Full description

Forming part of Kent's historic landscape and rumoured to be the oldest house in The Village with parts believed to date back to circa 1485. Ash Farm is a Grade II listed Wealden Hall house that exudes charm and character. It retains many original features from wood panelling, red brick floors, exposed beams and a stunning Inglenook fireplace.  

The property is arranged over three floors, offers flexible family accommodation and has been sympathetically restored.  

To the ground floor the accommodation consists of large entrance hall, a drawing room with wood panelling and inglenook fireplace, a family room with log burner which leads onto a study, a farmhouse style kitchen/diner, large utility room, boiler room and downstairs cloakroom. To the first floor there are two double bedrooms and one single, two bathrooms and a dressing area. To the second floor there is a split level double bedroom and a large storage room. 

The property sits within a generous 2.5 acre plot which is split into two paddocks and a lovely garden which is mainly laid to lawn with flower beds and an enclosed listed pound to the front of the property.  

The property is approached via an electric five bar wooden gate with a driveway that leads to ample off road parking and a detached listed two storey barn which is currently used for storage (potential to develop subject to planning permission). 

Smarden has an abundance of lovely timber framed houses, many of which are listed. The medieval Church is called the Barn of Kent due to its wide scissor-beamed roof, which amazingly is not supported by any pillars. In the church hangs a copy of the Charter, first granted by Edward III and endorsed by Elizabeth I, giving permission to hold a weekly market and an annual fair. The Village has a community spirit with lots of local activities and can still boast a local Post office, Butchers and several notable Country Inns as well as the local Primary School. The pretty Village of Headcorn (some 3 miles) has a varied selection of individual shops including Sainsbury's and a Mainline Station providing fast links to central London. For a more comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities the town of Tenterden (some 7 miles) provides a good variety of shops along its tree lined High Street including a Waitrose Supermarket and a Tesco Superstore.  

Ashford (some 10 miles away) is a much larger Town where there are lots of national chain stores and a much praised Designer Outlet. The new high speed rail link to London from Ashford International takes only 38 minutes.
