A stunning and impressively refurbished Wealden hall house with barn surrounded by gardens and fields of over 24 acres.
Chart Hall Farm is an outstanding Grade II listed house dating in part from 1397, with superb listed timber framed barn, garaging, an outdoor pool, former stables and Atcost barn, all nestling within gardens and grounds of over 24 acres.
The house itself was the subject of extensive research during the 1990's by the Royal Commission on The Historical Monuments of England who where able to confirm via dendrochronological dating that the property was, at that time, the oldest Wealden Hall House in Kent.
The current owners have sympathetically refurbished and extended this interesting home, a beautiful addition of which is the striking oak framed extension by The Traditional Building Services. Throughout, there are a wealth of exposed beams, timbers, several crown posts, and the accommodation is beautifully presented over three floors.
Well proportioned reception rooms include an elegant triple aspect drawing room featuring an inglenook fireplace, bespoke shelving and cupboards, an adjoining sitting room also with inglenook and a charming 'snug'/family room off the kitchen.
The superb vaulted kitchen/breakfast/dining room by Plain English, features engineered oak flooring and is equipped with an extensive range of hand painted cupboards complimented by Bianco Eclipsia worktops together with a large freestanding table with deep drawers and pipee oak top. Appliances include an Everhot with three ovens, warming drawer and induction hob and there are various integral Miele appliances. The adjoining utility room is also by Plain English.
Over the first and second floors are five double bedrooms, four of which benefit from a variety of built-in or fitted cupboards with the principal bedroom having a dressing area. Two bathrooms serving these bedrooms are fitted with Fired Earth sanitary ware. Also off the second floor landing there is access to a store room.
Chart Hall Farm is approached via a long drive with fields to either side, leading to a parking area to the front of the house and the barn and garaging. Mature, well established gardens and grounds screen the house with paved terraces, a small knot garden, rose and wisteria walk, herbaceous borders, varieties of fruit trees, together with a heated swimming pool.
A beautiful detached Grade II listed 18th century oak framed barn with hipped tiled roof is currently divided into storage areas and there is adjoining garaging. Planning permission has lapsed (ref no MA98/1667) for conversion to a three bedroom residential dwelling.
