A beautifully presented Grade II Listed property in a popular and convenient location. Fantastic family accommodation with period features. Quadruple garage with 1 bed annexe above. Attractive gardens and grounds with swimming pool, tennis court, vegetable garden, orchard, paddocks and stabling.
A wonderful Grade II Listed country house constructed of brick with part tile hung upper elevations under a tiled roof. We believe parts of the property date back to the 15th Century and, although it has been refurbished by the current owners, it still retains many period features such as impressive fireplaces, exposed beams and attractive bay windows. There are well-proportioned reception rooms and fantastic family accommodation totalling in excess of 7000 sq.ft. in the main house and including the garage with ancillary accommodation above.
The house is approached via an electronically operated gated entrance over a gravel driveway leading to the front of the house, additional parking and the quadruple garage which has a separate workshop and two store rooms. Above the garage there is an annexe providing a sitting room with balcony, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
The attractive gardens are a particular feature and are split into various sections. The gardens and grounds include a private and sheltered vegetable garden, two greenhouses, an orchard with office / cricket pavilion, formal gardens, a tennis court and securely fenced swimming pool with paved surround and a pool house cloakroom and sauna.
There is also a detached stable building providing 3 stables, barn and tack room. Beyond this is a fully enclosed chicken run and also a fenced paddock. There is a further paddock, currently used as a wild meadow, and in all the property extends to just under 8 acres.
The property is situated close to the centre of the popular village of Matfield and close to the village of Brenchley which both offer good shopping for day to day needs. Nearby Paddock Wood offers a wider range of facilities, including Waitrose, as well as a mainline station serving London. The larger towns of Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge have a broader range of commercial, shopping and leisure facilities. There are a number of well-regarded schools in the area including public and grammar schools for both boys and girls.
