The site lies just to the north of Laughton on the south side of the B2192 between Ringmer (4 miles) and Halland (1.5 miles) to the east on the A22. Uckfield is 5 miles, the historic town of Lewes with its mainline station and excellent facilities is 6 miles and Eastbourne 15 miles.

A good range of schools, local churches, public houses and recreational facilities are within easy reach.

The existing modern framed buildings lie at the end of a made up private farm drive. "The scheme has been designed so that it takes the appearance of two Sussex style barns looking out over the adjoining farmland, with pitched roofs and varying ridge levels offset from one another (at a slight angle) to have a part courtyard style area between the dwellings. The buildings have been designed with a mix of roof levels with non symmetric antique style roof lights to imitate the roof fenestration of typical Low Weald barns. The idea is that the dwellings would have the look that shows the changes that would have been made to their built form over a long period of time. It is intended to reflect the mix of scale and materials that would exist on a traditional farm with the roof tiles of the two dwellings being plain clay tiles. The brickwork on the dwarf walls will be Flemish brickwork, with oak weatherboarding fixed to an oak frame structure."

Offered for sale separately or together the planning consent allows for:

Plot No. 1 (Drawn @ 3,014 sq ft/280 sq m) The smaller of the two offering spacious entrance hall with cloakroom and wc, open dining/sitting room, through to lounge, study/bedroom 4 and kitchen. On the first floor a galleried landing, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 en-suite).

Plot No. 2 (Drawn @ 3,896 sq ft/362 sq m) A larger dwelling, offering a large entrance hall, wc, large lounge, spacious kitchen and utility and formal dining room. On the first floor a galleried landing, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite).

Outside both will have proposed private gardens and double car ports with lean to rear stores. If the plots are sold separately definitive boundaries between them will be agreed on site. The planning consent also allows for a passing bay in the access track which will be constructed by the Vendor prior to any building works commencing.

(Note: Given areas based on RICS guidelines and not including voids/vaulted areas up from ground floor at first floor level excluding stairs)

The purchaser(s) will connect to the relevant services as are available and install private drainage.

A public footpath passes down the farm access and out onto the farmland along the southern boundary of the site.

Planning consent (WD/2017/1718/F) dated 25th January 2018 permits the demolition of the existing farm buildings and erection of two detached dwellings with car ports. A copy is attached to our online brochure as available on www.planning.wealden. Wealden District Council have confirmed the development is not CIL liable.

Interested parties must take all due care inspecting these open buildings and do so entirely at their own risk and neither the Vendor nor agents accept any liability for any damage. Boots should be worn and ideally children not brought on site and dogs must be kept in cars.
