What the owners say......
We have lived here for 5 very happy and horsey years and found that this has been a perfect equestrian and family home for us. The property is far enough away from neighbouring houses to give us privacy and space, but it has been comforting to know that equine help is at hand if needed. We have been fortunate to have built good relationships with our neighbours, particularly our nearest and use their manège on a regular basis (by private arrangement). A new job in a different part of the country is forcing us to sell our much-loved home and it is with sadness that we leave. We know that the new owners will enjoy the setting and facilities that we have and will be very happy.
AREA AWARENESS & LOCATION
Built from a former stable block the property has all the modern conveniences expected but retains much of the original charm of traditional shiplap timber /brick elevations under a hand made clay tiled roof.
The property is located in a desirable commuting area within easy driving distance to two main rail links to central London, set within a working rural farm complex with other residential properties including the main farmhouse and a converted Oast house and associated barns.
The property is accessed off a B road via a private farm entrance with open pasture land surrounding the farm. Convenient road commuting can be gained to the A21 to the M25 and south to the coastal towns also via the A21.
The village primary school in Brenchley is highly recommended with an unlimited number of excellent upper private and state schools within easy driving distance.
Tunbridge Wells approximately 6.5 miles distant offers wide range of shopping, leisure and sporting facilities as well as a mainline station. Paddock Wood approximately 6.5 miles away offers a good range of local facilities and amenities including a Waitrose and mainline station with fast services to Cannon Street and Charing Cross.
