Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Dating back to circa 1525 with later additions, this Grade II listed farmhouse set in formal grounds and paddocks approaching 1.3 acres presents a superb opportunity to acquire a slice of rural life. Surrounded by Kent countryside, whilst being only a mile or so from the nearest amenities and outstanding schools.

Once one of the most thriving farms in the area, the whole farm underwent a high quality conversion by WH Simmonds and the farmhouse now sits amongst quality conversions yet enjoying a high degree of privacy.

A wealth of accommodation occupies three floors, a generous bespoke family kitchen complete with Godin range cooker with walk-in larder, leads to a large family/dining room with imposing Inglenook fireplace with multi-fuel stove, a morning room and fabulous lounge boasting a further stove which is perfect for cosy nights in.

The cellar rooms have been converted to a cinema/children's room and has a votive altar believed to honour the Goddess Nehalennia.

To the first floor the master suite affords substantial bedroom with vaulted ceiling, en-suite dressing room with bespoke wardrobes and en-suite bath/shower room with roll top bath.

There are two further double aspect bedrooms, one en-suite and family bathroom with two bedrooms to the second floor.

The property retains all the integrity of the period with imposing central hand carved staircase and sash windows with usable shutters, exposed beams and brickwork with quality oak and period doors throughout.

Outside, the property is approached via a five bar gate. The driveway affords ample parking leading to a barn garage of 38'. The formal patio terrace offers a hydro pool and gardens are laid to lawn with a substantial period grain store offering a variety of uses.

The formal gardens lead to fenced paddock backing onto open fields with greenhouse and vegetable garden.
