The site measures approximately 1.06 acres, with several mature fruit, nut and native trees, a large area of lawn and a pond.

Alex Cornwallis at BTF Partnership commented: “Located on the edge of the village, this is a unique opportunity to build a modern home on a terrific plot. The popular coastal town of Hythe is six miles away and Ashford, with its high-speed rail link to St Pancras (37 minutes) is only six miles to the west. This is an exciting opportunity for a buyer looking to put their own stamp on an architect designed home which is ready to build.”
