Church Farm House comprises a dilapidated former farm dwelling in need of significant modernisation throughout and with potential for a knock down and rebuild scheme (subject to the necessary planning consents). The property would have formerly formed part of the Sondes Estate in the early 1900’s when various farms were sold away. The property is its entirety extends to 7.56 acres and occupies a slightly elevated position that overlooks Valley Farm in the heart of the North Downs.

The dwelling is a detached house of solid brick construction, behind pebbledash rendering under a pitched hipped clay tiled roof with a valley gutter. There are far-reaching views to the south-east out of the upstairs bedrooms and with the undergrowth cut back, you would be able to see all the way to the A251 Faversham Road. The dwelling is in need of significant modernisation throughout with the roof in need of refurbishment as soon as possible. Our view is that there is significant potential for a knock-down and re-build scheme with the property being unlisted.

Outside, there is a good sized residential curtilage area to the front which needs clearance and will provide a view to the south once clear. In addition to this, there is an opening to the rear which leads you to a detached five bay Agricultural Barn, parking to the side and the detached Garage and Cart Lodge which is accessed from the access drive to Church Farm Barn to the south.

The Garage is situated to the north of the farmhouse along with the off-road parking with the cart lodge to the south and the agricultural barn to the west. As mentioned above, there is an additional access through Church Farm Barn to the south which gains access to both the Cart Lodge and the Agricultural Barn / Yard Area with vehicles if required.
