    About this property

    • In a prominent position and nestled within the captivating landscape, 4 Kennel Cottages spans over three floors with unobstructed views of sprawling fields, courtesy of the long-standing Haines Hill Estate that has a lineage tracing back to the era of Charles I.

      The estate relinquished ownership of the original cottage in 2012 and current owners built the new house in 2014, thus creating a modern family home featuring LED lighting, underfloor heating on the ground and lower ground floors via an air source heat pump, as well as equipping the house with CAT6 and audio cabling, catering for modern lifestyle needs.

      The front door, opens into a spacious entrance hall that leads to the “L” shaped kitchen, dining/family room. The kitchen overlooks the front of the house and is fitted with a range of wall and base units and is open to the breakfast/family room. At the rear of the house, there are bi-fold doors and French doors, allowing a huge amount of natural light and enjoyment of views over the garden and fields beyond. Completing the ground floor there is a boot room with a side door, a cloakroom and stairs to the lower ground and first floors off the entrance hall.

      The lower ground floor is adorned with high ceilings and ample natural light via a lightwell. There are two reception rooms, currently used as a spacious cinema/sitting room and a studio/home office, that could easily be used as bedroom four, with plumbing and services for an en suite installed. There is also a utility area with plumbing for a washing machine and dryer.

      On the first floor the principal bedroom and en suite wet room enjoy views over the rear garden and the fields beyond. There are two further bedrooms with views over the front and a large family bathroom.

      Outside, the cottage is positioned in a league of its own, captivating unobstructed vistas of sprawling fields, courtesy of its positioning within the historic Haines Hill Estate. In total the house nestles in c.0.23 of an acre, coupled with an additional c.0.12 acres of orchard that is leased from the estate and could be made available to lease to new owners by separate negotiation.

      The property sits behind a mature and well maintained hedge, with a gravel driveway to one side that provides ample parking for several vehicles. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and enjoys panoramic views over the open fields beyond. Two substantial sheds provide garden storage. Across the rear of the house, there is a large patio providing space for alfresco dining, entertaining and taking in the breathtaking soundings.

    I just love the open countryside surrounding this beautiful home. Built just under 10 years ago, it has a turn key feel and ready for new owners.
