Many people dream of living “off-grid” in a log cabin in the woods surrounded by nature.
Now a rare chance has come to the market with such a property near Canterbury which sits in its own one-acre plot.
But what makes Badger’s Mount at Wootton unique is that unlike many similar buildings in woodland, it has planning permission to be used as a home.
The secluded cabin is being sold this month through Clive Emson Property Auctions with a guide price of £100,000-£110,000.
Tucked away at the end of a long gated unmade driveway off Denton Lane, it has three bedrooms, a living room with wood burner, kitchen, shower/WC and a balcony with far reaching views.
Auctioneer Kevin Gilbert says he cannot remember a similar freehold property with permission for residential use coming through the auction house and has already sparked a lot of interest.
“It’s an executor sale and we are still trying to get some more information, like what mains services, if any, it has.
“Although there is a toilet and sinks and an electric hob, we don’t know how they are serviced.
“The wooden building also clearly needs some TLC but has the potential to be something quite special.
“I imagine that when the leaves drop from the trees, the views over the countryside will be quite spectacular.
“It was only listed with us last week and already we have a lot of interest. It’s quite a rarity and a unique opportunity so one of those that could well exceed its guide price, if two people want it badly enough.”
But he also urges prospective buyers to inspect the legal pack before bidding.
