Lovington, Castle Cary, Somerset BA7

Guide Price £350,000

A well situated development site with outline planning consent for three dwellings.

  • Freehold
  • New Build
  • Houses
  • 0.56 Acres


The site comprises a generally level enclosure of land extending to about 0.23 of a hectare (0.56 of an acre). At present the site forms the eastern side of The Old Bakery’s garden. The site is bounded to the east by Brue Farm Cottages, and to the west by The Old Bakery, with agricultural land to the north, and the council maintained lane to the south.

The Consented Development comprises two no. semidetached, three bedroom dwellings with single garages, together with a detached four bedroom dwelling and double garage. The development will therefore provide a sought after opportunity for future home owners to purchase a property on the edge of this rural yet highly accessible village.


South Somerset District Council granted conditional outline planning permission on 31st October 2016 (application reference number 16/03069/OUT) for two no. three bedroom semi-detached dwellings together with a four bedroom detached dwelling. The successful purchaser will therefore need to submit a detailed planning application in respect of the development. The Vendors’ consent will be required in respect of the design of the dwellings. Such consent will not be unreasonably withheld.


Mains water and electricity are available. A new sewage treatment plant will be installed on the site by the Vendor to service the three dwellings, together with The Old Bakery, the Vendors’ property to the west of the development site. The purchaser will be required to move an electricity and telephone cable which currently crosses the access to the site. Potential purchasers should make their own enquiries to the relevant authorities in order to establish the availability and capacity for the development they propose.


A visibility splay is required in respect of the proposed new site access. The Vendor will grant the purchaser the right to construct the required visibility splay along the southern boundary of The Old Bakery, and covenant not to obstruct this in the future.
