Period end-of-terrace with garden to let
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.
