Kent Barn For Conversion

A cottage and an unconverted Kent threshing barn with planning permission for conversion to a four / five bedroom character home, set in 1.75 acres of land in the Kent Downs hamlet of Postling with outstanding views and excellent transport links to London and the Continent

Re-offered for sale:

The Barn

The barn has planning permission for conversion to a 4/5 bedroom home (expiry August 2013).

Despite their age none of the buildings are listed removing layers of complexity and expense from the project and allowing the incorporation of full length glazed windows on all elevations maximizing space and light within the proposed dwelling.

Proposed floor plans give accommodation of approximately 4000 sq feet. Detailed plans available for viewing on Shepway Council Website (Planning application No. Y07/0246/SH and Y10/0509/SH).

There is also planning consent for garage / workshop / stables. There is a separate granary whose role within the finished property has been left undecided.

The land

The barn is set in approximately 1.75 (tbv) acres of land and is part of a small charming farmstead, enjoying its own small orchard and mature vegetable plot.

It currently includes a fenced field of approximately one and a half acres.


The barn is set on the edge of the sought after village of Postling within the rural hamlet. It is nestled in the Kent Downs, within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Postling has its own ancient church and village hall which is the location of Badgers Bridge nursery, a very popular local nursery.

Local schools include Stowting Primary school (Ofsted 2009/10: Outstanding), and Badgers Bridge nursery.

There is easy access to the neighboring villages of Etchinghill, Lyminge, and Elham. Lyminge offers a good range of amenities with post office, general store, chemist, public house and restaurants, library, tea-shop and Etchinghill has a public house.

Access to the high-speed rail link to London is only 6 minutes away from Sandling station and provides a journey time to St Pancreas of 56 minutes or 37 minutes from Ashford (15minutes by car). The port of Dover with its cross channel ferry services to the continent is only 10 miles away by the M20.
