About this property

  • Pattendens Farm lies in beautiful rolling countryside within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers a combination of residential, amenity and sporting assets. The Grade II listed farmhouse and surrounding outbuildings sit centrally to the surrounding paddocks.

    Pattendens Farm totals approximately 24 acres and comprises a delightful 5 bedroom farmhouse, beautifully designed gardens and grounds, a range of outbuildings, barns and work shops, and extensive views over the Tillingham Valley and towards Romney Marsh.

    Believed to date back to the 17th Century, Pattendens Farmhouse has been sympathetically restored and enlarged to provide a delightful family home that boasts character and warmth throughout. The construction of the farmhouse is red brick with a clay tile roof, with white weatherboarding to the rear.

    The kitchen is situated at the heart of the house, and adjoins a family/ breakfast area with French doors opening out onto a patio area and garden. A self-contained summer sitting room, W.C and shower room is accessed through the family breakfast area with stairs leading up to a mezzanine bedroom and a further bedroom beyond. This area of the house offers the opportunity to be used as a self contained annex and can be accessed via an entrance separate to the rest of the house.

    An additional, formal entrance can be found centrally to the farmhouse and enters into a welcoming reception hall, in which the drawing room, downstairs W.C and beautifully built entertaining barn are accessed via.

    Upstairs there are a further three double bedrooms, one of which is an impressive master bedroom with large en suite bathroom and dressing room. There is also a good sized family bathroom located off the landing which has a W.C, sink, bath and separate shower.

    The farmhouse is surrounded with glorious gardens and lawns, and has a cellar which is accessed externally.

    Pattendens Farm extends to approximately 24 acres of predominantly pasture. The land has previously been used for the grazing of livestock and is currently being grazed by horses.

    At the very bottom of the drive lies a range of workshops, garaging and an open fronted barn. The buildings are currently used as workshops and for storage usage, however could easily be converted to provide stabling/housing for livestock (STPP).

    The design and layout of the gardens and lawns are quintessentially British with pretty flower and shrub beds throughout. A delightful mixed orchard has been recently planted by the current owner and surrounds the polytunnel and greenhouses.
