You can let your imagination run riot when you visit River Minnis Farm as you consider the unique and rare opportunity that acquiring this property could provide. With its detached farmhouse, 9.265 acres of paddocks, numerous outbuildings of every size and shape including one that is currently being used as an office and a barn that could house a dozen combine harvesters and still not feel crowded, there are a very wide variety of development options available. The site is located on the outskirts of the attractive village of River and surrounded by countryside but is still not far from Dover and the Channel Tunnel for access to the Continent and the A2 for Canterbury and London.
As with any development project whatever is decided would have to be subject to appropriate planning permissions. For example it might be possible to do a complete revamp of the site in one go, such as creating a small enclave of attractive country properties or upgrading and replacing many of the outbuildings to become workshops and offices for small businesses and artisans. Another option could be to develop an equestrian centre/riding stables to complement the one next door, using the enormous barn as the basis for a vast indoor riding school.
Alternatively the upgrade could be done over time, possibly starting with the existing farmhouse which is set back from the road and partially surrounded by secluded gardens including lawns, hedges and mature trees. Currently this detached building consists of a lounge, dining room and fitted kitchen on the ground floor and three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs but it is in need of considerable modernisation. There is also an attached garage that could be incorporated to increase the accommodation and plenty of hard standing at the front for parking numerous vehicles.
