DESCRIPTION Built in the early part of the 1900's, this charming detached farmhouse is full of character and contains lots of period features including fireplaces, stripped wood flooring, picture rails, high ceilings and good sized rooms. The house has been modernised over time with new white aluminium double glazed windows and most recently, a brand new shower room. There is a real 'heart of the home' kitchen/diner which is large enough for a good sized family dining table and chairs and has a really lovely outlook over the gardens beyond. For relaxing there is a choice of the family room or sitting room, both with feature fireplaces and views out to the front. Ideal for keeping coats and boots out of the house, there is a useful boot room, plus a boiler/utility room where you can also dry your laundry. Upstairs are 4 good sized bedrooms and the family bathroom, plus stairs to the loft room which could be an ideal teenagers den or office, or if you wanted a master suite, then could be converted subject to the required consents. Outside you have the Lodge, which is laid out with an integral garage, plus 3 bedrooms and a good size kitchen/diner and lounge. This is ideal as annexe accommodation for guests or family members, or for rental as a holiday let, and comes complete with its own garden area.

Outside the grounds total approx. 1.5 acres and are laid out with an in and out driveway for the house and lodge, gardens that encircle the house, including a typical kitchen garden, plus the paddock with its own separate vehicular access for a horse box or trailer. In the field you will find the pole barn containing 2 stables and a lock up store/garage as well as a feed area to the rear. There is also another barn of a good size which is fitted with power and light. Beyond the paddock there are fields and an off shoot of the River Beult, which is great for occasional fishing. All in all, this is the perfect property to raise a family that enjoys the outdoors, as there are cycling routes and rambling tracks all around, as well as additional grazing which could be negotiated with a local farmer.

Situated on the outskirts of the village of Staplehurst, the mainline station is under 2 miles away, and the village itself contains a supermarket, post office, doctors, dentist and pharmacy as well as a few other local shops and renowned butchers.
