A rare chance to acquire lovely extended detached Edwardian Country Home with five bedrooms and four reception rooms in beautiful plot of 2.92 acres in the pretty rural village of Grafty Green.

This attractive home has been owned by the same vendor for the past 36 years, a testament to what a much loved and happy home it has been. During that time it has been extended and renovated to the house you see today and yet offers further potential for alteration (subject to consents). The extension was originally for an annexe but now is used as the main living space along with the principal bedroom suite.

The extensive accommodation comprises entrance hall, snug, dining room, 20'10" kitchen/breakfast room, utility, ground floor shower room, study/rear hall and a 16'10" living room. To the first floor there is a generous landing leading to the principal bedroom with a large en-suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms, a single bedroom and main family bathroom.

The house is approached by a gated driveway which leads to a concrete parking area and an extensive flagstone terrace ideal for taking in the evening sun along with enjoying the views across your land. There is a sizeable timber building which comprises a garden store, tack room and a large workshop. Behind this there is a three box stable block and a shepherds hut, a perfect escape.

The total plot measures approximately 2.92 acres and works ideally as an equestrian property or for use as a small holding, indeed the vendor currently has an arrangement with a local farmer for sheep. With generous fenced grass paddocks of of various sizes overlooking the countryside. Across the road is the Who'd A Thought It public house/restaurant, ideal for visiting friends and family.

Locality

The property is located in Grafty Green, a pretty village in the Weald of Kent between the villages of Lenham and Headcorn. The village benefits from two local public houses one of which is a restaurant with accommodation. The house is surrounded by the beautiful Kent countryside with plentiful places to explore and discover, a wonderful playground for the outdoor enthusiast.

Being located between Lenham and Headcorn, you have the benefit of accessing two mainline railway stations with connections to both London and the coast. Headcorn station is 4 miles away which is on the Charing Cross line and Lenham station is just 2.8 miles on the Victoria line. Both villages offer a range of shopping, eating and schooling options. In addition, Junction 8 of the M20 motorway is just 6.5 miles for those needing vehicular connections.
