Planning consent to build a 3,541 sq ft home (including annexe) on 7.40acres, replacing existing three bedroom cottage.
Willow Cottage is currently a three-bedroom detached home, converted from a barn in the 1986. Its south facing garden is on extensive domestic curtilage surrounded by 7.40 acres of arable land with a separate gated farm entrance. It is a traditionally built solid stone building with most of the living accommodation on the ground floor with a further bedroom and ample loft space on the first floor. The décor is in good order. This rare opportunity includes approved planning permission for a luxury four bedroom family home with inspiring exterior and expansive views across this large plot. Full architectural plans are available. Furthermore, all of the service required for the new dwelling; septic tank and drainage etc. are all new and in place, as are extensive stone garden walling, landscaping and impressive driveway entrance with double electric gates. Some of the granted planning work has already started - the annexe and garage have been built - which allows for the permission to be in perpetuity. Built with no expense spared, this fully alarmed flexible luxury accommodation can be used as a home office, a gym, a sleep-out, granny flat, a wellness retreat or whatever you need the space for. It has its own electricity, Wi-Fi, and (phone app controlled) underfloor heating throughout (with three heating zones). The attached bathroom is a Villeroy & Boch wet-room with both rainforest and standard shower-heads, side jets and a top of the range sauna. Both the external and internal doors and solid oak, handmade by local craftsmen with Samuel Heath door hardware. The large double garage is centrally heated with the convivence of a full electric panelled garage door. Outside there is a generous block paved area for parking. The rear of the plot is superbly positioned to benefit from extensive views from the South-Easterly garden giving the opportunity to gaze at some stunning sunsets. The views are far and wide and extend to to Salisbury plains in the South and the Westbury White Horse is clearly visible. In the front of the property, the impressive curved walled entrance with its double electric gates (which can be opened remotely by phone, remote control or key pad) sweeps around to the front of the house and annexe/garage on a gravel driveway. The agricultural fields surrounding the house gently slope down and away from the property bordering arable agricultural land. There has been no expense spared with the extensive garden walling, and hand cut Bath stone copings, including and impressive archway leading through to a secret meadow which the current owners had plans for an orchard. Adjacent to the wall is a solid concrete block built shed, clad in Oak with a stone roof matching that of the garage/annex, with Wi-Fi, alarm and power. The property benefits from a private well which is fully connected to the annexe and garden taps and gives the opportunity to be self contained/0ff grid. There are several external security cameras throughout the property connected to the Wi-Fi and accessible 24/7 worldwide by phone app.
Willow Cottage is on the B3109, close to Woolley Green, and north east of Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire in the Somerset and Cotswolds borders. Bradford is steeped in history, its growth due to a thriving wool industry and the River Avon that flows through it. Today, the town is home to numerous independents shops, restaurants and pubs and is a popular tourist destination. The city of Bath is a short train ride (or 20 minute drive), while the surrounding countryside and villages are easily accessible walking or cycling via the area's many footpaths and bridleways as well as along the Kennet and Avon Canal.
