Hucking Hill House has most handsome elevations of flint with attractive brick detailing under a tiled roof. The house has been subject to a sympathetic programme of refurbishment and repair, carried out with great flair and attention to detail. The result is an impressive blend of character, comfort and convenience in what must now be one of the finest country houses in the area.
Highlights of the accommodation include the new kitchen with sleek modern cabinets with granite work surfaces together with a comprehensive range of high quality appliances and a light stone floor. Light floods in from the large windows, door and skylights; the wood- burning stove has a newly lined chimney. There are two reception rooms to the front, both with wood-burning stoves, and a really characterful sitting room at the rear with exposed beams and part oak flooring. The cloakroom is rather unusual, being in the newly restored 'tower' with exposed brick walls and raised roof pitch.
The bedrooms are most luxurious, all with super views over the gardens. Three have en-suite bathrooms and the remainder share a really large family bathroom.
Hucking Hill House occupies an exceptional rural position on The North Downs, in the parish of Hucking, a small rural community with an ancient church. Although the house is in an unusually quiet and rural spot, it is not difficult to drop down to the A20 and village of Bearsted via very quiet roads.
Bearsted has an excellent range of facilities including shops, pubs and restaurants and a railway station with regular services to London Victoria taking from 59 minutes. Maidstone provides a wide range of educational, recreational and shopping facilities, and the stations in Maidstone offer a variety of services to the West End, the City and St Pancras International.
Ebbsfleet International provides an alternative route to central London, taking just 18 minutes to St Pancras. The Channel Ports and Eurotunnel at Folkestone are accessible via the M20.
The property is approached from the lane through a smart new gate with the house name carved into it, and the drive leads to a large parking area at the front of the house. The drive continues to the rear where there are a range of outbuildings. These include a double garage and two large workshop/stores. There is planning permission for conversion to a one bed annexe, and lapsed planning permission for stables which could be reapplied for.
The gardens are quite stunning with mown lawns, colourful borders and a great number of mature trees. There is a charming paved terrace outside the sitting room with a pond nearby. The gardens lead to an area of woodland with the fenced paddock alongside. In total the area of paddock is about 3 acres.
