An exciting opportunity to buy a rural building plot, set at the end of a long drive, enjoying a plot of approximately 2.2 acres (including a paddock) and full consents to provide a detached four bedroom family home of approximately 200m2 with a lovely outlook across its own land and the valley beyond. NO CHAIN. Viewings only by prior appointment.
A frequently sought and seldom found opportunity has arisen, whereby the owners of Northover have obtained planning consents to remove their former stables, pole barn and chicken shed to turn them into a separate detached residential dwelling.
The former stables will be sold off with their consents to provide a detached, modern barn-style property, providing four bedrooms, an en-suite to the master bedroom, family bathroom, utility room and cloakroom, plus a large open plan and vaulted main living space, comprising a kitchen and dining/living room.
Externally, the property is located away from the land and neighbouring farm and house, set in amongst approximately 2.2 acres of paddock and grounds, and enjoys a Southerly aspect, with views across the valley beyond.
Some services are connected to the original house, Northover, and will have to be installed at the new dwelling, and visaversa. The drainage is to be a private system. There is no mains gas. Any heating will have to be renewable/electric, or tanked oil/calor gas.
More planning drawings and information can be obtained via Wealden Council’s website: www.planning.wealden.gov.uk under ref: WD/2017/0531/F
