    Site with full planning permission for 4 new build residential dwellings


    The site, which is outlined red on the OS plan, is located within open countryside on the south east outskirts of Dundon and to the south of Compton Dundon. It is accessed via Decoy Lane, an adopted highway running southerly from Peak Lane all the way to the site.

    The proposed redevelopment will demolish all the barns to the north of Decoy Lane, replacing them with 4 new build houses, two detached and two semi-detached, all of which will have extensive views over the countryside to the east, south and west over Kings Sedge Moor and the Polden Hills.  The land to the south of Decoy Lane does not form part of the sale but all the barns will be demolished apart from the largest barn which will remain for the storage of agricultural equipment.  Decoy Farm itself is not part of the sale as it is under separate ownership.  The village church and bus stop are in walking distance with the bus service having links to Street, Glastonbury, Wells, Yeovil and Taunton.


    The site is available on a freehold basis with vacant possession on completion.


    VAT will not be charged on the sale of the land.


    The site has full planning permission for ‘partial demolition of farmyard and the erection of 4 dwellings associated access, turning, parking, gardens, orchard and visibility splay improvements’: 

    Unit 1 Detached 5 Bed House – 3,725sqft
    Unit 2 Detached 4 Bed House – 2,690sqft
    Unit 3 Semi-Detached 4 Bed House – 1,668sqft
    Unit 4 Semi-Detached 3 Bed House – 1,435sqft

    Planning was granted by South Somerset District Council on the 3rd January 2018, the full details of which can be found on the South Somerset website under the planning reference 17/03501/FUL. A planning pack containing the main planning documents, including the approval is available on request by emailing or calling 07775 436322.


    Mains electricity and water are available for connection on site, please make your own enquiries concerning capacities and additional connections to the statutory undertakers direct. The site has no mains sewer so new onsite domestic sewage treatment facility will need to be put in place.


    The property is offered for sale by private treaty. A further 1.13 acres is available for separate negotiation.  The vendor is seeking to dispose of the site on an unconditional basis and are seeking offers for the site by no later than 12 noon Friday 2nd November 2018.


    In this instance please call Saraid Gresswell on 07775 436322 or email her on
