A charming and well maintained Grade II listed 15th century detached farmhouse with later additions, occupying a plot of 0.46 of an acre with views across adjacent farm land, situated on the fringes of the historic village of Charing.

Brook Farmhouse is believed to date from the late 1400s and features a heavily timbered interior with slate and oak floors, inglenook fireplaces and sizeable accommodation arranged over three floors. The property has been much improved by the present owners to include an oak kitchen/breakfast room with butler sink, granite worktops, range cooker and underfloor heating, utility/boot room, contemporary first floor bathroom/wet room, en-suite to the master bedroom and a contemporary bathroom and bedroom on the second floor, creating an eclectic mix of original character and modern day conveniences.

The extensive accommodation comprises an entrance hall, downstairs cloakroom, kitchen/breakfast room, utility/boot room, sitting room with inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, dining room with wood burning stove, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms, a family bathroom/wet room and additional bedroom and second bathroom on the second floor.

The well tended, landscaped gardens extend to a total of 0.46 of an acre and benefit from a large driveway and large double bay (one with doors) cart shed plus an additional single garage, providing off road parking for several vehicles.

The property is situated just one third of a mile from the historic semi rural village of Charing. The village sits between the foot of the North Downs with the Pilgrim's Way and the Green Sand Ridge, a rural area rich in farming, some 5.5 miles west of the larger market town of Ashford and 13 miles east of Maidstone. Charing enjoys an interesting mix of village shops, pubs, restaurants, church, 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 station with its High Speed 37 minute service to London St Pancras. Junction 9 of the M20 motorway is some 5 miles distant and junction 8, some 8 miles distant, both providing direct access to London and the Kent coast.

Character properties of this style never appear on the market for long and we strongly recommend booking to view to avoid disappointment.
