An attractive block of grazing land situated in a lovely location in the Weald of Kent, with former hopper huts with potential (subject to planning) is on the market with Lambert & Foster.
Kensham Farmland is located in Sandhurst Lane on the outskirts of the village of Rolvenden, a short drive from nearby Sandhurst village. The property is situated approximately five miles away from Tenterden, which offers a full range of local amenities, with further facilities available in Ashford, approximately 17 miles.
Kensham Farmland comprises 68.86 acres (27.86 hectares) of attractive Grade III Wealden pasture with a number of woodland shaws with far-reaching views. The land is divided into a number of fenced and hedged grazing fields either side of a stream, some benefiting from field drainage. There are two ranges of former hopper huts which may have potential, subject to planning, for alternative uses.
Hopper Huts 1
A range of 12 hopper huts with an approximate footprint of 1,843 sq ft, with easy access located close to the lane. The larger building is of block construction with a pitched concrete fibre cement roof and concrete base. There is also the original brick cookhouse, and a dilapidated timber frame hopper hut with corrugated iron cladding.
Hopper Huts 2
This group of hopper huts, with an approximate footprint of 1,163 sq ft, are all of timber frame construction with corrugated iron cladding. These huts are located in an elevated position adjacent to a small woodland shaw set around the remains of the original brick cookhouse.
There is a small heritage apple orchard central to the farmland, established by the vendor’s family in 1918 and which includes a number of varieties including Crimson Bramley, Beauty of Bath, Newton, Anne Elizabeth, Lord Derby, Stirling Castle and Blenheim.
