A Dutch barn with permission for conversion to a four bedroom detached dwelling together with a further Dutch barn, lean-to and riding arena, all set within about 4 acres at the foot of the Quantock Hills close to Bicknoller, with excellent views across to the Brendon Hills.

The Dutch barn with permission for conversion (application reference ABD/28/19/001 on the Somerset West and Taunton website) measures about 60’ x 25’ and comprises a steel framed building. The plans currently provide for the conversion of the barn to provide, on the ground floor, accommodation comprising:

• Sitting Room
• Study
• Office
• Utility Room with WC off
• Domestic Store

On the first floor:

• Principal Bedroom with en-suite shower room
• Three further Bedrooms

• Landing

There is currently a lean-to off the southern elevation of this barn of about 60’ x 40’, about half of which adjoining the barn for conversion is due to be removed, with the remainder to remain as a mono-pitched storage building.

Situated a short distance from barn for conversion is a further Dutch barn (about 45’ x 20’) with a lean-to off to the rear (about 70’ x 20’).

The buildings are serviced by a surrounding hardstanding providing ample space for access etc to the buildings. The riding school, which extends to about 40m x 20m, is situated a short distance from the buildings and comprises a rubber and sand riding surface. The land which runs on below the buildings and riding school comprises two gently sloping pasture paddocks.

The property is situated at the foot of the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with excellent views across to the nearby Brendon Hills, and easy access from the A358 Taunton to Minehead Road. The nearby village of Bicknoller offers a local shop and public house whilst the larger village of Williton is about two miles to the west, whilst the Somerset County Town of Taunton is about 14 miles away.

The property is offered for sale by private treaty with a guide price of £500,000.

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

Permission was granted in November 2019 by Somerset West and Taunton for the change of use of agricultural building to a dwelling house under application reference ABD/28/19/001. 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(s) and replace with a new-build dwelling.

The purchaser will need to install new mains water and electricity supplies to service the property, both of which are available within the vicinity of the property. The purchaser will also need to install a private drainage system to service the property.

Please note that some of the fixtures and fittings will be removed prior to completion. Further details are available from the agents.

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.
