££625,000 Guide

Equestrian Facility For Sale

An exciting development opportunity to build a 4 bedroom house in a very private location on a rural smallholding on the outskirts of Royal Wootton Bassett, in all about 11.77 acres (4.76 ha).

The Property
Wootton Meadows Farm is a delightful rural smallholding with the opportunity to build an attractive 4 bedroom family home together with a range of useful modern and traditional farm buildings which lend themselves to a variety of uses and a series of grass paddocks, in all extending to about 11.77 acres (4.76 ha).

The property is approached along a private track which is nearly 3/4 mile long.

The Farmhouse
Planning permission has been granted by Wiltshire Council (20/00027/FUL) for the erection of a stylish 4 bedroom dwelling on 6th April 2020. This is as a replacement for the existing dwelling.
The proposed house will extend to about 3685 sq ft (342 m2) and is to be constructed in an attractive red farmhouse brick and set over two floors. The development shall begin within 3 years of this date.

The detailed plans and layout can be studied on the Wiltshire Council planning portal with the planning consultant advising the vendors being Mr R Keech.

The farmhouse will have extensive and unspoilt views stretching across open countryside and over its own land. The Broad Town White Horse, which is etched onto the nearby chalk escarpment can be seen from the property.

Internally the layout of the house is modern and contemporary with a large entrance hall, a spacious family room which is south facing and a good sized kitchen/utility. Upstairs there are two en-suite double bedrooms, a family bathroom and two further double bedrooms.

Outside there is to be parking for 4 cars and a landscaped garden.

Farm Buildings
There are an extensive range of modern and single story farm buildings extending to approximately 15,400 sq ft (1,433 M2) situated around a concrete yard with good access to the land.
The buildings have been used for storage and previously for livestock and they lend themselves to a wide variety of uses (subject to planning). They are well positioned and access for vehicles and equipment with several buildings having high eaves height.

The Land
The land, which extends to about 9.88 acres ( 4 ha) has not been actively used in recent years and is currently laid to pasture which is overgrown. The soil is a fertile clay loam producing good crops of grass for hay and silage. The land is flat and divided into three convenient sized fields which allows for easy machinery working and animal husbandry. The hedges are thick and when cut back will provide excellent stockproof boundaries for livestock.

Development Uplift Clause
When the owners purchased the property, an overage clause was placed on the farmland, but not the buildings and yard by the previous owners. This states that should any change of use occur on the property, except equestrian, for a period of 50 years commencing on 12/08/2008 that a 50% uplift is paid on the grant of planning permission. Further details can be obtained from the agents.

Wootton Meadows Farm is situated in a tranquil position just south of the attractive market town of Royal Wootton Bassett.
