Beautifully presented attached Grade II listed barn conversion in a wonderful country lane setting.
Park Farm Barn East is an appealing attached Grade II listed barn conversion with brick and weatherboarded elevations and pitched clay tiled roof. It is situated in an unrivalled rural location within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Cranbrook School catchment area (2023). The barn is believed to date from the 18th century or earlier and has been most sympathetically converted between 2016 and 2017.
The property is situated deep within the Kentish countryside, where the embryonic village of Horsmonden began with the 14th century Church of St Margaret's closeby and it enjoys breathtaking views towards Goudhurst village and St Mary's Church.
It features a beautifully proportioned open plan reception space, four bedrooms, a bathroom and two shower rooms, exposed timbers and beams throughout, vaulted first floor ceilings, galleried landing and a blend of stylish contemporary fittings to the kitchen and bath/shower rooms and original features. There is engineered oak flooring throughout the ground floor and contemporary sisal carpet upstairs, oil fired central heating; underfloor heating in part and period-style radiators to the balance, sealed unit double glazed windows and doors. The property has a private driveway, enclosed cart barn garaging and just over 0.25 of an acre of garden.
Ground floor accommodation includes quality oak joinery which complements the original wooden beams and a wonderful zoned open plan sitting room and dining room. The sitting room area features a Norpeis woodburning stove with brick surround and bespoke fitted bookcases. There is a versatile guest bedroom four with bespoke fitted wardrobes by The Heritage Wardrobe Co and its own shower room.
Exposed brick steps lead to the vaulted dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room from Mayfield Kitchen Studio which features exposed ceiling beams and boasts a contemporary range of cupboards, a central island, granite worktops and a walk-in larder with shelving. It is fitted with integrated Siemens appliances. A separate utility room/boot room offers additional storage facilities and access to the garden. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
An oak staircase bisects the open plan living area and leads to the first floor galleried landing with a stunning vaulted ceiling, bespoke Heritage Wardrobe Co storage and three further bedrooms.
The principal bedroom suite has a full height vaulted ceiling and enjoys an easterly aspect, affording far reaching fine views towards the historic village of Goudhurst and St Mary's Church. There is an en suite shower room incorporating modern fittings and exposed beams.
Along the hall there are two further beautiful, beamed bedrooms also featuring vaulted ceilings and a stylish family bathroom comprising a white suite with chrome fittings and an oak vanity shelf.
Outside, a gated drive sweeps around to the parking area where there is an attached two bay cart barn with a pitched tile roof, natural timbers and solid oak doors (doors and first floor designed and installed by Anthony Hicks Ltd), with a further smaller bay to the right for additional storage. A first floor has been installed with an inbuilt ladder staircase providing easy access to further storage above the garages. External power points and sensor lighting.
The level south-facing garden provides a delightful plot of just over 0.25 of an acre with areas of lawn, an original brick wall and two Indian stone terraces making it possible to enjoy the sunshine throughout the day. There are many established specimen trees and shrubs.
