Gordon Miller Property Consultants are delighted to offer you the chance to purchase this detached home that is situated within the sought-after village of Lyminge and is positioned on a ‘double plot’, where planning had previously been granted for an additional dwelling. This house, which has not been on the market for sale for many years, benefits from beautiful views over the countryside and enjoys a garden that is approximately 150’ in depth. The village of Lyminge is very sought-after, which is due to the fact that it benefits from local shops and amenities and the well-regarded Lyminge Church of England Primary School (rated as Outstanding in 2018) adds to the appeal for families. For those looking to commute, the Sandling train station is around a 10 minute drive away and trains can take you to London St Pancras in just 53 minutes. You can reach the coast in around 15 minutes and Canterbury can take a similar time when cutting through the countryside and joining Stone Street. The property has huge ‘potential’ and whilst this is a word that is frequently used by estate agents it truly is the case with this rare opportunity. There is the room for an extension, the loft could be converted, and you also have the plot to the side which previously had Outline Planning, which was renewed but now has lapsed (not that we envisage any issues in gaining permission again). This is a rare chance for you to buy a ‘blank canvas’ in order to create your ideal home in what is one of Kent’s most sought-after villages. Although we will entertain discussions with Property Developers, we have clear instructions that this is not a ‘Subject to Planning’ transaction and as such the property is being sold on a subject to contract basis. We are excited at the opportunity this property brings and we are confident that if you have vision and the willingness to take on a project you will see that this house is a rarity and as such it should not be missed.

Outline Planning Permission for a single detached dwelling in the land to the side was granted in 2007 (Y07/0316/SH). A further successful application was made in 2010 to extend the time of the planning (Y10/0388/SH). We estimate that the size of the dwelling would be in the region of 1,300 sq ft and an access was created between the original house and the proposed new dwelling. We believe there is the potential for a further two units (pair of semi-detached bungalows) in the rear garden that would share the same new access. However, we are not Planning Consultants and are not qualified to provide planning advice. Furthermore, we have clear instructions to sell the property as it stands and therefore this is not a Subject to Planning transaction.
