DESCRIPTION
Millers Barn is a charming and characterful detached converted miller's barn dating, we believe, around 1890 and now creates a fabulous and flexible home, of attractive flint, brick and weatherboarding under a Kent peg tile and slate roof.

This beautiful home is predominantly arranged on one level with the added benefit of a bedroom with en suite and study to the first floor. It has been much improved by the current owners and comprises a pleasant entrance reception room which has exposed beams and glass roof, flint walls and panel doors opening through to the lovely dining room with semi-vaulted ceiling. The charming sitting room has an inglenook feature fireplace with wood-burner, exposed beam and attractive balustrade staircase, which leads to the first floor.

The well fitted bespoke kitchen/breakfast room has a range of base and wall mounted cabinets, some glass-fronted for display, recess for Range cooker (available by separate negotiation), integrated appliances, all complemented by Corian work surfaces, and French doors open onto a delightful courtyard garden. Off the kitchen is a useful utility/boot room.

The majority of the bedroom arrangements are located on the ground floor, with the master bedroom having a range of built-in wardrobes, en suite shower room, and panel doors opening onto the rear gardens. There are two
further good sized bedrooms, an elegantly fitted and tiled family bathroom and two deep shelved walk-in store rooms.

To the first floor is a further bedroom with en suite facilities and study/landing area.

The property is beautifully presented throughout, capturing character and charm for this lovely period home.
