North Forstal Barn is a superb barn conversion with a stunning annexe, comprising a total of five bedrooms and spacious, flexible accommodation split between two outstanding residences. The welcoming main house has original timber beams throughout and an impeccable finish, while the annexe has a modern, contemporary style, with an open-plan reception area.

The sitting room, dining room and study provide a useful and practical living space. The sitting room benefits from a triple aspect and French doors leading to the gardens. The kitchen is well equipped with integrated appliances and wooden storage units at base and wall level.

To the first floor are three generous bedrooms, including the master, which has an en-suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom.

The Annexe has an impressive open-plan living space, with bi-fold doors bringing the outside in, and providing an abundance of natural light. The immaculate, contemporary décor includes exposed brickwork, wooden detailing to the ceiling and stylish light fittings, while the attention to detail continues in the wet room, with its floor-to-ceiling white tiling and sparse yet appealing suite. There are two bedrooms, with the generous master bedroom having fitted wardrobes.

Development Potential
Planning consent has been granted under reference Swale Borough Council planning ref: 15/510489/FULL for both the conversion of the Dutch Barn to an indoor swimming pool with a home office, and the erection of a garage block with annexe. Further details are available on request.

The property is situated in the heart of the delightful hamlet of Throwley Fostal, set in the midst of the stunning countryside of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village, little more than a small collection of houses, feels a long way off the beaten track, yet is still within easy reach of the bustling, historic city of Canterbury, and has easy access to the superb road networks of the M2 and M20 that join east Kent, west Kent and London.

Essential amenities can be found in Charing or Chilham, whilst further services, including supermarkets, shopping, leisure and educational services, can be found in Ashford, Canterbury and Faversham. Charing station provides easy access to London, either direct to London Victoria (1 hour 27 minutes) or to St. Pancras International via Ashford International (52 minutes).

The property is accessed via security gates, and approached via a tarmac driveway, which also provides ample parking space. In addition there is a large garage capable of housing multiple
vehicles, and with consent to replace with
an annexe connected to the main house..

The property has extensive grounds, with an inviting patio to the rear of the main house and a large area of decking to the rear of the annexe, both giving way to a vast west-facing garden which backs onto open countryside.

To the front of the property there is more land, plus a substantial barn, which has consent for adaptation to provide an indoor pool with additional home offices above.
