Well this is not your average listing!!

MILES AND BARR are pleased to be offering a parcel of land set on Crete Road West with beautiful views over to France!

The plot is approximately 15 x 15 sq/m and occupies a spot off the road in beautiful surroundings and with gorgeous elevated views from its highest point. The plot is also set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is set opposite the North Downs Way walking path.

Accessed via a ladder, the bunker is a Royal Observation Corps Monitoring Post built by the MOD in 1971. It was apparently the last one built of over 1500 in the UK and it is very rare for one of these bunkers to have main road access and a driveway, as well as to remain in such good structural condition. None of the original interior fixtures and fittings remain, but the bunker stays dry with a reasonable ambient temperature year round despite the weather outside.

The property has a gated driveway and can accommodate around 6 cars. This piece of land could be an ideal place to pull up the motor home and enjoy the view!

Around 1 metre from the perimeter, there is a mains water man hole, where there is the potential to connect a water supply and also there is an un-tested BT line to the bunker, which may be possible to reactivate. (both with relevant plannings and regulations)

The owner has informed us that under permitted development, you can increase the height of the fencing on 3 sides, and increase the width of the gateway as desired. Also, you can potentially put a shed up to 15sqm on site under permitted development, but we advise you seek further advice on this matter.

The site is totally unique and does not come around every day, with potential to use as a bolt hole for camping/motorhome holidays or even potential on the land for a holiday home, subject to relevant planning.
