Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Hillands is a fantastic grade II listed period house with a great deal of charm set in the centre of its grounds with a wide range of outbuildings, all located in a delightful rural position on the outskirts of Marsh Green.

The original part of the house is believed to be 16th century with a substantial later Edwardian addition. Hillands has been in the same ownership since the early 1960's and has been a much loved family home that would now benefit from updating.

Throughout the house there are a wealth of charming features which include beamed ceilings and inglenook fireplaces in both the drawing room and dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga, leads to a pantry, utility room, cloakroom, sitting room and office.

The beams and character continue on the first floor with a very spacious master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, family bathroom and stairs leading to a number of attic rooms with potential for further bedroom space (subject to the usual consents).

Hillands is situated in a lovely rural location between the village of Marsh Green and Edenbridge Town. Marsh Green is very pretty
and has a country pub, and Dormansland with
its general store about 2.5 miles away. Lingfield
has more comprehensive shopping facilities,
as does Edenbridge including a Waitrose and
railway station serving London Victoria and
London Bridge.

Sevenoaks and Tonbridge are all within easy reach and provide excellent educational, recreational and shopping facilities together with mainline stations serving London Charing Cross/Cannon Street/ London Bridge in approximately 30/35 minutes. Oxted station, 6 miles, also provides fast services to London Victoria.

The M25 is easily accessible linking with the other motorway networks, Gatwick, Heathrow, Stansted and City airports, Ashford and Ebbsfleet International Stations, the Channel Tunnel and Bluewater Shopping Centre.

There are a variety of good state and private schools in the area; Marsh Green and Dormansland have the two closest primary schools with secondary grammar schools found nearby in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells. For more information on train services and schools, please visit national rail and Kent-pages/education.

Hillands has a true sense of arrival as you approach via a farm track between arable fields
and then sweep into the driveway. There are a
wide range of outbuildings including a summer
house, single and double garages, selection of
storage buildings and former stables. There is
a large barn named by the family as the Wagon
Shed which has great potential (subject to the
usual consents) and has been used in the past
for general storage of agricultural equipment.

There is a delightful kitchen garden with a
number of greenhouses, vegetable garden and
fruit cages with a variety of fruit bushes. There
is a swimming pool with shed to house the
pump and heating system, and a former hard
tennis court beyond that requires resurfacing.

The rest of the grounds include areas of formal
lawn, mature woodland with delightful paths
meandering to a stream that flows through the
grounds with a number of bridges.

There is a large paddock to the south of the property and one to the east leading to the Roman road.
