Formerly the kitchen wing of the Grade II-listed stately home of the Marquis of Camden, this stunning four-bedroom property occupies a most desirable setting on the Bayham Abbey Estate, set within spectacular landscaped grounds. The property has been significantly updated in recent years to a high standard of presentation, and offers a flexible layout ideally suited to families or those looking to downsize to a home in the country. Inside there are many period features, including high ceilings, beams, characterful fireplaces and wooden shuttered windows.
The accommodation is arranged predominantly on one level, with a spacious entrance hall leading through to a spectacular reception room with a 15ft ceiling and large windows affording excellent natural light. The room also features a vast wood open fireplace and a mezzanine floor overlooking the room, which is currently used as a study. Adjacent is a very spacious kitchen/breakfast room that’s perfect for entertaining, with large central island and a good range of wall and floor units. Appliances include a range cooker, dishwasher and oven, with space for washing machines in a separate utility room.
A family bathroom is shared by the four bedrooms, which are situated on the east side of the house and include a master bedroom with sauna/wc, two good-size double bedrooms and a very spacious room with wood floor and fireplace that is currently used as a music room. On the first floor there is an extensive converted loft space with eaves storage and good potential as a play room/study.
The impressive Bayham Abbey Estate is set within the countryside of the scenic Kent/Sussex borders, and is the former stately home of the Marquis of Camden dating from circa 1870 and now converted into a number of fine houses. The property is within 3 miles of Frant mainline station offering commuter services to Charing Cross via London Bridge/Waterloo East and Cannon Street. There is easy access to Tunbridge Wells (about 6 miles) via the improved A21, which has excellent high street shopping, superstores, cafes, restaurants and extensive leisure amenities. Local schools include Lamberhurst primary, Frant, Holmewood House and grammar schools in Tunbridge Wells.
The property is approached via a spectacular long private gated driveway which winds through beautiful parkland to a gravel roundabout drive where there is ample shared parking. There is a garage in a rear courtyard block and a separate, large, private garden to the rear, stocked with a variety of mature trees and offering excellent potential for further landscaping.
