Full description


Upon entering through the Kent peg tiled porch into the welcoming entrance hall with honey coloured beamed ceiling, painted panelled walls, herringbone parquet flooring and a wide brick inglenook open fireplace, stoked for those cold winter evenings, it’s like stepping back in time. The hall is in the centre of the house and leads onward to the further spacious entertaining rooms. The large drawing room with an inglenook with bressumer above and inset wood burner has beamed ceiling and engineered oak flooring, with views through the double glazed casement windows over the drive and lawns beyond. The majority of the windows are wood casement and double glazed, a rarity within a listed property. From the lounge you can access the study, situated toward the southern end of the property with views over the garden and a pretty brick fireplace with wooden mantel. Returning to the entrance hall a pine door provides access to the family room that also benefits from an alternative entrance from the kitchen lobby. The family room was added some years previous with double aspect views over the drive and gardens. A door gives access to the utility and boiler area together with WC and stable door to rear patio. The kitchen has granite worktops, bespoke fitted larder and wall and floor units with integral dishwasher and microwave, an island with storage units below and open area to sit at. Under a wide bespoke mantle sits the black Aga with chrome lids and further cupboard units to the side. Slate flooring extends through to the stunning painted timber orangery with two sets of double doors opening to the paved patio and terraced areas overlooking the gardens.

The main wooden staircase ascends from the drawing room to a wide landing with exposed beams and fireplaces at either end. The master bedroom suite is triple aspect and comprises of a dressing area with fitted wardrobes, leading through to a large ensuite with roll top bath, shower cubicle WC and sink with vanity unit below. Bedroom 2 has an ensuite shower room with sink and interconnects to bedroom 3, both rooms have exposed timbers and a quaint door returns to the landing with fireplace and doors to bedrooms 4 and 5, both with ensuite shower rooms, WC and sink units. A staircase rises to bedroom 6; from here you can enter the insulated and partly boarded attic room with windows and boarded floor of around 41ft x 11ft and planning permission in place to complete the conversion.

Gardens and Grounds

The property lies behind wooden electrically operated gates into a shingle drive with lawns to the left and large Victorian greenhouse (in need of refurbishment).  As you pass the property a large area provides for parking together with numerous outbuildings, including a three bay garage incorporating car port, log store and workshop and further single garage and bin store. Post and rail fencing separates the drive from the formal gardens with a pedestrian gate opening to mainly lawned grounds extending to approximately 2 acres with a large area adjoining the orangery providing a wonderful private terrace.
