This prestigious residence stands proudly beyond wrought iron double gates within grounds of approximately one acre. Affording over 5,000 square feet of living accommodation this elegant family home offers a fine blend of period charm and contemporary excellence.
The property itself has origins dating back to 1750 and is now predominantly Victorian in its styling having been remodelled and extended in 1877. Appointed over four floors the property boasts six/seven double bedrooms, (one currently utilised as a dressing room) with luxurious en-suite and family bathrooms, four reception rooms and a wine cellar, office and gym housed within the basement. More recently the current owners have considerately remodelled the home to exacting standards, blending original period features with desirable contemporary enhancements.
Externally, the property sits within a very generous plot of terraces, lawns and a fenced paddock. The property also benefits from a superb summer house, (with kitchen) that has been designed in a fashion that can easily be adapted for use as a home office, a studio or indeed an annexe, subject to relevant planning permission. The double garage block also has been constructed in a manner that would allow similar adaptations to be made.
Conveniently located within a short drive of the favoured and award winning market town of West Malling, which is renowned for its exceptional character and a wide ranging eclectic mix of boutique shops, coffee houses, pubs and fine restaurants.
For those wishing to commute to London or the Continent it should be noted that this area is superbly blessed with transport links.
