This is a truly exceptional development, built by local developers Hibau and boasts superb facilities, including access to a private lake.
Summary of the site
Otium Lake is a private estate, featuring 31 bespoke homes, set amongst a majestic lakeside within a private 20 acre estate. Comprising parkland and woodland areas, it provides the perfect location to escape the hustle and bustle of urban living and to relax and de-stress.
The development is located in the tranquil village of Pluckley in the heart of the Kent Countryside, adjacent to Pluckley train station which has direct access to London in one hour and Ashford in just 6 minutes. The private estate is secured with boundary fences and electric gates, meaning families can play and explore all the estate has to offer in a safe and secure environment.
Otium Lake is designed by award winning Guy Hollaway Architects and the homes have been carefully designed to provide spacious living spaces. The architecture combines traditional form and materials with large feature glazing to create attractive and energy efficient new homes.
The plots are large enough to accommodate additional buildings that could be used as a home office or flexible recreation space. The development blends new construction methods, in terms of energy efficiency and modern technology, with sociable open plan living spaces.
On the southern side of the lake, a communal jetty will provide further opportunities for all residents of the development to be able to access and enjoy the lake. From fishing, to sailing a small boat, the lake offers endless opportunities for leisure and relaxation.
From the developer
Working on this redundant former brickwork site has been a real pleasure and I am personally proud of what has been achieved. The setting is unrivalled locally and the sense of space, in terms of plot sizes and communal areas, is tremendous and can only be appreciated when you visit.
My intention with Otium Lake was to create a prestige development with capacity to bespoke homes to their owners’ specific needs, and, capitalising on this truly remarkable location, I hope to enhance the lifestyles of those who call it home.
