An extensively renovated and upgraded beautiful five bedroom detached character family home with three en-suites and countryside views. Dating from the late 18th century occupying a plot of 1.52 acres situated north of the much sought after Kent village of Pluckley.

Nettlepole's origins are believed to date from around 1780 with later additions added in Victorian and then Edwardian times. Principal construction is of ragstone and brick under a tiled roof with handsome chimney stacks sitting aloft. The current vendors have spent the last six years renovating the property having purchased it in a state of much needed repair. The transformation is magnificent and from viewing you can appreciate the attention to detail and care that has been lavished on the property with the addition of en-suites, central heating, modern drainage and electrics. In recent years the property has been a successful bed and breakfast, something a prospective purchaser may wish to consider.

The accommodation is extensive and versatile, arranged over two floors with an interesting split level first floor, comprising an entrance hallway, downstairs cloakroom, formal light and airy sitting room with feature fireplace, dining room with fireplace and wood burning stove, breakfast room/snug with fireplace, bespoke kitchen and utility area, galleried first floor landing, a stunning master bedroom with luxury en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms and two further bedrooms in addition to a separate shower room.

Outside, the property is approached via a private driveway through a gated entrance from Pluckley Road to a large parking area. The large front garden is lawned with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubbery, a Japanese style garden area to the front, vegetable beds and an attractive paved patio area. In addition, there is a beautiful woodland area with woodland walk, backing onto fields along with an office, workshop and log store. The total plot extends to 1.52 acres.

Locality


Situated in a most beautiful part of the Kent countryside, Pluckley is famous for its orchards and farmland and, in particular, being the setting chosen for the television series “The Darling Buds of May”. The village enjoys three historic pubs, Church, Post Office & General Stores, butcher's shop, farm shop and a well respected primary school. 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 a main line railway station in the village which provides fast access to London Bridge, Canon Street and Ashford International station with its high speed 37 minute service to London St Pancras and 2 hours 15 minutes to Paris Gard du Nord. Excellent road networks are also available leading to the A20 and M20 at junction 9, some 6 miles distant, providing access to London and the Kent coast.

The village is also just 5 miles west of the market town of Ashford, which provides a wealth of shopping options including supermarket choices from Waitrose, M&S, Sainsburys, Tesco and Asda along with High Street and out-of-town Designer Outlet facilities. There are also a wide variety of leisure and sports facilities in the Ashford area along with a great selection of schools, with both state and private education alternatives.

High quality properties in locations such as this rarely make an appearance on the open market and we strongly urge any interested applicants to make immediate arrangements to view to avoid disappointment.
