A superb opportunity to acquire a five bedroom detached country home sitting in a plot of 2.34 acres between the villages of Smarden and Pluckley, with wonderful gardens and a 139'7” barn.

This home has been owned by the present vendors since 1983 in that time they have substantially changed and improved the property, extending the rooflines either end over former flat roof areas and landscaping the gardens to create what is a welcoming family home with flexible accommodation.

The property is arranged over two floors with accommodation to include porch, entrance hall, oak kitchen/dining room, utility room, four bedrooms to the ground floor, family room, sitting room, study areas, ground floor bathroom. To the first floor there is a master bedroom suite with dormer window with views across the countryside and an en-suite bathroom.

There are landscaped gardens to the front and rear of the property and notably a 139' 7” x 26' 11” barn which was formerly a chicken house which could potentially have a wide range of uses.

The property sits on the Pluckley Road between the villages of Smarden and Pluckley, 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.
