About this property

SOLD BY HAMPTONS. Situated in a discreet position along a private road, in a wonderful, semi-rural setting with lovely south westerly views over rolling Kent countryside towards Goudhurst church, a fine country house of character with accommodation extending to 3093 square feet, set within beautiful gardens and grounds of approximately 2.85 acres (1.53 h).

Cranbrook School Catchment Area

Commanding far-reaching views over lovely, adjoining Kent countryside, an attractive, detached country house, which originally formed part of the Capel Manor Estate. Believed to have been designed and built in the 1960s yet period in architectural style, the house has charming exterior elevations of part tile hanging above rendered facades under a pitched, slate tiled roof with Victorian style, double glazed windows and French doors, which perfectly frame the views. The accommodation is flexibly arranged over two floors extending to 3093 square feet, with a sociable, elegantly flowing layout on the ground floor and five bedrooms on the first, supported by three bath/shower rooms. Maintained to a high standard by the present owners, who have created a marvellous family home in a secluded setting on a tucked away private road, all the primary rooms enjoy the rear, southerly views. Reception space is gracious and includes an atmospheric dining room and a drawing room that has a triple aspect and a stone fireplace with log burner. The kitchen/breakfast room is comprehensively furnished with a range of fitted wall and floor cabinetry, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances by Neff and is open to a lovely sitting room and a conservatory style additional seating area, which is the ideal space for enjoying the very pleasant outlook over the gardens and beyond. A third reception space could be utilised as a family, play or hobby room and has a separate staircase leading directly to the guest suite.
There are four bedrooms arranged over the main first floor landing, including a principal bedroom, which has a wonderful outlook over the gardens and beyond, particularly from the private roof terrace, as well as an en suite shower room and fitted wardrobes. The remaining three bedrooms again have lovely views and are serviced by a family bathroom.

Outside
The house is approached from the private road via a gated entrance and on to a wide driveway with ample parking for several vehicles. Access to the house is either through the side hall or from a pedestrian gate, which leads to the front door. The stunning gardens surround the house and have been skilfully and imaginatively planted, forming ‘stories’ to be told throughout the year. A wonderful array of mature trees, specimen shrubs and glorious herbaceous borders ensure that there is interest across all four seasons, to such an extent that the gardens have been displayed as part of the National Garden Scheme. There is a woodland garden as well as a productive kitchen garden. Terracing traverses the back of the house and beyond the gardens is a wonderful paddock with hedged boundaries.

Situation
In idyllic peaceful, rural surroundings, Church View is set between the popular villages of Horsmonden and Goudhurst, both of which have local village stores as well as hostelries, cafes and restaurants. Cranbrook is about seven miles and has a larger selection of stores, antique shops and cafes, whilst the popular Royal Spa town of Tunbridge Wells is about ten miles to the north. There are many highly regarded schools in the area at both primary and secondary levels, in the private and state sectors. The boarding grammar school of Cranbrook is highly sought after, as are the grammar schools in Tunbridge Wells, along with public schools such as Tonbridge, Sutton Valance and Sevenoaks, whilst popular prep schools include St Ronans, Dulwich and Marlborough House with primary schools in Goudhurst, Horsmonden and Cranbrook. The area is renowned for its beauty providing many locations for walking and horse riding, golf clubs include Chart Hills and Lamberhurst and sailing at Bewl Water.
