Freehold
COUNTRY, EQUESTRIAN & LEISURE - Stunning Views - Set in a rural location with 6.8 acres (TBV*) and enjoying glorious elevated southerly views over the Weald of Kent is this exclusive detached 5/6 bedroom country & equestrian home with accompanying detached annexe and leisure facilities including a swimming pool, tennis court, stables and 20m 40m all-weather riding arena.
The desirable combination of having a substantial master residence (4000 sq ft) plus a detached 1 bedroom annexe will be of great appeal to those requiring extended family living with the added benefit of being able to move straight in as there is no forward chain. No expense has been spared by the vendors on re-modelling & extending the house over the years creating an elegant mix of character features with modern contemporary aspects presenting a perfect family home as well as offering wonderful entertaining areas. The property is perfect for those who enjoy 'outdoor living' offering an idyllic sanctuary away from the 'hustle & bustle' yet being in convenient distance to good road & rail commuting links.

The outstanding setting the property occupies also means you can marvel at the ever changing colours of each season thanks to the elevated viewpoint above the valley. The whole is approached off a lane through formal wrought iron gates onto a driveway leading to a spacious parking & turning area at the front of the house enjoying complete privacy. The surrounding attractive gardens enjoy many areas of interest including a wide south facing VIEW OVER THE WEALD OF KENT. For off road hacking there is lane access to several farm/toll rides and in hacking distance is Bonfleur Cross Country Course which is available to hire. The nearest Equestrian show centre is Duckhurst Farm at Staplehurst. VIDEO* TOUR available online. NO CHAIN.
