About this property

  • Forming part of the characterful converted stable complex within the grounds of this impressive country estate, Stable Cottage is a delightful single storey detached property with far reaching views to the rear over fields and woodland.

    The light-filled accommodation currently comprises a spacious sitting room, with wide sliding French doors opening out to the terrace for full enjoyment of the expansive views, a characterful interlinking dining area with high barrelled ceiling, a kitchen, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. In addition, there is a large adjoining garage and driveway parking space.

    Stable Cottage now offers an opportunity to update the accommodation to create a delightful country home, with the possibility of converting the garage to provide additional space, subject to any necessary planning consents. Interested parties would need to make their own enquiries in this respect.

    A paved terrace lies to the side and rear of the house, accessed from the sitting room and the principal bedroom providing private outdoor space for enjoyment of the lovely
    position.

    Stable Cottage is set within a group of characterful properties within the magnificent Bayham Abbey Estate. The spectacular mile-long private gated approach meanders through impressive park-like grounds and past the original Victorian mansion house (now divided into 'wings') which still dominates the landscape.

    The property is located about 2.9 miles from Frant mainline station offering a regular commuter service to London and about 6 miles from Tunbridge Wells with its high street shopping, supermarkets, theatres, cafes, restaurants and excellent leisure amenities.
