About this property

  • Farm Cottage is a charming Grade II listed mid-17th century five bedroom family home. The property, originally two separate cottages, is ideally located on the edge of Hildenborough village. The light, spacious and versatile accommodation has been superbly refurbished and renovated by the present owners, subtly combining character features with modern embellishments. Salient features include a bespoke kitchen, modern bathroom suites, some wooden floors, exposed wall and ceiling timbers, thumb latch doors, inglenook fireplaces and under floor heating to some rooms. Of particular note is the detached barn, housing a spacious studio annexe and garage. The established gardens, which provide a delightful backdrop to the property, amount to about 0.5 of an acre.

    The impressive double aspect kitchen/dining/family room is a superb space, ideal for modern family living. The bespoke kitchen by Rencraft is fitted with a range of wall and base units with a granite island unit, breakfast bar, a butler sink and integrated appliances. An adjoining utility room provides further storage.

    The double aspect family room has lovely views over the garden and countryside beyond with access to the rear terrace.

    There is also a snug/TV room and a well-appointed cloakroom.

    Arranged over the first floor is the spacious principal suite, comprising a spacious bedroom, dressing room with built-in wardrobes and a stylish en suite shower room.

    There are four further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a modern shower room.

    The property is approached via a gravelled driveway, providing ample parking. An area of lawn is enclosed by established evergreen hedging and a path leads to the pitched entrance porch.

    The detached barn houses a superb one-bedroom annexe, which has WiFi connected, a garage and log store.

    To the rear is a generous terrace, which wraps around the property, providing an ideal area for al fresco entertaining. The attractive garden is predominantly laid to lawn, with established trees and shrubs providing privacy and year round interest, with countryside views beyond. There is also a home office with WiFi connected, shed and gated side access.

I adore this country home with views over surrounding fields, close access to the village and only 1.5 miles to the station, it's a perfect rural and commuter blend
