What the owner says

“We bought the original property in 2003 because we loved the location, the quietness and the stunning views. It has been a delight to be able to replace the original property with this superb home, as well as growing the plot to the size we now enjoy. However, we now feel it is time for us to downsize and pass the baton on to another family.

Although we are wonderfully ensconced in the countryside, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is not far to the main road for access out and The George Inn is within easy walking distance. Alternatively, The Halfway House is just a short drive to Challock and we are only about five minutes' drive from Chilham with its charming 16th century black and white houses, pubs, shop and tea rooms surrounding the beautiful 15th century village square plus the gated access to Chilham Castle. The gardens and surrounding areas provide wonderful places to walk while the excellent Badgers Hill farm shop and café provides a wide variety of daily items and quality local produce.

You can drive to Ashford station in 20 mins for the fast train that will get you to St Pancras in 36 minutes, so you can be in London in less than an hour door to door. It is also not far to Canterbury with its ancient buildings, high street stores, independent shops, theatres, restaurants and pubs as well as excellent grammar schools, top class public schools and three universities."


Property details

Approached via impressive gates that open onto a long block paved driveway is this stunning triple gabled, oak framed residence. Positioned in perfect privacy, in the midst of 20.04 acres of delightful grounds and paddocks, it will take you a moment to assimilate the external aspects of this truly magnificent family home.

Inside the fabulous character features include exposed oak beams and porcelain tiled flooring as well as underfloor heating on the ground floor. The reception hall is truly breath taking and leads to the elegant dual aspect lounge with a beautiful stone fireplace and lovely views over the garden and the countryside beyond. On the other side of the hall, the dining room is ideal for formal entertaining or family gatherings. To the rear of the house, the vast kitchen/breakfast room is very light and bright. There is direct access back to the dining room as well as an adjacent utility room.. A large cloak cupboard and a downstairs cloakroom complete the ground floor.

At the top of the staircase the stairs divide and lead to an impressive galleried landing where the oak panelling continues. There are five double bedrooms that all have en-suite facilities including the attractive main suite with French doors to a balcony providing wonderful views across the countryside. Another of the bedrooms is currently laid out as an office and includes a very large balcony with a glass and steel balustrade where you can enjoy the panoramic view while a third also has a balcony overlooking the garden.

Step outside

Accessed from the block paved driveway and vast frontage, the oak framed, douglas clad double garage includes external steps up to a studio with a kitchenette including an oven and hob plus a shower room, so would make an ideal ‘hideaway' for older children or as an office or games room. There is also an enormous barn with three entrances for agricultural vehicles, horseboxes, caravans or motorhomes as well as a door access. Planning permission has also been granted for the building of an additional three bay garage and a covered porch for the house.

The formal gardens surrounding the house is ideal for outdoor entertaining and leads to the lovely heated swimming pool and the large lawns. There is a track that surrounds the extensive grounds and is ideal for walking the dogs and the paddock would be excellent for horses or other livestock, including a smaller paddock area where you could build stables.
