Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This remarkable home sits within a sumptuous and well balanced plot of approximately 5.7 acres that comprises of mature and well-stocked gardens, paddocks, a tennis court and an area of woodland.

Great Pivington Farm sits proudly on the ridge of The Kent North Downs within the nationally designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and immediately above the historic Pilgrims' Way and the medieval village of Lenham. Its elevated position affords far reaching views across and beyond the Weald of Kent to the English Channel.

The property has enjoyed extensive high quality internal conversion and incorporation of an adjacent farm building to create a substantial family home which benefits from all one would expect of a modern property while retaining much of the original character and charm.


The accommodation throughout is considered large, with the main reception areas being particularly impressive in their scale and design. Every window offers views to the gardens or the views beyond making for an abundance of natural light throughout. Extensive use of oak and stone flooring adds to the feeling of character. Although the flow from room to room is entirely natural, the design of the accommodation offers the opportunity to provide a separate annexe if desired whether it be for mature children, guests or dependant relatives. The property is served by a monitored alarm system and benefits from automated wrought-iron entrance gates.

Great Pivington Farm is located in a quiet country lane within a very short drive of the beautiful village of Lenham, which offers a mainline rail station, junior and secondary schools, doctor's surgery and dentist plus country pubs and convenience stores - all centred around a delightful medieval market square.

Private, secondary and grammar schools are all accessible and can be found within the borough of Maidstone, with further facilities found towards Ashford, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and the Medway towns. The M20 motorway is only a few minutes away by car. This provides convenient access to the Capital or the Channel Ports, plus the high speed rail termini at either Ebbsfleet or Ashford. Journeys to London or the continent could not be easier.

The main terrace area is south-facing, accessible directly from the main reception rooms, and provides an extensive outdoor entertainment space and equally spectacular views across the Weald. Boundaries are formed of walls and hedging to provide privacy.

Generous horse paddocks lie to one side of the entrance drive. These paddocks are secured and divided by post and rail fencing. A full size modern tennis court with artificial surface is also found opposite the main entrance and driveway. The court is secured behind high chain link fencing. A small area of woodland is also included beyond the northern extremities of the paddocks.
