A stunning four bedroom detached weather boarded early Victorian house dating back to what is believed to be the 1840's, backing on to farmland and located in the popular hamlet of Platts Heath.

Newbury House has been owned for the last ten years by the current vendor and in that time they have renovated the property and gone to great lengths to create an inviting and stylish home, yet retaining the character and charm of properties from this period.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors to include entrance hall, cloakroom, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, cellar, four bedrooms and a luxury fitted L-shape bathroom to the first floor with freestanding roll top bath and larger than average walk in shower. The property has some lovely designer touches such as Italian 'Bisque' radiators in some rooms, solid oak flooring and in the sitting room there is a superb 'Contura' rotating wood burner which can be angled to suit the seating position.

Outside there is off road parking for two vehicles via a gated shingle driveway, a private courtyard area that leads to an approximately 100ft rear garden that backs on to fields and is arranged into different attractive areas.

Platts Heath is a pretty hamlet with its own popular primary school located just 1.6 miles from the popular village of Lenham. An historic market village situated some 9 miles east of the county town of Maidstone. The village enjoys an interesting mix of local shops, restaurants, pubs, church, doctor's surgery and benefits from a monthly Country Market held in The Square. Public transport is well catered for with a main line railway station in the village providing access to London Victoria and Ashford International station which benefits from the High Speed 37 minute service to London St Pancras, whilst excellent road links to London and the Kent coast are accessible at junction 8 of the M20, some 5 miles distant.
