Exciting residential conversion opportunity to acquire a 3 bay garage, with planning permission for a 3-double bedroom house. The property is set in a 1/4 of established gardens, close to Speldhurst and Bidborough.

The property was built 18 years ago as a triple garage, with annexe above, and constucted in twin block cavity walls with insulation throughout anticipating a conversion to a residential property.

The property is offered to market with plumbing / electrics and full central heating system, including a 2,500 litre oil tank, already in place. This is an exciting opportunity for the new owner to create a stunning home with the opportunity to extend further to the rear, subject to planning permission.

The current plans are for a 3-double bedroom house, with a kitchen/diner and living room on the ground floor to provide approximately 1200 sq ft of accommodation. Further to this, there is a 144 sq ft summer house of timber frame construction, which could be converted to a home office.

The property is situated on a plot extending to circa 1/4 acre. The front is landscaped to include a pond and the summer house/home office with generous parking space on a tarmac drive. To the rear there is a patio, shed, greenhouse, vegetable garden and a generous lawn with orchard in an elevated position with far-reaching views over Speldhurst.

Positioned on a quiet lane in a rural position, yet close to Tunbridge Wells, it offers beautiful views over the Bidborough Ridge and surrounding countryside. Both local villages are easily accessible on foot via a foot path or lane, with each having a primary school, community shop and village pubs, one being an award, winning gastro pub.

The property is set in the High Weald area of outstanding natural beauty and has many local attractions, including Hever Castle, Penshurst Place, Groombridge Place, and a wealth of National Trust properties in the area.
