DESCRIPTION The Barn is situated to the North of Doulting, accessed off an unnamed road between Chelynch and Bodden, approx. one km from the main A361 road between Shepton Mallet and Frome. The main access is a right of way with full vehicular and pedestrian access. The new vendor will be required to contribute towards the upkeep of the road as and when required.
The whole site measures just under 4.4 acres. Adjoining the site immediately to the east are three residences converted from former agricultural buildings and the old Farmhouse respectively, the latter being Grade II Listed. To the West of the site is an existing modern farm building, while to the North of the land are open fields. The adjoining agricultural buildings on the plot are constructed of brick and steel with asbestos roofs, they are no longer in use and will be demolished.
The field that is included in this purchase is on a slight gradient with its own vehicular access to the side of the agricultural buildings.
