Consent has been granted for two substantial houses, both in a contemporary design. Plot A is Culver Meadow, plot size about 0.6 of an acre (over 2,500 sq m) and and Plot B is Fox Field, about 0.48 of an acre (about 2,000 sq m). Both properties will have their own entrance from the main road through Much Hadham. The land is currently a meadow and enjoys delightful views to the east over the Ash Valley and woodland beyond.
The consent for Culver Meadow shows a striking house of great size and quality with accommodation over three floors with many interesting design features including a basement with an exceptional swimming pool complex. Outside, there is garaging and storage. Culver Meadow is approximately 627 sq m (6,748 sq ft) without garaging, and with the garages 675 sq m (7,265 sq ft). The planning consent was granted for Culver Meadow in September 2017, East Herts District Council planning reference 3/17/1440/FUL.
Fox Field is an architect designed house of about 385 sq m (4,144 sq ft) which sits just to the south of Culver Meadow. The plan is for a beautiful 4 bedroom home with an open plan kitchen/living area and includes a basement swimming pool. The current layout with reception rooms on both first and ground floors makes full use of the views. The original approval from East Herts District Council was issued in January 2018, but in December 2018 an application for reserved matters was submitted. The final approval came through on 30 April 2019 with the usual comment that development needed to commence within 3 years of that date. East Herts planning reference 3/17/2841/OUT.
A considerable amount of work on ground investigation reports and searches has already been undertaken. Copies of these documents, the planning consents and floor plans are available from the agent’s office. Building work has already started on the site, including a brick wall running along the western boundary, a crossover and the foundations of the garage block.
