Finns have launched to the market a Grade I/II/III ring-fenced residential farm on the edge of Eastry in the county of Kent. This includes a Grade II listed five-bedroom farmhouse in need of renovation, along with a two-bedroom farm bungalow. Part of the farm lies in the Heronden Conservation Area. The property has a guide price of £4.4 million and is to be sold as a whole or in lots.
Heronden Farm is a unique opportunity for someone to purchase a productive arable farm in a secluded valley location with unspoilt views from both the farmhouse and bungalow. There is a range of traditional farm outbuildings offering diversification opportunities, subject to planning permission. The farm is located on the edge of Eastry village with good road and rail connections.
Henry Wethered, associate at Finns, commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a private family farm close to the stunning Kent coast.
“The farm has been owned by the same family since 1952 and has been managed to a good standard, giving a rare opportunity for someone to come in and take on a significant arable farm in Kent. Currently the farm is cropped with winter wheat and winter barley but in the past it has grown soft fruits.
“The farmhouse and the bungalow are both in need of refurbishment and this will allow someone to make their own mark on these properties to make a very comfortable, family home with a ring-fenced farm. The range of outbuildings includes both an oast house and Kent Barn. The Kent Barn is of timber construction with black weather boarding and a slated roof and includes the former grain storage with its associated silos.
“The barn measures 1,763 sq ft. The brick built oast house fronts Monkeys Hill and is currently in a dilapidated condition. However, there is significant potential for the two storey oast house which, subject to full planning permission, could be converted into a spectacular residential property. The location alone of this farm shows the potential and must be seen for the unique nature of this property to be appreciated.
“Although the farm has been actively managed and farmed, the farmhouse, bungalow and buildings have stood still for a number of years and with careful renovation this could once again be a thriving family farm.”
