This fetching substantial manor house has 13th Century origins and is set in 37 acres of gardens and grounds. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful 9 bedroomed family home that is ‘ring fenced’ within its own extensive land in this highly sought after postcode within the Metropolitan Green Belt and on the borders of the North Kent Downs. There is also a Coach House with the property.
The main house has a handsome latterly added Georgian façade, and boasts extremely versatile spaces that have been reconfigured over the years for both formal and informal living, along with entertaining areas, with many original features retained. There are further options to reconfigure the current layout of the accommodation for those wanting to add their own interior design ideas.
Also included on the estate is a well organised equestrian facility. This includes a stable block of four loose boxes. You also have a heated swimming pool plus a jacuzzi and shower room. The gardens feature a glorious walled area, creating a wonderful backdrop to the house, with a fruit orchard, kitchen garden, greenhouse and raised vegetable beds plus a Polytunnel.
The kitchen has been totally re-furbished and has an assortment of units, a range cooker, tiled flooring and a large Rayburn set into the wall.
The Oak Hall is a stunning and substantial ‘standalone’ reception hall ideal for entertaining throughout the year, with French doors leading out to the extensive terrace area. The oak frame and cross beams are a beautiful feature as is the large brick fireplace with a Bresumer oak beam at one end and full oak flooring completing the ambience.
To the front there is a large area of grass for summer entertaining and making the most of the view of the fields. To the rear the glorious walled gardens are an ideal sheltered area. Landscaped with mature beds, shrubs and trees and with ornate central fountain, everything complements the overall surrounds and style of the ‘Manor House’.
