Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A superb potential riverside building plot located on the medway overlooking the historic village of Aylesford


The site is tucked away discreetly off the old road which accesses the ancient stone bridge (no longer open to vehicles) straddling the River Medway (which is tidal at this point), and then by a riverbank track, the bank being fringed with mature trees. On the opposite bank is the centre of the picturesque village of Aylesford, Kent, which overlooks the River Medway and features a mixture of period dwellings, restaurant and village inns, together with a view of the 12th Century St. Peters Church. The plot is accessible through a field gate off Station Road, adjacent to the River and a vehicular and pedestrian right of way.
The M20 Junctions 5 and 6 lie approximately 2 miles distant, together with the A229 Bluebell Hill link with the Medway Towns and Maidstone. Aylesford is located about 30 miles from London and Aylesford train station is only 0.6 miles west serving London St. Pancras (67 minutes). East Malling station is about 3 miles away, connecting with London Victoria and the City in approximately 50 minutes.


This unique site lies on the riverbank of the Medway overlooking the historic village of Aylesford and its ancient bridge - one of Kent's most famous beauty spots. The site includes an adapted period stone and brick building - at one time the village forge - which has in recent years been used as a scout hut, together with a nearby timber clad store. Disused for some time, the land is partly paved and vegetated, with peripheral wall and fencing and a pair of steel mesh gates.

The plot has scope for a dramatic contemporary or traditional dwelling (subject to planning) with vehicular access from Station Road and garden overlooking the River Medway, between the riverbank trees. Any future design if permitted, would need to take into account the potential flood issues such as raising the floor level or inserting a flood gate.
