Prior Barn and Lavender Cottage, Kenward Road, Nr Yalding, Kent, ME18
Two detached properties for conversion, with amazing views, located in a quiet private position a short walk from Yalding. The sites are prepared with building regulations approved ready for an immediate start.
Price £400,000 (completed circa £900,000, conversion cost circa £250,000)
A detached Victorian brick built barn with an attached Atcost barn with prior approval for the change of use from agricultural to residential. The substantial building is in an elevated position and enjoys extensive views over open farmland and the Medway Valley beyond.
Prior Barn is accessed through a south facing courtyard enclosed by the property on three sides. Plans show an attractive, interesting and flexible layout set over two floors and with floor space of 3953ft2
This is a fairly straightforward conversion, the existing brick structure is sound and will not require underpinning. The roof timbers are also in good condition. The Atcost will be reduced in size effectively making this part of the property newbuild.
The hub of the property is a large open plan kitchen which leads through to a spacious dining area then to a living room with an open fire and full height south facing windows.
To the other end of the kitchen there is a utility room with wet room, ideal for washing the dogs after a walk in the surrounding countryside.
There is also a study and across the hallway from the kitchen is a downstairs cloakroom and a large family room.
On the first floor are five bedrooms, three with ensuite bathrooms, with an additional bathroom serving the other two bedrooms. They are accessed by two different flights of stairs.
Externally there will be gardens to the side, rear and front with various parking options for several vehicles. In all about ¼ acre.
Price £225,000 (completed cica £375,000, conversion cost circa £75,000)
A masonry constructed building most recently used as the farm office. It has prior approval as with the barn and is sited below it with the same uninterrupted views across Medway valley.
Approval is for a two bedroom property of 1466ft2, bathroom and open plan kitchen / living room. This will open out through trifold patio doors onto the patio terrace area with that amazing south facing view.
Externally there is also parking for two cars and garden areas to the side and to the rear below the terrace.
There is already water laid to Prior Barn and pipes laid to the boundary of Lavender Cottage from the road.
A temporary electrical building supply is connected which will eventually be split for the two properties.
There is a recently installed treatment plant below Lavender Cottage which both properties will be permitted to connect to.
Planning Application Number 15/505598/PNQCLA, Maidstone Borough Council.
