Full description

Tenure: Freehold

As you turn into the large driveway and take your first glimpse of this property and Stables you will be enchanted. Surrounded by three acres of beautiful gardens with a natural pond, wonderful mature trees, a swimming pool, lawns stretching virtually as far as the eye can see and paddocks backing onto farmland, this beautiful Grade II listed property offers everything you could want in a quintessential English country house.

The original part of the five-bedroom homestead was believed to have been built around 1680 and you can still feel the atmosphere of this bygone era as you cross the threshold into the well-proportioned and stunning reception room with its beamed walls and ceiling, inglenook fireplace, oak floor and principal staircase. This room leads through to the magnificent and historic drawing room. Not only does this room have a lovely brick fireplace, doors to the large terrace, a beamed ceiling and central vertical beam it also includes historical meathooks and a glass inset that purports to be the oldest piece of glass in Kent!

It is a wonderful place to bring up a family and you can imagine throwing the most spectacular Christmas parties in the sitting room and the reception hall with both rooms classically decorated and fires burning in the hearth. There are stairs from the drawing room to the master bedroom suite and, wrapped around it, is a sun room/library with its walls of shelving on one side and external windows on the other. The original dining room also makes an excellent games room or it could be a great study if you have work to do at home or perhaps a cosy sitting room, where you can sit round the fire.

What the Owner says:


A completely different atmosphere envelops you once you go into the kitchen. Although the utility room is hidden behind a secret door in the old oak panelling, the kitchen offers everything you need for modern-day living with its trendy fitments and range cooker. It opens up to the impressive cathedral-like dining room/conservatory that is large enough to seat some 18 people around the table. This is probably where the family would spend much of their time, as it enjoys the sunshine all day and overlooks the gardens as well as the Jacuzzi and the large terrace, providing plenty of room for outdoor entertaining. The vast bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs will be a joy to any family. The master suite includes a stunning bathroom and dressing room and there are two further double bedrooms and a lovely Jack and Jill bathroom. The top floor includes two amazing double bedrooms with vaulted and beamed ceilings as well as stunning views across the grounds and a shower room in between. These rooms would be a delight for teenagers wanting somewhere a little different or could be used for bed and breakfast guests. An attractive annex has been created from the separate stable block. It makes an ideal home for elderly relatives, adult children or could become an excellent holiday let. It includes a charming living room with access to its own courtyard and vegetable garden area, a large and well-fitted kitchen/dining room as well as a downstairs bathroom and upstairs there are two bedrooms
