We've been selling agricultural land in the South East for well over 100 years.
We know that selling your farm or a parcel of land is a significant decision and often complicated by succession and tax planning. We helped hundreds of landowners over the years and are always happy to talk you through the options to help you make the most from your property assets.
Properties for sale with integral or separate annexes or other forms of independent living accommodation.
An annexe offers many opportunities. More and more buyers are looking for space for home working or independent living accommodation for family members. Where planning permission has been obtained these properties may also generate valuable rental income from holiday rental or traditional tenants.
We love exposed beams at Hobbs Parker. Many of these properties for sale will also be period or listed properties.
I'm very lucky to have sold hundreds of historic properties over the years. Many of these have been timber-framed farmhouses and barn conversions. I never tire of the wonderful craftsmanship. We once sold a house where a complete barn had been painstakingly moved from Challock to Mersham and you could still see the architect's markings showing how the frame was reconstructed.
Building plots for sale for one or more houses. In many cases, the planning permission will already have been approved. Ideal for builders, smaller-scale developers and those wishing to self-build their dream home.
"Do you have a building plot for sale in the country with views and some land?" is possibly the question we are asked most frequently. Good building plots are a rare thing. And so when we launch new plots on the market to our database of registered developers, builders and the general public the demand and interest is huge.
Bungalows for sale in Ashford, Tenterden and the local villages and countryside.
As building land has become ever more scarce and expensive, developers have tended to build fewer bungalows than in the past. We are fortunate in that we usually have a good selection of bungalows for sale and many of these, having been built some time ago, will benefit from nice sized gardens.
Properties for sale with business opportunities. These might include rental income, holiday lets, leisure businesses, fishing lakes and others.
Having been selling rural property for well over a hundred years at Hobbs Parker, we are often one of the first agents that buyers turn to when searching for a property to buy that will accommodate their business plans.

Modern properties for sale or homes with modern or contemporary features or extensions.
We've seen a great deal of interest in contemporary properties in recent years -- the 'Grand Designs effect' perhaps? Certainly, open plan living and large sliding doors and bi-folds are highly sought after by modern families.
Homes for sale that are either brand new or have been built very recently.
There's a lot to be said for a new or recently constructed home -- immaculate decoration, lower heating bills, contemporary living spaces, modern kitchens and bathrooms. I love the way architects are evolving home design to suit modern family living.
Properties for sale registered with NHBC and with the benefit Buildmark warranty and insurance cover.
Buying a new or recently constructed home with a NHBC Buildmark Warranty offers additional protection and peace of mind. It's well worth bearing in mind when searching for your new home.
Properties for sale with outbuildings -- these might be large sheds, workshops, storage buildings and livestock accommodation.

These properties for sale include paddocks. They are typically laid to grass and range from one acre up to a maximum of around 20 acres.
There is no doubt that a paddock adds substantial value to a house both in terms of the enjoyment that it brings to the owners but also in the asset value of the property. Valuing properties for sale with paddocks requires a huge amount of local expertise -- something that only really comes from years of experience in the field.
Period properties for sale in Kent and East Sussex. Often these will be listed too.
I've lost count of how many fabulous period properties I've valued and sold over the years. I'm lucky enough to live in an old farmhouse myself and know just how much an inglenook, beams and creaking stairs adds to the homely feeling of a period property. Period properties always generate a great deal of interest and sell well.

The equestrian market is a specialist area -- it's one I've been involved with for decades, both as a Point to Point jockey and property professional. I lead our dedicated equestrian team at Hobbs Parker.
Property for sale and to rent in Kent and East Sussex less than 5 miles from a mainline railway station.
Whilst home-working is here to stay, a home within easy reach of a mainline station is still a pre-requisite for many of our buyers; especially those seeking to move down from London. And of course, the arrival of High Speed 1 changed the map for commuters from Ashford and the surrounding countryside.
Properties for sale in Kent and East Sussex with indoor or outdoor swimming pools.
My family are rarely happier than when splashing in the pool whilst on holiday. Now, I know I'm an optimist, but our summers seem to get warmer every year and as modern pool designs improve they are becoming a very desirable feature in the family homes we sell.
