Tenure: Freehold

Grade II Listed period barn in a peaceful rural position with lovely views. Cranbrook School Catchment Area. Gardens and grounds with swimming pool, vegetable garden. Stables, tack room, manege and paddocks. Detached garage, barns and store rooms. About 10.7 acres (further land available).

The property is a beautifully converted and immaculately presented Grade II listed barn with wonderful views over its own land and beyond. It is of brick base construction with timber clad elevations under a tiled roof and pretty cottage windows. It offers many period features including exposed timbers, wooden flooring and a brick fireplace with wood burner.

Internally, there are well-proportioned reception rooms providing flexible family accommodation. The spacious kitchen / breakfast room is a particular feature with a door leading onto the rear terrace and gardens as well as steps leading up to a family area. The kitchen has brick flooring, an attractive Aga and part vaulted ceiling.

The property is approached via an initially shared driveway which then splits onto its own private gravel parking area. There is a detached garage constructed of oak with a tiled roof providing two open bays and one closed. External wooden steps lead up to a room above the garage. To the rear of the property, there is a brick paved terrace and a separate timber framed building with pitched tiled roof housing a seating area.

The gardens are beautifully presented with lawned areas, mature hedging, well-stocked flower borders, established trees and a heated swimming pool with separate pool house. Gates lead through to various sections of gardens including a lovely vegetable garden and chicken house. These lead down to the stables, manege and outbuildings. The land continues on to the paddocks and in all the property extends to 9.44 acres. There is also a large pond with an island.
Further land is available by separate negotiation (Lot 2 - 21.47 acres).


The property is located in a lovely rural position on the edge of the popular village of Benenden with wonderful views over its own land and the countryside beyond. The village of Benenden provides for all the usual day-to-day needs with its post office and general store, butcher, two inns, parish church, primary school and village green with cricket pitch. Cranbrook and Tenterden, with their picturesque High Streets, offer a wider range of quality shops, restaurants, banks, supermarkets and a leisure centre at Tenterden.

The mainline station at Staplehurst provides a regular commuter service to London and the Eurostar Terminal at Ashford provides high speed trains to London and the continent.
