About this property

  • Occupying a lovely position, about 2 miles north of the sought after village of Goudhurst, Summerhill Farm is a delightful four bedroom property dating from around the 1700's with an Edwardian addition.

    This superbly presented unlisted home features light and airy accommodation exceeding 2,000 sq ft. The property has a great flow and is an ideal entertaining home with two reception rooms. A family room is part of the Edwardian addition, with high ceilings, sash windows and a log burner. A sitting room which is part of the original farmhouse has exposed beams, inglenook fireplace and French doors to the patio. To the rear of the property, there is a boot room with butler sink, excellent storage space and opens to both the kitchen and the larger front hall.

    There is a well proportioned and well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with underfloor heating extending to the conservatory, which also benefits from a wood burning stove. A utility room and separate WC complete the ground floor.

    On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, two with en suite bathroom/shower rooms and fitted wardrobes. The main bedroom benefits from a striking triple aspect with views over the gardens. Two further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with beautiful exposed beams. An airing cupboard is accessed on the landing with a separate landing area providing an ideal study or reading space overlooking the garden.

    The attractive rear garden is laid mainly to lawn with glorious views towards the north. There are various outbuildings including two greenhouses, a potting shed and lockable steel container. A wooden decked area with electricity supply has been constructed for an above ground swimming pool. Additionally, there is a wishing well and a field to the east of the house has been left fallow as a meadow.

    Adjacent to the house is a double garage/workshop with light and power. Above, accessed via a staircase to a balcony, is a versatile guest suite with living space and a shower room which could be utilised as an annexe, games room or home office.
