DESCRIPTION This charming yet substantial Grade II Listed residence is situated in the heart of the picturesque Kentish village of Leeds, set upon a hillside above the River Len. Internally the home affords a distinctive and perfect balance of period charm and contemporary elegance with two large inglenook fireplaces, ancient oak beams to ceilings and walls, providing striking evidence of its past.

The principle residence is thought to date back hundreds of years but has in more recent years been lovingly updated to exacting standards by the current owners to provide a warm/versatile family home with well considered modern conveniences. Appointed over three floors, the property is configured with generous, light and well proportioned rooms.

The Approach

The residence is orientated sideways to the road by which it is reached, thus providing a deceiving degree of privacy and sense of seclusion. A long driveway to one side of the property leads to a good sized parking area, dressed in fine shingle to the rear of the property, sufficient for several vehicles. In addition there is a double garage located to the side of the two-story barn.

Step Inside

The ground floor is comprised of a wonderful double aspect contemporary kitchen/dining room, with a characterful stable door opening directly to the garden. A bespoke handmade fitted kitchen exhibits a comprehensive range of storage units, traditional Iroko wooden work surfaces, natural slate floor and a fully reconditioned Aga. In addition, a dedicated walk-in pantry compliments the kitchen perfectly. The principle sitting room features a spectacular inglenook fire place, with an imposing oak bressummer beam over. A secondary sitting room/library affords a cosy position in which to relax and enjoy a second inglenook fireplace. There is a study and also a downstairs utility/W.C. with space/plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, whilst a cellar running the length of the front of the house provides useful storage.

The first floor can be accessed via two separate staircases, positioned at opposing ends of the house. This level is comprised of three characterful bedrooms and two luxurious bath/wet rooms, one exhibiting a free standing roll top bathtub set upon claw and ball feet and the other a generous walk-in shower enclosure. A further staircase rises to the second floor, hosting a substantial master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, dressing area and partially vaulted ceiling, running most of the length of the house.

Step Outside

The garden to the rear is predominantly laid to lawn with prolifically well stocked beds to the boarders exhibiting a mature range of shrubbery, herbaceous plants and specimen trees offering privacy to the garden. A well positioned sun terrace to the rear of the house provides and ideal spot to entertain, relax unwind and to enjoy the garden. A traditional Well, (likely to have been used in olden times by the neighbouring Forge) now feeds water to the fishpond and provides an interesting focal point to this beautiful garden.
