Lytlewood & Russettings

Hildenborough, Kent

Site Description The site measures approximately 3.1 acres, consisting of plots for three luxurious executive styled detached properties located in the exclusive village of Hildenborough. The site currently has two existing houses, Lytlewood and Russettings, both of which are 1.5 storey, detached dwellings, dating from c1930s. The existing buildings are built from white rendered bricks with steep pitched roofs, bay windows and gabled dormers. The properties are set back from the main highway, behind mature trees and vegetation. The properties are accessed via individual, private driveways off Riding Lane. Lytlewood also benefits from a tranquil pond/lake which is enclosed by natural woodland. Apart from the dwellings, there are a number of outbuildings and poly-tunnels that are scattered across the rear gardens of the dwellings. To the North of the site is circa 2.1 acres of woodland. This attractive arboretum of fine specimen trees is available for purchase separately, in individual lots or as a whole. The sale of the land will be subject to a restrictive covenant to maintain its current use. Location The site is ideally situated 1.2 miles from the centre of Hildenborough village, with its local amenities, including church, village hall, pubs and local theatre, The Oast. The site is 1.8 miles from Hildenborough Station, which offers a service to London Bridge taking from 28 minutes. Alternatively, Tonbridge Station is also only 3.8 miles from the site. There are a number of excellent private and state schools in the locality, including Sevenoaks School, Tonbridge School, Tunbridge Wells Girls Grammer. Venues for leisure activities include Nizels Golf Club, which also has a private health/fitness centre. Slightly further afield are Wildernesse and Knole golf clubs. Alternatively, the Squash Club is located at Tonbridge School.

The consent, Ref: 23/01372/FL proposes to demolish the two existing properties, along with their associated outbuildings and erect three new replacement, 2.5 storey dwellings, with access roads off Riding Lane. The three proposed dwellings will be 5 bedroom detached properties, with plots 1 and 3 benefitting from integral double garages and plot 2 a detached double garage. The existing driveways are to be retained and upgraded, with the driveway serving Russettings to be extended to provide access to the additional, infill property.
