A development opportunity with planning consented to build 6 detached houses of over 2000 sq. ft. and additional permission to significantly extend an existing dwelling on the site.
Mayfield View Development Site is situated at the end of Newick Lane, just outside the small village of Broad Oak and larger market town of Heathfield. The site consists of 2.5 acres, and is set entirely within a High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its position behind established hedging thereby creates a secluded setting with far reaching views overlooking woodland, pastureland and neighbouring farms.
Planning permission has been granted by Wealden District Council (reference: WD/2017/2957/F ) to build six 4-bedroom properties within the 2.5 acre plot. The sympathetic development incorporates a range of external designs, and will offer between 2,100 sq.ft. and 2200 sq. ft. of extremely well-configured living accommodation, comfortably meeting the needs of today’s modern family. Each home will feature a generous hallway, open plan kitchen / diner, separate living room, study, utility and WC on the ground floor, with 4 bedrooms, 2 of which will have en-suite bathrooms and a further family bathroom on the first floor. Each will be set within a plot of between approximately 0.2 and 0.3 acres and will benefit from a private driveway, double garage and glorious countryside views.
The external appeal of each house has been well thought through to be sympathetic with existing dwellings in the area, and accordingly the houses will have a traditional brick construction, some with kent tile peg upper elevations, and lead scalloped windows.
Mayfield View is set just outside the village of Broad Oak with its general stores and Post Office. The neighbouring town of Heathfield has two large supermarkets, a Tesco Express and a number of shops, restaurants and cafes. The vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells lies 9 miles to the north and has an array of well-regarded restaurants, a choice of supermarkets, extensive shopping, independent outlets and leisure facilities. The bustling town of Brighton is only 15 miles distant and the wonderful south coast beaches are within easy reach. Schooling in the area is excellent: there is a well-regarded pre-school and primary school in Broad Oak, community colleges in Heathfield and Wadhurst, whilst the Bricklehurst Manor, Skippers Hill and St Leonards Mayfield schools offer excellent preparatory choices. Transport links are also strong: Stonegate station is just under 5 miles away and this offers mainline services to London Cannon Street, and London Charing Cross, via London Waterloo East and London Bridge, all in about 1 hour 15 minutes. The A21 with its access to the M25 is about 15 minutes away.
