Detailed Planning (Application No. 17/02740/FUL) was granted by Sevenoaks District Council on 18/122017. The red line on the plan is for guidance purpose only and is not suitable for any legal documents. The application is for a new substantial house in place of the existing house but does not specify any need to remove the existing outbuildings, which are substantial and may allow for further planning potential, subject to approval.
Located well back from a country lane, the gardens are extensive, back onto open countryside and incorporate a large pond, swimming pool, stable block and a very substantial outbuilding with games room, WC and store room. There is also a detached garage and workshop
From the High Street in the centre of Cowden head north east along Butterwell Hill and after about ½ mile the drive to the property will be found on the right.
