Self build plot for a barn replacement in Woodchurch, Kent


Located less than a mile outside the picturesque village of Woodchurch, the Old Dairy comes with full planning consent for the demolition of the existing agricultural buildings and the erection of a contemporary 2,979 sqft residential dwelling. The property, designed by Kent Design Studio, will have its own private access with the driveway providing off street parking for a number of vehicles.

The dwelling is comprised of two separate elements accessed via a glazed link between the two and will be of a contemporary barn style design and appearance in keeping with its agricultural origins. The single storey is dedicated to day-to-day living and incorporates a large open plan kitchen, dining area and living room. Adjacent to this, plans are for a study and utility/boot room with its own separate entrance. A number of roof lights, large glazed windows and corner bi-folds will ensure this area will benefit from ample natural light.

The two storey element includes five double bedrooms (including a spacious principal bedroom complete with fireplace, ensuite and dressing area), large family bathroom, as well ample storage.

Stretching the full width of the property, the patio will enjoy a view over the secluded west facing garden, enclosed with native hedgerow on both sides. Lying adjacent to the rear boundary fence is an existing pond, with plans for an area dedicated to biodiversity enhancement to include wildflowers and fruit trees, which in our opinion is one of the many highlights of this exciting project. Beyond this are far-reaching views across beautiful neighbouring countryside.

Full details of the planing consent can be found under reference 21/02220/AS.

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.
