About this property

  • A handsome detached family house commanding an elevated position with a southerly aspect and a lovely outlook to all sides over park-like grounds and farmland. Believed to date back to circa the 1920s, this former farmhouse retains many character features including oak joinery and interesting fireplaces and now offers potential for refurbishment.

    The property is conveniently located for schools and stations with a long driveway approach off the A21 providing easy access to Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks to the north and Hastings to the south.

    The wide formal entrance hall features a brick fireplace and an oak balustrade staircase rising up to a mezzanine landing with a striking stained glass window above. The reception rooms are accessed through double doors and comprise a sitting room with a deep fireplace recess with gothic windows either side opening out to the garden and a dining room linking through to a study. The domestic area lies to the rear, with a kitchen and a traditional walk-in pantry on the north wall and a utility/laundry area.

    The principal en suite bedroom on the first floor enjoys a view over fields towards Goudhurst to the north west; five further bedrooms are arranged over the first and second floors.

    Outside
    A notable feature is the lovingly created garden which is a haven for wildlife and wraps around the house, providing a wonderful outlook from the majority of rooms.

    The garden is full of interest with several magnificent specimen trees including a copper beech, lime trees, silver birch and oaks and deep herbaceous and shrub borders flank the house with climbing roses, lavender, peonies and honeysuckle.

    Several sheltered terraces provide delightful corners for entertaining with seating areas placed for enjoyment of the sun at different times of the day and, for those seeking to sustain themselves, a large kitchen garden and an orchard with several varieties of top fruit provide ample opportunity.
