Rare Chance to Create a "Grand Designs" Home

May 2023

Development land specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt are offering the opportunity to build a spacious property enjoying wonderful views of open countryside.

A spokesman said: “The dwelling will benefit from exceptional views across the flat and open landscape of the Somerset Levels and Moors and to the Axbridge Hills and Cheddar Gorge.”

The property will be sympathetically constructed using natural materials and inspired by the features of a traditional cottage with appealing design.

The plot at The Depot, Bailiffs’ Wall, Axbridge, extends to a generous 1.01 hectares (2.5 acres) and has detailed planning permission dated December 2022 to demolish the existing commercial building and to build a detached four-bedroom home with double garage. The property will be open market, but is subject to 12 planning conditions.

When built the property will extend to approximately 197 sq m (2,120 sq ft). There will be an inviting open plan kitchen/dining/family room on the ground floor along with a utility room, living room, hall and WC. Upstairs four bedrooms – two ensuite, main bathroom and airing cupboard complete the layout. The site boundary is a mix of mature trees, dense vegetation and security fencing.

Axbridge is a thriving town with plenty going on. It is also within easy reach of Bristol and is close to Cheddar Reservoir, which offers a range of recreational activities.

It is available on an unconditional basis at a guide price in the region of £575,000. The closing date for the submission of offers is 12 noon on Friday, June 16.

A series of view days will be held on site between 9am-11am on Wednesdays, May 10, 17, 24 and 31. All viewings are strictly by appointment.
