A beautiful and well-maintained timber framed country house, dating back to 1630, nestled in a 0.83 acre south-facing plot, located between the villages of Hollingbourne and Harrietsham on the North Downs.

This home was originally a pair of purpose built semi detached houses believed to be one of the few examples in the county for that period. It was subsequently converted into four cottages. Now it is one complete detached house, having had a sensitive restoration with the vendors taking much time and effort to preserve the history of the property, yet making it fit the needs of modern day life. In addition, full planning permission has been granted for a ground floor glass kitchen extension should a future owner wish to extend.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors, with flexible living spaces, unusual for a home of this period. To the ground floor there is an entrance hall, snug/sitting room, main living room, dining room, music room area, breakfast area, kitchen, study, ground floor wet room and rear porch.

To the first floor, you are presented with a spacious landing which is currently used as a library/office area. There is a master bedroom with four further bedrooms, a family bathroom, separate shower room and hobby room/study.

Outside, there is a driveway with off road parking leading to a detached double garage. The stunning landscaped rear garden includes a variety of shrubs, trees, vegetable plot and two ponds, making it a wonderful place to relax and unwind.


The property is located in a country lane between the villages of Hollingbourne and Harrietsham. Between them is a wide range of facilities such as post offices, shops, public houses, local restaurants, primary and secondary schooling, health centre and wonderful country walks.

Transport links are well catered for with main line railway stations in both villages providing access to London Victoria and Ashford International station for travel to the continent and high speed travel to London St Pancras. Road links are excellent with easy access along the A20 to junction 8 of the M20 motorway, some 3.9 miles distant, providing fast access to London and the Kent coast.
