This wonderful detached barn conversion is sat proudly within its landscaped gardens occupying an idyllic rural position surrounded by rolling Kent farmland and open countryside.
Within easy reach of Tonbridge with its excellent train links to central London, first class schools, Waitrose and other local amenities, this home is perfect for families with professional needs.
Approached via a quiet country lane, a five-bar gate opens into a hard surface driveway with parking for up to four cars.
The house's impressive black façade contrasts beautifully with its lush green surroundings while the detached studio/annex sits neatly to the side. It is a fantastic addition with a garage/workshop on the ground level and living accommodation with a double height vaulted ceiling and exposed beams on the first floor. It is a very versatile space that can either be used for older children, visiting guests or alternatively can be easily reconfigured to afford you home working or business opportunities.
Returning to the main house, you enter through a glazed entrance door flanked by full height picture windows stretching across the front of the house.
The entrance hall delights in a charming country feel with tiled flooring and exposed beams welcoming you in.
First on the left is the kitchen/breakfast room. Bespoke wooden cabinetry housing fitted Bosch appliances blend beautifully with its original features. A dresser unit with lighting, a sink ideally placed underneath the window capturing garden views and a large lobby area providing additional storage space and a fitted bench, all add to the charm and character of the room.
Conveniently placed next door is the dining room, warm wooden beams framing the space for delightful dining experiences. A useful guest cloakroom sits next door.
To the rear of the hallway is the living room which stretches the width of the house and provides ample space for family and guests. A wood burning stove adds warmth in the colder months whilst triple aspect windows drench the room in sunlight.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor you reach the landing and the pretty bathroom. It is a tranquil space with a shower over the bath and a vanity unit with inset wash hand basin sitting under its Velux window.
Opposite is the master bedroom with its own en-suite bathroom. It has an impressive double height beamed and vaulted ceiling and double aspect windows offering beautiful views of the garden enabling you to lie in bed and watch the changing seasons in comfort.
At the front of the house are two further bedrooms, one a good sized double with open countryside views.
Outside the glorious garden lies predominantly to the rear of the house and is laid mainly to lawn with mature trees, shrubs and hedging providing a high degree of privacy and safely self-contained for pets and children. A circular paved terrace sits to the side of the kitchen giving plenty of space for alfresco dining while you enjoy the far-reaching Hadlow Estate farmland views. A pretty timber summer house is ideally placed to enjoy the late sun and has potential as an office, if electricity is put in.
This beautiful unique home is brimming with character from its period features and striking unspoilt country views. It is also well placed for commuters being only 2.5 miles from the local mainline station with excellent rail links to central London. A must see!
