Originally the lodge house for Cryals Court, an impressive Edwardian country house which lies to the South East, this beautifully presented period home has been stylishly updated using many reclaimed materials, bespoke joinery, and contemporary fixtures and fittings and has the benefit of an additional self-contained annexe.

The house has had a complete "makeover", with the opening up of the reception hall to create adaptable light and open plan space, with a striking galleried landing and skylights above.

The property is conveniently located in a semi-rural position about 1.5 miles from the popular village of Matfield, and about 4 miles from Paddock Wood mainline station with regular services to London Bridge, Charing Cross and Cannon Street from 42 minutes. Further points of note include:
- entrance porch/boot room with storage cupboards and a glazed door opening into the impressive reception hall, with traditional oak parquet flooring and a balustrade staircase rising up to the first floor;
- sitting room with parquet floor, bespoke fitted oak cupboards, with an attractive rattan finish, a contemporary dual-aspect glazed gas fire and wide bi-fold doors opening out to a decked terrace;
- generously-proportioned family kitchen/breakfast room with parquet floor, bi-fold doors out to the garden and fitted with stylish wall and base units, corian work tops, a central island unit/breakfast bar, walnut veneered cupboards to one wall and fitted Neff appliances including twin electric ovens (one steam, one fan) a gas hob, twin induction hobs and an AEG dishwasher;
- dining room, open plan to the kitchen and presented in a period style with louvred shutters, decorative moulding and a separate family room;
