Kent Auction Highlights

What a wonderful Lot

There can be few places in Kent as tranquil as the Elham Valley and after an enjoyable walk in the unspoiled countryside, one could even allow enough time to sample lunch at one of the many charming village pubs. Nestled between Canterbury and Folkestone, the Elham Valley is situated in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Speaking of beauty, Lot 74, in the current catalogue is The Worlds Wonder Farmhouse at Elham. Houses such as this, in need of improvement and redecoration are rarely found these days in such an enviable position and surrounded by farmland.

It has three bedrooms, gardens to front, side and rear incorporating off-road parking and a range of outbuildings which could offer further scope.

Worlds Wonder Farmhouse has a guide price of £400-420,000 and is to be offered at the Clive Emson Conference Centre, Kent County Showground, Detling, Maidstone ME14 3JF on 12 June at 11am.

Big in accommodation, little in price

Lot 77 in the coming auction is considered excellent value for money, with a guide price of £290-310,000. It is a detached four bedroom family house with single storey extension to the rear, enhancing the ground floor accommodation and situated in the sought after area of Littlestone, within close proximity of a local parade of shops and the village of New Romney beyond.  It is also close to the seafront at Littlestone/Greatstone.

The house has double glazed windows and a gas heating system via radiators. There is a lovely southerly facing rear garden, plus garden to front incorporating a driveway leading to garage.

The current owners are looking to move to Yorkshire where their grandchildren live – they said “We will be sad to leave our lovely home as the apple tree is loading well with fruit and the sun is soaking the patio, but very glad to be with our family”.

53 Littlestone Road is to be offered on 12 June at the Clive Emson Conference Centre, Kent County Showground, Detling, Maidstone, ME14 3JF, commencing at 11am

Always look on the bright cider of life!

A new lease of life could be on the cards for The Cider Works (formerly known as The High & Dry) which is situated on the west side of Sandwich Road (A256) close to the junction with Kennel Hill between Eastry and Whitfield.  Prior to the fire damage in April 2018 it is understood that The Cider Works comprised a public house, shop, restaurant, two self-contained flats (one, one-bedroom and one two-bedroom) with separate access, and a cider processing combo.

Within the 0.73 hectare (1.82 acres) plot there is a car park, children’s playground, grassed area and paddock. The fire damaged building and site may offer potential for reinstatement or re-development with a residential, commercial or mixed use scheme, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
