Situation

Fawkham Hall is one of three properties forming Scudders Farm, a small group of converted farm buildings in this semi-rural yet extremely well connected village.

Fawkham is about 23 miles south east of central London. Road and rail connections are easily accessible with the A2 just 4 miles to the north and the A20 just 3 miles to the south both heading directly into the city. The neighbouring village of Longfield has a rail station (1.5 miles) offering frequent direct services to London Victoria from about 33 minutes. Ebbsfleet International is also under 6 miles away.

Longfield village offers a good selection of local shops for day to day needs and Bluewater shopping centre is only 5.5 miles to the north providing High Street, designer and department stores.

Fawkham village is surrounded by countryside, providing some delightful walks and there are a number of golf clubs in the vicinity. Also the world class motoring circuit, Brands Hatch, is under 3 miles to the south.

Fawkham has its own primary school, as do the nearby villages of New Ash Green, West Kingsdown and Hartley. Longfield and Meopham have secondary schools and there are Grammar schools for boys and girls in nearby Dartford, Gravesend and Chatham. There is also a good supply of independent schools in the area including St Michael's and Russell House in Otford, various in Sevenoaks, and Brown's School in Chelsfield.

Description

Fawkham Hall offers great flexibility and possibilities, comprising a character barn conversion with four bedrooms, a separate studio annexe and additional detached 529 sq ft outbuilding, all within about half an acre in this highly convenient rural location.

In addition, there is a further paddock amounting to about 2.65 acres with separate vehicular access from the lane available by separate negotiation.

Features

The main house is a character barn conversion, believed date back in part around 300 years.

It boasts open plan ground floor accommodation, three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor. A separately accessed double bedroom 4 with en suite shower room and a utility room adjoining the house.

The solid wood kitchen is fitted with wall and base units incorporating granite worktops, Rangemaster electric range cooker, integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer.

The open plan living and dining areas have York stone floors.

The property features an abundance of exposed beams to the walls and ceilings, which are a particular feature on the first floor where the rooms all have vaulted ceilings.

The shower rooms are all fitted with modern white suites.

The studio annexe also features stone flooring and similar kitchen units to those in the main house but with a wood block worktop and butler style sink. French doors open out to the courtyard terrace from the main reception room/bedroom and the en suite shower room features a digital multi-jet spa bath and shower.

In addition to the house and annexe is a detached timber-clad cabin with electrics, radiators and plumbing connected. The current owners use this for storage but it has been used as a play room/games room in the past. There is a shower room fitted and subject to any necessary consents it could be utilised as a second annexe.

Outside

The property benefits from excellent off road parking in the form of a broad level driveway with four bay car port to one side.

The garden is south-east facing and has been landscaped to provide a level lawn with gentle banks at the front and rear. From the top of the garden there is a lovely view over the property to the fields beyond.

The main house has a paved terrace to the front, ideal for summer entertaining and barbeques and the annexe has its own private courtyard terraces to the front and rear.
