Opportunity to build a stunning individual home in a beautiful semi-rural position in the Greenbelt and within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of Royal Tunbridge Wells. Planning Permission granted for a contemporary style house, of approximately 4800 sq. ft. set within glorious farmland with far reaching views.
Great Bayhall Barn is a derelict farm building, with consent granted to build a spacious “Grand Designs” style home. The consented planning permission is to remove two disused Atcost barns and replace them with an exceptional family home, arranged over two levels, embracing an ultra-contemporary design with large open plan spaces and extensive glazing, taking advantage of the beautiful views. This wonderful opportunity to create your own unique and generous home, has the added advantage of being situated in the countryside, set within rolling farmland fields. The plot is incredibly secluded, situated down a private lane, yet close to the popular village of Pembury, which is just under half a mile away, and itself on the eastern edge of Tunbridge Wells, popular for its beautiful architecture and extensive amenities.
Consent has been granted for a contemporary style, 5 bedroom home, totalling 4854 with two further roof terraces totalling 613 sq. ft. On the ground floor there will be an entrance hall, extensive open plan kitchen/dining area with pantry and sitting areas at both ends, a large drawing room, a TV snug, cloakroom, and utility room. There are also two bedrooms on this floor, which could alternatively be used as home study spaces. On the upper level are two further, generous bedrooms, one of which is the master suite with his and hers walk in dressing rooms and en suite bathrooms. The second bedroom on this level also has an en suite bathroom and private stairs down to its own separate living area, or further bedroom, depending on individual requirements. Both bedrooms on this floor have private balconies on which to enjoy the wonderful setting.
The landscaping schme is agreed as that which was submitted to TWBC on 19th December 2019.
The plot is situated down a long private drive, just a few minutes drive from the centre of Pembury village. Pembury is a very popular village with local shopping facilities, primary school, doctor's surgery, library, pharmacy and a Tesco supermarket. The historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells is just three miles distant and offers excellent leisure and commercial facilities, a mainline station to London and strong state and independent secondary school options, including those in the sought-after Kent Grammar system. The bustling town of Paddock Wood is under 5 miles away and also has a comprehensive range of amenities and its own mainline station, with fast and frequent trains to Central London. There is easy access onto the M25 via the A21 which is only one mile away from the property. The impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is within 40 minutes' drive and if you want to escape to the lovely south coast, then the beaches can be reached within an hour.
