This very spacious and flexible home is superbly positioned on the fringes of a picturesque Kentish village on the edge of the North Downs. The county town of Maidstone with its vast array of amenities is just minutes away. Transport links are also convenient. Maidstone now offers high speed rail services to the capital in addition to its frequent standard services and the nearby M20 motorway affords simple routes to the capital, channel ports, Ashford International rail terminus and the channel tunnel terminus at Cheriton.

This area of Kent offers a wide range of school choices, with primary, secondary, grammar schools and private schools all found in the area.
 

The property itself is Grade II listed in recognition of its history and architectural importance. It is believed that evidence within its structure indicates that the property has origins dating back to the late 16th century.

The property has evolved over the following centuries and now is offered for sale as a home that can offer multi-generational living or, if required, be recombined to a form a very large family home. At present the property is arranged with the largest segment of the home enjoying five bedrooms served by four bath or shower rooms, with a spacious lounge, a study, a country style kitchen/breakfast room and a utility. A recent adaptation has created a wonderful self contained apartment which enjoys its own beautiful lounge, kitchen/breakfast area, stylish shower room and a double bedroom. Furthermore on the ground floor a self contained annex has been formed and is currently arranged with a sun room, lounge, kitchen/breakfast room, bedroom and bathroom.

The property throughout exudes character. Much of the structural framework has been restored and re-exposed creating a unique ambience. The barn has been extensively insulated, is mostly double glazed and despite its size has a distinct warmth. Central heating has been installed and to ensure efficiency, three separate gas fired boilers serve the property.

The property sits within a plot that approaches two thirds of an acre. A large lawn edged by a wide variety of mature trees extends to the rear boundary with neighbouring coppiced woodland beyond. Other areas of garden are arranged with a block-paved patio, vegetable and shingled beds and an ornamental pond.

The property is secured behind remotely controlled entrance gates that lead to a shingled driveway that is large enough for residents and several guests to park comfortably. A spacious double garage block provides secure parking and important storage. A first floor room above the garage bays could be considered suitable as a home office, store or games room.

Properties offering such size, character and flexibility in such an advantageous position are always a rare find. As such prospective buyers are advised to view and express their interest at the earliest opportunity.
