Great Chart Golf Course offers a purely one of a kind opportunity that will appeal to leaders of industry and potentially elevate the site into a Flagship development within this rural area. The site does not retain any golf course use, instead converting the site in to a natural landscape and habitat of a character and appearance matching the surrounding countryside. Full planning permission was granted in October 2017 (please refer to Ashford Borough Council Planning Portal for all information Planning Ref: 17/00469) for the construction of a substantial family home (Plot 3 on the plans) The accommodation design comprises, sitting room, family room, dining area, living room, study, kitchen, utility room, cloakroom large entrance hall to the ground floor. To the first floor there are five bedrooms, four with en suites and a family bathroom. To the second floor there is loft storage and a cinema/games room. Additionally, connected to the side of the property there is triple garage with an annex above. The outline planning consent will potentially enable a developer to add their own style to the properties. There is an absolute vision of a bespoke collection of properties of exceptional quality within generous grounds, set amongst an expansive, native park land setting.

The site is located centrally between Hothfield to the north, Great Chart to the east, Bethersden to the south west, and Pluckley to the north west. It is located in a countryside setting but is largely enclosed by surrounding features, both man-made and natural. To the east the site is bound by Bear's Lane whilst the southern boundary is marked by the raised bank/railway line. Beyond Bear's Lane is Bear's Lane Wood whilst the far side of the railway is occupied by the Great Chart Leisure Complex. The south west boundary of the site meets with Newlands Wood while the north west edge of the site meets with agricultural fields. These villages all comprise a variety of public services and amenities including schools, post offices, convenience stores, churches, pubs, sports facilities and child care. It is well located for connecting to the wider transport network; by car, the M20 is 8 minutes away, Ashford International station - regular services to London (38 minutes) and Europe - is 11 minutes away.
