A rare agricultural and residential estate in the High Weald of Kent is shortly to be released to the the market for the first time in over a century by Agents BTF Rural (01233 740077) and Samuel & Son (01435 864020).
The estate is made up of 269 acres and offers outstanding sporting and amenity potential as well as established arable and grassland farming enterprises, and all within 30 miles of central London. There is significant potential for the creation of a shoot with a range of well located woods and shaws which support a good stock of wild game birds and deer.
The main four-bedroom farmhouse offers good family accommodation set well back from the road and is within easy reach of the farm buildings. Four of the farm buildings, including the oast house, have planning consent for conversion to residential units.
Also offered for sale is a detached three bedroom cottage and a pair of semi detached cottages at the adjoining St Augustine’s Farm. Together with 28 acres of grassland and woodland, they form Lot 2 of the sale.
‘This is a unique chance to purchase what could be the quintessential gentleman’s estate’, says Anthony Field of BTF Rural. ‘The transport links, privacy and potential for further development make New House and St Augustine’s Farm a very rare opportunity with such close proximity to London. We expect keen interest from local and London based buyers, as well as those from further afield.’
