Description A stunning grade II listed thatched house with spacious accommodation, abounding in charm and character with a wealth of period features including an inglenook fireplace and exposed timbers throughout. The superb grounds extend to about 5.5 acres in total including paddocks with separate access and beautiful formal gardens. * no onward chain *
We understand the property was built around 1690 although we understand it has origins dating back as far as the 14th century. There are some delightful architectural features including some well preserved timber mullion windows, a wealth of exposed timbers and much more. The accommodation has been added to over the centuries and this is particularly evident in the entrance hall where the original external wall can be seen indicating this was once a courtyard, now with a restored brick floor. The main reception rooms are generous with an inglenook in the sitting room. Also downstairs there is a study, shower room, kitchen/breakfast room, lobby/boot room and a utility room. The 4 bedrooms and bathroom are arranged over the split-level first floor on three levels with separate staircases. The property has been well maintained with a recent new thatch to the rear roof carried out by a Master Thatcher to a high standard including a full waterproof membrane.
Outside, there is a substantial garage/workshop complex off the main entrance plus a charming detached 'oast house'. The beautifully kept formal gardens are a joy, offering many delightful 'outside rooms' to entertain and eat alfresco whilst enjoying the views over your own extensive grounds. In all these extend to about 5.5 acres including paddocks, stabling and a secondary drive with extensive further parking. The property has oil fired heating and private drainage.
The property is located in the civil parish of Meopham, and sits between the villages of Harvel and Vigo with local shops, and amenities. Nearby Borough Green and Meopham offer further local shops and facilities, whilst Sevenoaks, Maidstone and Bluewater (with their extensive amenities) are within an easy drive. The area is well served with primary schools and there is a variety of secondary provision available. There are delightful country walks on the doorstep and the area is known for its horse-riding. Borough Green & Wrotham station is about 3 miles to the south, with Meopham Station about 3.5 miles to the north. There are good road links to the A2, A20, M20, M26 and in turn to the M25 providing access to London, the Coast and Ebbsfleet International.
