A rare opportunity to acquire a charming and stylish early 16th century Grade II listed four bedroom village house, formerly part of a larger Wealden Hall House, boasting important historical character and a wealth of exposed brickwork and original structural beams, situated in the heart of the sought after village of Charing.

Hope Haven is believed to have been built in the early 16th century and provides interesting and versatile accommodation arranged over three floors comprising an entrance porch, sitting room with feature fireplace and wood burning stove and an original Dais beam bearing the inscription dated 1616: “As God hath Lent us Earthly foode our bodies to preserve so Heavenly foode He will provide if we Him serve”, separate sitting/dining room with feature fireplace and wood burning stove, fitted kitchen with central island unit, ground floor bathroom with roll top bath, master bedroom with views over the rear garden and village Church beyond, en-suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms on the first floor and a second floor fourth bedroom with additional separate loft room.

The property enjoys secondary double glazing, gas fired central heating and a wealth of storage cupboards.

Outside, the private enclosed rear garden benefits from a well kept lawn with mature shrub and floral borders, raised vegetable beds, sun patio and pergola and a brick-built garden store.

The property is situated in the centre of the High Street in Charing village. Charing enjoys an interesting mix of village shops, pubs, restaurants, churches, private health and fitness club, primary school and doctor's surgery.

Transport links are well supported with Charing mainline railway station at the southerly end of 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.

Charing is also just 5 miles west of the large market town of Ashford with its excellent selection of leisure facilities, choice of schools and the International Rail station which benefits from the 37 minute high speed train service to London St Pancras.

Important historical buildings such as this rarely make an appearance on the open market and we strongly urge interested applicants to make arrangements to view to avoid disappointment.
