On the market for the first time in over 30 years, Long Marling is an attractive substantial detached Victorian house with a varied and interesting history dating back to c.1860. Forming part of a small collection of individual properties and with beautiful mature gardens, the house is presented well throughout and points of note include:
• A superb 35ft triple aspect L-shaped drawing room which could easily become two separate rooms with French doors opening directly to the garden, a tall bay window and a feature stone fireplace.
• A well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with floor and wall mounted appliances under Corian work surfaces, a beautiful red Rayburn and an adjacent utility room with access to pantry, wine room and cloakroom via an inner hall and a boot room gives access to the garden. Double doors from the kitchen lead to an excellent family room with full width windows to the front of the house and door to a double aspect study/6th bedroom.
• A snug with fireplace opens to a fine conservatory looking out across the garden and on the opposite side of the long entrance hall is a well proportioned office with windows to both the front and side and ornate cast iron fireplace with timber surround.
• On the first floor, the double aspect principal bedroom has a tall bay window and lovely outlooks across the gardens and beyond as well as a bank of fitted wardrobes, a dressing room and en suite bathroom. There are four additional bedrooms, all with pleasant views, which are well served by a family bathroom.
Long Marling is one of a small collection of properties located on a private drive off a no-through country lane on the rural outskirts of Frant village. Frant is a popular Wealden village located to the south of Tunbridge Wells and offers a village shop with post office, hairdressers, picturesque green, primary school, church and two public houses. The spa town of Tunbridge Wells is about 3.5 miles away and offers a wide range of shops, restaurants, schools, hotels and supermarkets and the area is well served for educational facilities for boys and girls of all ages.
Wrapping around two sides of the house, the gardens predominantly face south and west and are superb with mature trees providing a wonderful backdrop. Extending to just over 1.5 acres, the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a wide and varied selection of established plants, shrubs and trees including numerous fruit bearers in a small orchard. There is a swimming pool and tennis court which are both screened from the house by mature trees and hedging and there is a detached double garage to one corner.
