Property Description

Full description

A home of great distinction, enormous proportions and architectural brilliance, this four-bedroom statement property is a conversion from a former fruit store and represents a strikingly imaginative, modern family home wrapped in the fabric of a traditional Kentish barn. Idyllically set in rural Hernhill, close to Faversham, Whitstable and Canterbury amongst rolling hills and dramatic countryside views, with in excess of 4,000 square feet of accommodation, vaulted glass atrium and suspended bridge landing - this property will delight even the most discerning of buyers.

With an elegant yet contemporary interior that is flooded with natural light, and finished to the highest of specification, wow factor just abounds in this magnificent home. Approached via a gravel driveway there is ample off- road parking and access to the double garage and workshop. The porch gives way to an impressive hallway with feature floor to ceiling glass overlooking a mature olive tree within an internal, decked courtyard.

The main reception space is vast and breath-taking with kitchen, living and dining space all open plan, with two sets of double doors opening into the garden. Looking up, there’s a double height void space where one can marvel at the vaulted glass atrium and the exposed timbers of the original barn construction. There are two additional reception rooms on the ground floor currently utilised as a sitting room and study. There’s a utility room, storage spaces and a cloakroom/WC.

Upstairs the four spacious bedrooms, enjoying stunning views of the surrounding countryside, are thoughtfully arranged either side of two Jack and Jill bathrooms. There is also an additional shower room, which, like the bedrooms, is accessed via the striking raised landing. Outside there is a landscaped garden which complements the house perfectly with level lawns, decking and seating/dining area. A pretty hedge-lined front garden completes this outstanding residence.

The sought-after and vibrant village of Hernhill sits close to the historic market town of Faversham, popular coastal town of Whitstable and the Cathedral City of Canterbury with easy access to the A2 and M2 road links. The village has a primary school rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted and two delightful public houses. Nearby Boughton-under-Blean and Faversham offer a variety of amenities including shops, bars and restaurants, as well as the railway station in Faversham providing a high-speed service to London. There are many renowned private and grammar schools locally and in the wider area.

The Vendor's View - 2 Mount Farm Barn has looked after us well over the past eight years. Its positioning has been near perfect. Located in the heart of this quiet and family friendly village, surrounded by beautiful orchards and on the doorstep of the glorious Mount Ephraim estate. Flanked by two delightful village pubs, it is also within a short sprint of the charms of Faversham and Whitstable and of the conveniences of Canterbury. While for the dedicated commuter, the proximity of the A2 ensures that London commitments will never keep you too far from home.

While we were undoubtedly first attracted by its "Grand Designs" qualities, we fell in love with its warmth, flexibility and practicality. The stunning, open, central spaces that provide the heartbeat of the property have served with equal success as vibrant entertaining space for the adults and scooter racetrack/indoor football pitch for the younger members of the household. Meanwhile, the thoughtfully arranged reception rooms and generously proportioned bedrooms have provided peaceful and relaxing sanctuary when needed. The extensive internal use of glass turns even the stormiest days into a glorious spectacle, while the garden has proven equally suited to hosting barbecues and family cricket matches.

As our chapter in this wonderful house nears its conclusion, we have nothing but fond memories of our time here. We will miss it but hope that it brings as much joy to its next occupants as it has to us.
