Description

Description A stunning, new, barn conversation in an idyllic location with breath-taking views across farmland to the Greensand Ridge at Sutton Valance. The unlisted barn, originally part of Leighbridge Farm, has recently been converted to a very high standard maintaining all its original character whilst internally incorporating modern fixtures and fittings. One of the features of The Barn is the outstanding herringbone brickwork which has been retained on external walls. All the windows have been replaced with bespoke double glazed windows which sympathetically mimic the original windows. The Barn is situated over two floors, a feature of which is the lovely open drawing room incorporating a bespoke oak staircase and galleried landing, along with the large eat-in kitchen overlooking the garden. The Barn benefits from underfloor heating throughout on the ground floor, and radiators on the second floor. The property is attached to Leighbridge Dairy (converted at the same time) and although both properties enjoy their own private driveways and entrances, they do share a large pond with property boundaries running down the centre of the pond.

The property is situated in a rural, but not isolated, location between the two villages of Headcorn and Staplehurst. Headcorn lies approximately two miles to the South East of the Barn, with its excellent range of local shopping facilities, coffee shops, restaurants and primary school; and Staplehurst lies approximately three miles to the South West of the property. Both villages offer regular bus services linking the villages to the neighbouring larger towns, and both villages have direct mainline rail services serving London (London Bridge, Waterloo and Charing Cross), Ashford International (with links to Eurostar and fast trains to London St. Pancras) and the coast. There is an excellent selection of both primary and secondary schools nearby, both state and private, and the property falls with the catchment areas for the secondary grammar schools in Maidstone.
