North Kent development opportunity

Rural development opportunity in North Kent to create five separate five bedroom residential units.

BTF is offering for sale a rural development opportunity to create five separate five bedroom residential units in the heart of the North Kent Downs. Whitehill Oast is situated three miles from Faversham to the north of the village of Selling along a quiet country lane. Offers are invited in the region of £750,000 on a private treaty basis.

The large detached Oast is less than one mile from Selling village centre and dates from the late 19th century originally having been built as a four kiln oast in 1892.

Residential consent was granted in Swale Borough Council under planning reference 14/503628/FULL for five almost identical units measuring over 1,850ft². Each unit will be arranged over three floors with five bedrooms, three bathrooms, kitchen/dining/living area, utility and cloakroom. Off road parking and landscaped gardens are also included within the approved scheme.

Alex Cornwallis from BTF comments: “There are very few rural building projects of this scale left in the county and with the chance to build five, five bedroom dwellings this should provide an excellent opportunity for a developer to acquire a respectable return on their investment. The conversion is unusual for an Oast as the first floor height coincides with that of the existing dryer floor, which will result in less structural work. The sheer size and grandeur of the building itself is not something you will come across very often in the heart of the North Kent Downs”
