Blue House Farm is an imposing Wealden farmhouse sitting on a small ridge in the centre of the Low Weald of Kent with panoramic far-reaching views. The property is situated in a very sought after rural location and extends in total to 4.87 acres. The house was originally lived in by the Vendor when growing up, as it formed part of the larger farm. However over the years, different parts have been developed and sold over time, leaving the primary residential dwelling in the centre of the Blue House Farm complex. The farmhouse is in need of some modernisation and has been tenanted recently up until the beginning of December 2021. There are various component parts to the property, which are as follows:-
Farmhouse & Outbuildings A detached farmhouse built in the early 1900’s which has been extended and modernised over time but has not been touched since it’s tenanted life. The house is of solid brick construction under a pitched clay tiled roof with far-reaching views all around over either residential curtilage, owned farmland or to the north up to the Green Sand Ridge.
