Imposing Wealden Farmhouse For Sale



BTF Partnership is offering for sale an imposing Wealden Farmhouse with various outbuildings and 4.87 acres near Marden in the county of Kent with a guide price of £1,750,000.

Blue House Farm is located two miles north of Marden village in the Low Weald of Kent, in a rural yet accessible location. This 1900’s farmhouse has been in the same family ownership for around 100 years and was once part of a larger farm. The house needs some modernisation but has high ceilings and spacious living accommodation on the ground floor with a large cellar below. There are three double bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms on the first floor and three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a box room on the second floor. The house measures 4,396sft2 internally and offers large, light rooms, perfect for a busy family.

Outside there are lawned and landscaped gardens to the front, sides and rear of the property and an enclosed tennis court which is now in need of transformation. There are various detached outbuildings located to the north east of the farmhouse including a solid brick granary measuring 508ft2 with potential for conversion into ancillary accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents. A detached wood store of timber construction which measures 235ft2, a detached character greenhouse which measures 327ft2 of brick and timber construction and a detached single garage of brick construction measuring 234ft2.

The agricultural land is classified as Grade III and is situated to the east of the property, extending to 2.93 acres. It is planted with some mature apple trees and would be suitable for keeping horses if required. There is further land owned by the vendor which could be available by separate negotiation, which is predominantly to the west of the house.

"This property would suit a family looking for a large home which they can put their own stamp on. It has both the internal space as well as the possibility of creating additional ancillary accommodation for residential or office use, plus the large gardens, tennis court, paddock, pond and additional land if needed. Marden is a popular village, six miles south of Maidstone with its own mainline services to Charing Cross and Cannon Street in under an hour. There is a good range of state and private schools in the area. This property is in a popular location and should generate significant interest from buyers keen to find a large rural home especially with the current lack of supply."
