns.
