Externally, the plot is very well balanced, with ornate gardens, an impressive swimming pool terrace and a horse paddock of approximately one acre in size. The property is approached via a very quiet lane and is secured behind electronically operated entrance gates that open to a large driveway and parking area. The triple garage building with studio apartment above provides even further amenity.

This area is extremely convenient for those wishing to enjoy a truly peaceful lifestyle, yet within minutes the buyer could enjoy the superb facilities of both Maidstone or Ashford.

For those that may require high speed services to the Capital, Ashford international Station is a little over 10 miles by car. Both Lenham and Charing provide primary schools. A mixed secondary school is also found in Lenham, with grammar schools found in Maidstone & Ashford.
