Full property description

A rare opportunity to take over the completion of an exciting development project, set within approximately 5.12 acres, in one of East Kent's most beautiful and secluded locations. Formerly two timber-framed cottages, originally built for wood cutters serving the Mount Ephraim Estate & woodland, Acorn Cottage has since been combined into one detached three storey house and significantly extended to approximately 3800 sq. ft. The current construction position is all the structural works have been completed and the shell is watertight just leaving the internal fitout to be completed.

Furthermore, the structure of the property has been significantly improved during the first phase of its development, including new foundations and traditional brick and blockwork to the lower floors, whilst on the upper floor they have kept the original timber frame (this has been chemically treated for wood rot) then they built a second timber wall and tile hung the outside.

The end result is an attractive yet traditionally styled exterior, ready for someone to come in and complete the interior to their own bespoke design and specification. The property could also be further enhanced with the addition of a garage block, comprising a two bay garage, a plant room and a first floor storage area and office. Architects plans have been drawn up for this, but not submitted for planning.

The site is not served by mains gas, however a power and water supply have both been laid on to the site, along with a Kingspan Klargester for treatment of waste water and a rainwater harvest system has been set up to supply water to the toilet flushes and the outside taps, ensuring superb water conservation.

There are two gated entrances to the site, which provide both security and a high degree of seclusion, whilst the property is surrounded by open fields and rolling countryside on one side and beautiful ancient woodlands to the remaining three sides.

The property is situated in an exceptionally private and secluded woodland setting, yet within easy reach of Faversham, Canterbury & Whitstable.

AGENT'S NOTE: The EPC rating is taken from an historic EPC which was carried out prior to the works which the current owner has completed at the property.
