Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A truly unique and one of a kind three bedroom detached home that has been converted from a water tower, set in grounds of around 1.4 acres with far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside in a popular village within the CSCA.

This cleverly designed home has captured the essence of retaining the original structure of the water tower, yet combining an amazing living space with sun light creating different angles throughout the day, making this a truly individual place to live.

The entrance hall offers cloakroom, utility room and a captivating square spiral staircase winding up through the whole of the home with floor to ceiling windows, which allow breath taking views from every step. The main reception space is divided into three areas, including dining area, kitchen/breakfast area and sitting room. The well equipped kitchen offers an array of high gloss units with integrated appliances and granite worktops, this creates a sleek and stylish feel. In addition there is a breakfast bar area with a wide landscaped window to enjoy your morning coffee. The sitting room offers windows to all sides, access with steps leading down to the decking area, suspended triangular bottled gas log burning stove and impressive dome lantern. The first floor offers two double bedrooms, and a modern bathroom. Finally on the second floor is the triple aspect master suite with built in storage and modern en suite shower room.

Externally the property is approached over an initially shared gravel driveway leading to a private sweeping drive and into a large parking area, detached double garage and pathway to front. The gardens surround the property and offer a laid to lawn area with a multitude of mature trees, shrubs and plants. There is also a vegetable garden, greenhouse and a paddock with a well-stocked orchard with 28 fruits trees including apples, plum and green gage. In addition, there is a raised decking area which provides a great entertaining area to make the most of the fantastic far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

Some of the internal features include zoned under floor heating throughout, solid oak flooring, painted steel staircase with glass banisters and oak treads, exposed steel beams, large ceramic flag stones on the ground floor, some exposed concrete beams (protecting its historic / archaeological content).

An architecturally designed property which was converted in 2005 and featured in the television series 'Grand Designs'. It was originally a Lutyens water tower for the Great Maytham Hall Estate. The conversion was cleverly designed, using the very best materials including zinc and large sections of glass, with many contemporary features yet retaining the building's original agricultural / industrial history.

The property is situated within walking distance of the village of Rolvenden which provide local amenities including a post office, general store and well-regarded pubs. A little further away are the towns of Cranbrook and Tenterden with their picturesque High Streets offering a wider range of quality shops, restaurants, banks, supermarkets and a leisure centre at Tenterden. A more comprehensive range of facilities is available in Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone and Ashford. There is an outstanding choice of state and private schools in the area and we understand the property sits with the Cranbrook School Catchment Area.
