In a delightful semi rural setting, a charming, detached Grade II Listed former Hall House, the original part of which is understood to date from the 16th Century. Extended and improved in recent years the house is well presented throughout whilst retaining many fine period features, which combine with modern attributes and include attractive oak thumb latch doors, wall
and ceiling timbers and exposed beams, polished wooden flooring, fireplaces and wooden framed, double glazed windows. The elegant drawing room has an impressive fireplace with a Jotul wood burning stove, polished wood flooring. The delightful sitting room has a further wood burning stove and an outlook over the garden, opening into the kitchen and breakfast/dining room. The kitchen is well fitted with granite worktops, an excellent range of cupboards and drawers, an integrated dishwasher, Falcon dual fuel range cooker and quarry tiled flooring. Adjacent
is a utility room with plumbing space for appliances, further range of cupboards, a sink and a door to outside. The breakfast/ dining room has underfloor heating, doors out to the extensive
terrace and glorious views over the gardens, paddock and open countryside to the east. To the first floor a spacious ‘L’ shaped landing leads to the bedrooms. The principal bedroom and guest
bedroom both have vaulted ceilings and an excellent range of fitted wardrobes with the principal bedroom enjoying a well fitted en suite bathroom. The remaining three bedrooms all enjoy a rural outlook over the gardens and surrounds and are very well served by a family bathroom with a separate shower cubicle and bath.
The farmhouse is set in beautiful gardens adjoining fields on the edge of the hamlet of Chiddingstone Hoath, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the historic villages of Penshurst, Hever and Chiddingstone.
