Barn is going under the hammer
A period oak-framed barn with permission for conversion is to be auctioned.
Believed to date from the early 18th century, the barn at Yew Tree Farm, Horsmonden, is being sold on the instructions of the trustees.
It is among 154 lots listed by Clive Emson, the land and property auctioneers, ahead of its next sale.
The barn sits on the road between Horsmonden and Claygate and has a guide price of £280,000 to £285,000.
Auctioneer John Stockey said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to convert a historic barn into a family home.
“There is also permission to build a detached garage and the rural location makes it an even more attractive opportunity.
“When complete, it would have three bedrooms and we anticipate builders and developers will be interested.”
Also up for auction is a selfcontained flat at Petteridge Lane at Matfield, which is being sold on the instructions of a housing association.
The groundfloor, one-bedroom flat is to be sold on a new ground lease and the guide price is £100,000 to £110,000.
Both lots will appear at Clive Emson’s next sale, the fifth of the year. It takes place on Tuesday, July 26, at the Clive Emson Conference Centre at the Kent Showground, Detling, beginning at 11am.
