Self Build Plot For A Barn Renovation in Woodchurch, Kent


Set in a delightful countryside plot less than a mile outside the historical Kent village of Woodchurch, The Hay Barn comes with prior planning approval for the change of use of an agricultural building to a single residential dwelling. The property will benefit from its own private access with parking for multiple vehicles.

Delivering 1,330 sqft of contemporary accommodation, current internal designs are for an open-plan dining area and kitchen with pantry and a large family living room linked via an impressive entrance hallway. Upstairs, plans include a generous master bedroom with ensuite and a further two double bedrooms (one of which is ensuite) and a good-sized family bathroom. The Hay Barn has an approved building pallet which will compliment and stay true to the former agricultural building.

One of the more exciting aspects of this project, in our opinion, is the large wrap-around garden. To the rear of the west boundary fence, plans are in place for an area dedicated to biodiversity enhancement to include the planting of wild flowers and fruit trees, all overlooking an existing pond, which is perfect for nature lovers. Beyond this are far-reaching views of tranquil countryside. To the north of the property there is an additional sizeable parcel of land with pond and great potential for an orchard, kitchen garden or wild meadow.

Full details of the planning consent can be found at NOT/2023/0696.

The plot presents the opportunity to design and manage the construction of your dream home.

If required we can recommend architects, planning consultants plus a number of reputable, local contractors to quote on any required works. Most of our self-build buyers choose to work with a main contractor on a fixed-price build contract, with monthly payments in arrears and all works are overseen by a qualified chartered surveyor.

Full planning drawings are available on request and please note that site visits are available strictly by appointment only.
