The opportunity to secure a large Kent barn plus outbuilding with full planning consent on a 3.6 acre plot.

The approved plans for the barn deliver the opportunity to create a modern layout but one that oozes character. Some of the original oak beams have been incorporated into the design along with a charming courtyard accessed off the kitchen/diner and day room. Upstairs are 5 generous bedrooms and 4 bathrooms with each side connected via a walkway over the vaulted entrance hall.

The west-facing views to the rear are stunning as shown on the gallery photo while the outbuilding offers a range of options including home office, garaging, gym, etc.

The Kent barn is the principle unit in a collection of charming farm buildings, all of which have full planning permission to convert to residential. On the site plan below it is identified as the Old Kent Barn and the plot includes the area bordered in blue. Full details can be found under planning reference 22/01422/FULL with Tunbridge Wells Borough Council. A leading, local developer has purchased the site and will be renovating the other units.

This plot can be taken on as a pure self-build or we can introduce a preferred contractor to deliver the house to an agreed specification if required. Stamp duty is only payable on the plot purchase.

*The guide build cost of £975,000 is an initial estimate to construct the barn to a turnkey finish provided by one of our preferred, local contractors.
