Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An exceptional three bedroom converted stables, in a rarely found elevated hamlet setting with far reaching rural views over Kent countryside, with gardens of a third of an acre and beautifully presented, bright accommodation.

The South Stables is a very special property situated in an elevated position, benefiting from far reaching rural views. The property is located within a very rarely found setting in the hamlet of Wickhurst Farm, a community of houses that once formed a model farm in Victorian Times. The farm was sympathetically converted in the early 1990s and many of the residents have lived in the hamlet ever since, meaning properties here are rarely available. Other than the neighbours within the hamlet, the property is very secluded, surrounded by farmland and lovely countryside at the end of a long shared driveway.

South Stables has an exceptional position within Wickhurst Farm. The house and main garden face South with stunning views. As a converted stables, the house retains a huge amount of character, both inside and out. The property is beautifully presented, with neutral décor and features high ceilings throughout. Many of the rooms have a dual aspect allowing for maximum penetration of natural light and views of the gardens and stunning outlook. The accommodation offers fantastic balance, with three bedrooms, including a dual aspect master bedroom with a stunning vaulted ceiling and french doors opening to the rear courtyard, a modern shower room, utility room, spacious hallway with room for a study area, bright kitchen and impressive 27'4 x 14'1 sitting / dining room. The reception room benefits from dual aspect windows and french doors, fabulous views and an attractive open fire. The kitchen is a real hub of the home with far reaching spectacular views framed by more french doors.
