A rare opportunity to acquire a farmhouse and farm buildings for complete renovation set within 119 acres on the edge of the Ashdown Forest – Winnie the Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood – has come to the market.

White House Farm is set in an exceptional rural position between the hamlets of Lye Green and Friar’s Gate, just seven miles from Tunbridge Wells. It sits on the edge of the Ashdown Forest, which inspired Hundred Acre Wood, the setting of author A A Milne’s Winnie the Pooh stories.

The farmhouse, which is in a private setting with no near neighbours and a beautiful and unspoilt outlook, dates back in part to the 17th century and formed part of the impressive Buckhurst Estate. Within the grounds is the footprint and remains of a single roundel oast, which is also Grade II listed, as well as several derelict outbuildings.

In addition, there is a modern concrete portal frame barn and area of hardstanding with potential, subject to the necessary consents, for alternative uses.

The land extends to about 119 acres, including 88.5 acres of attractive mixed Wealden farmland, with 28.1 acres of deciduous woodland.

Hannah Riches of Savills’ rural agency team in the South East, said: “This is a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a mixed Wealden farm with significant potential to improve, enhance and redevelop, on the edge of the Ashdown Forest.”

White House Farm has a guide price of £1,785,000 – £1,950,000.
