Full description

Located down a private road in the heart of Frant village, this Grade II listed mansion, built in 1855, designed by architect Lewis Vulliamy, hosts this beautiful 2 bedroom apartment. Taking in the stunning acres of communal gardens is a delight in itself. Views of the Kent and Sussex countryside stretch as far as Pilgrims Way in Canterbury and distract the mind from modern day life. This home really is a great mix of original features and contemporary mod cons. From the grand entrance hall, with the original oak staircase and marble flooring, you can start to explore this beautiful property. The dining/drawing room features magnificent, tall sash windows, and extraordinary high ceilings. The mezzanine level here, with wrought iron balustrades, allows you to better see the original architrave and mouldings. The kitchen, converted from the mansion's original sun room, features granite worktops and slate flooring. In the warmer months, extend out onto the patio are and enjoy the tranquility of the setting whilst sipping on a glass of your favourite tipple, by yourself or with guests. Retire to the impressive main bedroom, originally the morning room. As the rest of the apartment, this is immaculately presented, with a mezzanine level dressing area and superb ensuite bathroom, tiled in marble and featuring a free standing bath and double vanity units. The second bedroom is right next to a beautifully fitted shower room. Steeped in character and history, viewings are advised to fully appreciate this home.

What the Owner says:

We have thoroughly enjoyed living in this wonderful setting. From the garage and parking, to wine cellar and quirky mezzanines this is a truly delightful place to call home. The windows in the dining/drawing room are a great frame to view the changing season outside and enjoy the glorious countryside surroundings and gardens which are brilliantly maintained. We are close to Frant station and village amenities and all within a short drive of Tunbridge Wells and all the shopping and entertainment on offer there. It is with heavy hearts that we are moving on, and wish the new owners many happy times here.
