About this property

  • A wonderful opportunity to acquire a charming farmhouse together with an extensive range of outbuildings offering huge potential, and with a substantial landholding.

    Spring Farm enjoys an enviable position off a small country lane in this small village and offers a rare opportunity to enjoy a rural life-style, but with the benefit of convenience, being less than three miles from the historic village of Mayfield and approximately 11 miles south of Tunbridge Wells. To complete the attraction for commuters, Buxted station is approximately 3.5 miles with services to London Victoria from 1hr 19 mins.

    The property has been in our client's family for approximately 37 years and retains a charming rustic country style which sits beautifully with the unspoiled surroundings in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a lovely outlook to the rear over its own land, which lies to the north and north west, with no public rights of way and providing a high degree of privacy.

    Believed to have originally been two cottages, the listing dates the property back to the 18th century or earlier. The accommodation is arranged over three floors, including a a more recent ground floor extension to the rear, with a wealth of oak joinery and interesting period features, including a glass panel on the staircase exposing wattle and daub in the wall.

    The family space arranged well with an open plan kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room with a large brick inglenook fireplace, separate study, garden room and a utility room.

    There are six bedrooms and two bathrooms over the top two floors and scope to create an annexe, subject to listed buildings' consent, in the detached two storey workshop, currently used for storage.

    The house sits within an established area of garden of about 0.56 acres, bordering the fields and offering a lovely outlook.

    There is an impressive range of outbuildings in need of attention, including a stable yard and barns, sited to the north-easterly side of the house and considered to offer potential for a variety of uses, subject to planning, and benefitting from secondary gated access to the lane. Interested parties would need to undertake their own enquiries in this respect.

    The land is gently sloped pastureland, interspersed with woodland and with fields divided by hedged boundaries and amounting to about 41.69 acres in total. The landholding is available in two Lots (see boundary plan).

For me, this is definitely a popular country location, evidenced by three successful Savills sales nearby over the last few years. Generally, I think that individual properties with character and land, set in a good location, always tend to be the most sought-after combination.
