Mason Cottage, Crumps Lane, Ulcombe, Maidstone, Kent ME17

Mason Cottage is situated at the foot of the Greensand Ridge, approximately 2 miles south of Ulcombe village and 3 miles north-east of Headcorn town which is able to provide a good range of day to day facilities and amenities along with national rail link to London stations in under an hour. Sutton Valence is 4 miles north-west and provides further facilities and good leisure and schooling along with links to the national motorway network via Leeds and the A20.

Mason Cottage is a detached former farm cottage of predominantly solid brick construction under a pitched slate roof with later additions of cavity brick construction under a pitched slate roof, originally built in the 1920’s. It has then been extended twice to provide the living accommodation that it comprises today. The cottage is in need of modernisation throughout but provides good sized accommodation extending in total to 1,344ft². There are a range of solar panels on the south facing roof.

Outside there is a significant area of lawned and landscaped gardens to the rear, sides and front with ample off-road parking for several vehicles on a gravelled driveway. The residential curtilage extends in total to 0.69 acres with a former vegetable garden to the west, lawned gardens to the south and general amenity space to the east. There are various outbuildings to the rear which include a Utility Room, Garage and various Garden Stores. All of these buildings are situated in the residential curtilage of the property.

The cottage sits at the foot of the Greensand Ridge entering the Low Weald of Kent with far-reaching views to the south over adjoining owned agricultural land. The property is in a rural yet accessible location and extends in total to 8.27 acres. The house was originally occupied as the vendor’s family farmhouse as part of the smallholding known as Mason Cottage Farm, however over the years, due to the size of the holding, the viability reduced, and the property has now only been occupied as a residential dwelling with the agricultural land rented out for grazing purposes.

The agricultural land at Mason Cottage is situated directly south and west of the residential dwelling and extends to 7.58 acres. The land is all laid to grass and is grazed by a local farmer on a handshake agreement. The boundaries are predominantly natural hedgerows with fencing and there are Wealden Ponds scattered throughout. There is additional land to the east and south which is available by separate negotiation but is currently being retained by the vendor.
