Description: Guide Price £500,000 - £1,000,000 Subject to plot size. This is an extraordinary opportunity to build a substantial house in the middle of the most beautiful Somerset countryside with spectacular views of the iconic Glastonbury Tor. Full planning permission has been granted for a six bedroom, 5 bathroom, two storey house. The property is south-facing with an uninterrupted, westerly view to take full advantage of the stunning sunsets which the area is so famous for.
Thrupe Lane has become one of the most sought after areas in Somerset, with a number of barn conversions and new builds taking advantage of the location - southerly facing with far reaching views; unspoilt rural land teeming with wildlife (deer, hare, buzzards, red kite to name a few); close proximity to Wells, Frome and Bruton; a fabulous network of footpaths; easy access to Bristol and Bath with their thriving cultural pursuits and eateries; many amenities close by including two golf courses, Rock Mountain Nursery and Café, Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge.
There is clearly potential to change the design of the current building, subject to the usual planning permissions, should the new owner desire. One could potentially drop the levels and achieve a three storey building; the site lends itself to a modern design or a more traditional building - the scope is endless.
There is the opportunity to buy a further 15.7 acres of land in various lots. This would enable the new owners to, effectively, own their view and, obviously, opens the plot up to the potential of an equestrian property, small holding or, in keeping with the area, a re-wilding project. Again the opportunities are endless.
We are not expecting this to be on the market for long. Please contact us today for more details. Detailed plans will be sent out to interested parties.
