BUILDING PLOT WITH PLANNING CONSENT
Overview:
A unique and exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a building plot of approximately 2.1 acres with the finest views in the county, sitting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which importantly includes hard won approved planning consent to build a contemporary, ground breaking and architecturally significant 5 bedroom detached Eco House, designed by the renowned and much lauded architect Sir Terry Farrell.

The current owners have moved the design and build plan forward substantially in the last 12 months, making thoughtful changes that will save any prospective purchaser a large amount of preparatory build time and cost. This exciting project provides the chance to build a stunning and breath-taking dream home designed by a leading architect with outstanding panoramic rural views across the Tiese Valley and presents the added plus of being situated within the Cranbrook School Catchment Area.

Opportunities of this nature in such a desirable location are incredibly rare. It is apparent from the plans that this new 'statement grand design' building of approximately 3500 sq. ft. (not including terraces) has the potential to set a new standard in house building whilst providing a magical and calm living space to be enjoyed now and for generations come. Vision on this scale is rarely seen and very elusive, but should be greatly applauded as it allows the owner to be the curator of their very own bespoke lifestyle in a grand space that combines artistic flair with ground breaking design, framing the landscape in the process through the feature windows and magnificent terraces.
