Full description

PRICE RANGE: £1,700,000 to £1,750,000

This imposing traditional, but unlisted, Kentish barn sits centrally on its generous plot on the edge of the village. The property was originally converted in the 1990’s but has been significantly updated by the current owners.

The property is approached through a sweeping gravel driveway from a gated private lane servicing the converted barn, farm cottage and oast house. To the front there is ample off-road parking for several vehicles and a three bay car port. The pretty front garden features flagstone patio and paths set amidst winter flowering heather, roses, conifers and specimen trees and bordered by box hedging and beach. 

The front door opens to an entrance hall enclosed in glass panelling, with doors to the cloakroom and amazing open plan full height vaulted lounge and dining areas. This characterful triple aspect reception space will bowl you over and is the heart of the home, featuring charming log burner, double height glazing and doors overlooking both front and rear gardens with beautiful sandstone flagstone flooring which continues throughout the hall, cloakroom and kitchen. 

The dual aspect fitted kitchen/breakfast room is complete with AGA Rayburn range cooker, a range of wall and base units with integral Miele dishwasher, Siemens cooker with induction hob and freestanding American style fridge freezer to remain.

The ground floor further comprises a snug/t.v room adjoining two double bedrooms, each with solid oak flooring. The bedrooms are served by a modern jack and jill en-suite shower room with underfloor heating.

An open tread wooden staircase rises from the principal reception room to the galleried landing areas. These form perfect spaces for study and gym areas from which to enjoy the view of the full height ceiling to the eaves and associated exposed timbers. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, each with vaulted ceilings. The master bedroom boasts a large fitted wardrobe space and is served by an en-suite comprising both a free standing bath and tap and wet room type shower. The other bedrooms are served by a family shower room with utility cupboard for washing machine and drier. Both bathrooms have underfloor heating. 

There is a large loft space for storage running from the galleried space through to the master suite, with access at both ends.

Internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the extremely well proportioned living space which benefits from double glazing throughout. This property has the wow factor expected with a turnkey ready barn conversion. Of particular note is the high quality contemporary finish to all three bathrooms and cloakroom with sleek Vola fixtures, Laufen sanitary ware and extensive use of travertine tiles, solid oak and brushed stainless steel fittings. The barn and outbuildings have only recently been treated externally and are generally well maintained. 

Outside

A particular feature of this home is the secluded grounds with the whole plot being approximately one acre, with vaulted three bay garage (one bay enclosed for secure storage) and a large garden shed. The owners also obtained planning permission (since lapsed) for a contemporary 45 sqm summer house. The rear enclosed garden is surrounded by mature hedgerow providing seclusion for most of the year. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with an array of beautiful shrubs, flowerbeds, herb garden, oak, beach, interesting specimen trees and a number of fruit trees. Immediately to the rear of the house is a large patio area ideal for alfresco dining, barbecues and entertaining in the summer months.

Location

The property is ideally situated on the edge of the popular village of Groombridge, overlooking the beautiful Kent/Sussex border countryside befitting of its AONB status, and yet close to all the services afforded by the village which offers a range of amenities including highly regarded primary school, a doctors surgery, two public houses, a convenience store, bakery, and tennis, cricket and lawn bowling clubs. The village is also known for Groombridge Place and Gardens, Harrisons Rocks (popular with climbers) and the Spa Valley Railway Steam and heritage service that runs mostly in the summer. Tunbridge Wells is approximately 5 miles distant offering a mix of state and grammar schools, comprehensive shopping facilities and mainline station with fast rail services to London.
