Residential site of about 0.3 of an acre, considered to offer development potential, subject to the necessary consents, on a private road within half a mile of Sevenoaks station 5 Woodside Road comprises a plot of about 0.3 of an acre with a single detached dwelling in poor condition. The property is considered to offer superb scope for replacement/ development, subject to the necessary consents. The current house is a single storey property with attached garage, amounting to about 1137 sq ft including the garage/store. We do not believe the property has been extended in the last 40 years. It is set back from the road with parking to the front. The garden lies primarily to the south side of the house and is currently overgrown with mostly rhododendron bushes. There are three Beech trees on the road side boundary that have preservation orders on them. The property is not in a conservation area. There is a historic covenant from 1871 limiting the number of dwelling houses that can be built on each plot and interested parties may want to investigate the validity/implications of this.
