Manor Barn is a handsome Grade II Listed property with weather-boarded elevations on a stone plinth under a Kent peg tiled roof, with a stone single storey wing to the side. The property is extremely well presented and has great character with plenty of natural light through the many large windows.

The fabulous kitchen/dining area is open to the roof pitch with attractive beams which are complemented by the oak floor. The kitchen is well fitted with bespoke cabinets with granite work surfaces and a dual fuel Aga.

The staircase hall leads to a cosy family room and the principal sitting room is triple aspect with a mellow central timber. The guest suite of bedroom and shower room is accessed from the entrance hall.

Upstairs there are some fascinating timbers displayed on the landing, which leads to the bedrooms. The master has an en-suite shower room, and there is also a large family bathroom. Bedroom 4 is currently arranged as a study.

Manor Barn is one of a small cluster of large period properties set off Fairbourne Lane and lies in an area of beautiful countryside around a mile south of the village of Harrietsham. Village facilities include a shop, public house, Post Office, and pre school/primary school. A wider range of facilities can be found in the county town of Maidstone and the market town of Ashford. The area is well served by schools catering for all ages and abilities including Sutton Valence school, Maidstone Grammar, King’s School at Rochester and Ashford School

The High Speed Link to St Pancras takes 18 minutes from Ebbsfleet International or 37 minutes from Ashford International. Harrietsham railway station has regular services to London Victoria from around 70 minutes, and Headcorn Station has services direct to London Bridge and Cannon Street.

Sporting and leisure facilities in the area include golf at a number of nearby courses, including the public course at Leeds Castle, point to point racing at Charing (7 miles), sailing on the north Kent coast, and walks and rides on the North Downs.

The property is approached from the lane over the farm drive, with an area of garden and parking for three vehicles to the south. To the north is a 5-bar gate which leads to further hard-standing and access to a large store attached to the side of the barn. There is a paved terrace outside the front door, and a path leads from the front garden round the side of the barn to the main gardens at the rear.

The garden is delightful, with plenty of interest provided by trees and shrubs. There is a deck terrace with hot tub positioned in a sunny spot. A bank of woodland slopes down to the boundary with the lane in which is a shady sitting area. The present owner manages the garden to maximise the benefit to wildlife.
