Property description

I am struggling to find sufficient words to express how completely wonderful this special and unique barn conversion truly is. What a superb family space this home offers. 'The Barn' oozes character throughout, and is packed with period features and more than enough space for a large family to boot. Situated just outside the Saxon village of Challock, high on the North Downs, this home is ideally placed to enjoy the peaceful rural setting this delightful village offers. There are plenty of woodland walks nearby, and an excellent primary school which is very much part of the local community. The town of Ashford is a short drive away, should you need to pop to the shops or supermarket.
The barn is approached through a five-bar gate which leads into the circular driveway, lined with mature trees and offering plenty of privacy. There are huge areas of lawn; ideal for children or pets to enjoy.
On entering this property, you will immediately find yourself in awe of its majestic, light and airy entrance hall, with timber floor, original timber framework and floor-to-roof windows. 'Stunning' is an over-rated word, but well-deserved here. This hall is a room in itself, and a delightful place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and those views throughout the entire year. An attractive wooden staircase leads to the first floor, and there are doors leading to the kitchen and study. The study is to the right of the hall and that in turn joins the lounge.

The kitchen is the real heart of this home and measures an impressive 29ft in length, the full depth of the barn! A fabulous entertaining space, with more than enough room for dining table and chairs for family get-togethers and more informal entertaining. The traditional wooden cupboards are in-keeping with the warm and homely feel of this barn, and blend well with the wooden beams and timberwork. There is also a useful utility room just off the kitchen with doors out to the garden and a cloakroom/shower room; perfect for when the kids have been playing out, or returning after a walk in the woods with the dog.

Beyond the kitchen is the formal dining room which is spacious yet cosy. It's very easy to imagine the family Christmas dinner you could enjoy here… with a large tree sparkling in the corner of the room. Beyond the dining room is a further entrance hallway with large picture windows and a second open staircase to the first floor and a large gallery landing.
At the end of the house you will find the homely and charming sitting room with a beautiful Ragstone fireplace, a large wood-burning stove and many windows overlooking the gardens. An ideal room for the family to relax and 'snuggle up' in front of the roaring fire on a winter's night.

The first floor is just as impressive as the ground floor, with a fabulous master bedroom and en-suite shower room, plus a very handy walk-in wardrobe – bags of room for clothes, shoes and accessories here. One thing you are never short of in this home is space! The second bedroom also has its own en-suite, and there are four other double bedrooms and the family bathroom on the first floor. All the bedrooms enjoy lovely countryside and garden views which lift your mood instantly. Visitors will love having their own space to relax in when they come and stay.
The two open galleried landings are impressive, with delightful wooden framework and views over the grounds.

Outside this wonderful barn conversion, you will find extensive and open grounds offering scope for many uses. You will be spoilt for choice. The property itself sits in approximately 1.5 acres and has a wide range of mature trees and shrubs including a wonderful weeping willow tree, a row of ancient ash trees, cherry, silver larch, sequoia, copper and maple. These gardens are ideal for exploring children, with plenty of space to run around and have fun safely within the confines of the property.
A separate paddock of just over 5 acres is also included and would make an ideal area for horses or other animals for grazing. Perhaps you would like to start your own small holding… or keep free-range chickens? Whatever you decide, there is enough land to fulfil your countryside dreams. A large detached steel framed barn measuring 44'9 x 29'6 provides ample parking and storage space, plus there is an adjoining open store to the rear which measures 44'9 x 14'3 and is ideal for small animals, or indeed space for a hobby or interest.

Local facilities nearby include a village shop, pub and fantastic primary school. The market towns of Ashford and Faversham are within easy reach, as well as the cathedral city of Canterbury. Both the M20 and M2 motorways, as well as Ashford International railway station are within easy reach.
In summary, this is a very special and unique home which is above and beyond anything a family could want for, and one which we would highly recommend.
