Tenure: Freehold

An interesting architecturally designed converted water tower with far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Situated within the Cranbrook School Catchment Area. Gardens and grounds, vegetable garden, paddock. EPC: D

A unique architecturally designed property which was converted in 2005 and featured in the television series 'Grand Designs'. It was originally a Lutyens water tower for the Great Maytham Hall Estate. The conversion was cleverly designed, using the very best materials including zinc and large sections of glass, with many contemporary features yet retaining the building's original agricultural / industrial history.

Some of the internal features include zoned underfloor heating throughout, solid oak flooring, painted steel staircase with glass banisters and oak treads, exposed steel beams, large ceramic flag stones on the ground floor, some exposed concrete beams (protecting its historic / archaeological content).

The first floor is a new build which nestles between the legs of the original water tower and projects outwards to create the main living area. The architect constructed the steel frame to continue the theme of the building with timber box bays cantilevered from the steels to provide space.

Another feature of the property is the horizontal extension in the sitting room which features an impressive dome lantern. The majority of the windows overlook the property's gardens and land with spectacular far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

Outside, the property is approached over an initially shared gravel driveway leading to a private parking area and detached double garage. The gardens surround the property and are split into two sections. They are laid to lawn with a multitude of mature trees, shrubs and plants. There is also a vegetable garden, greenhouse and a paddock with separate access from the lane.

The property is situated within walking distance of the village of Rolvenden and close to the popular villages of Benenden and Sandhurst which all provide for day-to-day needs with facilities including a butcher, post office, general store and well-regarded pubs. A little further away are the towns of Cranbrook and Tenterden with their picturesque High Streets offering a wider range of quality shops, restaurants, banks, supermarkets and a leisure centre at Tenterden. A more comprehensive range of facilities is available in Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone and Ashford. There is an outstanding choice of state and private schools in the area and we understand the property sits with the Cranbrook School Catchment Area.

Tenterden 3 miles, Cranbrook 6 miles, Staplehurst station 10 miles (London Bridge from 53 minutes), A21 – 10 miles, Ashford International 15 miles (London St Pancras from 36 minutes), M20(J9) 17 miles, Maidstone 19 miles, Tunbridge Wells 20 miles, Gatwick airport 44 miles, Heathrow airport 73 miles.
