PLANNING PERMISSION GRANTED BY SEVENOAKS DISTRICT COUNCIL
We are thrilled that we’ve received full planning permission from Sevenoaks District Council for this former school house in Underriver near Sevenoaks. Since it was converted into a residential property in the late seventies, it has undergone various additions and refurbishments and consequently the house has a combination of styles. As well as an interesting history, this property is located on a generous plot with views of the local church and green fields beyond. The concept behind the approved scheme was to optimise the internal space to make the most of the surrounding views. The main change has been to the kitchen area where the space has been increased by removing a staircase and rotating the position of the kitchen units and appliances. The extra space has allowed for a set of double doors to lead out to a generous outdoor seating area. There is also a large picture window on the adjacent wall to take in the views of the church and the fields. Upstairs the layout has been altered to allow for three good sized bedrooms with ensuites better suited to modern living and making better use of a redundant mezzanine area.
