A rare development opportunity for 7 residential units on the edge of a popular semi-rural village
The site is located on the western side of the village of Staple and is accessed directly from The Street. Nearby Wingham (less than 2 miles away) benefits from a wide range of local facilities, including a primary school (rated “Good” by OFSTED), several public houses, doctor’s surgery, and several shops, including the popular Gibsons Farm Shop located on the Adisham Road. Canterbury (9 miles) has a full range of shopping, leisure, and educational facilities with schools for all ages and abilities in both the state and private sector. Canterbury also benefits from a mainline train station, offering a high-speed train service to London St. Pancras, taking 56 minutes. Access to the Continent is available via the Eurostar service from Ashford (22 miles) and via the ferry from the Port of Dover (13 miles). The A2 is accessed via the Adisham Road, which is approximately 6 miles from the site. Regular bus services run through the village.
Previously forming the car park and garden to The Three Tuns public house, the plot extends to approximately 0.39 hectares (0.96 acres). There is a small building on site which was previously used as guest accommodation. The site is bound to the north by a mature tree line, to the east by the existing residential dwellings and overlooks farmland and woodland to the south and west.
The consented scheme comprises a mixture of 2, 3 and 4 bedroomed dwellings with an incredibly low density, providing the purchaser with the opportunity to vary the planning consent if desired. The design of the units is contemporary, whilst still blending with the local vernacular. Once constructed the properties will have a light and spacious feel. Please see the schedule of accommodation, which confirms a total gross floor area of 812 sq. m. (8,754 sq. ft.).
The property is connected to mains electricity and mains water. We have been informed that mains drainage and gas are located within The Street to the front of the site. None of these services have been checked or tested.
Any plans contained within these particulars are indicative only and the property will be sold in accordance with the registered title. Interested parties are to satisfy themselves with the physical boundaries on-site.
