Historic building in Sevenoaks High Street set for conversion

By Alan Smith

Sevenoaks council has received a planning application seeking permission to convert a redundant office building and a ragstone outbuilding at the rear into four flats.

The application is for No 48 High Street, Sevenoaks, a grade II listed building dating from the 17th century.

The building was once a pub - first the Carpenters Arms and then The Brickmakers Arms, and after the last war was the Top Of The Hill Cafe.

More recently it has been office accommodation with a residential use on one floor.

The applicants say the building has become dilapidated and cannot be sold or let in its present condition. They suggest conversion to residential use as a way to save the property and the barn in the yard at the rear.
