Greystone, Bannister Hill, Borden
Greystone presents a prime development opportunity to purchase a substantial detached house situated in a highly sought after and prestigious location, within a secluded plot of approximately 0.83 acres, with full planning consent to build two, five bedroom detached houses within the grounds (Planning Ref: 20/500051/FULL).
Greystone was built in 1978 and is a fine example of the architecture of that time, with light, airy rooms, generous proportions and over 2000 sq. ft of accommodation, arranged in an extremely practical layout. However, the property is now in need of some updating, which naturally offers an opportunity to renovate this property, as well as develop the two additional properties within the grounds.
The property is entered via a central entrance hall, with a useful cloakroom/WC, an exposed brick feature wall and a hardwood staircase to the first floor. A door leads to a huge open plan sitting room and dining room with an impressive triple aspect. The sitting room has an exposed brick wall with a fireplace, whilst the dining room has a lovely parquet floor and is slightly raised above the sitting room, helping to clearly define these two spaces.
Adjacent to the sitting room, there is a study and to the rear of the house, there is a spacious, open plan kitchen/breakfast room with a walk-in larder. Whilst this is in need of complete renovation, it is a great size kitchen and offers plenty of scope for improvement. In addition to the kitchen, there is a large utility room, which leads to the double garage. However, the plans allow for the current garage to be taken down and re-sited, to provide an access road to the two new houses at the rear of the plot.
Upstairs, there are four generously proportioned double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a dual aspect, ample fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.
In addition to the main house, the planning consent allows for the construction of two, detached three storey houses, both with integral garaging and driveways. Each house features five bedrooms, four bathrooms and modern, open plan living spaces on the ground floor, however it is possible that this internal layout could be altered, if required.
The property sits within a generous plot of around 0.83 acres and is set back from the road by a grand sweeping driveway which leads to the main house and the double garage. The plot extends beyond the house and is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs and enjoys a particularly high degree of privacy.
The beautiful, ancient village of Borden is centred around a Grade l Listed church which dates back to 1210 AD. There is also a primary school (rated as outstanding), a large recreation ground, the popular Maypole Inn and enjoys direct access to the surrounding countryside. The highly respected Highsted, Borden and Fulston Manor grammar and secondary schools are close by, whilst nearby Sittingbourne offers a range of shopping, leisure and recreational amenities, including swimming pool and various golf courses nearby. The town has a mainline railway station with a regular connection to London Victoria in approx. one hour. The village is also conveniently located in between Canterbury, Maidstone and Medway.
Highsted Valley is a beautiful location bordering the neighbouring village of Rodmersham on the outskirts of Sittingbourne. Rodmersham is an old village dating back to 1100 AD with a beautiful village green, where there is a primary school and a popular pub/restaurant, The Fruiterers Arms. There is also a cricket club, a squash court, gym and a bistro caf/village store.
The village of Teynham is approx. 3 miles away. It benefits from having a local train station offering routes through to London and the coast. The surrounding countryside is mainly fruit orchards and it is close to the hamlet of Conyer, which has its own Quay. The village benefits from many local shops and a library.
The charming nearby market town of Faversham offers a wide range of high street shops and independent retailers which adorn its attractive high street and its bustling market square. The town also offers excellent leisure facilities with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a cinema, a large park and recreation ground, a museum and numerous pubs and restaurants.
It has a good selection of primary schools and two secondary schools, one of which is the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. Faversham has a mainline railway station with a regular service to London Victoria, Cannon Street and Charing Cross and a high speed rail link to London St. Pancras. The nearby M2 motorway gives excellent and fast access to London which is approximately 49 miles, the Cathedral City of Canterbury (approx. 16 miles away) and the Kent coast.
