BTF Partnership has launched jointly for sale with Lambert & Foster Merrymaids Farm near Staplehurst in the county of Kent. This small holding comprises a well-proportioned and detached family home with an Agricultural Occupancy Condition, along with a detached agricultural barn (with potential) and land extending to approximately 27 acres. The property has a guide price of £1,100,000.

Merrymaids Farmhouse is an attractive 3-4 bedroom family home built to a traditional design with well-proportioned accommodation arranged over two floors. The front door opens onto the sitting room with open fireplace, door to study / fourth bedroom and door leading to a kitchen/breakfast room with a utility room off it. On the first floor there are three good sized double bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, the front of the property has hardstanding with parking for multiple vehicles. The garden is laid to lawn with post and rail boundaries. There is also a detached double garage.

To the west of the house is a detached, seven bay steel portal framed agricultural barn measuring 42.7m x 15m with a chalk floor, pre-cast concrete retaining walls and part Yorkshire board elevations under a pitched, corrugated fibre cement roof. This barn is located outside the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and could offer the potential of conversion to residential use, subject to the necessary planning permissions.

The farmland is situated to the north of the house and barn and extends to approximately 27 acres of newly established pasture leys with road frontage to the west on the A229 Maidstone Road.

Alex Cornwallis at BTF Partnership comments: “This is a good sized small holding and family home for someone already working or previously working in agriculture. The property is in a sought after location within the Cranbrook School Catchment Area with good rail links to London Bridge and Waterloo Station in under an hour from Staplehurst station just down the road. Viewing is certainly recommended but the property has lots of potential.”
