A charming and surprisingly substantial 16th century Dering-style character, four bedroom former bakery, featuring four reception rooms, two bathrooms and split level gardens with views across the Weald of Kent.

The house forms part of what was originally one Wealden Hall House which was subsequently split into a village store and bakery. The extensive accommodation is arranged over three floors and comprises an entrance reception hall, dining room, drawing room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom, snug and former lower level bakery cellar with original baking ovens. To the first floor, there is a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, shower room, second bedroom, bathroom and two further bedrooms. Outside, there is an attractive split garden/terrace area with small barn and views across the Weald.

The property is situated in the centre of the village of Pluckley, an historic rural village situated in a most beautiful part of the Kent countryside famous for its orchards and farmland and, in particular, being the setting chosen for the television series, “The Darling Buds of May”. The village enjoys three historic pubs, Church, Post Office & General Stores, butcher's shop and a well-respected primary school. The area is rich in natural beauty with an abundance of public footpaths and horse riding routes, providing an amazing playground for the outdoor enthusiast. Transport links are well served with excellent road networks leading to the A20 and M20 at junction 9, each some 6 miles distant, providing access to London and the Kent coast. Pluckley's main line railway station is approximately one mile distant providing fast access to Charing Cross, London Bridge, Canon Street and Ashford International stations. Ashford International benefits from the High Speed train service to London St Pancras with a journey time of 37 minutes along with travel to the continent via the Channel Tunnel. Properties of this character and position rarely come onto the open market and we strongly urge interested applicants to make immediate arrangements to view to fully appreciate the charm and character on offer.
