A modern barn with consent for conversion to a four bedroom dwelling situated on the edge of Castle Cary set within one acre of land.

The property is situated at Clanville on the edge of Castle Cary. Castle Cary is an attractive small market town offering a wide range of day-to-day facilities, whilst Castle Cary Station is on the mainline and offers fast trains to London Paddington in under two hours.

The nearby popular town of Bruton (about five miles away) offers a wider range of shops and restaurants and the larger towns of Wincanton and Shepton Mallet are also within easy reach of the property, as well at the A303 which can be joined with ease at Podimore, Sparkford or Wincanton.

The area offers a good range of schools with Ansford Secondary School at Castle Cary together with excellent local independent schools nearby including King’s Bruton, Bruton School for Girls, Sexey’s, Millfield, Hazlegrove and All Hallows.

The site is located next to the Heart of Wessex railway line. This is not the mainline to/from London Paddington, it is a minor single track railway from Bristol to Weymouth.

The barn with permission for conversion measures about 70’ x 45’ and comprises a steel framed, block and fibre cement building with a concrete floor. The plans currently provide for the conversion of the barn to provide, on the ground floor, accommodation comprising:

• Entrance Hall
• Kitchen and Dining Room with bi-folding doors
• Sitting Room
• Three Double Bedrooms with en-suite facilities
• Fourth Double Bedroom
• Family Bathroom
• Utility Room
• WC

The land which runs to the south and west of the barn comprises part of a level pasture enclosure and the property offered for sale extends in all to one acre. A new western boundary fence will need to be erected by the purchaser.

The property is offered for sale by private treaty with a guide price of £350,000.

The freehold of the property is offered for sale with vacant possession upon completion of the sale.

Permission was granted in September 2021 by South Somerset District Council for the change of use of the building into a dwelling (application reference 21/02440/PAMB). The development must be completed within three years of the date of the permission in accordance with the plans. However, potential purchasers may wish to explore the potential of submitting their own plans for the conversion or apply to remove the building and replace it with a new-build dwelling.

The site has the benefit of mains water. There is a mains electricity pole adjoining the site. The purchaser will need to install a private drainage system to service the property.

Potential purchasers should take particular care when inspecting the property, bearing in mind especially the risk of sudden movements from machinery, vehicles and livestock which may be present and operating at the time of inspection, especially in and around the farm buildings. Potential purchasers are requested to wear supportive footwear for viewings, and are advised to be conscious of potentially uneven and slippery ground surfaces.

Viewings are by appointment only with Carter Jonas on 01823 428590.

Heading from Lydford-on-Fosse towards Castle Cary on the B3153, continue through Alford and pass the right turning signed South Cary and Sparkford. The entrance to the site will be found on the next left-hand bend, just before the stone built cottages (known as Clanville Cottages) on the right-hand side. If you reach the T-junction with the A371 just outside of Castle Cary, you have gone too far.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
