Rare opportunity to acquire a 4.25 acre site with planning to construct a 3,200 sq ft detached family home in beautiful countryside close to Smarden. Services including mains electricty and private drainage already installed.
The proposed property will blend the traditional Kent style house with a contemporary interior, under floor heating provided by a ground source heating system and electricity provided by solar panels to create an extermely efficient, low cost, low environmental impact house for modern living.
Access to the house from Maltmans Hill has already been created by a large, stone walled turning circle which accesses the already constructed, detached 4 bay garage with climate controlled office above. The driveways have been excavated and built ready to be surfaced.
The house will sit well within the garden curtilage and overlook two wondeful spring fed ponds which have been cleaned out with a weir constructed to control the water level and a pump installed to create a waterfall to oxygenate the water. The ponds are fully stocked with fish and reside within a picturesque bluebell wood. The rear of the house will also overlook open fields and the remaninder of the 4.25 acre site which features a second entrance from Romden Road opening the potenial for equestrian facilities if required.
