About Us

Kentstone Properties Limited is a privately owned property investment company based in Kent with a mixed use property portfolio spread across Southern England.

The company was incorporated in 1862, making it one of the oldest trading companies in the country. It was established to generate returns for its shareholders but also with the philanthropic objective of improving the living conditions of workers and their families in Maidstone. Over the years, the company diversified into commercial property which now makes up over 80% of the portfolio. The commercial portfolio is weighted towards industrial and warehouse units but the company also invests in retail, restaurants and offices.

Kentstone Properties is actively engaged in improving and extending the property portfolio and is always seeking new investment opportunities, especially in the Home counties.

The lot sizes we are currently seeking are in the range of £250,000 – £3,500,000 and we are delighted to retain agents on the basis of effective introductions.
