An exceptional opportunity to acquire a large garden plot with full planning consent (some planning conditions already discharged) to build a fabulous five bedroom five bathroom family home in a delightful position in this popular private park


Consent has been established for a substantial detached modern five bedroom family home of about 4,036sq ft on an attractive rectangular level garden plot of about three quarters of an acre with mature trees to the boundaries, nestled in a delightful position within this exclusive and sought after private park. The proposed dwelling is designed to a very high standard in a modern style with features to compliment the local Sussex vernacular. Outside the proposed scheme allows for an integral double garage, plentiful parking and areas of lawned garden with sitting out areas.

Full planning consent was granted by Wealden District Council on 10th November 2017, application reference WD/2017/2079/F.

The Vendors have since made a successful application to discharge Planning Conditions 3 (relating to materials) and 4 (relating to landscaping) and have obtained a Plans Approval Certificate for Building Control. The Vendor has also had the thermal (SAP) calculations and water use calculations produced to satisfy Part G and Part L of the building regulations.

The consent is potentially subject to SANGS/SAMMS and CIL payments. Planning documentation and further information is available upon request from Samuel & Son.

The property enjoys an enviable and secluded location within the grounds of the private Maresfield Park Estate. The village of Maresfield offers a village store, post office, primary school, inn, parish church and recreation ground, tennis club and village cricket club.

Buxted station is a little closer and is on the same line. Alternatively Haywards Heath station is about 10 miles and provides services to London Victoria.

The property is close to the main A22 and A26 roads providing easy access to surrounding towns and the national motorway network. Tunbridge Wells with its excellent modern shopping centre is about 14 miles to the north whilst the coastal towns of Brighton and Eastbourne are 22 and 26 miles distant respectively to the south.
