The former Fox and Hounds public house sits on a plot extending to 0.129 hectares and is being offered for sale with the benefit of full planning permission for the demolition of the public house and the construction of six semi-detached houses.

Located on the main road through the village of Darenth and with excellent transport connections with the M25 and A2, this development represents an ideal opportunity to acquire a prime residential site.


Detailed planning permission was granted on the 15th December 2016 (ref.16/01120/FUL) (subject to signing of the S106 Agreement) for the demolition of the former public house building and the construction of six semi-detached dwellings made up by four 2 bedroom dwelling and two 3 bedroom dwellings, arranged in a 2 x 2 dwelling format.  All dwellings will front onto Green Street Green Road and all dwellings will be two storey in height and have private gardens and two parking spaces.


We believe that all main services are located in the vicinity of the site; however prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries with the appropriate service providers.


The site can be found on Green Street Green Road, Darenth and is approximately 2.5 miles  to Junction 2 of the M25, 3 miles south east of Dartford town centre and 4 miles south of the Bluewater shopping centre.  The area is predominantly residential in nature, with the Darenth Community Primary School approximately 0.18 miles from the site.

The legal pack will not be issued until this deposit is lodged. If the deposit is not lodged within this period then the vendor reserves the right to re-market the site
