Fine Downland Kent Farm

Lower Deans Farm Harrietsham, high on the North Downs in Kent, was purchased by the late Tony Crouch in 1961. He moved his dairy herd from nearby Lenham where his family had a busy milk round and continued to milk cows at the farm until the herd was dispersed in 2004 and after that the farm has been in a grassland and arable rotation with the undulating topography lending itself to an excellent informal shoot for friends, family and neighbours.


The sale presents an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a complete unspoilt residential farm extending in all to some 528 acres in a secluded, yet accessible, location on the escarpment of the North Downs, close to Harrietsham in Kent. The main farm lies within a ring fence block of pasture and arable land affording privacy to the main farmstead and the outlying blocks of land are only a short distance away, comprising large easily worked arable fields with some woodland adjoining. The main farmhouse is an attractive Grade II Listed five bedroom period property located close to the farmhouse, together with a pair of Grade II Listed cottages and 30,000 square feet of modern and traditional farm buildings, some with potential.  The farm has two telecom masts currently producing a rental income of circa £14,890 per annum.

Lambert & Foster Director, Alan Mummery commented ‘’Tony Crouch was a well known local farmer and has expanded Lower Deans Farm by the prudent purchase of neighbouring land over the last fifty years’’.  Alan goes on to explain ‘’the main farmhouse, cottages and buildings are in a very private location and the farmland has been excellently maintained in good size working fields, suitable for modern arable equipment. It would be great to sell as a whole, although it is being offered either as a whole or in 4 Lots. We hope to find a buyer during the Summer to achieve an early Autumn completion’’.
