BTF Partnership has launched for sale an exciting self-build project in central rural Kent at Tilsden Farm, Cranbook. The farm has planning permission to develop three new contemporary homes from existing buildings and is for sale with land extending to 167.28 acres. The farm is available in three lots or as a whole, with a guide price in excess of £3,000,000.

 Lot 1 consists of farm buildings in the north yard and has full planning permission to convert the former grain store into a four-bedroom dwelling with conversion of the stable block to a home office, gym, games room and garden store. In the south yard there is a more extensive range of buildings and full planning permission has been granted to demolish all but the former oast house, with consent to convert these buildings into a single, seven-bedroom dwelling. Finally, there is consent for the erection of a new, detached four-bedroom dwelling. The land in Lot 1 comprises 22.46 acres of grass and arable land with a Christmas tree plantation and 9.2 acres of woodland. Guide price £1,825,000.

 Lot 2 is a ring-fenced parcel of arable land with road frontage and woodland extending to 113.69 acres which comprises six main field parcels. The land is divided by a 9.63 acre parcel of wood. Guide price £1,000,000.

Lot 3 consists of an 18.08 acre parcel of Grade III arable land and woodland with a guide price of £175,000.

 Richard Thomas, director at BTF Partnership, commented: “This is, in my opinion, one of the most exciting self-build projects that has come onto the market in this part of Kent for a good number of years. There is fantastic scope to build three large, contemporary and unique homes in a stunning rural setting. This will certainly attract significant interest from a range of prospective buyers given the proximity to Cranbrook which is 0.5 miles away. The new homes will be in the popular Cranbrook School catchment area.”
