An elegant Grade II Listed detached family home believed to date back to the 15th century, set in beautifully landscaped grounds and paddocks of 2.17 acres, in a commanding position on the fringes of the much sought-after historic village of Pluckley.

Luckhurst House has been in the current vendor's tenure for the last 31 years and offers a wonderful opportunity to purchase this well-known local landmark which offers spacious family living with an abundance of character and charm, mature gardens, paddocks and stabling for those looking for an ideal small holding.

The property is approached via a five bar gate and private tarmac driveway leading to a generous parking/turning area. The grounds surround the house to all sides and have been impeccably maintained and cared for by the current owner. A garden pond surrounded by a wide variety of flowers, shrubs and trees offers a wonderful private place to relax and unwind with views to the rear across the paddocks and countryside. There is an established vegetable patch and greenhouse for those wanting to be self sufficient, two paddocks ideal for sheep, ponies or a horse along with four stables and additional outbuildings.

The property has front and rear halls, but the favoured entrance is to the rear entering into a vaulted ceiling area with wonderful exposed brick flooring. There is a cloakroom and water closet and separate utility room. The kitchen/breakfast room also enjoys the 14'3” (4.34m) vaulted ceiling with an abundance of exposed beams and timbers with an open staircase leading to the first floor. The double aspect drawing room benefits from a wonderful inglenook fireplace and woodburning stove with beautiful carved beams in the ceiling. The dining room mirrors this but with an open inglenook fireplace. This room opens to the wonderful bespoke conservatory by Glass Houses.

To the first floor, the imposing master bedroom is fitting of a property of this providence with exposed wide-board flooring and double aspect windows. There is a 'Jack and Jill' walk in closet that can be accessed from bedroom two. There are two bathrooms to the first floor with an additional stair case that is accessed from the drawing room. In addition, a staircase and exposed brick chimney breast leads to the second floor with two further double bedrooms.

We strongly advise any interested parties to make immediate arrangements to view.
