Description A stunning, new, barn conversion in an idyllic rural location with breath-taking views from the garden across farmland to the Greensand Ridge at Sutton Valance. The unlisted dairy, originally part of Leighbridge Farm, was converted to a very high standard in 2017, and maintains all its original character whilst internally incorporating modern fixtures and fittings. All the windows have been replaced with bespoke double glazed windows which sympathetically mimic the original windows. The Dairy is mainly single-storey and benefits from underfloor heating throughout, with individual room thermostats, with the exception of the office/studio which has a radiator. The property is attached to Leighbridge Barn (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 Dairy, 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 within the catchment areas for the secondary grammar schools in Maidstone.

The driveway sweeps past the pond and leads right up to the front door and oak-framed, open double-bay garage (23'04" x 19'02", light and power, and loft access). The dairy has an expanse of garden to the front of the property (which includes half of a natural pond – the other half owned by the property next door). To the rear of the property is a gravelled courtyard area with a post and rail fence boundary.
Services The property is attached to Leighbridge Barn (converted at the same time) and shares oil storage facilities with the Barn along with a Klargester water treatment centre. Although the two properties share an oil tank, each property's usage is individually metered.
