The Old School House was originally constructed Circa 1865 and served as the Nettlestead village school for over 100 years. In 1991 the property was converted to become a unique and extremely charming family home with an abundance of period features with near palatial size rooms. Boasting in-excess of 4,000 SQ/FT of incredibly versatile accommodation this desirable home affords ample space in which to entertain and or work from home if so required.
Exhibiting quiet striking fireplaces, original wooden floors, galleried landing and a dramatic vaulted ceiling housing a glazed office/bedroom six. Perhaps most noteworthy is the original school clock, housed within the gable end of the front elevation, the facia of this timepiece is viewed externally whilst the inner workings of its pendulum mechanism provide a timeless internal feature.
The ground floor is comprised of four receptions, kitchen/diner, utility room, separate dining room, cloakroom, an office, living room and the hugely impressive 44ft long old school hall, currently designated as the drawing room.
Two staircases rise to the first floor where the five/six bedrooms are split between the east and west wing of the home. The master suite is served by its own staircase affording desirable privacy. It is bathed in dual aspect light and boasts a walk-in wardrobe, en-suite shower and a roof terrace with breathtaking views. Bedroom two is served by an en-suite bathroom whilst the three remaining bedrooms share a family bathroom. There is an additional office/ bedroom six on the first floor with impressive views over the old school hall below.
The principle residence benefits from having an attached newly renovated one bedroom annexe with its own front door. Comprised of a state-of-the-art kitchen, luxurious bath/shower room, lounge, bedroom and large entrance hall.
The property occupies a plot of approximately 0.35 of an acre made up of lawns to the North and South sides of the house exhibiting a mature range of shrubbery and specimen trees. French doors open from the dining room to a sun terrace providing an ideal spot to enjoy al fresco dining whilst courtyard areas to the rear of the house offer additional area to enjoy.
An extremely large former air raid shelter provides an extremely versatile space. Currently configured as a large gym with shower, W.C. and five person Nordic sauna. This area could easily be utilised for those wishing to run a business from home or additional auxiliary accommodation subject to relevant planning permission.
Garaging & Parking
There is a brick built double garage to include a workshop area, with power and light. A driveway dressed in fine shingle wraps around the home and provides ample parking for numerous vehicles.
The property is idyllically situated in a semi-rural position within the Hamlet of Nettlestead, yet benefits from the nearby amenities of West Malling with its ecliptic mix of restaurants, pubs and Boutique shops whilst Maidstone provides a more comprehensive range of mainstream shopping and leisure facilities. Larger accessible towns include Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks, where there are highly regarded private schools, superb restaurants and wine bars. Commuter links are also excellent with the M20 and M2 motorway networks allowing easy access to Bluewater and Lakeside shopping centres and a choice of mainline railway stations are only a short distance away providing direct links to London and the coast.
Paddock Wood station operates commuter services to London Charing Cross with journey times from 52 minutes. The M20 gives access to the M25, the ports and Ashford International which offers services to London in 37 minutes and also to the continent.
A range of schools in the area include Nettlestead Pre-School, Wateringbury C of E Primary School, numerous secondary and grammar schools in Maidstone and Tonbridge, including the Schools at Somerhill, plus Sutton Valence Preparatory and Senior Schools.
