Property description

A quite wonderful home set within a generous and beautifully presented plot with far reaching views across the local valley and the River Medway.

The property itself has been comprehensively remodelled by the current owner to exacting standards and now offers very spacious family accommodation with five primary bedrooms, large reception areas, plus study, kitchen, utility room, a sun lounge and superb conservatory. In addition a lower ground floor room has been created as a family area that could easily be converted into a guest suite or small internal annexe.

The cottage enjoys an overall plot of approximately 1.6 acres that is approached via the private parkland driveway of the adjacent manor. Powered security gates open onto a block paved driveway that extends beyond the large garage block and terminates at a parking area and elegant turning circle. The property has been cleverly positioned to enjoy southerly views across the grounds with the river and valley beyond. The gardens have been beautifully designed with mature trees and well stocked borders. There are sumptuous lawns to all sides and a lower lawn area that was formerly a tennis court.

This area although rural is superbly accessible, with excellent road and rail links. The nearby railway line can be accessed at East Farleigh or Wateringbury which connect to mainline commuter routes at Paddock Wood or Maidstone. Alternatively, Barming station is found just 2.8 miles away. Equally convenient is the ease of access to the motorway network with the nearest junction being 3.7 miles away. For families that may require educational facilities there are several state schools that provide for primary and secondary age children. Additionally, Maidstone also offers four grammar schools. Private schools are also accessible - notably The Sutton Valence School and associated preparatory school are approximately 9 miles distant and Kings Rochester Cathedral School at 12 miles. Alternative private schools are available towards Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells.
