A desirable opportunity for you to own an attractive parcel of land within the beautiful village of Marsh Green on the Kent/Surrey border.
This lush, flat pasture land measures 5.09 acres and is enclosed in the main by mature hedgerow and stock proof fence.
The site enjoys good road frontage and was granted planning permission for two stables, a tack room and hay barn – the concrete base for which has already been laid.
Pleasantly situated just south of Edenbridge, the land is less than 24 miles from Central London and, with excellent transport links, offers a real escape to the country.
The land is currently suitable for a range of recreational and amenity uses. Other uses are subject to any relevant planning consents, but it should be noted that planning permission has been granted on several parcels of Green Belt land in the local area for a variety of uses.
The land enjoys extensive road frontage onto Marsh Green Road. Excellent and secure access is provided via a gated entrance to the east that is newly improved and set back from the road. Full vehicular right of way is provided from this entrance to the land via an easement.
The land was granted planning permission for the construction of two stables, a tack room and hay barn in August 2012 under planning reference 12/01550/FUL. The concrete base for this was laid within the 3 year implementation period and lies within Lot A1.
The land is situated within the Metropolitan Green Belt. Notably, the land is outside of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Any development or change of use would be subject to the appropriate permission.
The land is subject to an Overage based on 25% of any uplift in value following the grant of planning permission for development other than that which is for agricultural or equestrian purposes. The Overage period is 20 years from March 2023.
The land is offered for sale by private treaty as a whole or in lots. The freehold is available with vacant possession on completion.
Land values rise by 3% in the last quarter.
Land values continued to rise last year and even managed to outpace inflation, according to the Knight Frank Farmland Index. Following a 3% increase in the last quarter, farmland outperformed other asset classes such as gold, equities and residential property in the past 12 months. Furthermore, the average price of land in this area is 11% higher than the average.
