Ingleden Park house is an attractive and
substantial period house listed Grade II. With
16th century origins, the house has a long
and interesting history. The elevations are of
mellowed brick with some crenulations under a
multitude of pitched and tiled roofs.

The accommodation is arranged over three
floors with a split level first floor and integral
annex which combine to provide a very
comfortable and versatile home.

The house has great character with generously
proportioned rooms throughout benefitting
from a wealth of period features including large
sash windows, high ceilings, open fireplaces,
oak flooring and staircase, timber wall panelling
and traditional cast iron radiators. Many rooms
enjoying lovely views over the extensive gardens
and grounds.

Historical note: Ingleden Park was formally
known as Knock which belonged at one time
to the Morphett Family and the Norley Family
and was also reputed to be the residence of
Baroness Burdett-Coutts.


Ingleden Park House is set within glorious
landscaped gardens of about 2.5 acres. A
long private driveway of over ¼ of a mile is
approached by two sets of electric gates and
culminates in a parking and turning area to the
front and side of the house.

On one side of the property is an oak framed
triple bay garage with a separate single garage
to one side.

The landscaped gardens are mainly laid to lawn
and interspersed with a variety of young and
mature trees, shrubs, borders and a productive
vegetable garden. Trees include Wellingtonia,
Redwood, pears and apple in addition to a
variety of others.

There is a heated outdoor swimming pool and
an all-weather tennis court.

In addition to the 2.5 acres is a further 13.3 acres
of land which offers wonderful woodland walks, a
bluebell wood and far reaching views.

The property benefits from a secondary entrance via Swain Road.


The property sits in a unique setting well away
from busy roads, yet is only about 1.5 miles
away from the picturesque town of Tenterden.
The town is well known for its tree lined high
street and offers a good range of amenities
