A redundant, disused prefabricated bungalow set in glorious, unspoilt countryside provides the essential ingredient for a fabulous transformation into a stunning rural home.

Graham Ford, Partner at development land and planning specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt, who are marketing the site, said: “The property offers developers/private purchasers the opportunity to create a truly exceptional rural home positioned in an enviable setting with glorious views across Somerset and Devon countryside.”

Hele View, Clayhanger, near Wiveliscombe, is a single storey frame dwelling, built in the 1930s and last occupied in the 1960s.

It has an unusual planning permission Q that allows a rebuild on the footprint of the existing structure. Offers in excess of £300,000 are invited for the site.

The building has a footprint of 1083 sq ft (100.61 sq m) and sits in a completely secluded position with exceptional panoramic rural views towards the Blackdown Hills and sweeping towards Mid Devon. It is an “escape to the country” proposition and has all the elements to create an idyllic country retreat with a real sense of privacy and seclusion.

It is set within an unspoilt valley close to the Devon/Somerset border, with views across the hamlet of Clayhanger. The small thriving towns of Bampton and Wiveliscombe are around six miles away, while Dulverton, the gateway to Exmoor National Park is just 10 miles from the property.

Set in an idyllic “away from it all” location it is only 20 minutes from the M5 and rail links to London at Tiverton Parkway and Taunton.

Mid Devon District Council granted permission in 2020 for the main building to be a home under Class Q and agreed a second application for change of use of the land to a domestic garden. Together these permissions permit the structure to once again be used as a private residence.
