Property Flirt

6 Jul 2016

There’s nothing I love more than a little nosey around a tasty bit of bricks and mortar. Come on, I know you’re with me on this one! And here’s a gorgeous new Property Flirt to get your house-hunting juices going. Guess within £5k of the asking price and get your stamp duty discounted on your next house purchase. (Okay, not really, just do it for the glory).

So, you ready to roll?

Now you don’t need me to tell you that we love a farm in Kent. Farm land, farm views, farm conversions…they’re highly sought after, and a small, manageable, working farm is the dream for a lot of good folk. And Chartwell Farm, this fruity piece of real estate, is just such a modern farm complex complete with stylish farmhouse and an extensive range of out buildings all set within about 6 acres of land.

Ideally located in the beautiful village of Brasted (lovely high street with interior, antique and coffee shops) just outside Sevenoaks this property sits in a highly commutable, much sought after neck-of-the-woods. It’s very much a work in progress – having been totally renovated from a mere shell of a building. Both the farmhouse and grounds scream ‘Potential!’ at the very top of their lungs.

So here’s your visual starter for 10:

The interior is all neutral and clean lines  – a blank canvas just waiting for you to make your mark stylistically. Make that dream of an idyllic Good Life existence a reality. Or just turn it into the biggest party house ever.

Formally associated with the large country house up the road, Brasted Place, this property has got the advantage of mainline rail from Sevenoaks (into Charing Cross in less than 40 mins), the M25 on your doorstep and all those great schools (Knole Academy in Sevenoaks, Judd Boys Grammar in Tonbridge, Weald of Kent and Tonbridge Girls Grammar in Tonbridge. Private Schools: Sevenoaks and Tonbridge Public Schools, Sevenoaks and New Beacon Preparatory Schools, Combe Bank School in Sundridge, Walthamstow Hall Girls School in Sevenoaks…)

All the outbuildings together with the farmhouse are centred around a courtyard. The area around the house is yet to be landscaped. Just look at this barn, above… Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Con-ver-sion!! (Subject to necessary planning and building consents, yada, yada). Hear those rafters screech: ‘POTENTIAL!!!!!’

Oh, Hello. Where did these fellas come from? Sadly the Alpacas don’t come as a fixture or fitting. Right then, you’ve had a good look around, stuck your head round the side of some of the (many) buildings, surveyed the scenery… time to guess that price! I’ve got to admit I was way off the mark with this one. Remember, it’s a lorra lorra bricks set in some pretty impressive grounds. Were you spot on? Well, just click here to find out. You might want to sit down for this.
