Property description

A beautifully presented detached Victorian country residence, nestled in a private plot of 0.7 acres, backing on to fields between the villages of Smarden and Pluckley.

This impressive home has been extended and transformed by the current vendors into an individual, relaxing and welcoming home with superb views across the neighbouring countryside. The property is in the style of its period being half tile hung with render under a pitched tiled roof. Care and attention to detail has been exercised to retain the character of the property, yet catering for modern needs, such notable examples being Heritage replacement double glazed sash windows, Victorian column radiators and underfloor heating to certain areas, oak doors and skirting throughout along with a water descaling system and modern private drainage.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors to include; entrance porch, entrance hall/study, snug, dining room, reading area, sitting room with bi-fold doors to garden, bespoke handmade kitchen with granite worktops, utility room and cloakroom. There are two bedroom areas with the master suite being accessed via a private staircase from the sitting room offering a private balcony overlooking the garden and a luxury ensuite shower room. An additional staircase accesses the remaining bedrooms from the kitchen area with two double bedrooms and a luxury bathroom with roll top bath to the first floor, and to the second floor there is an additional double bedroom offering splendid views of the Kent countryside.

Outside, the property is completely enclosed by a six foot closed-board fence and electric double gates offering privacy and security, leading to an extensive shingle driveway area, double bay oak cart lodge, wonderful landscaped garden and private flagstone patio courtyard.

The property is situated off a private driveway just off a country lane leading to the village of Smarden, an extremely sought after historic village with a close-knit and welcoming community, boasting its own Church, village hall, Post Office and stores, butchers shop, gallery and three well-respected pubs.

The village is situated close by the neighbouring villages of Pluckley and Headcorn, both with mainline railway stations to London Charing Cross and Ashford International, which benefits from the High Speed 37 minute service to London St Pancras.
