Delightful listed farmhouse, 18th Century barn, annexe, garaging and planning for contemporary home
Occupying a peaceful rural setting amidst open countryside, Thorford Hall Farm is a delightful former farmstead comprising a 4 bedroom Grade II listed farmhouse, a detached coach house annexe which has been utilised as a holiday let, an impressive 18th century listed barn and an extensive oak framed garage.
The current owners have sympathetically refurbished the main house and planning permission (now lapsed), was granted to convert the period barn and link it to the house. In addition, planning permission has also been granted for a two storey contemporary passive house of some 4,000 sq ft.
Thorford Hall Farm is set off a private shared drive, about 1.5 miles to the south west of the thriving village of Staplehurst with its good range of shops, amenities and mainline station with fast and frequent services to London.
This charming property retains many period features and enjoys beautifully presented family accommodation arranged over three floors. Points of note include;
A wealth of exposed beams, Fired Earth floor tiles to the hall, kitchen/dining room and boot room, engineered oak flooring to the sitting room, wood burning stoves to the drawing and dining rooms.
Reception rooms comprise drawing, dining and sitting rooms, the latter enjoying views and direct access to the south facing terrace and garden via French doors.
The attractive kitchen features a range of custom-made cupboards and a fully fitted walk in larder. There are various integral appliances and space for a range cooker.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a boot room equipped with further cupboards.
On the first floor are three bedrooms, served by a shower room. An attic bedroom and a bathroom with eaves access are located on the second floor.
Thorford Hall Farm is approached via double timber gates. There is a substantial gravel parking area to the front of the house and the drive continues to the side where there is further parking and access to an impressive oak five bay garage.
The level lawned gardens extend mainly south wards with post and rail fencing dividing the gardens and pasture.
