Two traditional barns with planning consent for conversion, set in a peaceful rural location with a paddock. The Stables (1,146 Sq ft), Rotunda Barn (2,020 Sq ft). Planning consent for residential use. South-facing aspect. Additional land available.


The barns are positioned on the Somerset / Devon border, one mile west of the small village of Ashbrittle. The village of Appley is 2.5 miles to the east and has a primary school, village store / post office and The Globe Inn, a popular public house.


The towns of Wellington and Tiverton are both within 8 miles and provide a wide range of shops and supermarkets, including a Waitrose at Wellington, together with schools for all ages including Wellington School and Blundells Public School at Tiverton. There is access to the M5 at Junction 26 near Wellington.


The county town of Taunton is within 14 miles where mainline rail services are available and also at Tiverton Parkway, 6.5 miles to the south of the Barns.


These are built of local stone, with stone arches over some openings and occupy an elevated position with wonderful views. Rotunda Barn is largely dilapidated although the stone remains in situ. These two barns are attached and have planning consent to create two separate three-bedroom homes. The Stables totals approximately 106 sq m (1,146 sq ft) and The Rotunda totals approximately 188 sq m (2,020 sq ft).

Please note that the planning application for converting the stone barns requires this building to be removed. Constructed in approx 1983. Clear-span steel frame, concrete floor and a box profile sheeted roof. Fully enclosed with a sliding metal door.


Positioned to the east is a single, south-facing field totalling 17.09 acres (6.92 hectares). There is access directly on to the road which forms the northern boundary.


Planning consent was granted for the conversion of The Stables and Rotunda Barn by Taunton Deane Borough Council on the 7th July 2008 under reference no. 01/08/0002. We understand that the consent has been implemented by virtue of discharge of planning conditions and commencement of certain works on site.
