Pe­riod end-of-ter­race with gar­den to let

Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - FRONT PAGE -

Some im­prove­ment could be on the cards for a charm­ing 16th-cen­tury farm­house set in 20 ru­ral acres.

A guide price of £850,000 c o u l d s e c u re t h re e - b e d - room Po­plar Farm, a grade II listed Wealden farm­house in the ham­let of Eger­ton Forstal, be­tween Len­ham and Smar­den.

Be­hind its pretty brick­work frontage, es­tate agent Lam­bert & Foster de­scribes the prop­erty as “re­quir­ing up­dat­ing and im­prove­ment”.

The lay­out has three main rooms down­stairs. Th­ese are the sit­ting room, which has an in­glenook fire­place, a kitchen with a Ray­burn and a use­ful study.

Two stair­cases lead up to the three bed­rooms up­stairs.

Out­side, a former cow byre has been con­verted to a onebed­room an­nexe and there is an oak-framed barn with po­ten­tial to con­vert.

Within the large gar­den is a run of garages be­neath a cor­ru­gated tin roof.

A metal five-bar gate pro­vides lead to the four pad­docks, laid to pas­ture. This land has been grazed, on an in­for­mal ba­sis, by the an­i­mals of a lo­cal farmer. The last two homes are avail­able at Oak Fields, a de­vel­op­ment of new homes at Sha­dox­hurst.

They are both de­tached and have four bed­rooms, two of them with en suites. All bed­rooms have built-in wardrobes and the houses are priced at £425,000 and £435,000.

En­ergy ef­fi­cient kitchen ap­pli­ances are in­cluded and the homes both have garage, car port and park­ing space.

The de­vel­op­ment is at Wood­church Road, with Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional sta­tion a short drive away. An end-of-ter­race pe­riod house is avail­able to rent now at £1,500 a month.

The four-storey, three­bed­room, fur­nished prop­erty at High Street, Bridge, is on the books of agent Charles Bain­bridge and has ex­ten­sive and ver­sa­tile ac­com­mo­da­tion. On the lower ground floor is a kitchen with range cooker and a din­ing room.

At the back, the kitchen goes through to a large con­ser­va­tory, which opens onto the gar­den. On the ground floor are two re­cep­tion rooms, plus a cloak­room. On the first floor is the bath­room with bed­room to the front.

There are two bed­rooms on the top floor with views over the vil­lage rooftops. There is a shared drive with park­ing for two cars. There is an land­scaped back gar­den, which is well­main­tained in­clud­ing paved seat­ing ar­eas, lawn and ma­ture beds. The gar­den is en­closed by brick and flint walls.
