Enjoying what are perhaps some of the finest views in Mayfield, Pond House (formerly Flower Place) looks out across the Rother Valley, and provides a house/building plot with planning permission to be demolished and rebuilt, or suitable for refurbishment or similar at your discretion, with full planning and building regulations approval for a 2,800 sq.ft house over three floors, all designed to make the most of the views, whilst being central yet located on a quiet, single track lane within the centre of the village. EPC Rating: D. NO CHAIN.

This is a rather unique opportunity to purchase an existing house, which now requires extensive modernisation, but also has the benefit of planning permission to replace the house with a much larger property of a similar design, but to include an additional floor, renewable energy supply and garaging.

At present, the house comprises a hallway, utility room, kitchen, sitting room and a dining room, four bedrooms, en-suite and bathroom.

The property presents brick and weatherboarded and tile hung elevations beneath a tiled roof. The house now needs extensive modernisation and refurbishment both inside and out.

The planning permission, under ref WD/2022/provides an option to knock down and rebuild Flower Place with a house of approximately 2,800 sq.ft, in a similar style and moving the house slightly backwards in its plot, and adding a lower ground floor area, as well as increasing the over all footprint and adding a sensational upper ground floor raised terrace and entertaining area, and an attached garage.

The plot totals around 1/3 of an acre, with extensive views out across the Rother Valley beyond, and direct access to footpaths, plus easy access to the centre of the Village.

Full planning documentation is available upon request, and three tenders received by the owners will also be made available. Build costs, for a top end build to include a lift, were tendered between £850,000 and £900,000. The estimated end value will be circa £1,750,000.

Location:

The property is situated in The Avenue, a narrow little lane right in the centre of the village, just yards from the High Street and all the amenities on offer.

The 16th Century beauty of Mayfield High Street offers a range of day to day facilities including a small supermarket, post office, butcher, baker, pharmacy, florist, greengrocers and deli as well as GP surgery, dentist and hairdressers. There are also a couple of cafes and Period Inns, including the renowned Middle House Hotel. There are pretty churches of various denominations, a flourishing primary school and the well regarded Mayfield School secondary school.

These provide a fast and regular service to London Charing Cross, London Bridge and Canon Street. There is a regular bus service to Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne.
