NO CHAIN An exceptionally private 18th Century (Grade II listed) country house with later additions.
Hidden from view behind high walls and impressive entrance gates providing access to magical walled formal gardens and parkland. In all about 4 acres including (including 2 acre paddock) a good range of outbuildings.

This property has often been described as a magical house in a magical setting and comprises of a Grade II Listed 18th Century period house with a number of later additions set in 4 acres of enchanting grounds. (2 acres of which are paddock)

The house is beautifully screened from view and nestled within its own magnificent formal gardens and parkland style meadow land. Unusually, the house is surrounded by high walls, trees and hedges, providing total privacy.

Originally the head gardener’s house and kitchen garden of the Surrenden Dering Estate which was the ancestral home of the Dering family, although the mansion no longer exists.

The approach to the house is through high wooden, electric gates to a gravel driveway flanked by a line of Betula Grayswood Ghost trees on the right and a clipped yew hedge on the left with access to the garden through iron gates.

The driveway arrives at a formal turning circle in front of the house which overlooks the paddock which is fenced with black painted estate fencing.

The accommodation blends the original period of the house with the later additions, combining to create a good range of accommodation across both floors. Of particular interest is the orangery, providing a fine outlook over the gardens and an addition to the kitchen and sitting room.

The kitchen enjoys a 3-oven Aga with a 2-oven electric Aga module as well as bespoke, custom fitted units. Also of particular note is the Pigeonnier added at one end comprising of a well-designed utility room, walk in larder and shower room/WC on the ground floor and with its own staircase leading to a splendid first floor study with custom made oak fitted furniture. Large storage area above kitchen.

There are bedrooms on both floors including a guest suite at one end of the ground floor with independent entrance.

Houses of this character and setting are extremely rare to the market and this one represents the culmination of considerable time and investment during the 20 year current ownership

the house is wonderfully hidden from view behind high walls and entrance gates. The property is close to fruit orchards, typical of the Garden of England and quintessential villages, such as Pluckley. The village has a village shop, Post office, and a butcher, together with a pub/eatery, primary school, parish church, recreational amenities, all within walking distance and a mainline railway station.
