A rare opportunity to build an architect-designed 5 bedroom contemporary new home on a 0.4 acre plot located off a private drive in a popular residential area, well-placed for schools.
Derwent Drive is tucked-away off Culverden Down, a popular residential area on the northern side of Tunbridge Wells, neighbouring Rose Hill School and about a mile from the town centre.
The plot at Swiss Cottage extends to about 0.4 acres and occupies the north west corner of the site which has been split into two between the existing property and the proposed new-build which will comprise two storeys and a basement, plus a single storey double garage with a glazed link.
The design has been prepared by the award winning London-based Minifie Architects to a contemporary specification to sit well within the landscape of the site and with the benefit of sustainable features.
The siting of the proposed new house maximises the south-facing aspect and natural light and has allowed for the integration of solar cells in the glazing as a sustainable energy contribution.
The material selected for the new house consists of a thin, light brown/grey brick on the top portion and PPC aluminium cladding on the lower with grey metal window frames.
