DESCRIPTION  

Set in lovely gardens and grounds is this substantial detached 4/5 bedroom detached family home that also comes with an assortment of useable outbuildings.

The newly extended kitchen/breakfast room is light and airy with a part vaulted ceiling, room for a breakfast table and a central cooking area. In the lounge you have the ability to separate it into two areas with a wood burner to one end and an inset designer gas feature fire to the other. The dining room has nice fitted display shelving, while the snug also doubles up as bedroom 5, and has a new wood burner fitted. Upstairs is a good sized master bedroom with lovely views and a super modern wet room style en-suite. The remaining bedrooms are all doubles, with the guest bedroom having a lovely vaulted ceiling. There is a large bathroom with integral airing cupboard.

Outside is where you will want to spend your leisure time wandering the landscaped garden which has separate themed seating areas, a lovely Indian sandstone terrace set around the heated swimming pool, a big pool house with shower room and hot tub, summer house with woodburner, a pergola covered eating area by the pool, two ponds and a large vegetable garden.

There are further outbuildings with potential for conversion and a separate vehicular access way and a large parking area by the house for numerous cars. The plot totals around an acre in size.

There is also the possibility of purchasing another 1/2 acre of land which includes a small paddock, as well as the stables and equestrian facilities and another 9 acres of land. All of this is subject to further negotiation, and the whole is available as one lot.

Located within the sought after Cranbrook School Catchment Area and a short drive from the centre of the village of Benenden. Further afield will take you to either the market town of Cranbrook, or to the main town of Tenterden where you will find the main shopping facilities.
