DESCRIPTION The property consists of a collection of 'agricultural' style buildings constructed in the early 2000s and finished in a mixture of timber weatherboard cladding, reconstituted stone work and render, located on a 0.5 acre (0.2ha) site.
The buildings are currently configured as four holiday lets and an indoor swimming pool, which are currently accessed via the car park of the Full Moon Inn.
THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT The property is sold with the benefit of Full Planning Permission for conversion into seven dwelling houses under Mendip District Council application number 2016/0180/FUL. The application was initially refused in June 2016 but granted no appeal in April 2017 (Appeal Reference: APP/Q3305/W/16/3166097). In summary the approved scheme allows for;
* The conversion of the pool house into two semi-detached properties.
* The reconfiguration of the existing holiday let properties for use as permanent residential dwellings.
Details of the current and proposed configurations of each building are set out in the corresponding sections of this brochure.
OWENS COURT Current configuration
Owens Court is currently configured as a four bed, three bathroom Holiday cottage with large entrance hall, utility room and contemporary open plan living space.
While the current layout of the building is more suited to the holiday rental market than for permanent residents, it is clear that the property has all of the basic necessities in place for use as a permanent home.
The current planning permission proposes the reconfiguration of the property into a large three bed detached dwelling with the addition of former windows on the front façade to create a large family bathroom and allow the relocation of one of the bedrooms upstairs.
It is proposed that the wall dividing the two ground floor bedrooms would be removed to create a large lounge at the rear of the property and the existing en-suite would be reconfigured to provide a downstairs cloakroom.
We note that the proposed downstairs study could potentially provide a fourth bedroom, subject to the necessary consents and compliance with building regulations.
THE ORANGERY Current configuration
The Orangery is currently configured as a single storey barn style pool house with concrete tiled pitched roof housing a small indoor heated pool changing room, WC and various associated storage rooms.
The Planning permission for the sale permits the infill of the swimming pool and conversion of the property in to two semi-detached dwellings, one two bedroom and one two bedroom with additional bedroom/study.
TINTAGEL, JUBILEE AND WELLINGTON COTTAGES Current configuration
The end terrace property is currently configured as a three bedroom holiday cottage with en-suite rooms and a small communal kitchen.
The large mid terrace is currently configured as a large four bedroom holiday let with large family sized letting rooms and a large open plan kitchen living space.
The end is currently configured as a self contained two bedroom cottage with open plan living space on the ground floor and is currently the closest in layout to that of the proposed completed units.
The current proposals for the property leave the upper floor unchanged while the lower ground floor of the property would be reconfigured to convert the ground floor bedroom into a lounge/diner and kitchen.
The current planning permission allows for the division of Jubilee into two mid terrace properties following the lines of the existing building. The design of these units has focused on minimising the volume of construction required to reconfigure the building as illustrated on the plan (right), on which all new walls are shaded.
Both of the proposed buildings are two bedrooms units with open plan living area and separate kitchens.
The layout proposed in the planning permission is largely unchanged from the property's existing layout with the exception of slightly expanding the kitchen area.
TENURE This property is offered to market on the Instruction of The Administrator: Gary Bell of Bell Advisory, on a freehold basis and will be split from a larger title in advance of the sale. Resultantly the property will benefit from appropriate rights over the car park of the Full Moon Inn to facilitate LPG servicing and the installation of a separate septic system.
