Delightful small farm

Property Posted 29/04/21
Lambert & Foster is launching a delightful small farm to the market at Wittersham in Kent.

Yew Tree Farm is a traditional ring fenced Wealden farm, located in the countryside to the west of Wittersham, which historically formed part of the Isle of Oxney. The farm comprises a traditional Grade II Listed period farmhouse, together with a good range of traditional and modern farm buildings and attractive Wealden pasture, extending to 35.33 acres (14.3 hectares).

The farmhouse has been the subject of evolution and extension over the centuries, with 17th and 18th century elevations as well as a more modern extension, and would now benefit from redecoration and refurbishment.

The current accommodation offers a combination of period character and practical family living, with kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, sitting room and study on the ground floor and five bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor.

The farm buildings include a traditional brick-built stable and dilapidated barn, together with two more modern portal framed buildings that have been used in recent times for equestrian purposes and as a machinery store.

The land is subdivided into eight grassland fields, interspersed with small ponds and mature oaks, in addition to which are an old sand school, extensive veg patch and polytunnel. The late owner historically had an ostrich farming enterprise on much of the farm and grew asparagus on part of it, while more recently the land was grazed by sheep and cut for hay.

Will Banham, of Lambert & Foster’s farm and land sales team, said: “Yew Tree Farm is a real rarity in the current market. To find an attractive period farmhouse that sits well away from any neighbours, with flexible farm buildings and 35 acres, is unusual in a market which is desperately short of available property.

“The farm is bound to appeal to lifestyle and equestrian buyers as well as those seeking a home with pasture and buildings. We are expecting very strong interest.”
