North Downs smallholding with planning

Property Posted 09/04/20
BTF Partnership is offering for sale a rare opportunity to buy a working small holding in a spectacular rural location with elevated views over the North Downs near the village of Stansted, seven miles from Sevenoaks.

The property includes a farmhouse (subject to AOC), outbuildings with residential consents and land extending to approximately 90 acres.

Stansted Lodge Farm is located in the North Downs and is for sale as a whole or in five separate lots with an overall guide price of £1,675,000. The lots being offered for sale are as follows:

Lot 1 – A detached five-bedroom farmhouse subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition, and in need of modernisation along with Grade III agricultural land and woodland extending to approximately 30.63 acres – Guide Price £595,000.

Lot 2 – Agricultural buildings, yard and land extending to 3.69 acres. Some of the buildings have planning permission for two three bedroom semi-detached properties and one four bedroom detached property under the Planning Reference TM/19/02607/FL – Guide Price £595,000

Lot 3 – A parcel of Grade III agricultural land with far reaching views to the north extending to approximately 7.6 acres – Guide Price £125,000.

Lot 4 – A parcel of Grade III agricultural land with sloped banks and woodland extending to approximately 7.44 acres – Guide Price £125,000.

Lot 5 – Grade III agricultural land and woodland through a valley with road frontage extending to approximately 40.93 acres – Guide Price £235,000.

Alex Cornwallis at BTF Partnership said: “This is a very interesting opportunity in a rural setting, but which is also close to excellent road and rail links to Sevenoaks, Central London and beyond. I can see this will be of interest for a number of different buyers as it has a number of different possibilities for future use. This is the first time to the market for a significant period of time as the farm has been in the vendor’s family for over 50 years. It is likely the farm will be sold in Lots, but it certainly provides an opportunity for an incomer to purchase a working small holding in an incredibly sought-after location.”

Adjacent to lots 4 and 5 is a period residential farmhouse and approximately 4.19 acres. This property is in a different ownership but is also for sale through BTF Partnership.
