Noah’s Ark Farm House is a beautiful Grade II Listed former Wealden Hall house, understood to date in part from the mid 15th century with later additions. It is set amidst delightfully maintained, well screened gardens which in turn border the Weald of Kent golf course to three sides. The house nestles in a rural position, close to the historic Kentish villages of Headcorn and Sutton Valence.
This fascinating home has been sympathetically maintained over the years and boasts very well presented rooms in excess of 3,000 sq ft arranged over three floors together with a useful cellar. There is an immaculately presented self-contained annexe above the triple garaging, completed in 2017 and will be ideal for a variety of uses.
Noah’s Ark points of note include: Diamond leaded light mullion windows with oak frames and deep sills, a wealth of exposed oak timbers and beams and an impressive crown post on the second floor bedroom and solid oak flooring in the kitchen and dining room. Of particular note are the high ceilings with beautifully moulded beams which feature in most of the rooms.
Reception rooms include an impressive triple aspect drawing room, situated in the oldest part of the house, with an inglenook fireplace and a formal dining room with the original wide oak front door leading out to the terrace and pool.
The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of shaker-style cupboards. Appliances include a two oven electric AGA and an electric double oven. There is space for various freestanding appliances and an adjoining boot room with further space. Situated off the entrance hall is a study, a utility room providing storage and space for additional white goods and a cloakroom.
A superb staircase leads up to the first and second floors where there are five bedrooms which are served by three luxuriously appointed bath/shower rooms (two being en suite). The principal bedroom suite has a dressing room and bath/shower room.
Noah’s Ark Farm House is approached via a long private lane. Electric double timber gates open to a shingle drive where there is ample parking and access to the triple garaging. There is a separate parking area and pedestrian access for the self-contained annexe.
The gardens provide a stunning backdrop to the house extending to about 1.8 acres. There is an array of specimen trees, fruit trees and deep herbaceous borders planted to provide year round colour and interest. The heated outdoor swimming pool is well sheltered by landscaped borders.
