About this property

  • An impressive contemporary home set in this small and secure, ‘farmstead development' of just three houses. Based on the theme of a farmhouse with its neighbouring oast and barn, all of the homes in this exclusive development are substantial and the delightful setting is semi-rural in character being nestled at the end of a long estate drive, set far back from the Frant to Wadhurst road.

    The property has an outlook over woodland to the front and fields to the rear and is finished in a minimalist contemporary style, with the emphasis on large rooms and the wonderful southerly aspect. Oak joinery is one of the features, along with plenty of glazing and a modern design for the kitchen and bathrooms. The huge kitchen/dining/family room is of particular note, with stone flooring, AEG appliances, a generous larder cupboard and a central island unit with a breakfast bar. This is one of the two key reception rooms, both of which enjoy a focus to the southerly side, with twin double sliding doors directly onto the garden terrace. The four bedrooms on the first floor also have an attractive southerly outlook.

i really like the farm style setting, well away from the road, one of just three homes and all up-to-date, with generous rooms, including a huge kitchen.
