An extremely rare opportunity to acquire an unlisted compact country house of character with a detached barn conversion and a variety of outbuildings, set in 13 acres of some of the most beautiful Kent countryside.

Hawk's Nest is believed to have 16th century origins and benefits from accommodation arranged over two floors including an entrance hall, country kitchen/dining room with wood burning stove, utility room, workshop, sitting room with feature fireplace, two bedrooms, bathroom and separate w.c.

The house enjoys a covered walkway access to the nearby barn which was converted to two storey, two bedroom accommodation providing for a variety of uses including a home office. The barn accommodation includes a kitchen/breakfast room, shower room, large sitting/dining room and two first floor bedrooms.

The ultimate beauty of this property can be found in its location and sweeping grounds. The total freehold site covers 13.139 acres including formal gardens, a rolling meadow, paddocks, stable yard with five stables, tractor shed and a private driveway providing extensive off road parking.

The property is situated in a small country lane in the extremely sought after rural hamlet of Stalisfield, a well-respected, close-knit rural community with its own church and well-known free house, popular for its annual beer festival.

Hawk's Nest has a wonderful outlook across its own rolling land nestling at the top of the North Downs, an area well suited to the equestrian/outdoor enthusiast, lying just 1.5 miles north of the semi-rural village of Charing. The village enjoys an interesting mix of village shops, pubs, restaurants, churches, health club, primary school and doctor's surgery. Transport links are well supported with a main line railway station in the village, providing access to London Victoria and Ashford International stations, whilst junction 9 of the M20 motorway is some 5 miles distant and junction 8, some 8 miles distant. The village is also just 5 miles west of the market town of Ashford, with its excellent shopping and leisure facilities, choice of schools and Ashford International station which benefits from the High Speed train service to London, reducing the journey time to 37 minutes.

Character properties situated in such a beautiful location as this rarely appear on the open market and we strongly urge any interested applicants to make arrangements to view to avoid disappointment.
