Historic East Kent Farmhouse with Fine Views over Romney Marsh



A historic farmhouse overlooking Romney Marsh is now for sale with BTF Partnership, with a guide price of £1.45m.

Manor Farm at Court-At -Street consists of a detached, five-bedroom period farmhouse currently in the process of renovation, with a walled garden.  Period farm buildings with potential for development (subject to the necessary consents), gardens, grounds and paddock land extending to 6.46 acres.

The substantial ragstone farmhouse which internally measures 2,461sqft, has been overhauled and is now ready for fitting out, to create three en-suite bedrooms, two further bedrooms, and spacious and well-lit living accommodation which opens onto the gardens with outstanding views over Romney Marsh and the English Channel, and on a clear day France is clearly visible with the naked eye.

The farm buildings include a former oasthouse measuring 4.5m x 7m, traditional stone barn formed by three main parts measuring 4.5m x 25m overall, a timber frame cart shed and hay loft measuring 7.18m x 9.47m and a brick and ragstone L-shaped lambing shed.

To the west of the farmhouse is a pasture field classified as Grade II, extending to 5.23 acres.

Richard Thomas, Director at BTF Partnership comments: “This is a fantastic opportunity to create a stunning, rural family home and additional, ancillary accommodation in a sought-after location, with some of the best views across Romney Marsh. This is a property and area steeped in local history dating back to the Romans. The property sits on the escarpment overlooking the ruined chapel of the Holy Maid of Kent, Elizabeth Barton, who was executed at the Tower of London in 1534, as a result of her prophecies against the marriage of Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn.”

The farmhouse and farm buildings date back to the early and mid-19th Century and would have been used to support the traditional farming activities of the area, including rearing the famous Romney Marsh sheep. The buildings served the farm for over a century before some were damaged during the great storm of 1987.

Court-at Street is a hamlet located between Lympne and Aldington and has good road and rail links to London and the continent. Ashford International Station is located approximately nine miles away with high-speed rail links (38 minutes) to London St Pancras.
