A glorious 16th century farmhouse in Kent that is up for sale for the first time in 40 years

Old Mumford Farm is a type of property that exudes charm from every crevice. The sale of this exemplary home, from the sensational fireplace to the beautifully manicured grounds and three additional properties, is sure to attract buyers from all over the world.

Available for the first time in 40 years, Old Mumford Farm near Kingsnorth is a rare opportunity to own a small Grade II listed Kentish farm.

It is being marketed through Strutt & Parker with an estimated price of £2.75 million.

Situated in a very accessible (but rural) location, this home offers eight acres of land that houses the main house, two converted vacation cottages, a detached three-bedroom barn, and a mixture of formal and informal grounds.

Each of the two converted cottages offers two bedrooms and beautiful living spaces filled with the same exquisite period features as the main house.

The three-bedroom barn is shaped like a three-sided square with a large courtyard in the center.

The main farmhouse itself dates from the 16th century but was extensively altered in the 18th century and now offers six bedrooms and five antique reception rooms.

The Reception Hall is a warming space with an exposed brick floor and an open brick fireplace. From here you can enter the dining room with tiled floors and exposed beams.

The living room is undeniably the heart of the home, with an expansive corner fireplace, exposed beamed ceilings and wood paneled walls; but when a house shows such a big story, every room is a feature within itself.

The gardens are a complete delight and are designed as a series of ‘rooms’, each with its own style and character.

A highlight is a productive vegetable garden, next to a walled water garden, and there are pear and apple orchards on site.

The property is located in a conservation area in the village of Kingsnorth. Here you will find several shops, a supermarket and a medical office. Ashford is just a few miles further down the road and offers added amenities, more shopping options and education.

Old Mumford Farm is currently listed for sale through Strutt & Parker for an estimated price of £2.75m – see more photos or ask the agent for more details.
