Mound Wood - SOLD, Kent - 5 ¼ acres, £65,000

Mound Wood - SOLD
Mound Wood - SOLD
Kent

A ancient woodland set back from the quiet country lane and surrounded by woods, featuring chestnut coppice, oaks and other broadleaves.

Mound Wood is a chestnut coppice with birch, hazel, oak, mountain ash and holly also found in the wood. The most recent coppicing in the north east of Mound Wood was undertaken approx. 2 years ago. The more mature coppice in the southern part of the wood is quite well-spaced and easily accessed on foot. The wood is on a south west facing slope allowing for good drainage. A private track accessed through ride stops at either end provides great access to centre of the wood. A short walk from this track a bench has been installed, in a small clearing amongst the chestnut. This is an incredibly private and peaceful spot.

Mound Wood is located directly off a country lane and being set back from the road it is extremely quiet. It is part of a larger woodland known as ‘Goulds Wood’. The main entrance to Goulds Wood is a double metal gate off Rhode Common. The tracks providing rights of way along the west and south east boundaries of Mound Wood are suitable in dry conditions for small 4x4s. There is a large timber stacking area down by the gate (shared with other owners) which also provides somewhere secure to park. There are no public footpaths through or alongside the wood.

Natural England designates Mound Wood as an Ancient Replanted Woodland (PAWS). This land has been wooded since at least 1600AD. Kestrels, buzzards, great spotted, lesser spotted and green woodpeckers have been recorded in the area. Mound Wood has recently been named after the wood ants found in Goulds Wood.

The village of Selling is less than 1 ½ miles away and has a mainline station and a handy General Store. Canterbury is approximately 8 miles from Mound Wood and Belmont House which usually hosts an annual woodfair in September is approx. 6 miles away.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
