BTF Partnership has launched for sale Washenden Manor, just to the east of Biddenden, in Kent. This is a small, private country estate with historic Grade II listed moated manor, converted oast house, detached Kent Barn with potential and a further unlisted three-bedroom cottage with planning permission for replacement with a four-bedroom dwelling. This is all ringfenced in approximately 85 acres of stunning farmland and woodland.

Approached via a long, private, sweeping driveway, the restored manor house is of 17th century origin and measures 4,530ft². It has three reception rooms, six bedrooms and gardens surrounded by a water-filled moat.

Outside the moat is the spacious three-bedroom oast measuring 2,364ft² that has previously been used as a holiday let and is currently let on an assured shorthold tenancy agreement providing a useful income. It also has an attached double garage and farm workshop occupied by the vendor.

The Kent Barn has potential as a party barn or further dwelling, subject to necessary approvals, and is currently used for agricultural storage. Measuring 2,213ft², it has a traditional Kent peg roof and ancient beams and there are stunning views across the land from the rear. Adjacent to the barn is a modern stable building with three loose boxes and tack room set in a small fenced concrete yard. In addition, there are two field shelters for horses or livestock.

At the foot of the driveway is The Cottage, measuring 997ft², which has planning permission for replacement with a stylish and larger two storey, four-bedroom home under planning reference PA/2022/2400.

The manor is surrounded by pasture land extending to 62.67 acres which is classified Grade III. There are parcels of woodland situated either side of the access drive which extend to 19.03 acres with a small brook running through it. At this time of year, the woodland is carpeted in bluebells, wood anemones and primroses.

Alex Cornwallis at BTF Partnership commented: “This is a property where you can literally pull up the drawbridge and leave the world behind. This is a truly unique property with a real ‘wow’ factor as you come down the sweeping drive in the heart of the Weald of Kent.

“The property has considerable flexibility for a new owner who might be looking to generate an income from the existing residential properties and barn or for someone who just wants the peace and privacy of their own space, surrounded by their own land. There are not many places like Washenden left in Kent, and I believe it will not take too long for someone to fall for its charm, tranquillity and position.”

Washenden Manor is located two miles from the village of Biddenden, which has local shops/amenities and a vineyard. Biddenden is located five miles from Headcorn to the north and Tenterden to the south.
