A detached former threshing barn of cob, stone and brick, which has been redundant from farm use for many years. It is currently served by mains electricity along with 16 photovoltaic panels on the roof.The planning permission granted has the full support of Awliscombe Parish Council as it will not only save a redundant barn but provide additional accommodation in the village, particularly desirable, as the local planning policy allows very little opportunity for development.The current layout offers a ground floor area of approx. 1,550 sqft, including the lean-to area at the rear. The barn is to be partitioned internally about halfway along its length, and the conversion would incorporate most of the lean-to structure at the rear.The eastern half will offer a hall, shower room, bedroom, sitting room, kitchen/ breakfast room, whilst on the first floor 2 further bedrooms and a bathroom.The western half will offer hall, utility room, sitting room, kitchen/ breakfast room, whilst on the first floor 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.Both properties will provide circa 1,300 sqft of living space and have a garden area with 2 parking spaces.

It is usual, but not always, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing.As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.Reserve Price: The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. Bids may be accepted by the system but the property will not sell if the bidding does not reach the reserve. The reserve price is not disclosed and will remain confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
