DESCRIPTION  

Rarely available are homes of this quality, and here you have an impressive grade II listed farmhouse with a stunning Georgian façade to one side, as well as a newly extended barn and oast conversion all set in around 1.4 acres of grounds. As well as the two homes, there is a large triple garage block that currently has planning permission granted to turn it into an annexe, should you require one.

The main house is a spacious period home full of character and features that have been added to through the ages. From the oldest part of the house there are fine examples of 16th century inglenook fireplaces, an impressive array of exposed oak beams, mullion windows and oak floors. In the later Georgian extension you have the grandeur of high ceilings, clean symmetrical lines, large bright rooms with casement windows, flexible use of the rooms and an ornate staircase and landing that is so graceful and typical is the era. The house also boast two entrances, one Georgian and one 16th century, so you can choose which you prefer!

The stone and timber clad barn has recently undergone a huge make-over and the roundel has been reconstructed to its former glory, making a wonderful barn and oast conversion that houses two bedrooms with a stunning en-suite in the top of the roundel and a fully functioning cowl.

Add to this a triple garage block with further planning permission for an annex, stunning formal landscaped gardens, as well as private enclosed garden for the oast, newly fenced and hedged perimeter and a lovely pond that has also been fully fenced off making the gardens child and dog proof. The whole farm complex has been transformed into a haven for family life within a semi-rural setting.

Situated just off the A229 and on the edges of the parishes of Marden and Staplehurst, the property is surrounded by farmland and open countryside. The village centres are full of a good range of shops and Marden, in particular, has wonderful farm store with local produce. The mainline station in Staplehurst is around 1.5 miles away and will get you into London within the hour. Further afield are the main county towns of Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone, both with excellent shopping and recreation facilities.
