Planning consent for new build house in Kent
AFL recently acquired a site in Kent, and we have now secured planning for a new build 1,700 square foot house on the plot. The house will be respect the immediate C19th surrounding cottages, with elevations detailed in Kentish ragstone and timber.
At ground floor a rear ‘extension’ is clad in a silver weathered timber, complementing the tones of the ragstone. Three bedrooms are provided at first floor, with a generous master suite at second floor. The master suite has juliette balconies overlooking Mote Park and Mote House to the rear. Mote Park is a landscaped public park, previously the grounds of a large country estate. The original Mote House was a tudor mansion, which was demolished in 1793 and rebuilt in brick and stone around 1800, this Georgian house still stands today. The adjacent ragstone cottages to the proposed house were originally workers cottages for Mote House.
The site is just outside the village of Bearsted, which lies on the edge of the Kent Downs AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
