Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A truly magnificent attached 16th century barn conversion, set within mature grounds of approx. three quarters of an acre in a particularly accessible, yet wonderfully rural setting. East Homestall Barn was sympathetically converted some 30 years ago, with great care having been taken to combine its immense character with the needs of a modern family home. The end result is generous and well arranged accommodation spread over two floors, with all the traditional features one would expect in a barn conversion, such as a host of beautiful exposed beams throughout every room, alongside several vaulted ceilings, solid oak latch-key doors and an inglenook fireplace in the drawing room.

Upon entering East Homestall Barn, you are greeted by a truly exceptional galleried and vaulted reception hall with a spectacular oak split staircase rising to the first floor.

The principle reception room is a vast dual aspect drawing room measuring approximately 34 feet and dominated by a grand inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove.

Adjacent to the drawing room is a generously proportioned dining room with views over the rear garden. Whilst these two rooms are essentially open to one another, a large area of open studwork does create some sense of division between the two rooms.

Also accessed via the reception hall is a large, ground floor bedroom with an adjacent cloakroom which could easily act as an en suite facility.

To the rear of the barn you have the heart of the house – a splendid kitchen/breakfast room with a beamed and part vaulted ceiling, a dual aspect and lovely views over the gardens. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted with an excellent range of bespoke traditionally styled wall and floor units set around solid oak worktops, integrated appliances, a twin Belfast sink and a lovely slate floor. There is an exposed brick chimney breast with an oak bressumer ideal to house a range cooker and a marvellous marble topped island and breakfast bar. French doors open onto the rear garden and another door leads to the integral double garage.

The kitchen is complemented by a useful boot room and a large laundry room.

On the first floor, a spectacular galleried landing looks down over the reception hall, with an impressive master suite on one side and the remaining bedrooms and family bathroom on the other side.

The master bedroom is a dual aspect room with a beamed and vaulted ceiling, ample built-in wardrobes and a well appointed en suite bathroom, finished with natural stone wall and floor tiles.

The remaining three bedrooms are all double rooms, with the second bedroom having an en suite shower room. The family bathroom is a particularly good size and has a traditionally styled suite including a rolled top claw foot bath and a separate shower enclosure.

OUTSIDE:

East Homestall Barn is set well back from the lane and is approached via a long, gravelled driveway which leads to an area with parking for several cars and an integral double garage. The property is set within a generous plot of approximately three quarters of an acre of beautiful and mature gardens which are predominantly to the rear of the barn. These are arranged as several block paved and gravelled patio areas adjacent to the barn, a large expanse of lawn interspersed with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs and an all weather tennis court. The gardens have been well maintained and enjoy a good degree of privacy.

SITUATION:

The village of Graveney is a small yet widely dispersed village situated in between the historic market town of Faversham and the charming seaside town of Whitstable and predominantly surrounded by farmland. The village is served by The Four Horseshoes public house, a primary school, a regular bus service and All Saints Church, a beautiful fourteenth century church. Furthermore, the Saxon Shore Way passes along the Graveney marshes, providing a beautiful walk between Faversham to Seasalter and Whitstable.

Whilst the surrounding farmland gives a wonderfully rural feel, Homestall Lane enjoys excellent road communications as it connects with Brenley roundabout, the point at which the A2, A299 and M2 converge, providing easy access to Faversham, Canterbury, Dover, Thanet and London.

The nearby market town of Faversham offers a wide range of shopping, leisure and educational amenities, including a good selection of primary schools and two secondary schools, including the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. Faversham has a mainline railway station with a high speed rail link to London St. Pancras.

The city of Canterbury (8 miles) is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, with a thriving city centre offering a wide array of High Street brands alongside a diverse mix of independent retailers, cafes and international restaurants. The city also offers a fine selection of sporting, leisure and recreational amenities, including the Marlowe Theatre.

The seaside town of Whitstable, famous for its seafood and annual oyster festival held at the vibrant harbour and picturesque quayside is just 6 miles away. The town also has a variety of independent shops and boutiques, good local primary and secondary schools, numerous pubs, restaurants and excellent leisure facilities.
