About this property

  • Coming to the market for the first time in 30 years, Bachelors Farm is a delightful Grade II listed property, believed to date in part, from the 17th Century with later additions. The property is situated off a rural country lane just over half a mile from High Halden and benefits from well established east and south-facing gardens, paddocks which adjoin open farmland and rural views. There is garaging, various useful outbuildings and on the opposite side of the lane a further paddock.

    This delightful home which now offers the opportunity for some updating currently comprises three reception rooms; a dining room with exposed beams, wood panelling and open fireplace, a drawing room with lovely garden views and an adjoining sitting room with wood-burning stove.
    Double doors lead from the drawing room to the garden room, which enjoys south and easterly aspects and features a mature black grapevine.
    The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of pine fronted wall and floor cupboards. Appliances include a two oven oil fired Aga, a 4 ring LPG hob and an integral dishwasher.
    There is a utility room with space for various white goods and an excellent north-facing pantry with separate larder. Steps lead from the rear hall down to the wine cellar.
    On the first floor are four bedrooms served by two shower rooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom. There is a versatile dressing room/study. A dividing wooden staircase leads to the attic floor where there are two further rooms, one of which could be used as a dressing room and a shower room.

    Bachelors Farm enjoys attractive, well established gardens which lie predominantly to the rear of the house. Level lawns are under planted with spring bulbs and interspersed with planted borders and clipped evergreen hedging, the pond is surrounded by various mature trees including silver birch and weeping willow. Adjoining the gardens are two fields with mixed hedging and fencing to the perimeter.
    Outbuildings include a substantial former chicken house measuring 9.95m x 7.35m (32'7” x 24'1”) offering huge potential for a home office or recreation room, subject to any necessary planning requirements, a studio/workshop, garaging for three cars, a mower store and a hexagonal summerhouse. In addition there is parking for several cars.
    Immediately opposite Bachelors Farm on the west of the lane is a further paddock which is currently overgrown.
