The Farmhouse
Wallingham Farmhouse was constructed in the early 1950s of brick elevations under a tiled roof. The house has been the subject of very little change for many decades and now requires total refurbishment, or possibly replacement subject to obtaining all necessary planning consents. Current accommodation provides sitting room, dining room, kitchen, larder, WC and conservatory on the ground floor. On the first floor are three bedrooms, family bathroom and separate WC. The farmhouse benefits from fantastic views over surrounding farmland and across Romney Marsh.

The Buildings
The farm buildings are set around a small yard, with vehicular access directly off Hope Lane. The largest general purpose/livestock building is open fronted and is steel framed, with box corrugated elevations under a fibre cement roof. The second building has timber ‘York boarding’ elevations under a fibre cement roof with sliding side access door and open front. The smallest of the three buildings is mainly of brick construction under a fibre cement roof and has twin galvanised sliding access doors. This building is currently subdivided with American box style stabling and a tack room.

The Land
The land lies in a single contiguous block of permanent pasture to the north of the farmhouse and buildings. The Wallingham Sewer runs along the eastern boundary, and the land is subdivided into individual fields edged by post and wire fencing and native hedging.

Method of sale: Wallingham Farm is offered for sale as a whole by private treaty. A deadline may be set for best offers and interested parties are therefore encouraged to register their interest with the selling agent at an early opportunity.

Services: Wallingham Farm has mains electricity connections to the house and buildings, and a mains water connection.

There are no public rights of way shown on the Kent County Council Definitive Map as crossing the farm.
