Finding the right place

Single Building Plot
Guide Price £70,000
Recently Sold
A detailed planning consent has been granted for a spacious two bedroom house and study with an internal floor area of approximately 96m2 or 1033sq.ft. The house will enjoy its own private south-west facing garden with extensive views from this elevated position and on-site parking. The plot is very close to the town centre which is within easy walking distance. The plans indicate the ground floor of the house will have an entrance hall, large open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen. There is also a utility area and WC on the ground floor. The first floor will have a landing, small study, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The house will have a traditional appearance, with canopied entrance porch and dormer windows facing the courtyard. The house will be attached to the blind gable of the adjacent building but it does enjoy privacy and views from this location.
The Site
This is a level site of approximately 14m in length x 12m in depth. The frame of a disused garage will need to be removed as can be seen in the photos of the plot. This is where the new house will sit, also extended back beyond the gate and fence as in the plans. It is a level site. The access is through an existing archway which also serves some other dwellings currently being renovated with work due to complete in August. The plot provides for one parking space for the new house but two could be provided by separate negotiation.
The Area
Wincanton is a small town in South-East Somerset close to the Dorset and Wiltshire borders. It is some 12 miles north-east of Yeovil and some 10 miles north-west of Shaftesbury in Dorset. The town has a population of over 5000 and is a very attractive small town. It is perhaps best known for its racecourse. Being positioned close to the A303, Wincanton is near to a main route between the south-west and London. Nearby railway stations at Templecombe in Somerset and Gillingham in Dorset are on the Exeter to Waterloo line. As well as two primary schools, Wincanton has Somerset’s first specialist sports college at King Arthur’s Community School. The town is also twinned with Terry Pratchett’s fictional city Ankh-Morpork, with several roads named after street names from the Discworld series. Nearby is Bruton which has excellent independent schools, Kings School Bruton, founded in 1519 and Bruton School for Girls. Sexeys School, founded in 1889, provides state secondary education. Both Wincanton and Bruton have many independent local shops and there is a Waitrose and Asda in Gillingham and Morrisons, Lidl and the Co-op in Wincanton. Wincanton has a sports centre as well as rugby, football and cricket clubs.
The plot has access to all main services. Mains drainage, water and electricity are provided to the site boundary. Gas is also available in this town centre location. We would advise interested parties to make their own enquires to clarify this prior to purchase.
The site can be viewed only by appointment through The Land Bank Partnership.
