About this property

  • Coming to the market for the first time in over 50 years, Brick Kiln is a delightful Grade II listed property, formerly three cottages and believed to date, in part, from the late 16th century with later 18th and 19th century additions.

    Together with attached two storey Honeysuckle Cottage, they are situated along a country lane, yet only 0.3 of a mile from the sought after village of Benenden, enjoying wonderful southerly facing gardens and a paddock which adjoins open farmland to the east and west.

    This delightful property and associated cottage now offer the opportunity for updating.

    The main house with a wealth of exposed oak beams, features two reception rooms, including sitting and dining rooms, the former with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove and a study area which is open to the sitting room with door to the terrace and garden.

    The kitchen/breakfast room enjoys an outlook over the gardens, and has space for various freestanding appliances.

    Over the first and second floors are four very good sized bedrooms (one attic), the main bedroom with en suite bathroom and a further family bathroom. Most of the bedrooms benefit from fitted cupboards and have views over open farmland.

    Honeysuckle Cottage, can be accessed independently or via the dining room of Brick Kiln. The kitchen formerly a bake house, has a gas Rayburn and two larders. There is a sitting room with open fireplace, a utility room and WC. On the first floor are two bedrooms (one walk through) and a bathroom with coloured suite.

    Brick Kiln and Honeysuckle Cottage are approached via a tarmac drive providing off road parking and access to the garaging.

    The beautifully, well established gardens with mixed hedging and mature trees to the perimeter, extend mainly to the rear of the property with expansive lawns, brick paths, herbaceous borders, rose beds, fruit trees and a summerhouse enhanced in mature wisteria. The gardens continue to a further area with rhododendrons, magnolia and two greenhouses. A gate continues through to a gently sloping paddock with lovely old oak trees and flanked on either side by neighbouring farmland.

    Outbuildings include a log store, an open four bay barn and a useful workshop.
