A charming and surprisingly substantial mid 16th century Dering style four bedroom detached character home improved to a high standard, featuring three reception rooms, three bathrooms, ample off road parking and detached double garage, situated in the sought after rural village of Pluckley.

Tollgate House is believed to date from the mid 16th century built in the popular local Dering style of attractive brick facings under a Kent peg tiled roof. The property has been lovingly improved throughout by the present owner to provide a stylish living space whilst retaining much of the original character including exposed timbers and feature fireplaces with wood burning stoves to both sitting room and dining room. Additional contemporary touches include a Shaker style kitchen with separate utility room and ground floor shower room.

The extensive accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, breakfast room, kitchen, utility room, shower room, master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and en-suite bathroom, second bedroom with en-suite bathroom and two further bedrooms. Outside, a private driveway provides off road parking for numerous vehicles and leads to a detached double garage with shed storage to the side. There is a small garden area to the rear of the house with a rear paved patio area.

The property is situated just outside 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, with local arts & crafts shops available at nearby Pivington Mill. 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.
