Stone House Farm, Dillywood Lane

Rochester, Kent

Brought to the market for the first time in more than three hundred years, Stone House Farm is a rare development opportunity. The site is located to the north of Rochester, in the parish of Frindsbury, in an attractive greenbelt location. Bounded by Dillywood Lane to the north, Stone Horse Lane to the east, and farmland to south and west, the site benefits from a distinctive rural charm. Despite this, Stone House Farm is only 2.5 miles from the historic city of Rochester, with its national rail services, (37 minute train service to London Bridge), local schools, shops and other amenities. Moreover, the site is only 0.5 miles from the Wainscott bypass, which offers excellent onward connections, via the A2/M2, M20 and M25 to London, Bluewater and the coast. The Rochester area also offers plenty of history and culture with several impressive landmarks, including Rochester Cathedral, Upnor and Rochester Castles, and Chatham dockyard.

The site has been divided into 2 lots:

Lot 1 is principally the existing house

Stone House Farmhouse is a large Grade II listed building that dates from around the 18th century. Though in need of renovation, the Farmhouse’s impressive scale and rustic charm offers the potential for either an exciting executive home, or if subdivided, possibly multiple units, (subject to the necessary planning consents).

Lot 2 consists of the former agricultural buildings

The agricultural buildings date from the 19th century and are taken to be curtilage listed. This part of the site comprises of a triple Oast with store, a cart shed/barn (South Barn), cattle shed (North Barn) and covered yard. The planning consent is to convert the 3 agricultural buildings into 5 dwellings.
