Seend Hill


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3

A unique development opportunity to take a well appointed property and create a GRAND DESIGN style home with the planning consents that are both in place. Wych Elm is set in an enviable location on the outskirts of Seend with far reaching views amidst a generous secluded plot. This individual home built in the 1950s offers individuals great scope to enlarge and modify to their own design and indeed has planning granted for a two storey extension and new double bay barn style garage 18/09512/FUL (see attached CGIs). Internally the property has a stylish refitted kitchen with parquet flooring, a sitting room with a bay window, a study, cloakroom and three bedrooms. All bedrooms have en suites with the Master featuring a dressing/family room and full en suite bathroom with roll top bath. Outside a long driveway winds up alongside the garden and leads to a parking area for a number of vehicles. There is a lockable 30ft workshop and an open fronted double bay garage, an orchard, a poly-tunnel frame, lawns with established beds and private seating areas. Consent has been passed for a holiday cabin that could bring in an income stream. Offered with no onward chain.


From Devizes Market Place proceed out on the Bath Road and down Caen Hill and after approximately three miles bear left at the traffic lights on to the A361 sign posted to Trowbridge. Continue up the hill and just at the top there is a shingled driveway and entrance for Wych Elm.


The property is set in a wonderful location discreetly tucked away on the edge of this popular village, enjoying fabulous far reaching views across towards the historic Roundway Hill. The village of Seend has a thriving community and is well known for its many fine period buildings that align The High Street and provides a wide range of amenities including a local store/post office, public houses, a Church, an excellent primary school, playing field, village hall and social club. Seend is about 3 miles west of the historic market town of Devizes and the major centres of Bath, Chippenham and Salisbury are all within a 25 mile radius. Private schools in the locality include Stonar at Atworth, Dauntsey's at West Lavington, St Marys at Calne and Marlborough College.


A long driveway leads off the main road up and alongside the garden until reaching the property and a parking area for a good number of vehicles.

PLEASE NOTE: The driveway also splits off to the wooded copse area where the tourist cabin would be and where the existing new workshop is. This would give privacy to anyone staying over in the holiday cabin.

Planning Consent Granted

Agents Note

Please note some of the images that are used on the details/marketing are computer generated images (CGIs) intended to represent how the property could look if the current planning permission was carried out- i.e this shows the new house design with curved extension and the new barn style double carport with office space above. They are not there at present, other images show the existing dwelling. Equally the image of the cabin is there to show what could be built if the illustrated floorplans were followed.
