Period house with two cottages
So where now for the housing market in Kent? Mathew Carpenter, of Wrotham’s Wedgewood Homes is in a very optimistic mood indeed.
We continue to remain optimistic about the market in general.
We think that continued government support, positive mortgage availability and demand for homes mean that the future is bright, and housebuilders can get on with supplying homes to meet the population’s needs. A five-bedroom period home with a cottage barn and a holiday cottage is on the market.
Stallance Farm, at Rectory Lane, Sutton Valence, is for sale with Fine & Country at a guide price of £2 million.
The main property is a character-packed Grade II listed building.
The bedrooms are served by two bathrooms and two shower rooms.
There are four reception areas, a kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room, a separate ground floor cloakroom and a large cellar.
Within the grounds are two further buildings that have been developed to provide an attractive and very substantial two/threebedroom barn cottage with conservatory and a further three-bedroom holiday cottage. Both properties have produced good rental yields.
The properties are contained within an attractive plot of about two acres that include well tended gardens to the main house and a substantial but uncultivated upper paddock area.
Other benefits include a House builder Barratt Developments made record pre-tax profits in the year to June as its average sale price grew 10% to £289,800.
