Barns For Conversion, Over Stowey TA5


Guide price £375,000

An attractive range of traditional barns with permission for conversion to a substantial five/six bedroom dwelling set in over 8 acres with far reaching
southerly views.


Permission has been granted for the conversion of the existing stone and tile dairy and cubicle housing to a substantial five/six bedroom dwelling totalling about 4,090sqft/380sqm, which is more specifically shown on the plans. The site benefits from far reaching views to the south and is surrounded by its own farm buildings and further land, with permission also granted for the formation of a new private access to the site. In addition to the barns for conversion, the following buildings are included in the sale:

· Three bay steel framed cement fodder store with lean-to off
· Three bay mono-pitch workshop and store
· ‘L’-shaped former pigsties/loose boxes
· Pole and galvanise loose boxes

There is a steel framed cubicle house to the west of the barns for conversion, together with a steel framed loose housing building to the north, which are due to be removed by the purchaser as a condition of the planning permission. There is a good sized enclosure of pasture land to the east of the barn for conversion, together with a further paddock to the south. In all, the property extends to about 8½ acres.


Conditional planning permission was granted by Sedgemoor District Council on 8 January 2019 under application reference 40/18/00015 for the change of use and conversion of existing agricultural buildings to form a dwelling and the formation of access and parking as shown on the plans.


The purchaser will be required to complete the CIL Commencement Notice and return this to Sedgemoor District Council, acknowledgement of receipt of which must be received before any works can commence. Sedgemoor District Council have calculated there is no CIL liability payment due in respect of the current proposed conversion.


Permission has been granted for the formation of a new road access to the east of the site.


Mains water and electricity are available in the vicinity of the site. A new private drainage system will need to be installed by the purchaser. A right will be reserved over Lot 1 for a connection to the mains electricity to be made for Lot 2.


The site is offered for sale by private treaty.


The site currently comprises a working farmstead. Potential purchasers are therefore required to book a viewing as set out below, and to 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. Potential purchasers are requested to wear supportive footwear for viewings, and are advised to be conscious of potentially uneven and slippery ground surfaces.


The site currently comprises a working farmstead. Viewings are therefore by appointment with Carter Jonas on 01823 428590.

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.
