Energy Efficiency Rating D

This substantial detached property situated in the picturesque hamlet of Aldington Frith is an ideal rural retreat for a buyer wanting privacy and seclusion whilst still benefiting from being on a bus route and having easy access to town and to the local post-offices, shops and pubs of the nearby villages. Ashford International rail station, with high speed, 38 minute travel to London, St Pancras is just 5 miles away along quiet country roads. The property is equally suitable for executive entertaining and large family living living, especially because the two staircases facilitate the use of part of the house as a separate guest area.

Built in the late 1970s from traditional materials, Appletree stands back from the road and has a period charm with beamed ceilings throughout the bulk of the ground floor rooms. It enjoys the privacy of 1.5 acres of garden and paddock, all approached via the dual entrances of long gravel driveway to the side or paved entrance to the front. There is garaging for upward of 5 cars, in addition to a double car port and extensive gravel area and turning circle. The house itself is centrally heated by oil, is completely double glazed and has 5/6 bedrooms and 4 bath/shower rooms plus a cloakroom. Living accommodation extends to dining room, sitting room, lounge, kitchen, day room and integral conservatory and the usual appointments of laundry, hallways and utility room. There is a separate 'office' room above the front double garage.
The main feeling about the house is one of space and variety, all rooms being quite large, yet readily accessible one to the other. There is an abundance of patio/french doors leading variously to gardens and patios and to an enclosed swimming pool. Gardens are well stocked with trees, shrubs and lawns and there is a large water fountain and a separate garden pond. The property abuts a bluebell wood and open fields.
There are numerous extensive outbuildings that are largely out of sight of the house.
