Buckhole Farm has one of the most beautiful Georgian facades in North Kent, with mellow brick elevations with a pattern of burnt headers and symmetrically placed sash windows under a Kent peg tiled roof.

Steps lead up to the fielded and panelled front door, which opens to the staircase hall. To the right is the 30 foot drawing room, a bright room with large sash windows facing both front and rear. Opposite is the dining room with a inglenook fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with light wood cabinets, and opens to a useful scullery on the north side of the house.

The first floor has a comfortable arrangement of three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a shower room. There are lovely views over the garden, orchards and countryside beyond. On the second floor are two further bedrooms and a store room.

Buckhole Farm is set in a fine rural position about 1/4 mile from the village of High Halstow, which has a primary school and inn. The nearest station is at Higham.

A comprehensive range of facilities is available within the cathedral city of Rochester. Bluewater Retail Park is easily reached via the A2, with a wide variety of shops including a John Lewis and Marks & Spencer. Schools in the area include good independent and grammar schools in Rochester.

Transport communications are excellent with fast access via the A289 to the M2 which links to Ebbsfleet International station with a journey time to London St Pancras of just 17 minutes.

The North Kent Marshes are nearby. Internationally important for wildlife, they offer great opportunity for walking and bird watching.

The property is approached via a no through lane, and stands in 0.65 of an acre of garden and grounds. There is private parking at the front, with an area of grass orchard.

A gate in a wrought iron fence leads to the front garden, with a path to the front door. The garden continues to the side and rear, and is in the main surrounded by a high wall, with a good selection of trees, shrubs and borders. There is a garden shed, outside WC and store. To the front of the house and beyond the garden is a paddock of about 0.75 of an acre.
