Barn is go­ing un­der the ham­mer

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

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.
