About this property

  • Nursery farm is a delightful property set in the heart of the Wealden countryside and benefitting from proximity to the facilities and amenities of Lamberhurst, Wadhurst and Tunbridge Wells. Possessing significant character and charm, this 16th Century farmhouse commands views over its gardens, pond and woodland and beyond across its pasture and paddocks.

    All buildings are individually Grade II Listed, with the threshing barn thought to have been constructed in 1842 using 16th and 17th century timbers from an earlier structure. The oast house is more recent, dating from the early 19th century and features an attractive external gallery to the first floor. Both outbuildings offer great potential for a variety of uses, subject to obtaining all necessary permissions.

    The farmhouse itself offers almost 3,000 sq ft of accommodation and presents a wonderful opportunity for renovation and updating. Currently offering three/four reception rooms and the kitchen on the ground floor, with five bedrooms upstairs served by two staircases, there is scope for creating a very special family home in a delightful semi-rural location.

    Outside, a new access has recently been created to the south of the house and outbuildings, with electric gates and a parking area, restoring the house, gardens and pond to a charming vehicle-free setting. An area of woodland defines the northern boundary and the pasture and paddocks extend mainly to the south.
