Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This property is a gorgeous detached property with its origin in the 17th century. It is idyllically tucked away on the outskirts of Petham village in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and nestles on the edge of 11.5 acres of its own parkland that includes impressive trees, woodland meadows and orchards. From the moment you sweep into the large front driveway and see the house with its charming beamed entrance porch you know you are in for a real treat and the first feature you see is the flint wall on one side of the 46ft hallway, which was original external wall.

There is a cosy sitting room with a wood burning stove and ceiling beam and a door to the fabulous dining room. It includes an impressive inglenook and wood burner, french doors to the terrace and exposed ceiling beams as well as fascinating wall beams. There are stairs to the first floor as well as a study, cloakroom and utility/boot room with a door to the kitchen garden. The modern part of the house includes a well proportioned country style kitchen/breakfast room with handmade units housing a range of appliances, an Aga, a walk-in pantry and a Welsh dresser. There is an elegant drawing room with built-in corner shelving, two ceiling beams, a brick chimney breast and log burner and French doors to the patio. Upstairs is a large family bathroom with a bath and separate shower as well as four double bedrooms with stunning rural views including the master with a wall of fitted wardrobes and an adjacent shower room with storage cupboards.

Beside the gravelled terrace is a summer house sensitively designed to blend with the house. The garden wraps around the property and includes a pagoda leading to the front drive and steps to the lawn interspersed with mature well stocked flower beds, trees and shrubs. A separate lawn leads to fruit bushes and a chicken coop and there is a vegetable garden with access to the orchard, a large gate entrance to the parkland and a separate driveway leading to a triple garage.

What the Owner says:

"We moved here 13 years ago because we loved the character of the house and the stunning location but now want to move nearer our children. It has been wonderful having the large parkland around us providing privacy, tranquility and stunning rural views. Over the years we have developed about three acres of the park as a lawned area interspersed with specimen trees leaving the remaining parkland divided into two excellent paddock areas if required. At the far end of the Parkland we have planted about 130 native trees to encourage the natural wildlife. In addition we have enjoyed access to nearby public footpaths and bridle paths for walks and rides through beautiful scenic countryside".
