Superb development opportunity in Bepton


Jackson-Stops & Staff are offering a superb development opportunity with existing planning consents in an exceptional countryside setting at the foot of the South Downs in Bepton.

Hopkiln is a Victorian detached house with a separate studio and barn, all in need of full refurbishment.

The current owners have obtained planning consent to demolish the existing building and construct an elegant new house linked to the existing barn, which has consent to be converted into a fantastic living space.

The consent also includes the construction of a car barn and improvements to the access into the property.

The existing house comprises: large kitchen/living room, study, downstairs bathroom, four bedrooms, outbuilding/studio, beautiful views over open country and to the South Downs, well stocked mature gardens, many specimen plants/shrubs, swimming pool (now disused) and period barn. In all about 0.85 acres (0.34 hectares).

The proposed house comprises: entrance hall, drawing room, library/dining room, study, cloakroom, master bedroom with dressing room and bathroom en-suite, and two double bedrooms with shower rooms en-suite.

Linked to the main house would be the proposed barn conversion, comprising: large, full height kitchen/breakfast room, boot room, pantry, laundry room, mezzanine sitting room, double bedroom with shower room en-suite, two further bedrooms and two further shower rooms.

Outside, there is consent for a two-bay car barn with storage above and incorporating a bike store and bin store

Hopkiln is situated on the rural fringes of the downland village of Bepton and lies in gardens with a fine array of mature trees and the potential for delightful views from all compass points.

Extensive landscaping would compliment many of the trees and shrubs already in the garden and the property could be dramatically enhanced, complementing its setting.

Guide Price £1,275,000.
